Festival News - HEAVY MASH Announces Full Line-Up

After last year’s successful event, we are pleased to announce this year’s Heavy Mash! Once again, our great friend Wade hosts this event at Division Brewing in Arlington, TX on October 13th, 2018. Nothing but heavy music and great beer! Here is this year’s line-up: 

Headlining this event is heavy psychedelic stoner metal band DUEL (Heavy Psych Sounds) from Austin, TX. Hugely influenced by the darker sounds of early 70’s Proto-metal. Their sound is menacing and brutally old school. 

Great Electric Quest (Totem Cat Records) from San Diego, CA will bring the stuff you can drink beer and rock out to with some good friends. 

Mountain of Smoke (Do For It Records) from Dallas, TX will bring their version of heavy hitting sludge to this little fest. These dudes are not to be missed. 

Doomstress (DHU Records / No Slip Records) from Houston, TX brings a hard edge to modern doom w/nods toward classic influences featuring heavy riffs, tasty grooves & powerful female vocals. 

Stone Machine Electric (Off the Record Label) from Hurst, TX is the duo best known for their weird approach in crafting a darkened and spacious vision of psychedelic jamming. Doom Jazz, it is Doom Jazz! 

Switchblade Jesus (Ripple Music) from Corpus Christi, TX is a dirty and dusty sounding trio bringing their rusted and grease-soaked metal up to the streets of Arlington. 

Orthodox Fuzz of Fort Worth, TX bring a riff driven heavy rock with both classic and modern influences to the stage. 

Witchcryer (Ripple Music) from Austin, TX are a 4-piece old-school doom metal band as indebted to the heavy rock muscle of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and Blue Oyster Cult as their doom descendants Witchfinder General, Trouble, and St. Vitus. 

Gypsy Sun Revival (Nasoni Records) is a psychedelic rock band hailing from Fort Worth, TX. The group aims to take listeners on a long distance trip to the outer reaches. 

Dead Hawke of Fort Worth, TX is an all-around metal band, bringing you doom, sludge, and stoner tunes for your rock n roll pleasure. 

Division Brewing, The Obelisk, Ripple Music, Fistful of Doom podcast, Texas Metal Show podcast, and Off the Record Label from the Netherlands sponsor this event. Big thanks to these folks for helping this event to flourish!
