Moss Continue UK Tour This Saturday In Birmingham

By on 29 April 2015


British doom overlords Moss are travelling to Birmingham this Saturday to headline Doom For The Doomed Festival, before heading on to play shows in Plymouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Newcastle, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Nottingham.

Moss have been going strong for over a decade now, and any doom fan worth their salt will already be very familiar indeed with Dominick Finbow’s menacing, snail paced riffs, Chris Chantler’s funeral procession beats and Olly Pearson’s spine chilling scream. The band’s most recent album however, ‘Horrible Night’ showcases a different side of Moss. Those evil slow motion riffs are still to be found in abundance, but the atmosphere is more traditional doom than abject horror, with Olly foregoing his trademark shriek in favour of soaring, Ozzy-esque melodies. The combination works perfectly, and finds the band reaching out into new territories that suit them extraordinarily well.
