Loud Howls Fest 2010

Posted by Captain Beyond Zen on Thursday, February 25, 2010


UK fans of the mighty riff, your prayers are to be answered. Mindzap are proud to announce the inaugural Loud Howls Festival 2010! The Gaff on Holloway Road, London will play host on April 10th and 11th to the finest collection of fuzz to hit these shores since Black Sabbath returned from... their Hamburg club days with a bucket load of doom and a dose of the clap!

The Saturday will be mainly given over to stoner/psych and classic rock and will be headlined by Sun Gods In Exile from Portland, Maine whose debut album was released to rave reviews last year on Small Stone Records. Also appearing on the Saturday will be dirty rock and rollers Grifter, offbeat grunge stoners End of Level Boss, psychedelic blues doomsters Alunah, desert rockers Domes of Silence, Welsh stoners Suns of Thunder, experimental instrumentalists Bodukwe, psych jammers Stubb, trippy doom from Obiat and full throttle stoner from Dusteroid.

Saturday will also feature a surprise after show performance that is shrouded in secrecy!

Sunday is mostly given to Sludge and doom and will be headlined by Stoke noise merchants Charger. Also appearing will be true doom from Witchsorrow and Serpent Venom, sludgey doom blues from Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight, nasty sludge from Koresh, Dead Existence, Berserkowitz and Dopefight, psychedelic noise from Astrohenge, angular post metal from Gorse and wizard obsessed stoner thrash from Invasion.
