Fire Red Empress — facebook.com/fireredempress
Formed in 2014 FIRE RED EMPRESS burst from the gates to unleash an impressive arsenal of huge stoner rock riffs and soaring anthems.
Following blistering performances at the UK’s Bloodstock Festival in 2015, and Summer Breeze in Germany, the band quickly garnered the attention of über-producer Jacob Hansen, whose work with Danish rock giants Volbeat speaks for itself. Recorded in Hansen’s studio in Ribe, Denmark, FIRE RED EMPRESS emerged with their debut album BLACK MORPHINE, including a track featuring and co-written with the Heavy Metal legend Brian Tatler of Diamond Head. Praise from the likes of Metal Hammer and Classic Rock Magazine followed (with the latter calling them “a hard-charging, riff-fuelled, radio-baiting monster”)
In August 2017 the lead single DEAD NATURE was released, and it was soon receiving airplay from Daniel P Carter on Radio 1, Planet Rock Radio, Kerrang Radio and Scuzz TV. The heavy riffs combined with the often ethereal, occasionally guttural, but always emotional vocals perhaps showcased a glimpse of what is to come…
Two Year Break — facebook.com/twoyearbreak
Two Year Break take influence from bands such as Mallory Knox, You Me At Six and Twin Atlantic. Their catchy choruses and infectious hooks will have you whistling their tunes for days!
Dead At Eleven — facebook.com/deadateleven
Dead At Eleven are Londoners from France and England whose shared love of Black Sabbath, Metallica, The Prodigy and Queens of the Stone Age has been influenced by this cross cultural heritage. Driving, relentless guitars and great vocal melodies form the spine of their sound, which for a rock band has a refreshing mission: to make people dance and forget about real life.
The Reaper — facebook.com/thereaperrocks
The Reaper are a heavy rock / groove metal band from Chipping Norton. With an average age of 18, this band have had a successful couple of years, performing on the main stage at Breakout Festival alongside Skindred, Funeral for a Friend and Betraying The Martyrs.
Fortify — UK — facebook.com/FortifyUK
Up and coming Easy-core quintet Fortify hail from Thurrock, Essex and formed in 2015. The band consists of vocalist Anna Louise, Kieran McLoughlin Spink and Charlie Fallows on guitar, Billy Byford handling the bass, and Jamie Smith hammering away on the drums. The tuneful rock crew honed their craft by playing a slew of shows around the greater London area and have played many shows in and around their hometown. Describing their sound as a mix of A Day To Remember, Tonight Alive and Hands Like Houses, the band have many different influences which they have culminated into helping develop an original sound.
