Toxic Holocaust + Hellripper
The performance in Gdansk will be held with a revised lineup. Please read the details of the announcement below.
We regret to inform you that Abbath will not perform at the Gdansk concert on 30.01, as part of the Dread Reaver Europe 2024 tour. The reason for the band's absence is the funeral of the musician's mother, to whom we would like to express our deepest condolences.
You will still be able to see Toxic Holocaust and Hellripper concerts at Drizzly Grizzly on January 30. You are cordially invited to attend the event.
NOTE: Full or partial refund of purchased tickets is possible!
Those who decide to attend the concert will receive a refund of PLN 40 to the account from which they paid the fee. The condition for receiving a refund is to write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org from the address where you placed the order.
However, if you do not want to participate in the event, you have the opportunity to receive a 100% refund on your tickets - the condition is to write to us at: email@example.com from the address to which you placed the order.
Abbath has stirred up a lot of controversy and debate over the years, but his contributions to the vast world of black metal remain priceless. Whether it's in terms of his eccentric image with a strong wink, or his legendary riffs that still make the listener feel as if he has just landed in the realm of Blashyrkh. The Norwegian artist hasn't always had it easy, falling into numerous twists and turns, but everything suggests that he's finally back on track. This is evidenced not only by last year's excellent "Dread Reaver" (a goldmine of hits, we kid you not), but perhaps most importantly by his excellent concert form. The prince of the icy wilderness provides a live experience ready to freeze even the most persistent. Keep that thought in the back of your mind if you're still hesitating to buy a ticket for either of his two performances on the Vistula.
Toxic Holocaust's numbers - while becoming better produced and more precise over time - cut just as effectively from the start. It's all because Joel Grind knows how to dose the ingredients so as not to bore the listener, but to tar him all the time. These chaotic, often punk-laced black/thrash hits are sheer concreteness, zero theatrics and form over substance. Need proof? We recommend the latest in the project's discography, "Primal Future: 2019." There you will find the very sensible arguments supporting this thesis.
James McBrain recorded each of Hellripper's three albums entirely on his own, for which maximum respect. Not only has his cathartic work enabled him to be recognized in the black/speed community, but with all this, the Scotsman knows how to write hits that thrill crowds. Of course, hits that are raw, filthy, underpinned by black metal sulfur, but at the same time rich with such classy melodies that they don't fall out of your head. This is a tremendous art in the rich world of today's extremism.
