Our country has finally encountered a proper winter weather and that created and ideal scenery for our next addition which comes from the cold north of Europe. DIABOLICAL will come from Sweden and will represent straightforward death metal at its finest. Their roots go back to the nineties but they managed to evolve with time and their latest release "Neogenesis" manages to sound really fresh and modern. Perfectly blended mixture of death metal speed and heaviness, epic and dark atmosphere and a right amount of melody. A great predisposition for a hard-hitting live show.
We'll have two other additions, both from Slovakia and both having a lot of experience on the scene. GALADRIEL are in some sense similar to our Swedish guests. They stick to what suits them, but they have taken their music through eras with style. Playing since 1995, they commemorated their anniversary last year with a special EP "Lost in the Ryhope Wood" and we can only assume that the majority of their live set will stem from that record. We'll see what their return to Gothoom after few years will look like.
OBLITERATE started even three years earlier but decided to go a different way. Mainly in the recent years they have shifted their style and changed from grind core to a hard to describe prog/experimental extreme metal. This transformation is clear especially with their latest record "Superboring". Their music is sometimes harder to process but their live shows are energetic and wild and that is what we are looking forward to on our stage.
DIABOLICAL, GALADRIEL and OBLITERATE on Gothoom 2016!
