First bands announced for Hordes Of Belial – Nine Lives

2018 has just got started, and here at Slow Dragon Music, we’re hitting it with a big ol’ ‘one-two’ of announcements for the ninth yearly Hordes Of Belial.

The first of two bands now announced for the annual Dundee event, Preston’s Solitary have unleashed no less than three albums via Copro Records, and strode across stages with Lawnmower Deth, Xentrix, and Cerebral Fix. Their most recent release, The Diseased Heart Of Society, sees the band at their most virulent, and raises the thrash bar several notches.

“A modern sounding exercise in streamlined thrash brutality!”

Worship Metal (album of the week)

“A bullet train into the black, with no return ticket.”

The second of our first two bites are the no-less-powerful King Leviathan, who have taken their blackened thrash to some enviable spots; Mammothfest, Bloodstock, Thrashersaurus, Frankfest, and The Night Before Uprising. They also received Album Of The Year nominations for their Paean Heretica debut full-length, from Totally Tankered, Metal Gods TV.

“A smart, intelligent response to what is and what was…”

Moshville Times

“A debut album more passionate, more ambitious and better executed than any band has a right to.”
