Inkubus Sukkubus

Inkubus Sukkubus are a Pagan Gothic Rock Band Who have been touring and releasing albums since they formed in 1989. The original aim of the band was (as it still is today) to be the vehicle in which the celebration of the Pagan experience could be conveyed. Initially the band was called Incubus Succubus, in the spring of `95 it was decided that the spelling of the band’s name would change to Inkubus Sukkubus for numerological reasons, and with this came other notable changes. The live band went through a stunning metamorphosis and they now play with a drum machine and full programmed orchestral backing from sequencers giving the richness and diversity of sound and emotion previously found only in the recorded band.

2019 was the 30th anniversary for Inkubus Sukkubus and saw them release “Lilith Rising”, the band’s 25th album. During the Covid 19 pandemic they released their first book entitled ‘Tales of Witchcraft and Wonder’ and in 2021 released their most recent album ‘The Way of the Witch’. Inkubus Sukkubus have toured Germany, France, Belgium, America, as well as the UK and they continue to consolidate their position as the world’s biggest and most popular Pagan Rock band.

Witch of the Vale

Witch of the Vale are Erin and Ryan, an unsettling electronic duo from the serene shores of Loch Lomond and the remote Outer Hebridean Isles. Erin and Ryan began creating music together after identifying a shared love of a particular style of dark, melodic music which they felt was missing from the current scene. Having taught themselves how to record, mix and engineer their own unique sound.

Witch of the Vale are best identified by their haunting vocal style coupled with harmonic synths. These in turn are starkly contrasted by deep drones and abrasive drums. With Erin’s sincere, melancholic lyrics, their sound is at once ethereal and devastating. Live, their performance has been described as compelling and tortured, an atmospheric and deeply emotional experience. After the critical acclaim of their first album Commemorate, Witch of the Vale have recently followed up with a new single, Love of a Father in advance of a second album.

Rhombus

Rhombus are one of the finest Goth Rock bands to emerge from the North of England in many years.

Mixing male and female vocals with swirling guitars, driving bass with powerful drums and electric violin, they combine some of the best elements of traditional 80s/90s UK Goth, with their own modern, upbeat approach.

In addition to their studio indulgences, Rhombus have cultivated an exceptional reputation for their live performance, winning over audiences and powering the party, whether it be in an intimate club venue or from a festival stage.

http://www.rhombus.org.uk/

Auger

From within the endless warren of tunnels, in the darkest depths of the mine, a new sound awakens.

Founded in July 2017 by singer and producer, Kyle J Wilson, and guitarist, Kieran Thornton, Auger quickly sold out their debut CD single ‘New Life’ / ‘My Guardian’ (Rebco Records UK), gaining radio play as far away as North America.

Over the past year they’ve been unleashing their dramatic live performance on the European mainland and have undertaken shows in Germany (September 2018, as tour support for Stoneman), Finland (July 2018, Lumous Festival) and Belgium (August 2018, W-Fest). The year of 2018 has seen Auger support Stoneman, Solar Fake, Massive Ego, Sulpher and in November, Lord Of The Lost, on all the UK dates of their ‘Thornstar Tour’. In total, Auger, conquered seven different countries in 2018, delivering a passionate performance as far as Rakvere, Estonia.

Auger’s hard-hitting sound is a unique fusion of neue deutsche härte, industrial, electronica and metal. Musical reference points include Lord Of The Lost, Blutengel, Project Pitchfork, Mesh, VOLA, Type O Negative, Gothminister, Mono Inc., Starset and Eisbrecher.

CHROM

 

CHROM were formed in May 2007 by Christian Marquis and Thomas Winters, after both discovered their mutual love for solid, club-compatible yet melodic Electro sounds. The group’s name is a combination of the two musician’s first names (CHRis and tOM.) CHROM stands for an effective synthesis of Synth Pop, EBM and Club-Electro, i.e.: massive beats and powerful bass with a harder edge, garnished with ultra-catchy melodies. The debut album “Electroscope” was released in 2010 to a lot of critical acclaim. The band has since toured repeatedly and highly successfully as support for the Berlin-based legend Blutengel and played many major festivals. In March 2012, CHROM released their second outing “Synthetic
Movement” on Out Of Line Music, which further elaborates on the group’s trademark fusion of Club and electronic Pop music. Album number 3, “Peak & Decay, followed in 2016 and had the duo releasing their most mature and versatile work to date. Tours and big festival shows followed and the band is now working on a follow-up. Life is dancing to an electronic beat… and CHROM’s urban club-Pop is the soundtrack!

Last July

Last July are a UK based Dark Romantic band with a sound derived from a wide breadth of influences including Goth, New Romantic and Rock. Their songs tell stories of emotion and sorrow; though far from morbid their music remains upbeat with an optimistic edge. Passionate about performing live, they blend dark atmospheres with driving guitars and strong melodic vocals.

Initially formed as a two-piece, Last July quickly gathered a following after playing to a packed audience at the Resolution Hotel during Whitby Goth Weekend in 2009. Releasing their debut EP the following year, they received welcoming reviews and gained airplay on internet radio. In 2011 Last July embarked on a new chapter with the addition of guitarist Nevla (ex-Rome Burns/All living Fear) to further expand their sound. After a string of successful gigs and festival appearances the band turned their attention to recording their first full-length album, ‘A True Story of a Lie’ was released the following year to critical acclaim. Now frequenting bigger stages the band saw fit to recruit a bass player, welcoming Nevla’s old band mate H (ex-Rome Burns) into the fold. 2013 was a busy year, with a second album written, a European distribution deal signed, and the release of a new remix album ‘Perceptions’ featuring re-works by Pretentious, Moi?, Cryogenica, DeathBoy and more. Alas this year also saw Nevla leaving to concentrate on parenthood, but new blood was found in the form of Sam (ex-Voices of Masada/Felinedown) bringing new a new dynamic to the lineup. Back on the road, 2014 saw Last July busy performing a string of gigs across the UK and also winess their first foray into Europe to play at the Dark Diamonds Festival in Austria.

After a brief hiatus in 2014-15, Last July are back and gigging ferociously with a new line-up and a new found enthusiasm.
