/Gig /London /Retribution Alive: Sidious / Tableau Mort + guests
February 24 @ 19:30 - 00:00 GMT£7.50
Black metallers SIDIOUS headline the legendary birthplace of Iron Maiden… the Cart & Horses as part of February’s Retribution Alive, ahead of their upcoming EU tour in March with Azaghal! They are joined by the almighty TABLEAU MORT + guests!
Sidious was formed in 2012, with a mission – to create uncompromising, aggressive & cold black
metal. With debut EP ‘Ascension To The Throne Ov Self’ (produced by Russ Russell), Sidious took the unsuspecting underground by storm, gathering rave reviews from all over the world, described as ‘Brutal intensity, Savage technicality, Pure, refined evil’ (No Clean Singing) and established themselves within the UK metal underground. Later they supported acts such as Anaal Nathrakh, Hecate Enthroned, The Infernal Sea and more, with later releases being described as being “on a demonic march with sounds to breed fear in even the devil” (Wonderbox Metal) and once again teamed up with Russ Russell to realise their latest offering, ‘Blackest Insurrection’, released 11th March 2022 in collaboration with Clobber records, an album that “deserves the full attention of every black metal fan” (Metal Bite). “An extraordinary work full of anger executed violently, with a cold and devastating sound” (The Dark Melody) and “Black Metal in its purest form” (Metal Friends), Sidious have poured all their efforts into creating the record that truly realises the original mission, and established themselves firmly in the black metal scene as one of the UK’s finest offerings of uncompromising live acts.
“Blasphemous, occult-heavy and reeking of charred grandeur, Tableau Mort‘s progressively-minded take on black metal’s well-established tropes was as riveting as it was unnerving. With a HUGE sound that touched on the epic nature of Dimmu Borgir (but without fully crossing over into the bombastic nature of symphonic black metal), Visio in Somnils was as nasty as fuck despite experimenting wildly with such a rigid rule-book – the left field use of saxophone in “Hope Ablaze” immediately springs to mind.” – worshipmetal.com
