COME ONE COME ALL! 'Tis once more the time of Rapture! And to celebrate it, we have brought to various treats of the metallic sort!
From the ashes of Akercocke come this mighty collective bringing us their blackened ferocity. With such a pedigree of musicians at their disposal we're honoured to have them headline our little show! Their debut work 'From the Human Forest Create a Fugue of Imaginary Rain' is out now on Candlelight records!
These happy chappies from the wrong side of the Pennines are going to bring you their brand of hilariously brutal death metal. Listen out for such future classics as 'Service Station Masturbation' and 'Twisted Fister'.
OLD CORPSE ROAD
From the lands of Darlington come these practiotioners of the dark arts! Merging the art of Black Metal with tales of old British folklore these hard-working chaps bring you an intensely well-honed live show that is well loved by many fans of the British underground metal scene.
These local pioneers of metallic noise will be bringing their raw, unpolished brand of Metal to Rapture crowds. Mixing Death, Doom, Crust and all other varieties of filth this will no doubt be one of the day's more crushing performances!
From Halifax, the land that pioneered Death/Doom, come these fellas with their seamless concoction of Melancholy and Brutality. No doubt filling their set with tracks from their well-recieved 'Salvation' album, they won't be worth missing!
Leeds' very own Ladies (and Gent) of Doom will be debuting their new drummer just for us. Expect nothing short of prime Blackened Doom!
One of Yorkshire's finest proponents of classic old-school doom, prepare for prime Sabbath/Saint Vitus/Pentagram worship!
Huddersfield's Sanhedrin will be bringing their intense Black/Death fusion to the mix. All should check out their latest EP 'And on into the Eternal Nether...of Forgotten and Stricken Souls' for some good times.
"Born, got pissed, played riffs, will eventually die". Leeds denizens should be familiar with their sludgy, swampy riffage and their vertically challenged bassist.
Old school Death Metal with a taste of Black. These Wakefield riff monsters will offer you no relent in bringing you their sickening aural devastations!
Brutal, Grindy, Technical Insanity courtesy of this nutty pair from our lands. Prepare to shit yourself in sheer musical envy as they blast and shred their way through a set of Batshit death metal.
The Black/Death upstarts from Leeds will inject some fresh local fire into the day's events. They'll no doubt be getting further up on bills as time goes on, catch 'em before they make it!
If all these bands aren't enough, you'll get to enjoy the grotesque artworks of T Bare McClough and DJs (Us) playing not-shitty metal until 2am. Go on.
