Mammothfest has proven itself each year with its ethos that to be a great festival there needs to be great bands throughout the whole event, from headliners to opening acts too. The 2016 line-up is packed full of gems of the underground UK Metal scene to check out, not yet as widely known as the headliners, but equally worthy of your time to see. Kudos to Mammothfest for championing these guys. Many are local Brighton talent who are now making serious waves in the UK and beyond. Here are a few such bands that I highly recommend checking if you haven't already, and a couple of my favourite bigger bands to see that are always worth a ticket.

Day tickets, weekend tickets and all Mammothfest info can be found at www.mammothfest.uk. Full line-up poster below.


1: TEXTURES
Textures

Textures headline the Progressive Metal stage at The Haunt on day 1 (Sept 30th). Expect heavyweight riffing, stunning musicality and an intense, atmospheric live show.


2. HEART OF A COWARD
Jamie Graham, Heart Of A Coward

Heart Of A Coward bring a bludgeoning Hardcore edge to their groove-heavy tech-Metal sound, and a show that's big on energy to match.

3. THE FIVE HUNDRED
The Five Hundred

Highly impressive at last year's Mammothfest and on tour this year with Brutai. With a fantastic debut EP 'Winters', The Five Hundred have the makings of something rather special.

4. KING LEVIATHAN
King Leviathan

This power Metal four piece slam elements of Black and Death against a solid wall of old-school Thrash to stunning effect. Great vocals, well crafted solos, incredibly tight musicianship... mark your face with the black cross and don't miss their next black mass... WORSHIP THE OLD GODS!

5. HELL PUPPETS
Hell Puppets

WARNING! A Hell Puppets gig is likely to leave you thoroughly disturbed with a feeling of being more than just a little 'used' afterwards. Filthy Horror-Punk at it's finest!

6. KING GOAT
King Goat

Huge slabs of Doom-laden hypnotic grooves and a room full of smoke (mainly from the incense sticks) create the perfect atmosphere for which to hear that simply stunning vocal.

7. CONJURER
Conjurer

Conjurer played Mammothfest 2015 and were absolutely mind blowing. Riffs served up by the tonnage with roars and screams to match.

8. BLEED AGAIN
Bleed Again

Hook-fueled contemporary Metal played as it should be with grit, passion and energy. These guys know how to get a crowd moving so expect much sweat!

9. MAGNA CARTA
Magna Carta

Magna Carta are still in their infancy as a band but already they have shown huge promise for big things at some absolutely incendiary shows around the South Coast.

These are just a few of the many great bands on the line-up, chosen because I have seen them before (obviously, I took the photos!) and so can recommend from experience.

Do check out the Black Metal stage with Eastern Front headlining the first night at Green Door Store and The Infernal Sea playing earlier, who I have heard a lot of good things about. I'm also particularly looking forward to Venom Inc. headlining day 2 at Concorde 2. I have not seen them before but of course the music is legendary and historically influencial in the development of the extreme Metal genres. Always learn and respect Metal history, peeps!

Here's the full line-up... All info at www.mammothfest.uk
