Doom over London III tickets go on sale Ahab to headline

Ahab Doom over London III relentless garage Saturday 17th November 2012

Doom Over London, Relentless Garage, Highbury, London Saturday 17th November 2012

Tickets for Doom Over London III have now gone on sale.

To say we are excited about this is an understatement.  Ahab have confirmed they will be headlining and playing their first ever UK show.  Following hearing their 2005 Oath demo and then their monstrous debut "The Call Of The Wretched Sea" in 2006 it's been an aching wait for them to finally make it to our shores.  With 2009's "The Divinity of Oceans" showing the debut was no fluke, this could well give the Skepticism gig a run for it's money for Doom event of the year in the UK.

Everything Went Heavier alldayer Nottingham

Everything went heavier alldayer 2012 hang the bastard helvis witchsorrow nottingham

Everything Went Heavier, Nottingham's legendary all day event is returning for one day only at its spiritual home, The Old Angel on October 6th 2012. The event will bring together ten of the UK's finest underground stoner, sludge, doom, punk and hardcore bands, all in the name of the DIY spirit.


Topping the bill are HANG THE BASTARD, who are just going from strength to strength. Releasing records through labels like Purgatory, Holy Roar and now on Thirty Days Of Night, these guys deal out riffs and attitude by the fistful. Sounding like the bastard offspring of Integrity, Eyehategod and Electric Wizard, it's no surprise that they can play to both hardcore and heavy crowds without compromise.


The big surprise is that fans of The Wicker Man, HELVIS are reforming for this special event. Bloody Kev and his merry band of scumbags, who all did time in a plethora of late 90s hardcore bands, will be wheeling their pagan thrash metal out of the retirement home and threatening anyone within a 12ft radius of the stage. Hold onto your hats and your drinks, as we reverence the sacrifice once more.
