Bro (UK) Promotions and Mythology Agency are very excited to welcome the return of a deadly evil upon the Tyne – Norway’s black/thrash masters AURA NOIR!
Following on from a devastating performance earlier in the year, Aura Noir have chosen to come back and continue the assault – playing in Newcastle as their only UK show outside of Damnation Festival ( NOT EVEN A LONDON SHOW!!! :O )
This time the Ugliest Band in the World promises to bring a special setlist, featuring one or two surprises, mixing songs
old and new and maybe even some of Carl Michael’s infamous stand up! More details coming soon! Support bands already sorted and will be announced here shortly!
The show is on at the World Headquarters, so expect the show to be louder, faster and even more chaotic than before!
Doors time tbc, probably aiming for a slightly earlier finish as its a Sunday to allow people to travel home.

Bro (UK) in association with LIVE EVIL present: ‘INTO THE DARK’ TOUR 2012
Live Evil has teamed up with Bro (UK) and Metropolis Music to arrange for one of the most powerful UK heavy metal tours of recent times.
With a lineage dating back to 1977, South London’s Angel Witch were leading lights of the now legendary New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement. The band have decimated stages around the world in recent years with arguably their best ever line-up. Angel Witch will mix all their classic numbers with choice cuts from lauded latest album released on Rise Above Records ‘As Above, So Below’.
The high-energy Swedish heavy metallers are leaders of the young heavy metal scene and incendiary live performers. The band formed in 2005 and they are set to release their third album for Earache Records in 2013.
AGE OF TAURUS
The three-piece are one of the most lauded metal acts to appear on the scene in the last few years. This is well written heavy metal with the doomed feel of early innovators like Candlemass and are monstrous live.

Cannabis corpse was founded by Landphil and Hallhammer in the summer of 2006. The band was a heart felt tribute to smoking pot and the most brutal band in the universe CANNIBAL CORPSE! The original demo “Blunted at Birth” was recorded in the kitchen of a shit hole apt. in “Oregon Hill” a small neighborhood in Richmond VA.
Landphil and Hallhammer wrote and recorded the songs with no vocalist in mind, but since Andy “Weedgrinder” Horn lived in the same Apt. and was known to do extreme metal vocals from time to time he was recruited. After “Blunted at Birth” was complete it was put out as the first release on the fledgling record company “Forcefield Records” The album received a great reaction so Nick was recruited to play as the live guitarist.
Many many shows followed with this line up including two Euro tours, and several treks across the U.S. Landphil and Hallhammer continued to write and record albums including “Tube of the resinated” in 2008 “The Weeding E.P” in 2009 and “Beneath grow lights thou shalt rise” in 2011.
In 2012 Andy and Nick parted ways with the band and Brent “Legion” Pergason was recruited as the new live guitarist and Landphil took over vocal duties. The band continues forward with no end in sight! Stay tuned for more brutality!
Not much is known about Ghoul as they are always seen wearing masks. The members go by the stage names Cremator, Fermentor, Digestor, and Dissector. The band has a large line-up of characters in their lyrics, including the four of themselves. Most of the information about them comes from the “Curio Shop Owner” one of the many characters mentioned in their songs. They claim to be mutants that came from Creepsylvania. Ghoul was signed after self-releasing a demo. Their musical style is best described as a blend of thrash and death metal with death metal vocals and lyrics.
Formed in 2010, Desolator are a 3 piece thrash metal band from Southampton. Playing stripped down, no nonsense thrash metal, our only aim is to DESOLATE!
So its been a massive long time since our last up here at UK central, loads of stuff is/has been happening behind the scenes – we aint dead quite yet.
