With Mammothfest 2015 now only 3 weeks away, Worship Metal has selected the 5 bands you simply cannot miss at the South coast’s premier metal festival!
Brighton’s unique 3-dayer promises to encompass the entire spectrum of metal’s various sub-genres and whether your tastes lie in death metal, thrash metal, doom metal or an amalgamation of all three, these 5 ‘must see’ bands should cater to your every whim…..
My Silent Wake
My Silent Wake’s Damnatio Memoriae is stacking up to be one of the doom metal albums of the year and Ian Arkley (Seventh Angel, Paramaecium, Ashen Mortality) and his men are bound to bring a crushingly heavy, yet ornate beauty, to Mammothfest when they play at Sticky Mikes Frog Bar on Sunday 4th October.
With a sprawling back catalogue to draw from, My Silent Wake’s setlist is anything but predictable! Whether you’ll be treated to the gothic death/doom of their exquisite 2nd album A Garland Of Tears or the acoustic-folk grandeur of tracks from the sprawling The Anatomy Of Melancholy or be bludgeoned by the Sabbath-sized riffing featured on “Of Fury” and “And So It Comes To An End” from the aforementioned Damnatio Memoriae, is anyone’s guess.
Either way, these trad doom/death-doom experts are highly likely to lay waste to your eardrums with swathes of gut-rumbling riffs and an ear for unnerving melody when they hit the stage. Music made for fans of heavy metal at it’s purest, we suggest you do yourself a favour and check My Silent Wake out; a love of doom metal is not necessarily a prerequisite!
