Originally formed as a one off commission for ArcTanGent 2018, a unison founded by a shared love of contemporary heavy music and Buckfast, the collaborative effort from Pijn and Conjurer has quickly become the album of the year contender for many a lover of riffs. We recently got in touch with Dan Nightingale (Conjurer, guitars, vocals) who broke down the record track by track, detailing the background, stories and inspirations behind e...

With the torrential horrors that was yesterday's weather having now passed, the late summer sun shines down on a wet, but grateful Fernhill Farm this morning. However, within the shadows of the PX3, it feels like the odious weather has remained, with Sugar Horse (8) conjuring an atmosphere that’s akin to that of a hurricane.

Punters have been arriving in droves since Wednesday night and with more on the way today, five thousand people will be descending on Fernhill Farm for a weekend of post-rock, math-rock, noise rock, extreme metal and absolutely everythi...

One of the acts responsible for Holy Roar’s recent trailblazing run of success, Yohkai stage openers Boss Keloid (7) present their progressive and dense melting pot of psyched uber-sludge to the early arrivals.

Goodness me, we’re only a short number of days away from the incredible alternative and contemporary music celebration that is ArcTanGent. This time next week we’ll (hopefully) be basking in the late summer sun getting our collective minds blown by some of the best experimental music and artists available. With that in mind, here’s part two of our top 10 bands to see at the festival next week.

Pijn & Conjuer: Curse These Meta...

Whilst the previous day’s unsettled weather may have reduced parts of the site into swamps worthy of harbouring sea monsters, with the soft fluffy clouds drifting in the warm morning air, a pleasant and cheery vibe hangs over the festival this morning. With this in consideration, it feels like the perfect time for HCBP’s (6.5) first festival appearance. Featuring half of the now defunct Heck, the duo shares the energy, passion and DIY ethos of t...
