THE GREAT OLD ONES
Post black metal is a world often defined by pretty melodies and epic song structures that transcend emotion and encourage the listener to get lost in the sound. This isn’t the case for THE GREAT OLD ONES, their music is incredibly punishing, twisted and devilish, an evolution on black metal that not even Dead himself could have anticipated. It’s atmospheric to be sure but also touching on emotions most of us didn’t even know we had. There are few bands who break the mold as powerfully and with the same degree of bloodthirsty glory as THE GREAT OLD ONES do, but once you start to get lost in their filthy conjurations and sonic blasphemies it becomes clear that this is going to be a can’t miss event at Hellfest 2018.
