2018 paradise lost outshine

Swedish gothic rockers Outshine back from the deadFriday September 13th 2013. After a tour with Paradise Lost the Outshine tour bus where robbed and a full per-recorded album, band fees, important documents, passports and gear were lost. Swedish Tax Authorities, without a shred of proof, started to haunt founder and guitarist Jimmy Norberg stating ͞music is not a real occupation͟. The authority issued an 80.000 euro fine with 30 days for Jimmy and the band to pay it otherwise houses, cars, instruments and belongings would be confiscated and the company and the band put out of business... the worst years in Outshine history had started. But the bastard authorities and deceitful people was fought in court. After a long legal process Outshine won in court early 2017 against the Swedish Authority. Cleared from all accusations and the 80.000 euro fines recouped.... the resurrection and finalization of the new album ͞1313͟ could be started. With a new set of members including Tony Jelencovich (Transport League, ex-M.A.N, ex-B-Thong, Death Destruction, ex-Mnemic), Niklas Ingvarsson and Alexander Lundgren (ex-Devilicious), four agonizing years had finally come to an end.

2018 paradise lost king goat

Forming in 2012, Brighton’s King Goat quickly deviated from their initial aim to be a traditional sounding band. With a vast range of influences, both inside and outside of metal, King Goat’s sound started to take on a much more progressive bent. King Goat released two well-received EPs in 2013 and 2014 before the highly anticipated release of their debut album, Conduit, in March 2016, which has been praised across the board and was named both Album of the Month and Album of the Year by Angry Metal Guy. While continuing to progress in the studio, King Goat have been bringing their spellbinding stage show to venues across the UK, including a packed out New Blood tent at Bloodstock Open Air, Ritual Dreadfest, Doom Over London; shows with Enslaved, Grand Magus, Solstafir, Jex Thoth, A Forest of Stars, and many others. Closing out 2017 with performances at HRH Doom vs Stoner, King Goat’s very own Riffmass, and with more to announce, King Goat look to expand further across the UK and Europe.
