Sinnergod are a Goth/Alternative Metal band hailing from Manchester, UK.
Formed by Twin brothers Mark and Chris Hampson in 2007, with the aim to create a band that would create a layered wall of sound consisting of guitar driven riffs and symphonic keyboards.

Sinnergod have built a loyal fan base throughout the United Kingdom following a full UK Tour with Blaze Bayley (ex Iron Maiden) and support slots with artist such as The Misfits, Bam Margera, Eso, The Defiled, Deathstars, Sarah Jezebel Deva from Cradle Of Filth, Voodoo Six and KMFDM as well as Festival Appearances at Bloodstock Open Air Festival and Dark-Cide-Fest. In October 2012 the band released their first ever Music video which featured ex Iron Maiden singer Blaze Bayley and hit 10,000 views on YouTube in the first 2 weeks.

The debut album ‘The Seven Deadly Sinphonies’ was released on Halloween 2013 which featured special guests Bill Moseley (Devil’s Rejects, Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Tobias Keast (Esoterica).

 

seed of sorrow

Seed of Sorrow are a five piece death metal band originating from Inverness, Scotland, who are dedicated to producing the hardest, angriest brand of metal possible. In January 2014 at The Eagle Bar in Inverness they competed against 18 other bands and were crowned as the winners of the Highland Battle Of The Bands 2014.

The band has been together for three years and comprises of Lewis Goodwin on vocals, Mark Savage on guitar, Nick Laidlaw on guitar, John Murray on drums and Stewart McArthur on bass guitar.All five members of Seed Of Sorrow are self taught musicians and Lewis G (Seed of Sorrow) says ” Our songs cover subject matter ranging from punching the f*** out of people to the pointlessness of existence to the destruction of the earth by the very people who claim to be improving it”

Appearing in magazines such as Terrorizer, Firebrand After Dark and radio stations Metal Nation Radio, Threat Con Radio, Rock N Wrestle Radio and Moray Firth Radio throughout 2013 led to ending the year on a high point as they were filmed at Les-Festive 2013 in December performing their track ‘Death F*ck Ritual’ for Metal Outlaw TV. They have a five track E.P. named Vice Like Grip which was released in August 2013. Tracks are on Soundcloud, live videos are on their Facebook page and Youtube.

Willow Hill
Oct 20 @ 10:00 pm – Oct 21 @ 12:00 am

Willow hill

 

Willow Hill is a burst of color on the canvas of modern country music. The husband and wife duo of Alexandra & C.T. Fields has earned a loyal fan base across the entire United States with Alexandra’s iconic soulful voice and C.T.’s infectious guitar riffs. Having written songs together for over 12 years, the two enjoyed some national success in their rock group Lovebettie with a Rolling Stone “Band to Watch” mention, and over 200 dates per year of touring. The band was also a regular name at major festivals like Sturgis, Rocklahoma, and Summerfest – where they supported the legendary Pat Benatar. During that time the couple began writing songs outside of the realm of rock and roll, and finally found where their hearts felt at home… in country music.

While admiring the authentic songwriting of country radio that they were raised on, and attending festivals like Stage Coach Music Festival and Delaware’s Junction Festival, Alexandra & C.T. penned the first songs that would be the foundation for Willow Hill, and recorded their debut EP, Highway One. Recorded in Nashville’s historic Benchmark studios, Highway One is produced by Zach Abend with the assistance of Executive Producer Jeff Cohen of As You Wish Music, who’s credits include songs with Sugarland, Big & Rich, and The Band Perry. The Ep has immediately gained steam with some of the industry’s biggest tastemakers, and is set to make a splash on mainstream country radio.
