MAMMOTHFEST Announces Additional Headliners & Supports For 2018




It has long been the MAMMOTHFEST stance that customers do not need to spend a lot of money to attend a great festival, see incredible bands and complete the weekend feeling utterly fulfilled.

2018 is no exception with this stunning line up as Mammothfest continues to bring the biggest bands in the world to Brighton while maintaining the vital platforms necessary to give our worldwide emerging talent the opportunities they need to keep the life blood of our metal scene thriving!

The MAMMOTHFEST team are honoured to present 18 of our 50 bands confirmed for MAMMOTHFEST 2018 (see above).




Bleed from within: Perseverance. A powerful word with an equally powerful meaning. Says the dictionary: “steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.”
Their new album, Era, is that story, a no-compromise tale of the price of victory.
Drummer Ali Richardson says. “We are here now for a love of music; a desire to create and share the songs that we would want to listen to. There is literally nothing that can take that away from us.”

Their new album is out on 06-04-2018

Director Steve Dickson comments: "It is an honour to welcome BLEED FROM WITHIN to our 6th MAMMOTHFEST; they are already legends with a career spanning 2 decades, 4 albums and videos reaching their millions such as Bleed From Within Servants Of Divinity Music Video 2009. Brighton is simply not ready for this weekend!"



During the night of April 26th in 1986 a world-changing accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Inspired by this catastrophe and its consequences a highly radiated german band called CYTOTOXIN have been pulverizing the Death Metal world since 2010 with devastating results.

Director Steve comments: "Anyone that has seen this band will know they are death metal masters with a technical brilliance up there with the best. Add to that pure evil, toxic nauseating tones with guttural pig squeals and you get a devastating band that will infect Brighton for life".


Unfathomable Ruination plays an intense and brutal style of Death Metal. The band, based in and around London, draws on influences such as: Suffocation, Origin, Death, Internal Suffering and Disgorge (US). Extreme death metal at it's very finest with insane drumming.





Rectal Smegma was initially formed in 2003 by four guys from the west of The Netherlands, who set out to create brutal gore grind with lots of groove, blastbeats and a humoristic party vibe all over.
There are now five full-length records released plus three split albums. A new 3-way split will be recorded at the famous Kohlekeller studio and released in early 2018 through Rotten Roll Rex.



MartYriuM is an Extreme metal band from Malta, formed by Count Mortem in 1999 with the spawn of the second wave of black metal. This band is a unique blend of Black and Death Metal with a specific sound design introducing Sinister Orchestrations and Industrial Elements to the style. MartYriuM’s performances are both aggressive and theatrical, full of dark acts and occult imagery that will unleash infernal chaos from within your wretched soul. 

Director Steve commented: "I had the pleasure of watching this band at a festival in MALTA, shocking, stunning and overall amazing performance, a MUST see!"


DIVINE CHAOS continue to spread their, well Divine chaos across the world and are somewhat regulars to MAMMOTHFEST because their music is incredible and there is always some form of antics they get up to that always brightens Mammothfest events. 2018 will be no exception but be careful what you drink when around them, it may not be beer as the Mammothfest director learned first hand once!




KRYSTHLA are one of the most impressive unsigned bands in the world. Don't let the "unsigned" bit put you off either, they used to go under the band name GUTWORM, they were signed and things didn't go so well so they self release everything and work that extra hard to get out there which we absolutely respect and admire. They have recently toured with Obituary and Vader across Europe and with their stunningly tight live shows they are a very welcomed further addition to the Mamothfest line up.



WEEKEND Tickets remain very low at £50 for this high calibre event across 4 venues and 3 days in Brighton. There will be over 50 bands perform across the weekend and tickets will increase again so the sooner you buy the more you save.

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
