DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT
Citing no specific influence other than the depression, isolation, abuse, and calculated violence abundant in contemporary society, the elusive Dragged Into Sunlight are a UK extreme metal act, with a collective of members, of whom some have maintained their involvement with profiled acts throughout the preceding decade. The band have carved a unique sound and an underground following akin to a vast spread of bands active in the late 90s extreme, doom, death, black metal, and harsh noise genres…
The band’s sound is best described as ‘a blistering void of total negativity’ having drawn comparison to fellow lifers Incantation, Rudimentary Peni, Wolves In the Throneroom, Eyehategod and Beherit.
Having gained notoriety for their exclusive, vicious and ritualistic live performance, Dragged Into Sunlight went on to tour in Europe with Eyehategod, Weedeater, Black Cobra, Rwake, Today is the Day and Soilent Green.
Known for their approach to live shows, similarly to bands such as Jucifer, sometime performing sets consisting entirely of soundscapes and projection work, their shows are sure not to be missed…
Thrillingly misanthropic in their approach, Denver Colorado’s Primitive Man drench their post-apocalyptic vision of the world in waves of feedback, pummeling guitars and hopelessly frightening vocals. This is grade-a hateful, soul-annihilating music of the darkest order.
Salt Lake City hardcore act Cult Leader, born from the ashes of the venerable Gaza, oscillates between two extremes: near-grindcore intensity and oppressive, lurching sludge metal, with every shade of grey between the two explored. Both lyrically and musically, Cult Leader convey an unmistakable message of depression, rage, and nihilism.
