BOSS KELOID formed in 2010, Wigan, UK. Their latest and fourth album Melted On The Inch was released on Holy Roar Records to worldwide critical acclaim. It has been described as a “huge, complex behemoth with a surprising uplifting feel” by Terrorizer Magazine, an “enthralling exercise in uber-heavy psych” by Metal Hammer Magazine, a “masterclass in heavy, progressive metal” by Louder Than War, and a “lusciously produced, immaculately crafted piece of music” by Pure Grain Audio. James Scarlett (ArcTanGent’s organiser) cited Melted On The Inch as his No.2 album of 2018 and described it as “a wonderful melding of 70s prog and modern doom”.

Kerrang Magazine described BOSS KELOID’s 2019 performance at Bloodstock Festival as a “stunning set of unclassifiable, sort of techy, sort of prog-sludge”, with Metal Hammer Magazine declaring “like the very best bands, BOSS KELOID look and sound like a hotch potch of proper weirdos and outsiders. And they’re fucking excellent for it”.

Two-piece TUSKAR have been building their reputation as the band to watch in UK heavy music’s underground scene since the release of their debut EP, Arianrhod, in 2017. The “Nuclear Sludge” label started as a joke between Tyler Hodges (Drums, Vocals) and Tom Dimmock (Guitar), but nothing else has come close to describing the sound made by the duo as they draw from influences as diverse as early Mastodon, Sleep and Conan. Their 2018 EP The Tide Beneath The Wall has had more than 370k streams on Spotify, and they followed it up with the three track live EP The Monolith Sessions in 2019, recorded with Steve Sears Jr. (Gallows). One of the most exciting live bands in UK metal right now, their debut album is due out on Riff Rock Records in 2021.

Having teamed up with heavy music livestream specialists, Hotel Radio, you can also catch TUSKAR at their show with Ungraven this week on Wednesday October 15th, which will be available to stream via pay-per-view for only £3.99. Tickets are available from Hotel Radio’s website: https://www.hotel-radio.com/pay-per-view/the-blackheart/tuskar-ungraven-live
