heavy metal for wigan
Halloween is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than a full day of metal at one of the finest venues in the North West of England. Featuring fresh talent from the region and new bands to the brand, get your spook on and party in style!
RipTide – Tormenta – Cut Short – Forever In The Making – Saurr – 4GEN7 – Octopus Montage – Darkstone – Omega Throne
This evening’s headliners and a band with a truly bright future, thrash metal fans will love this 4 piece from Huddersfield. They’ve forged a fierce reputation for their energy and live performances. The band have already amassed an impressive resume of festival appearance and have shared the stage with other thrash metal legends such as Evile, Annihilator, and Savage Massiah. Catch them now before they’re huge!
Another up and coming metalcore band from the North West of England, the band are becoming a house hold name. With new material and fresh ideas, the band aim to recapture the momentum they had been building prior to the global shutdown. This will be the first time the band have played on an AHMFW line up.
Cut Short
The band’s hardcore and modern metal crossover sound is perfectly encapsulated in singles Null, and State Approved. They’ve somewhat gone under the radar in the local metal scene, so it’s with great pleasure to bring to you Cut Short!
Forever In The Making
Signed to Unearthed Management, Forever In The Making pride themselves as being a metalcore band with a difference. The band have been making waves and are preparing for an intensive touring schedule this autumn. It’s a pleasure to bring the Midlands based act to Wigan for the first time!
One of Wigan’s strongest bands and previous Metal To The Masses winners, Saurr will bring their unique metal style to The Boulevard this Halloween. Their first post-pandemic gig!
A mainstay in the local scene, the band have undergone a resurgence in recent times with a fresh line up. They cite RATM, Soundgarden, and other grunge bands amongst their influences.
Octopus Montage
The Blackpool natives had been on a tear over lockdown, culminating with the release of their debut album How To Live And How To Lose. A pop punk foundation infused with metalcore will appease fans of ADTR.
It is with great pleasure to bring back hard rockers Darkstone, a band who were instrumental in the early days of the AHMFW brand. Hard rock band with melodic elements.
Omega Throne
New to The Boulevard and Wigan, blackened-death metallers Omega Throne will bring crushing guitar riffs, blast beats, and generally unforgiving heaviness! Check out single Casus Beli for evidence.
Doors at 3pm, first band 4pm. Late finish. Free entry. 14+ with responsible adult.
