It has been ten years since the time when a beast called DEMONICAL rose from the ashes of mighty Centinex. Now, four albums, three splits and one, most current, EP "Black Flesh Redemption", we'll have the honour to see these gentlemen on our festival. Crushing, relentless, dirty and raw death metal with a right melodic twist. That's what awaits all the fans of the genre on the 8th edition of Gothoom.
We will also have a nice visit from Finland. One-man-project in the studio, full band on stage. That's AUTHOR. A black metal force which breaths coldness to all directions. True black metal of their liking has been presented on the EP "Kuolevaisen Kirous", which is telling us that the lyrical side will stick to the roots of the musician(s).
An interesting origin story comes with Greek WOMB OF MAGGOTS. They started in 2001, to transform into Inactive Messiah few years later and then split into two bands, one of which embraced the original name and more brutal form of death metal. There is no shortage of fast moments but atmosphere and melodies are not neglected either.
Our last addition for today will be from a seaside area as well. MARTYRIUM come from Malta and they will bring us their form of more modern and melodic black metal under the supervision of the growling throat of their frontwoman Vanjia Obscure.
