The Facemelter: Massacres, DKH, Captive

This month, Chaos Theory brings you a bunch of new hardcore, punk and metal bands to The Facemelter.


This freshly-formed four-piece have arrived with a hearty appetite for cut-throat riffs, savage vocals and unhinged live performances. Their debut EP ‘BRUTUS’ , recorded with producer Jason Wilson (Reuben, The Ghost Of A Thousand, You Me At Six), was released in February this year and received great reviews from all over.

Their track ‘Death Knell’ has already been featured on the cover CD of Metal Hammer in April, so these guys have got chops. Get involved and check them out before they start to get big.

“A blend of brute force and smart surprises” – Metal Hammer


An absolutely furious five-piece from Brighton, crushing hardcore, harsh electronics, noise and sludge together to make a glorious onslaught of sound.

They’ve shared the stage with Torche, Monotonix, Ken Mode, Art of Burning Water, Drainland, Hawkeyes, Dead Existence, Astrohenge, The Painted Smiles, Dysrhythmia and Magrudergrind, so we doubt that it’ll be a quiet one!

Check out their last few EPs on their bandcamp, you won’t regret it.

“Fans of Cave-In, Converge, High on Fire and Superjoint Ritual take heed and rejoice” – Heavy Planet


These Londoners are bringing their own take on melodic hardcore to a wider audience this year with their first major release ‘This House’. Fusing melodic and post-hardcore, and calling on influences including Being As An Ocean, Architects, and Underoath, these guys will satisfy fans of old and new sounds in the heavy world.

Start: August 5, 2016 7:30 pm
End: August 5, 2016 11:00 pm
Venue: The Black Heart
Phone: 020 7428 9730

The Facemelter: HAG, the guts, We Wild Blood

Chaos Theory brings you hearty feast of live sludge, hardcore, noise and math metal, in the latest installment of their monthly heavy night The Facemelter.


Self-proclaimed “eagle-metal”, who have been slowly smashing through the sludge, noise and stoner rock underworlds of the UK since 2010. After their mighty new album ‘Fear Of Man’ was released in January, things have massively picked up for the trio.

After they had to cancel playing at The Facemelter last December due to a bucketload of obstacles being thrown their way, we definitely have unfinished business with these riff lords.

“The drums rumble on like the pounding hooves of charging cavalry and the riffs come tumbling like a drunk through a pub toilet door” – Echoes And Dust

the guts

A recently formed mathcore band from Brighton birthed by former members of mathy/jazzy/punky bands Bastard Eye Scream and edityourhometown, who’ve toured the UK over several years, performed at Ynot Festival and supported Vennart.

With one of the most exciting demos we’ve been sent in years, this is going to be a high-octane joyride for any fans of Norma Jean, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Chariot.

Their debut EP ‘Birth’ is out in July, with their debut single ‘Neckless’ currently streaming exclusively on Chaos Theory’s website.

We Wild Blood

A drone and power punk noise trio from London, who’ve been going as a duo for years until the recent addition of a bassist.

They’ve already created rumblings in the underground after playing with bands including Luminous Bodies, Shitwife, Death Pedals, Casual Nun, Henge, Dethscalator, Snapped Ankles, Sly And The Family Drone and Yards.

Their first physical release, a 5-track cassette, is out on awesome new label Hominid Sounds on 13th June, and they’ll be playing material from the new EP at The Facemelter tonight.
