Fan-chosen favourites Monolord and Fireball Ministry will headline HRH Doom Vs HRH Stoner (Europe’s flagship celebration of Doom and Stoner Rock), which will hit the O2 Academy in Sheffield on 28th & 29th September 2019. One further headliner will be announced on 5th November!
HRH DVS IV is an HRH city experience: a thunderous battle of very, VERY loud metal tribes, who’ll champion their passionate camps at the UK’s number one celebration of these loud, dark, powerful genres.
Hailing from Gothenberg, in metal-heavy Sweden, Monolord were formed in 2013 and stand at the storm fronts of Doom and Stoner music, known for their brooding ominous sound, deep, slow riffs and broiling fuzz, surrounding Thomas Jäger’s vocals. As Angry Metal Guy so aptly put it in review: “Monolord, as a name, suits these guys perfectly, as they are beholden to only one lord, and that is the Lord of the Riff. Since they hit the scene they’ve been bringing massive, fuzzy variations of Black Sabbath/Electric Wizard worship to the table.” That’s an offering sure to please the HRH pilgrims at HRH Doom Vs HRH Stoner IV”!
Fireball Ministry, from Los Angeles, call themselves “The First Church of Rock & Roll”, Since they formed in 1999, the band have specialised in delivering a sound with modern execution, notably analogue-steeped, bottom-heavy tunes, However, the band passionately steer clear of descending into what they call the depths of “mere retread or throwaway novelty swill.”
The two headliners blaze the trail for a portentous line-up of Doom & Stoner talent over the two-day event. Also confirmed for HRH Doom Vs HRH Stoner IV are: Black Rainbows, Church of the Cosmic Skull, Black Moth, Dead Witches, Space Witch, Ten Ton Slug, Master Charger, Oak, Witch Tripper, Poseidon, The Red Widows, Mage, Red Spektor, Deadsmoke, Green Lung, Black Forge, Cower, Hounds!, Psychlona, Flex Bison, and Superseed.
What’s more HRH are making a special offer: a double header deal, that’s only available for 36 hours, 20 quid for a weekend pass, no booking fee and a free event… BUT it all finishes with the toll of the big black bell at midnight tomorrow night – Sunday 30th Sept.
Building on expertise honed at Camp HRH in North Wales, HRH DVS IV brings the same high standards to Sheffield at the O2 Academy. State-of-the-art sound and stagecraft; quality accommodation on the doorstep, and the fabled HRH community.
