Smell that? It’s the stench of this show reaching your nostrils.
Proudly putting together two of today’s best death metal bands in existence, UK’s Grave Miasma (back in Berlin after a very long break) and USA’s Spectral Voice (who played to a sold out crowd in this very venue last year) – this will be the last highlight of the year for Wolf City, to send 2019 properly spinning into its crypt.
As opener we welcome the Abrisskommando Mouth Of Madness, who will export their personal brand of pestilence from Görlitz.

It would be an understatement to say that these two bands have proven to be two of the most successful, accomplished and creative bands in the German death metal underground of the last few years. With both bands having dropped their respectively magnificent third release in 2018 under the egide of the ever attentive Ván Records, this is a package that should get everyone foaming at the mouth.
Whereas Sulphur Aeon faithfully carry on the work of Charles Dexter Ward to resurrect ancient horrors in the most powerful atmospheric death metal rendition of Lovecraft’s immortal work, Chapel Of Disease started their journey in the darkness of dilapidated crypts to land in territories flooded by the soothing, psychedelic and bluesy sun of classic rock – all without losing an ounce of impact or give in to the temptations of “mature” mass-marketed heavy metal. Two bands, both one of a kind and a testimony to the creative force of the current death metal scene.
They will be joined also by the Cascadian FUNERAL DOOM band Vouna
The third studio album « Urban Dangerous » by the garage-rock trio Wolf Mountains opens further doors into the world of timeless pop. The characteristic features like the rolling bass or the 90’s high school rock vocals are still present, but a playground of sound experiments and skits is opened up. The songwriting seems more mature, the riffs more cheeky, the fun factor more balanced, so that the individual songs are amplified by the « hit » factor.
« Urban Dangerous » radiates an energy that increases the mood barometer considerably and can also be enjoyed in all kinds of situations. The R-O-C-K factor plays a big role whether packed in a western look, driving psychedelic blues or with classic indie punk attitude, the Wolf Mountains give the genre the esprit it desperately needs in 2019.
« Urban Dangerous » released on September 27th on Treibender Teppich Records

Japan’s Coffins have been celebrating that particular disease of the underground that goes by the name of death/doom for over 20 years now, releasing a ton of splits, EPs and four full lenghts and the wheel hasn’t stopped turning in its murderous course, crushing countless bodies on its trail. After their last Berlin apparition was sadly called off by higher powers, we are very happy to be able to host them at our humble palace of horrors.
To make them feel right at home, we summoned one of Berlin’s most revered death metal ancient wizards, the almighty Drowned. Going since the 90’s, this band should need no introduction. Frugal with releases but more than adequately making up for it in sheer quality, Drowned are masters in the ways of yore when it comes to pure, proper grave desecration.
The poison chalice has been served, come drink and be merry, for tomorrow we might die!
The rotten wood gives way, once exposed again to the fresh air of the cemetary, many years after being interred. A purulent ejection of filthy liquids pours out from the open casket. The river of sickness trickles down all the way to the garden of Urban Spree, where it coalesces to form a bunch of creatures, human only in shape. They take the stage. They seal the doors. Trapped in the venue, everybody is consumed by the hellish noise. Only Death is real!
Pissgrave and Necrot crossed the Atlantic to fill these lands with the stench of death, Undergang were summoned from Denmark to accompany them in this horrible journey. Pestilent death metal is the key to the gate. Rise, and join!
