The team behind Enblackened would like to thank everyone who made this event possible - the bands that played, our sponsors, those behind the scenes who worked hard, the press who came down to review and will speak of this event in the future, and of course the all important: everyone who came to join in the party.
On Saturday 15th May 2010, the NWOBBM (thats the new wave of british black metal folks!) made an impact in the London music scene. From opening act Reaping Havoc who saw a mosh pit by 4:10 in the afternoon - thats just ten minutes after doors opening - through to Abgott our headliners for this event, there was not a dull moment and we have heard nothing but good feedback ever since.
Photos and videos will be posted on this site in due course, and look out for Enblackened II in the near future!!
Formed to represent the UKs thriving black and blackened metal scene, Enblackened is organised by Envenomation Music and showcases the very best of UK black and blackened death metal, and is sponsored by Terrorizer Magazine, Total Rock Radio and Hughes and Kettner.
On May 15th 2010, our debut live outing showcases a selection of bands headlined by behemoths of the UK scene Abgott, backed up with the experimental extreme sounds of Candlelight Records' Xerath, the thrash and death metal influenced Empyreal Destroyer, the symphonic blackened metal of Traces, the raw heads down no holds barred approach of Primitive Graven Image, and guests Carpathia, Phyrexia and Reaping Havoc.
From the raw to the experimental to the symphonic, all will come together on May 15th 2010 to create this day of UK darkness. Support UK Black Metal! With a fifth of the tickets already accounted for on the facebook group within days and before any advertising and on word of mouth alone Enblackened is THE event for black metal in London in 2010.
The blackness is coming...
