Mammothfest's biggest event to date continues with Fleshgod Apocalypse & 15 more acts added to the bill!
Mammothfest has already made two festival announcements this year for their main event taking place at The Arch in Brighton on 6-8th October, which included first headliners, Rotting Christ (UK exclusive), Tjusder, Meta-stasis, Lagerstein, OHHMS, Patrick Walker (40 Watt Sun) and more.
In this new latest announcement, Mammothfest reveals its second headliner will be Italian avant-garde symphonic extreme act, Fleshgod Apocalypse heading up the Death/Extreme metal main stage on Saturday the 7th October for their only other UK performance in the UK in 2017, along with a further 15 acts spread across various stages over the weekend!
Headliners Fleshgod Apocalypse
Fleshgod Apocalypse will only be doing two UK shows this year, so asides from their performance in Scotland in April, Mammothfest will be the only event where you can catch the band in the UK in 2017.
The six-piece leads the forefront of death metal in Italy and for a good reason. The Italians are inspired by renowned composers such as Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse as well as classical influences from Mozart, Beethoven and more. They have released four albums to date, their latest offering being ‘King’ (2016) through Nuclear Blast Records.
To date, Fleshgod Apocalypse has toured worldwide with established acts such as Behemoth, Dying Fetus, Napalm Death, The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel and more. You won’t want to miss their triumphant and unforgettable set at Mammothfest!
That is not all – further additions to this mighty weekend include...
Saturday 7th October 2017 Death/Extreme metal MAIN stage
DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT join Fleshgod Apocalypse as main support on the main stage.
British extreme metallers from Liverpool, UK, Dragged Into Sunlight have been brought in as the main support to headliners, Fleshgod Apocalypse. They have been delivering their intense and brash sound for over a decade now, since 2006. There is a lot of mystery and intrigue surrounding the band, as they reveal little information about their identities, even going as far as to hide their faces, wearing balaclavas. Their live performances are a stranger affair, as they play with their back to the audience. They will have to be seen to be believed.
As support to the mighty legends MAYHEM in a vast European tour soon, Dragged into Sunlight will spread their unlight to Mammothfest in what is undoubtedly the darkest Mammothfest weekend to date.
Also appearing on the main stage:
Also on the death/extreme main stage is thrash metal legends, Lawnmower Deth. They like to have fun whilst playing their thrash punk crossover sound. They formed back in 1987 and were active until the 1990’s and then reformed in 2008 in style by reuniting as support to massive Welsh metalcore band, Bullet For My Valentine. Since then Lawnmower Deth have landed many big supports and festival appearances, including Download Festival on a couple of occasions, Bloodstock, Hammerfest and more, and now it’s time for them to stun the crowds at Mammothfest also!
