Next year’s edition of ‘Kin Hell Fest, the Leeds extreme metal fest taking things over, was already shaping up nicely with the confirmation of ten top bands and the securement of a 1400-capacity venue. But as Professor Brian Cox’s former band once famously sang, things can only get better. And better they did, with the announcement of some of the top names in underground metal, punk and hardcore, past, present and for the future.
Undoubtedly the biggest announcement here is the addition of pioneering crust-punk/death metal veterans Deviated Instinct. DEVIATED INSTINCT! Having reformed in 2007 have a long time apart, they will be in Leeds to rain hell to the crusty legions at hand. Bradford’s true metal warriors Conquest of Steel will also be gracing the festival with their over the top charge of battle anthems and incomparable showmanship.
The fest also confirmed plenty of new blood, with the addition of Nottingham d-beat/hardcore crew Death Tripper – whose split with Meatpacker kicked off 2013 with style, Scottish crushers Iniquitous Savagery, and London death metallers Acrania, in what is already looking like an ultra-brutal line-up set to blow a hole in White Rose country once again.
