These dudes have been going for about four years now and have all previously been in some awesome bands. Tangaroa, Year Of The Man, Imposters, Executive Distraction Tasks, Hot Prophecy and Daigoro. They have all individually mastered the art of heavy. There is nothing in Canaya's music that doesn't need to need to be there, this is pure refined balls out heavy metal.
OLD MAN LIZARD
Riff heavy 3 piece from Suffolk. Their self titled release needs to be in your collection, recorded in an old factory with some sweet fuzzed out drive, meandering guitar licks and some nice dynamic while the whole thing sounds kind of sleazy.
Earthmass began in 2012 and provide massive doses of heavy prog. In April of last year they released Lunar Dawn (Keep, Relics & Ritual) a tremendous first release displaying waves of spacey drone edged with a folk(y) haunting vocal intermittently crushed by a release of war bound riff.
Opening the show will be Leeds 5 piece post-metal/sludge machine BARICADES. Their demo 'homeward' is aggressive as fuck to begin with only to swerve though some nice melodic delayed guitar. Despite these moments of release, after listening to the whole thing I kind of feel like some ruckus. The demo is available on their bandcamp, name your price.
1st band about 8:30...ish
