HEAD OF THE DEMON and TAIWAZ – May 1
May 1 @ 19:00 - 23:30
On Walpurgis night, HEAD OF THE DEMON’s third album “Deadly Black Doom” is released. And on the following night the celebration goes on, as the band enters the stage of The Abyss!
HEAD OF THE DEMON, having in its ranks a.o. former Kaamos mastermind Konstantin Papavassiliou, has since its inception in 2012 operated within a sphere beyond what is easily narrowed down to a single genre, but like the promotional text for the new album reads: Not for nothing is it titled “Deadly Black Doom”. “While HEAD OF THE DEMON’s members possess a wealth of experience in the black & death metal undergrounds, their vision is built upon a firm foundation of heavy metal painted in a vibrant array of occult shades.”
Formed in 1985, long well-kept secret TAIWAZ found its rightful spot in the underground connoisseur’s consciousness back in 2013, as one of the band’s 1988 demo anthems was covered by fellow Uppsala horde Watain. The following year’s debut LP and modern classic “I am all”, a partly freshly recorded and partly archival affair, leaves no metalhead with the heart in the right place untouched. If you are into things such as the classic Death SS material, you either own it or should be. Taiwaz is now back with the follow-up “The Uninvited Guest” and we are glad to be hosting the band’s premier Gothenburg gig!
After show DJ set until 02:00 by DJ Delirium, giving all monsterdiggare what they can take!
