BroFest #6

Venue, NUSU

After a few years off in order to recharge our UK chants, the festival with the most hated name in the underground returns!

Legendary NWOBHM band Quartz Rock Band (Official) will be joining the BROFEST(UK) hip swinging for the first ever time. These guys need absolutely no introduction, one of the originators of the whole movement, still absolutely rocking live and loud!!

Massively into announcing the return of UK Thrash legends Hydra Vein, formed by the brothers Maddison on their departure from Death Wish releasing 2 cult classic albums of 80s thrash metal done right! Unfortunately people maybe away of the passing of vocalist Mike Keen, to help the lads out on vocal duties will be none other than Richie Wicks Ex.Tygers of Pan Tang and Angel Witch. RATHER DEATH THAN FALSE OF FAITH!

Hero’s, Saints and Fools you say? Well what would a bunch of those types all be hanging around together if it isn’t for a Saracen gig?? That’s right the return of the one of the best NWOBHM bands, this time with a more progressive side. Anyone who has witnessed the lads recently will no how good they still are!

As you know we like to keep things obscure, so we are pleased to be bringing Manchester’s very own Sacred Alien. Releasing only a handful of tracks back in the earlier 80s, but now back and ready to take you to their SPRITIUAL PLANET! Be ready to be probed!

Continuing with the obscure, Medusa Touch from Edinburgh who where around from 1982-1990, are making the trip down to Newcastle, just don’t let them Medusa or Touch you, don’t wanna be turned into stone! Expect a raw and uncompromising set of Scottish NWOBHM!

The young lot aren’t forgotten either with Skyryder and Heavy Sentence giving the old guard a run for the spandex. SKYRYDER with their dual soloing and soaring vocals go head to head with the raw and drunken TANK inspired heavy sounds!

The Dates: 28-29 February 2020.
The Venue: Star and Shadow Cinema (this is 10mins walk from the previous venue).
