Doomsday Outlaw

New single ‘Walk On Water’

Fresh from inking a multi-album record deal with Frontiers Music and signing with fast rising management company, TMR Band Management, DOOMSDAY OUTLAW, release a new single and lyric video for the track, WALK ON WATER.

Released on Friday 25th November Walk On Water, is taken from their acclaimed album, Suffer More.

Bassist, Indy Chanda, said, “Walk On Water is the opening track of our current, self released album, Suffer More and is a great way to discover Doomsday Outlaw with its blend of southern, blues and hard hitting rock n roll.

Singer, Phil Poole, said, “Walk On Water is my view on organised religion, those so called churches that are just there to prey on the vulnerable.”

Walk On Water will be a digital-only release available from all good online outlets from Friday 25th November. It is accompanied by a lyric video produced by Very Metal Art.

Hils Ovation

O2 Academy3 Birmingham 29th October 2016.

If you’re going to celebrate Halloween in style, then it pays to metal up and with Gehtika, Eradikator, The Face Of Ruin, Obzidian and Djinova all set to blast away a few cobwebs and ghouls tonight, the only spirits likely to be left standing will be the alcoholic ones!

And getting tonight off to a flying start amidst a hailstorm of Death Metal were the Coventry based band Djinova. To describe the experience of this band as brutal just doesn’t cut it as these guys go way beyond that, with the bite in the vocals of Tony Overton showing no mercy at all. If you’ve not seen or heard these guys play live before, then believe me when I say they are well worth checking out.

Lots of good things have been happening to Obzidian recently and tonight’s set from the band can most definitely be added to that list aswell, as not a moment was wasted in their delivery of tracks both well known and new. With the forthcoming release of their new album due out on the 28th November, it was a bit of a treat to hear a couple of tracks in advance of that, with the official single ‘Sins Here Are Purified’ being an excellent example of what is about to be unveiled. But if you can’t wait until the end of the month to take a listen to this awesome track for yourself, then you can check out the video for it over on the bands Facebook page now!

You can’t pass up Halloween without a spot of fancy dress and tonight we were besieged with the presence of many great demons, witches, zombies and the odd Beetlejuice or two. But even amidst all those scary characters, it was the figures of Alex Mumford and The Face Of Ruin with their visual homage to Linda Blair and The Exorcist that made the night for me, as never in a million years did I expect that! Thankfully, Alex spared us from the 360 degree head rotation and also the projectile vomit – which was a great relief to me from my position in the pit but what we got instead was one hell of a great melodic death metal set that won’t be forgotten for a long time to come!

Our penultimate band of the evening came in the guise of Eradikator and in capturing the spirit of the event, these guys gave the O2 Academy3 quite a performance tonight. With members of Gehtika and The Face Of Ruin taking to the stage aswell, Eradikator’s adrenaline fuelled thrash flowed freely with Pat Cox absolutely owning the stage tonight. Next up for the band is a slot at The Midlands Metal Crusade VI on the 26th November which will definitely be one not to miss!

When it comes down to picking a Halloween headliner then Gehtika have got to be a dam near perfect choice as these guys are true masters at what they do. Tonight’s set from the band saw them grabbing Halloween by the horns and serving up a blistering death metal set that was as addictive to listen to as their performance was to watch.

The one thing I really love about this band is the theatrical manner in which they deliver their sets and tonight’s gentlemanly shenanigans sat blissfully well with the audience and other band members alike.

Sadly, my enjoyment of their set had to be cut short tonight but not before catching them play their anthemic track ’A Monster In Mourning’ which for me, was the highlight of the night.

Tonight’s celebration of All Hallows’ Eve was certainly done in style, with all five bands putting on quite a show that most definitely hit the spot!
