There are well over 250 bands performing over the August Bank Holiday weekend in both Reading and Leeds with dozens of comedians and DJs on top. That’s a lot of stuff to see and if you’re going to either site, you’ve only got a limited amount of time to see a maximum of ten or so bands per day. To help you out, here are a few Thrash Hits tips. Thrash Tips? Sorry.
Beware Of Darkness
Beware of Darkness is a bold, new power-trio of old souls, pissed at life in a modern age. They are ready to frighten your children, sleep with your daughters, and make you shake, scream, and contort like it's a Depression-Era, Southern exorcism. They play fast moving rock songs with exploding key and rhythm changes mid-song. They also play slow-cooked, sexed-up bluesy things. Imagine Bowie's "Hunky Dory" with low, detuned, primal Zeppelin-esque guitar riffs. Beware of Darkness is a garage rock band formed in Santa Barbara, CA, USA in 2011 consisting of vocalist/guitarist Kyle Nicolaides, bassist Daniel Curcio, and drummer Tony Read more on Last.fm.
