METALHEADS UNITED and the 420 Music & Arts Festival are please to announce Interitum (Australia) with Greybeard, Row of Giants and Locutus on Thursday, June 27 at The Palomino Smokehouse and Social Club. Tickets are on sale on Showpass and are also available at Sloth Records.
Interitum was spawned into Tasmania’s northern city of Launceston. The brainchild of husband and wife team Trent and Kel Barrett together with members Jarrod Gaye and Paul Wallace have created something that twists all their influences into a vision of Sludge/Doom Core that is uniquely theirs.
Created in late 2015 and after a shuffle of members through 2016, by the December that year Interitum was in full swing. 2017 saw the recording and release of debut EP Conformed Suffering. Then a five-piece they worked with producer Joe Haley (Psycroptic) and recorded at AAA Recording Studio and Crawlspace Studios. The debut single Beneath the Filth’s video was filmed edited and directed my vocalist Kel, creating a world within the story of the lyrics. Throughout that year they worked at growing their name and craft which seen them playing shows on a regular basis. They have also seen extensive radio play worldwide. Early 2018 saw the departure of guitarist Freeman, due to personal commitments. Interitum has powered on as a four-piece and has been busy writing material for the upcoming full-length album due for release 2019.
This is Interitum's first trip to Canada where they will play 5 dates including at Metalocalypstick Festival. They were originally scheduled to play Maryland Doomfest, but they are unable to due to visa issues.
Greybeard is a local heavy metal band and one of Calgary’s best kept secrets. Combining elements of death, black, and prog, with a solid dose of classic metal and rock influences, The band has created a sound that's all their own. Blistering growls combined with cleans vocals and harmonies, layered over driving riffs and rhythms create epic songs that will stick in your head for days! And intentional or not, their music has a distinct doom vibe with vocals reminiscent of Jeff Walker of Carcass.
What started out as a 2-man project in 2016 blossomed into a full-fledged band in 2018 as Greybeard played their first live show. They have three EPs under their belt all of which are available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, etc. and they are in the process of recording their first full-length release, “Oracle”, which is slated for release later this year.
Locutus is a very interesting instrumental band from Calgary. Heavy on the bass and deep guitar fuzz that has almost a drone like quality, their music will grab you and keep you entranced.
Row of Giants played their first live event at this year's 420 Music and Arts Festival and absolutely crushed it! They've also recently did they same at Vantopia. We can't wait to see them again. Come on down for some trippy, spacey jams.
