Truly a transcendent experience live, we’re excited to be bringing them to Sheffield for the first time. Expect epic, breath-taking buildups as well as euphoric crescendos. This will be one to remember.
One of the UK’s most promising bands in the realm of heavy, Holy Roar Records’ ETS are a maelstrom of hardcore, grind and metal colliding to create a spiky, cerebral experience.

It may not sound like it, since the songs throw you around with infernal power and firm intensity, but Aiming For Enrike is actually only two musicians: One guitar and one drum kit. Together, Aiming For Enrike have created their own universe where everything is centered around what happens between the two of them.
