Reanimator is proud to announce it's first show of 2009... in association with Burned Alive Promotions, a full day of savage grind and brutal death in glorious Wolverhampton:
Links to the bands below... Suffice to say we've got a bunch of the UK's best grind and death metal on one bill, headlined by Belgiums premier grind outfit Leng Tche. It's going to be an absolute fucking monster.
Heard a couple of the bands there, some good... some bad (Reth are absolutely beyond dire!)... however I am just really happy to see there's a Reanimator on. I like the Wolverhampton venue too, so even better!
It's a pleasure to announce Endless Torment for this show. We should still have one more band to confirm.
This show is something Dan and I have talked about doing for a long time and we really wanted to have a mix of styles on there - I know not everybody will be a fan of every band (even I'm not!) but I do think we've got a lineup here thats really strong in terms of representing the UK death metal underground. It's also a chance for me to get some bands on that we'd arranged gigs for before and for one reason or another things fell through in the past. I'm especially excited to get Bonesaw here (all the way from Aberdeen!) We wanted an international headliner and having dealt with the LT guys back in 2007 when their UK tour fell through they were a natrual choice to play.
We chose to do this in Wolves because, to be frank, Birmingham is a fucking waste of space in terms of venues. The Varsity upstairs is perfect for this sort of show, nice and dirty without being a dive, plus its really close to the train station and we've researched a few hotels and hostels nearby for people coming out of town. If it works out, perhaps I'll look at that doom alldayer...
Before anyone else points this out, there is a bit of a clash of bands between our show and the Deathfest the Sunday before in Leeds. We actually didn't consider certain bands for this show based on the fact that we didn't want to 'copy' their lineup but they since confirmed a few bands we'd already booked, which is fair enough. I initially thought that show looked utterly gay but its now looking fairly decent, however ours will be better, of course...
