If you liked Home of Metal, come and see Capsule’s sister project Supersonic Festival in Birmingham this weekend.
For one weekend each year Digbeth’s arches vibrate with strange, wonderful sounds as the Custard Factory becomes the focal point for one of the UK’s most distinctive and respected music festivals. As well as giving a warm welcome to many influential, era-defining artists, Supersonic has an uncanny knack for highlighting new acts before everyone else is talking about them, and when you combine this with a friendly, bustling atmosphere you have a package which draws fans, performers and industry folks from across the globe.
Headlined by Sabbath worshippers Electric Wizard
The heaviest band in the world. The oblivion and ecstasy of crushing doom and high grade marijuana, a sonic aural trip far, far away from this world, where only cyclopean walls of crackling vintage valve amplifiers set to the full overdrive and primal ritualistic beats can wash away all the filth and drudgery of everyday life. Our music is DoomMetal, the only true definition. We toll the bell of hell, our sound is a crushing behemoth of funeral march psychedelia.
Violent, bleak and ritualistic, we bow to the black altar of the RIFF. We do not rock, we kill!
