The Smiths Ltd

Saturday 18th April

Academy 3

The Smiths Ltd were formed in 2009 and being the ONLY Smiths tribute band from and based in Manchester, they have a unique selling point and an authenticity that is hard to beat.  Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right. They use the same guitars, bass, amps and drum kit that The Smiths used on their very last tour to capture that quintessential sound.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute. If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Four years after legendary Destruction exclaimed the »Spiritual Genocide« Schmier, Mike and Vaaver return with a bang! »Under Attack« is as nasty as possible and as catchy as necessary and will be released on May 13 2016. 33 years after establishing Destruction sound as angry as in the beginning. Just the songwriting is light-years away from the eighties; it’s much more mature and mellow. Convince yourself and bang your head to »Under Attack«.

Founded in 1982 the trio got to the top of the national thrash metal movement. Albums like »Infernal Overkill« or »Eternal Devastation« are part of the heavy metal canon, but even later works like »All Hell Breaks Loose« or »The Antichrist« are glorious moments in thrash. Destruction are part of the “Big Teutonic 4” for a good reason. And they are still touring the world with great success.

For »Under Attack« the band changed their proven mode of operation. Instead of booking a studio for a couple of weeks Schmier and his mates decided to enter different places (Gernhart Studios in Germany, VO Pulver’s Little Creek Studios in Switzerland among others) between September 2015 and January 2016 whenever possible. “We really took our time for this album”, Schmier stated. “Maybe this was the most effective writing we did in the last years! Due the fact we had more time in between the albums, there was a lot of musical output and creativity, but also less pressure. You can definitely hear the kick-ass attitude we brought from the shows into the studio. The 'on tour into the studio on tour mode' was so effective that I wanna keep this method for the future.” Schmier added: “How does the new record sound? For sure not like a band that is in its 33 years of existence.”

If you listen to songs like the anthemic title track, the fast and catchy “Generation Nevermore”, the wrecking ball “Pathogenic” or the complex “Conductor Of The Void” you will agree for sure. Schmiers voice cuts glass, Mike plays some of his best riffs and licks ever and Vaaver batters everything down. The impressing cover artwork, once again done by the Hungarian artist Gyula, completes »Under Attack«. Or to use the words of Schmier: “It’s fast, it’s catchy and it’s original.”

Founded by three teenagers in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1982, Corrosion of Conformity began as an underground band and went on to transform heavy music, challenging boundaries and serving as what Decibel Magazine called “a crucial stylistic lynchpin in the bridge between metal and punk” that “irrevocably reshaped crossover’s sonic possibilities.”

Thirty years and many changes later, COC’s original trio is back with a self-titled release for London-based independent Candlelight Records.

“Corrosion of Conformity isn’t a comeback album or an example of diminishing returns,” Invisible Oranges observed. “It’s a testament to immense talent and the elusive endowment of staying power.”

DEATHSTARS were formed in Strömstad, Sweden in 2000 – born of a variety of influences ranging from black and death metal, to rock ’n’ roll and industrial. They’ve released four full-length studio albums to date; Synthetic Generation (2003), Termination Bliss (2006), Night Electric Night (2009), and The Perfect Cult (2014). The band has stated that Synthetic Generation was a bit of an experiment and challenge, the members all having come from underground extreme metal bands, which was more familiar territory at that point.Termination Bliss garnered the group immediate attention, the band touring with Cradle Of Filth in 2006 in its wake - whilst follow-up Night Electric Night launched them internationally, lauding them enormous praise and landing them a tour with Rammstein in arenas throughout Europe. Latest album The Perfect Cult saw them continue their impeccable run – welcoming their first ever North American tour, and sadly the departure of Cat Casino, who has now returned to the fold.
