M2TM heat 4 : Callus / Sin Circus / Liverwrist / Skies Turn Black
Sanctuary Rock Bar, Cow Lane – Doors 9.30pm
Which 2 bands will make it through to the semi final…?
CALLUS : Down-tuned metal fused with Thrash, Sludge and Doom elements. Forming a truly obnoxious, quite furious and outright terrifying sound
Sin Circus : formed in 2015, hard hitting, theatrical, and powerful.
Skies Turn Black: formed in 2011, since then they have supported international touring acts such as Malefice, EYE, Double Experience, and New Device. Consists of many aspects of Hard Rock and Metal, with their own original flavours added in, drawing on strings of classic rock and metal, fusing in more modern, catchier moments that really make the bands songs shine.
Liverwrist: A lot of (mostly 90’s) Rock and Metal but everyone in the band listens to and absorbs many different styles of music (including Classical, Electronic, Hip-Hop, Soul, Folk… and unashamedly some cheesy pop)
