Hades Lab Review – Incineration Fest, London

hades lab 2

Hades Lab, a five-piece crushing ensemble from the UK ignited a flame at this year’s Incineration Fest, scalding the audience with  relentless guitar riffs, driven drums and blistering vocals that altogether branded the audience with their unique brew of grind, death and black metal: these guys are not be to be given the cold-shoulder.

The band’s first track Harbouring Atrocities is guitar led, fusing tuneful riffs and alternating time signatureSAMSUNG CSCs with a heady dose of angst showcasing the impeccable musicianship of the band. Dynamic shifts of rhythm and guttural vocals make this track atrociously addictive. Their track Archetypal Inhuman Madness is more stripped down in comparison, allowing as the front-man Hauron says “time to savour the ingredients”. Hauron’s stentorian vocals wreak havoc, Rushy’s incessant drum-work alongside the triple threat of Geoff, Andrew and Charlie’s tight-knight guitars is pure melodic madness that infects the audience with hysteria.

Their orgasmic cover of Gorgasm’s Seminal Embalmment made the audience combust with excitement. Delivering the track with ease and flaunting the ensemble’s technical proficiency, the fire in the audience was unleashed – heads banging, fists-pumping – truly electric.  The onslaught continued with a rendition of CarcassReek of Putrefaction that reeked of anger and aggression, defiling the audience with their energy and charisma. The band later soldiered on with Sepultura’s Troops of Doom concluding with a flawless cover of Suffocation’s  Infecting the Crypts. Hades Lab‘s ability to renew classics in a tidal wave of energy that pulls audience’s under is like a calling card. Overall, the covers demonstrated the band’s potential to deliver earth-shattering performances with finesse, technicality and charisma.

With material in progress, the band is well on their way to headline tours across the UK and beyond.

Overall Rating – 7/10

Members: Hauron – Vocals,  Andrew – Guitar,  Geoff – Guitar/Vocals, Charlie – Bass, Rushy – Drums.

About Kinks

She might as well have popped out of the womb flashing the devil horns. Her colourful musical taste is just like her hair – a classical singer with a smidge of Arabic and Scandinavian influence, and a bit of growling in between, y’know, your typical run-of-the-mill mish-mash. Mozart by day Burzum by night. A pint-sized ball of colourful fury, don’t let her stature deceive you. She’s a hellbeast, thirsty for metal. She’s not just sitting in England sipping on tea, but guzzling metal knowledge from every source possible. Her music degree focused on metal studies (well, the university didn’t have much choice). Either way, she is a first class metal maiden. Keeping a critical eye on metal from before her days and right now, scrutinising with the electric eye – what makes the beast tick?
