The last announcements for Complexity Fest 2018:
With roots in a sometimes tumultuous Lebanon and now (partly) based in the Netherlands, Kaoteon wil...l release a smasher of a new album called 'Damnatio Memoriae' on exactly February 23, full of furious atmospheric blackened and oriental death metal with members from Obscura and Marduk contributing on the album!
A first taste live at Complexity Fest of a brand new band consisting of members from Dutch underground bands Divine Sins and Mary Fields among others, providing a fierce blend of striking riffing packed in a brutal sound without any compromise. First EP planned for early 2018!
Experimental Dutch youngsters IDEK like those jazzy grooves, quirky blues references or a general touch of cynical humor to shine through their bouncy metal. Their new single 'Approaching Storms' just released paves the way for the near future!
