FKU - www.myspace.com/moshoholics : The Masters of Horror Metal from Sweden in their exclusive UK debut. The moshing beast we know as F.K.Ü. : short for Freddy Kruegers Ünderwear. Inspired by 80's thrash, Horror movies and of course beer.Once you've tasted this hot dish of destruction...you will end up begging for more!
Hospital of Death - www.myspace.com/hospitalofdeath : You all know the score; Hospital Of Death are an 80's styled old school thrash metal band from sleepy Cheshire. The mission of H.O.D. is to create a 50/50 mix of NWOBHM & old school thrash metal that enduces the listener to drink and party heavily.
Savage Messiah - www.myspace.com/savagemessiahmetal : New millennium melodic thrashers Savage Messiah hail from London, England. Their album will be produced by Chris Tsangarides, who has worked with Judas Priest,Sabbath and Thin Lizzy.
Doctor Death - www.myspace.com/drdeathdie : London's Dr. Death - An explosion of zombies, battle robots, wizards and toxic thrash. Lovely.
At the moment this is our last show. I'll be looking at what to do in the future depending on the turnout for this and the Sarpanitum one next week. Whilst I don't want people to turn up to these gigs just for the sake of it, I should also make it clear that apathetic turnouts for these will 100% be the final nail in the coffin for Reanimator If you're not interested fine, but be in no doubt, apathy and laziness is KILLING live music throughout this country. If people would rather stay home or sit in a pub than go and see some bands then thats their choice also, but they have no right to moan about anything. Wait till we fold, book your own underground shows (with international talent, not just crappy local bands) and then see how you like it.
On a more positive note, we're really stoked to be bringing FKU over to England for the first time ever for what should be an amazing show!
I have to say I agree with Stoney that the metal scene IS full of negative remarks, comments, opinions, and attitudes and is incredibly unsupportive of itself. On the flipside though I've always seen it that the nature of the shows we book and our general refusal to compromise on certain aspects of things has basically condemned us to running low-key poorly attended shows forever, so I can't really complain too much. We're doing things the hard way on purpose, really. I'd rather talk about the gig though.
