25th September 2013 : With 10 months to go to the 7th SOS Festival, we're extremely happy to confirm our first 6 bands for 2014....

 


 

Absolva made a meteoric start in May 2012, formed by Chris Appleton & Martin McNee of Fury UK, following the departure of Luke Appleton to Iced Earth. Absolva played a debut show at SOS Festival 2012, before releasing a universally lauded debut album "Flames Of Justice" in November. They've toured UK & Europe consistently including Bloodstock & hammerfest, & release a live DVD & CD "Beyond Live" this month. By the time SOS 2014 comes around the band will have released a 2nd studio album.

Back in 1982 Tysondog released a debut album "Beware Of The Dog" which many respected music critics, such as Geoff Barton and Malcolm Dome, expected to project the band to the "big league". Although lady luck in those days failed to smile on the band, they forged a reputation as a shining example of the NWOBHM scene before calling it a day just in 1987. Little was heard of the band until the past 5 years or so, when the spirit and ethos of the NWOBHM scene is once again alive and kicking. Tysondog very ably remind us just why they were regarded as such hot property in the first place.

Peter Ellis, formerly of White Wizzard and The More I See, formed Monument in 2011 and has stirred an incredible groundswell of support and praise as genuine purveyors of true British heavy metal. With thunderous melodic bass tones, dual guitar harmonies, rock solid drum beats and signature falsetto wails, Monument is determined to make a difference. Witnesses to their performance at Hammerfest 2013 will duly testify.

Having concentrated our line-up as above so far on British heavy metal, we turn to a regular at SOS Festival and a slightly different NWOBHM - the New Wave Of Belgian Heavy Metal? Formed in 2008, Wizz Wizzard have established themselves as firm favourites with evermore accomplished live performances headed up by the charismatic frontman Wizz, who carries with him more than a hint of Ronnie James Dio and Biff Byford.

The first of our heavier bands is a returning band from the 2013 SOS Festival. Those in attendance on day two last year will have a seen an exciting delivery of technical, progressive, multi-textured, melodic death metal. There was also the matter of an inspired acoustic set on day one with the band's songs lovingly re-crafted for unplugged delivery and superbly performed. Fans that witnessed the band at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 will also vouch for their excellence.

The international presence in our first announced bands is completed by offering a very warm welcome to another Belgium band Eternal Breath. The band has existed with various line-ups for around 15 years and in the past 2-3 years has pushed forward with a growing flock of support in their homeland and we're delighted to help introduce the band to British audiences in 2014.
