CENTURION are a heavy-metal band from Nottingham, inspired by the likes of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and the riff-driven power of the NWOBHM sound of the late seventies and early eighties. Started in early 2015, Centurion aim to bring heavy metal back to its heyday! Their powerful sound delivers hooksy riffs paired with a take-no-prisoners brutal attitude. Stand too close to either of their lead guitarists and your face might well melt!
You’ll probably recognise a familiar face in the line up – yes, that’s our very own Esme! After several years of supporting PPUK Aftershow bands with her solo acoustic rock, she has finally given in to public demand and agreed to headline with her band: CENTURION. Don’t miss your chance to see the head of Pagan Pride UK like you’ve never seen her before! \m/
Centurion have already made waves in the local music scene, recently placing third in Macmillan Fest's Battle Of The Bands, and rocking out at events like Dark Rose Fest, Notts in a Nutshell, & Intervention with plenty more gigs and festival dates lined up on their calendar. Attend the Afterparty to get a dose of heavy metal like you've never heard it before!
Bursting out of Nottingham, Patriot Rebel are here to stamp their mark over the whole of the UK. The Brit riff-lords are poised to rise with the national release of their stunning debut EP ‘Two Worlds’,
Taking from the likes of Stone Temple Pilots, Alter Bridge and Shinedown, but with a particular affinity for Black Stone Cherry and Velvet Revolver, Patriot Rebel pitch colossal riffs against soaring melodies, and the end result is immensely enthralling.
Although the roots of the band can be traced to 2007, it was not until 2011 that the current line up began to solidify. The quintet started to play throughout their local area and soon earned a hearty reputation for delivering an explosion live performance. Touring and festivals soon followed as the band shared stages with the likes of Tesseract, Jettblack, Skarlett Riot, Spirytus and Violet. And it wasn’t too long before the ascending rockers sold out at the legendary ‘Rock City’ in Nottingham.
With the band’s live reputation flourishing, the five-some decided to turn their attention to releasing their debut record. Patriot Rebel headed to Axis Studios to work with esteemed producer Matt Elliss (Black Spiders, Terrorvision, Skarlett Riot) and they proceeded to put down tracks for their debut EP ‘Two Worlds’. Now fully complete, the record delivers on all fronts. Bursting with pounding drums, throbbing guitar lines and engaging hooks, the band have a beast of a debut for your absorption. The EP packs six killer cuts spanning from the thunderous riffage of ‘Propaganda’ to the fist-in-the-air anthem of ‘What Goes Around’ and to the rousing ‘The Storm’, which highlights the band’s growing diversity and songwriting prowess. Everything is now falling into place as the rocksters will battle it out for their place as one of the new breed of Brit Rock bands set to break in the UK!
Formed in 2013, Aramantus are a Progressive Groove Metal band from the heart of the UK.Rather than fall into the trap of writing the same song over and over, Aramantus pride themselves on their musical diversity and ability to create songs where they can take the listener on a different journey with each one, whilst still remaining true to their roots. They strive to breathe new life into a somewhat lethargic music industry.
After winning the So Called Studios 2014 BOTB by a clear margin (against some stiff competition) and being asked to play the Forerunner Records Stage at the Barclaycard Arena before the Slipknot and Korn gig in January 2015, Aramantus are raring to go.
Aramantus are Metal to The Masses Semi-Finalists (Birmingham 2015) and Finalists (Birmingham 2016).
