Don’t forget this Sunday is the return of Sonic Obliteration, last year saw Cerebral Bore tear it up, this year brings Ulcerate and Svart Crown to our shores with a serious amount of amazing support. If you don’t know Ulcerate what is wrong with you?!! Technical layered extreme metal, I imagine if Mastodon or Neurosis had gone down a Death Metal route they may have ended up sounding something like Ulcerate. Check them out here:

|||SONIC OBLITERATION 2012|||
The return of Sonic Obliteration is here!
Last year, we brought you CEREBRAL BORE & more. Now in 2012 we present to you another all-dayer of quality Extreme Metal featuring:
Two years after invading Europe with Nile, Krisiun, Grave, ULCERATE are back to showcase their new album ‘The Destroyers Of All’, which is a beast of a fiery, destructive record!”. ULCERATE, formed in New Zealand in 2000 and recently signed to Relapse records have been making waves with every album they’ve produced; especially The Destroyers of All released in 2011.
Ambitious, oppressive and expansive, with a strict adherence to the tradition of total bleakness the band is becoming known for, The Destroyers of All presents the most atmospheric and challenging listen from the band to date. “Their latest effort is certainly one of the most exciting album of the year, imagined a perfect mix between Gorguts, Deathspell Omega and Hate Eternal … just impressive “(Terrorizer Mag Uk)
SVART CROWN (FRA)
After a successful year of touring with Septic Flesh, Shining, Melechesh and playing main Europe festivals (Hellfest, Brutal Assault, Hammerfest …), SVART CROWN will crush the stage again with their genuine evil Death Metal.
DEAD BEYOND BURIED
DBB have been together since 1998 and play extreme metal that is modern and traditional. They have have shared stages with Krisiun, Hate Eternal, Zyklon, Opeth, Alestorm, Vital Remains amongst others. Their album, Condemned To Misery released 2006 received 9/10 reviews in major metal press. Inheritors Of Hell released 2010 also received good press reviews. Album number 3 is written and due out in Feb/Mar 2012
This is the warm-up show of NEXUS INFERIS before they embark on their monster of a European tour playing alongside the legendry Cannibal Corpse! On this tour N.I, will also be sharing the stage with Behemoth, Legion of the Damned, Misery Index & Suicide Angels. Be sure to catch their debut UK performance!
NEXUS INFERIS encompasses a master design of future extreme metal. Savage yet imaginative guitar riffs and relentless battery churn at the core of this cold dystopian death machine. Surrounded and cursed by devices of sinister orchestration, dynamic textures and digital sound designs. Possessed by a vocal threat spanning both human and non-human spectrums, N.I have been working on their debut release “A VISION OF THE FINAL EARTH” which promises to deliver a spark of innovation into the arena of extreme metal. This creature comes to life on stage at SONIC OBLITERATION 2012!
Unfathomable Ruination play an intense and brutal style of death metal. The band, based in and around London, UK – comprising members and ex-members of a number of established UK extreme metal bands; including Bloodshot Dawn, Embryonic Depravity, Fleshrot, and Trifixion – formed in early 2010. Drawing on influences such as: Internal Suffering, Disgorge (US), Abysmal Torment, Origin, Dying Fetus, Death and Suffocation they started writing material and after a few practice sessions they recorded a self titled Demo/ EP. A full length release can be expected early this year.
London based LVCIFYRE will no doubt be making an impact at SONIC OBLITERATION 2012 with their ferocious brand of Blackened Death Metal. In 2009 LVCIFER welcomed Menthor of CORPUS CHRISTII, in has capacity as a blastbeat conjuror. Embrace yourselves for this devastatingly evil performance.
After last year’s killer set at Sonic Obliteration, CYTHRUAL are back to showcase another bone-crushing Death Metal performance featuring some of their new material! Prehistoric Death Arbiters, Masters of Sound & Temporal Dynamics; Invoke Visions of Might & Power Through Brutal Ambition
Sarpanitum are a atmospheric brutal-blackened death-metal band who formed in 2003 and first debut album was “Despoilment of Origin” on Galactic Records (2007). There début, “Despoilment Of Origin” is a eloquently guttural performance of mythological blackened death metal that leaves only ashes in its wake rooted in self-acquired lore of Ancient Babylonia, Sumeria and Akkadia and the mythology around the time.
Formed in September 2009 Trifixion came together and started blasting out crushing riffs and brutal noise with a technical edge and thus it begun.The band travelled to Rome to record at 16th Cellar Studio with Stefano Morabito (Producer of Fleshgod Apolcaypse, Hour of Penance and more). The Album ‘A Utopia for the Damned’ is a concept of the awareness of the planet as a whole and what we have done to ourselves in the name of Religion, Profit, Politics and Control. TRIFIXION have toured and shared the stage with bands such as Malevolent Creation, Vomitory and Cerebral Bore.
Formed in early 2009 Bloodworks are four teenagers from the depths of Gosport that play a blend of thrashy death metal. Influenced by a vast array of music, the band have forged a unique sound that has been described as sounding like “a bus driving through a school”.
In late 2009 the band recorded and released a two track demo CD which has since been the catalyst for landing many gigs across the …south coast including notable support slots with bands such as: Animals As Leaders, Breed 77, Malefice, Annotations Of An Autopsy, Ingested, Martyr Defiled, Postmortem Promises, The Defiled, Lazarus AD, Ted Maul, and Bonded By Blood. Since recording those demos the band’s sound had matured into a much tighter, more aggressive force, intent on provoking the listener’s anger and causing chaos, which is showcased fully on their freshly released debut EP which they started work on in late 2010.
SEEDS OF DETEST
Since recording the four track EP with Metal Legend Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, Evile,) Seed of Detest have been obliterating the metal scene, and are rapidly gaining momentum.
