In order to give you more to look forward to on the next edition of Gothoom festival, this time we'll bring twice as many bands into the line-up and we will introduce 6 more participants of our little metal celebration. The first one is the cult band ABSU. These Texans devote themselves to very specific occultly flavoured black metal with thrash elements and they are really special not only because their frontman Proscriptor is also the drummer of the band.
The fans of uncompromising and relentless death metal can celebrate the presence of masters of the genre, the islanders of BEHEADED. These gentlemen propagate Malta's metal scene since 1991 and since than they perfected their form of brutal death metal.
A nice crushing dose of European old school death metal will be brought by BURNING HATRED from Holland. They started 14 years ago, yet their full length debut came out only this year. So, they had a lot of time to practice their craft.
Another representative of dark genres will come from Sweden. IXXI will deploy their sometimes surprisingly hit-like, yet at the same time true black metal.
Real "hitness" will be brought by our Austrian neighbours PAIN IS with their fresh groove metal which combines catchy riffs with melodic moments and solid heaviness.
And so that there is not a shortage of black metal, the defenders of Etruscan culture VOLTUMNA will attack with their more modern and epic black/death.
ABSU, BEHEADED, BURNING HATRED, IXXI, PAIN IS and VOLTUMNA on Gothoom 2017.
