AS HEADLINERS, FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME…
-Chronos: Forming in March 2010, Chronos are a Post-Metal band from Kent taking influences from the likes of; Devil Sold His Soul, Rinoa, Neurosis, Red Sparowes, Cult of Luna, Isis and God Is An Astronaut. They released their 4 track demo for free on their Bandcamp page. With a new 2 track EP coming out in january 2011 they aim to play as many shows to as many people all around the country.
-Vidina: “Vidina kicked off their gigging career in January 2010, playing to packed out crowds. They now have a reputation for being one of the best new metal bands in the UK with a live show with enough energy that won’t convince you otherwise.”
“Harlow-based progressive metal quintet Vidina. Their set was a musically intricate blend of Sikth-like fretboard wizardry, djenty grooves and more reflective and melodic clean guitar interludes, all strung together with a vocal approach that combined guttural, rumbling roars and full-throated screaming. The band handled the diverse shifts in feel within their compositions with aplomb, playing demanding riffage with practiced ease. The highlight of the set was ‘Memories’, blending punishingly heavy chugging riffage, flurries of rapid-fire tremolo picking and more expansive passages to particularly arresting effect… from a set that melded technical riffage, lead-heavy grooves and expansive atmospheric passages with confidence and skill.”
