We are glad when we can spice the line-up with something less typical and now we have the chance. The project NADER SADEK bears the name of the Egyptian conceptual artist which has gotten into the world of metal thanks to the cooperation with Attila Csihar of Mayhem. Nader's band has included, in studio and on stage members and ex-members of bands like Cryptopsy, Death, Mayhem, Obscura, Beyond Creation, Cattle Decapitation, Morbid Angel or Vader. Darkened and atmospheric death metal is in its live form enriched by a very distinctive visual presentation.
We all have a lot to look forward to. Same in the case of our Greek guests of DEAD CONGREGATION. One of the most prestigious representatives of current blasphemous death metal. Evil melodies, raw sound, hyperfast blastbeats mixed with ultraslow riffs – these are just few ingredients of their metal with a great potential of mesmerizing the listener. They brought out a new EP called "Sombre Doom" this year on which they continue on their own path and they will meet the audience of Gothoom festival on it soon.
Of course, the organizing band of the festival cannot be absent. DOOMAS has made their name thanks to numerous appearance in Slovakia and abroad, both in clubs and on other festivals. They shared the stage with many great bands and have learned a lot. Professional, but from the heart, those are the characteristics of their act based on dark doom that is no stranger to strong melodies either..
Our last addition for today is also a Slovak band. DEHYDRATED have left the scene after a series of demos, splits and finally a record "Ideas". With their distinctive style, they left a robust mark on the Slovak underground of 1990's. Now, they are back with Dragan (ex-Depresy) on vocals and their performance do not miss a thing. Just check it by yourselves.
NADER SADEK, DEAD CONGREGATION, DOOMAS a DEHYDRATED on GOTHOOM 2017!
