Aeternum, Greg(o)rian, GraVil, Phyrexia & Saturnian @ The Boston Music Rooms - 18.1.12


"Formed in early 2011 by a group of experienced young musicians, Aeternum are a five piece Blackened Death Metal band based in London.

Brought together by our shared influences of Dissection, Behemoth, Necrophobic and Belphegor as well as a love of classic Black and Death Metal, our sound is based on a combination of both genres’ hallmarks; ethereal melodies woven into crushing guitars, driven by pounding drums and inhuman growls and screams."


"Greg(o)rian display heavy influences from bands such as Sunn o))), Earth, Sleep with some tendency for blendings Neurosis and Post-Metal style meanderings into their tracks which often clock in at over 30 minutes long."


"GraVil are a 5 piece metal band based in London, UK. Their line-up includes twin lead guitarists Ryszard Gabrielczyk and Irene Ketikidi, rhythm section of James Chapman (Drums) and Nathan "Sparx" Lamb (Bass), rounded off by vocalist Gra.

The bands sound has been descibed by Rocksound Magazine as "Mixing up all things Chimaira and Dark Tranquility" and Kerrang! magazine review as "Brutalising Tech Metal Wizardry". Tracks such as Helmsman, Something Worth Chasing and March of the Titans (co written alongside Cradle Of Filth axeman James McIlroy) have recieved numerous media coverage incluiding Ian Camfields XFM rockshow, Bruce Dickinsons BBC6 Rockshow and Scuzz TV. The EP "Age Of Corruption" also enjoyed a stint on HMV's front page as a featured rock/metal artist. "

(At the moment this video is set to Private so should not be viewable here. The band contacted me and asked me to take it down because of some future CD release. Maybe someday they will let me set it to Public viewing again)


"Hailing from London, Phyrexia is a six piece Epic Extreme Metal band who are making an impact on the unsigned metal scene. We formed circa 2008 and ever since have been gigging across the Capital, gathering a loyal fan base at the same time as realising our musical vision.

Taking inspiration from across the entire Met- al spectrum including everything from the theatricality of Power Metal to the crushing brutality of Death and Black Metal, Phyrexia have found a niche within an often superficial and one dimensional scene. Blood curdling screams, sweeping keyboard melodies, galloping riffs, catchy choruses and dual lead harmonies form the basis of our sound."


"Saturnian are a 7 piece from the United Kingdom, proud of a country rich in metal history and ready to usher in a new age charged with its pedigree. Saturnian was formed around one main principle – to create epic and majestic music to enchant fans of all metal genres; delivered in a grand and dramatic style that could soundtrack a blockbuster movie or theatrical performance. Expect razor sharp riffing, fist pounding rhythms, and a symphonic backbone worthy of the armies of Hell or the far reaches of the Universe. In true portentous British style, this is rounded out by a massive choral explosion, soaring sopranos, and ethereal Gregorian chant. This ethos comes to life in the Saturnian live experience, which in itself is a theatrical spectacle as opposed to a generic recital of music. Saturnian breeds an eclectic blend of voices, stunning instrumental performances, and a visual experience that will amaze, mystify and inspire!"
