Hailing from Liverpool, these stoner doom frost giants put on a surprising set. While their aural aesthetic is all crushing doom and weighty sludge, their lyrical and conceptual inspiration comes from Norse mythology. The result is a kind of monumental Viking doom that surges forward with the relentlessness of a fleet of longships and crushes skulls like war hammers.
 
Their set was unexpectedly affecting, a combination of the sheer sonic weight and the battle-ready imagery, and clearly their performance won them a room full of new fans.
