Retribution Alive and New Cross Inn present: Afsky / Grift / Ante-Inferno
at New Cross Inn
Retribution Alive and the New Cross Inn are proud to bring you the London leg of the AFSKY / GRIFT European tour. They are joined by ANTE-INFERNO!
Having played throughout Europe with the likes of Moonsorrow, Spectral Wound, Endstille, Auda and Winterfylleth, Afsky now land in London off the back of the brilliant 'Ofte jeg drømmer mig død' album.
"...delivering six sinuous and scintillating tracks of classic Black Metal sound and fury, heavy in both atmosphere and melody, which hearken back all the way to the early days of the genre." - nocleansinging.com
With strong ties to predominantly Swedish poets and artists, Grift want to convey the sense of melancholy and existential questions that artists and thinkers throughout history always have felt a strong need to express. Grift's ambition is also to evoke the mood some people are in great need of; the mood you can't express through other mediums than music, images, and in some cases even through words. This kind of escapism is about breaking the chains of everyday given norms, and for a short moment becoming a stranger lost in a state of uncertain homelessness.
From the frost-bitten climes of North Yorkshire we came, wielding hate and vice in equal degree. We are the essence of true, English black metal.
