UP IN SMOKE 2018 - ELECTRIC WIZARD & 6 MORE ACTS CONFIRMED and a chance to win your WEEKEND PASS!
ELECTRIC WIZARD & 6 MORE BANDS CONFIRMED FOR UP IN SMOKE INDOOR FEST 2018
We kept you waiting long enough! Today, we're thrilled to unveil 7 more bands you'll have the opportunity to witness and worship live at Up In Smoke Indoor Fest 2018, including our second headliner: the almighty ELECTRIC WIZARD, bringing their new album "Wizard Bloody Wizard" to make Pratteln tremble once again! Also confirmed:
DOPETHRONE (CAN) - The riff comes in many forms. Sometimes it's clean and elegant... sometimes it's filthy, grimy and about as elegant as a sledgehammer to the sternum. "Dopethrone are the kind of humans that eat the blues for lunch and wash it all down with a giant jug of crust punch! This is one of those bands that will have the crusty punks head banging right next to the stoners, both united under the bad sign of doom." (CVLT NATION) The Canadian will release their new album “Transcanadian Anger” by the end of the week!
ANCESTORS (USA) - Ancestors formed in 2006 and instead of "choosing between prog rock or heavy rock," merged the styles to create music rife with atmosphere, tension and raw human emotion. They create mighty, modern music that dovetails innovative arrangement, crushing primordial riff interplay and melodic instrumental passages with textural atmospherics. They will release their long-awaited new album this summer via Pelagic Records.
MESSA (IT) - Messa play evoking doom metal with a dark jazz twist. Deliciously haunting female vocals, rhodes piano and 70’s fuzz guitars combine to conjure a sound that is all of their own. With influences as diverse as Windhand, Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, The Devil’s Blood, Jex Thoth, Angelo Badalamenti, Bellwitch, John Coltrane and Aluk Todolo, the band has moved from the droning occult doom of their first LP “Belfry” to a new, darker and more atmospheric approach clearly showcased in their new record “Feast for Water”, released in April!
CHILD (AUS) - Hailing from the urban wilds of Melbourne, Australia, Child combine the heavy emotion of the blues with the tone and raw power of hard rock to create a visceral musical experience that reaches right into the chest of listeners. Since the release of their runaway self-titled debut in 2014, Child have continued to develop their unique brand of heavy blues through constant writing and extensive touring. The band released their latest EP "I" a few months ago!
HUMULUS (IT) - Humulus is a Psych-Stoner power trio from Brescia/Bergamo (Italy), formed in 2009. Their first self titled album was released by Go Down Records in December 2012. The ten tracks of this first work fully reflect the stoner attitude of the band and their aggressive sound that is best expressed during their live shows. Their latest LP “Reverently Heading Into Nowhere”, more psychedelic and heavier than ever, came out in the Spring of 2017.
GIANT SLEEP (GER/CH) - Giant Sleep are five guys from Germany and Switzerland, worshipping the power of the riff. The sound of the quintet penetrates the worlds of the subconscious and incomprehensible with no regard for genres nor boundaries. Modern post- and prog-rock elements meet the classic sound of the 70s; an original mixture of lively and creative music. On their second album “Move A Mountain” Giant Sleep takes you on a journey through rock history and beyond.
