Welcome to The Hard-Lines Extreme Metal Civilization 2009-Now

OLD GRAVES FEST VI, October 13th-14th, 2017, Club Fabrica, Bucharest - ROMANIA: Confirms GEHENNAH, EMBRACE OF THORNS, And EXTIRPATION For The Line up 2017.

Romanian Thrash Metal Club is proud to presents The 6th edition of the OLD GRAVE FEST 2017 - the only metal festival in Romania organized by a fan club, for fans, the festival where your money helps for fund to the next edition.

After a few days ago had confirmed Necrophobic, Krossburst and Sarinvomit as the first line-up. Today, Old Grave Fest VI presents the bands that will perform at the event.  Among them, Swedish Black Thrash Metal ' Gehennah ' , Greece Black Death Metal 'Embrace of Thorns' and Italian Black Thrash Metal 'Extirpation'.  So let's look to to line up below.


GEHENNAH (Sweden - Black Thrash Metal)

Since the very beginning, this Swedish have established themselves as a living compendium of everything that’s disturbing about heavy metal, their career, thanks to albums like King of the Sidewalk and Decibel Rebel, resembling a whirlwind of spikes, bullet belts, chainsaws, curses, cowboy boots, and a sound straight from the golden days of Venom and Motorhead, bound together by a certain something that makes you add “blackened” before “thrash metal”. After a hiatus of nearly 10 years, Gehennah returns in 2016 with arguably their best effort to date: Too Loud to Live, Too Drunk to Die is exactly what it says on the package. In October 2017, the band will take over the passageway to club fabrica, so leave your watch at home, keep your money tucked away safely, and if you hear a voice from the dark asking you what’s up, you better have a six-pack of beer at the ready.


EMBRACE OF THORNS (Greece - Black Death Metal)

Starting in 1999, this Greeks have aimed to explore the boundary between death and black metal and use the darkest interpretations of the aforementioned genres to forge an unique identity. It would be wrong to label the debut ...for I See Death in Their Eyes... as simplistic only because it’s rooted in the most bestial forms of, well, bestial black/death metal. However, as time passes, the sound of Embrace of Thorns takes on new dimensions. The second full-length release, Atonement Ritual (2009), takes a large bite out of New York death metal, complete with the death/doom chunks, Praying for Absolution (2011) is built on the same frameworks but delves deeper into black metal, while the latest album, Darkness Impenetrable (2014), is the most complex to date. On this evolutionary trend one can expect nothing but the best from Embrace of Thorns, and the first opportunity to witness this live in Romania will be at Old Grave Fest 2017.


EXTIRPATION (Italy - Black Thrash Metal)

Back on the Old Grave Fest bill after 3 years and another rabid record – Wings of Decadence (2015) – the next band for their 6th edition is the Italian thrash/death/black commando Extirpation. They’re the relative of Krossburst, kept tied up in a cellar and fed raw meat once a week; the two bands have a relationship that’s somewhere between incest and gangbang, or so the two band members they share suggest, as well as the similar approach to the two relatively different subgenres.
