Acid Box Presents Rainbow Grave from Birmingham, a super-group of sorts (Napalm Death, Scorn, Doom, Sore Throat) who released their 2019 debut album to much critical acclaim, one of our favourite heavy records of the year for sure, with support from illusive Brighton stoner rock legends ENOS plus some crushing riffs from new sludge metal trio Black Groove.
RAINBOW GRAVE Featuring Nicholas Bullen (founding member of Napalm Death and Scorn) and John Pickering (founding member of Doom and Sore Throat).
Birmingham based Rainbow Grave channel the blank despair of negative punk through layers of distorted psychedelic damage: dirty guitars, freeform pedal abuse and effected vocals coagulate around cyclic bass and drum rhythms in repetitive and minimal structures.
After a 7” split & a 7” single, Rainbow Grave released their debut album last July via God Unknown Records.
“No You” is the sound of disappointment, heartbreak and emptiness.
Enos have gained a reputation as a band to been seen and heard loud and live. A reputation that was cemented by the 2010 release of their first recording, Chapter One and backed up in 2012 with the release of All Too Human.
Enos’ music goes hand in hand with the comic they share their name with. Following the story of the eponymous chimpanzee the music switches from psychedelia, hard and solid riffing and relaxed passages to narrate the tale of Enos’ adventures.
Eastbourne based trio combining dual distorted guitars and drums to create a raw sound of crushing sludge riffs to full effect. Music coming soon.
