Hordes Of Belial: Two mores bands announced

Our yearly metal and hard rock showcase, Hordes Of Belial, is ready to spill the beans on another two rather special additions to the bill for the Nine Lives edition.

We’re totally thrilled to, yet again, present one of the UK’s absolute best underground metal bands, Krysthla! Currently out playing live in Europe with Polish death metal legends, Vader, this Northampton based mob are a force unto themselves. Metal Hammer lauded, Amazon charting, HMV recommended, and all round addictively heavy. If you’re not already hooked, get wired in. The Minor Mystery Of Death from their second album Peace In Our Time is a great place to start!

Booms with intention and scale. If there’s one thing that Krysthla do best, it’s make big noise, well.”

Secondly, we’ve cherry-picked a Scottish band who utterly blew away our regular attendees at last year’s Hell On Perth Smashed special. With a mad stage presence, and equally mad vocalist in Evilyn Van Der Hyden, it’s Glasgow’s Splintered Halo. Get ready to take a trip into a maniacally twisted reflection of all those lovely places you recall from childhood stories. Here’s one of their nicer tales…

You will likely not have heard anything like this before.”


Heavy Metal feast packed with melodic hooks, technical drums, soaring solos and occasionally some dirty grooves
