HORDES OF BELIAL – THE BURNING H8 / Beat Generator Live!, Dundee, Scotland / September 2017

HoB 8 17Full bill for Hordes Of Belial – The Burning H8

You’d have to try really hard to NOT find something to love at any of the previous Hordes Of Belial events, and 2017’s outing – The Burning H8 – looks just as likely to 
fulfil that claim. Over the years, HOB has played host to Man Must Die, Ancient Ascendent, The Rotted, Cancerous Womb, Party Cannon, De Profundis, Reign Of Fury, All Consumed, Achren, and many, many more.

Set for Saturday September 30th this year, the two-stage showcase of heavy music features;

Virus (Thrash – Dundee)
Dog Tired (Metal – Edinburgh)
Overoth (Death metal – Belfast)
Damaj (Greenock)
Rabid Bitch Of The North (NWOBHM – Belfast)
Somaesthesia (Edinburgh)
Drekavac (Black metal – Aberdeen)
Perpetua (Metal – Edinburgh)
Dolour (Doom – Edinburgh)
Drive By Killer (Hardcore – Perth)
Catalysis (Metal – Dundee)
Volcano X (Trad metal – Dundee)
Multistorey Lover – (Party rock – Perth)

It’s quite the mix of all things heavy, as has come to be expected of the Hordes Of Belial banner, so true fans of extreme music and its roots are sure to have a show to enjoy and remember. Organisers have promised competitions, merch pre-orders and more, so keep an eye on the 
Facebook page for updates!
