Slaughterpit 2017: First band announcements

Six months from now, Hordes Of Belial’s Slaughterpit will return as a one-off, two stage event. While running around half the number of bands which appear at Hordes Of Belial itself, it is intended as a sister event, sitting near the start of the UK’s festival season, with HOB towards the end. To kick off it’s first run, Slow Dragon Music is pleased to tell you that appearances by Gehtika and Aghast! can now be confirmed for Slaughterpit 2017!

With their stage show set to new heights, honed at events such as Beermageddon, Bloodstock, and Mammothfest, Gehtika’s breed of blackened death metal is fresh and vital. Their 2015 album A Monster In Mourning was met with a positive reception, taking them to the next level in underground metal.

Lurching from the abrasive to the melodic on a pin-head, Hertfordshire’s Aghast offer up Something Else; Something Rotten, indeed. This most recent of their releases features not just extreme metal, but some rather surprising, off-kilter remixes, and shows a band who really know how to bring a different flavour to the table.


More bands are ready to be announced soon, with advance tickets to be available from www.wegottickets. Join us on the Facebook event page to keep up to date. It’s gonna be a loud one!
