Diesel King
Sludge
It's been a long time since UK Sludge heavyweights Diesel King have ventured down to these parts. Riffmass marks their triumphant return

THE PROPHECY
Doom/Death
These globe trotting Yorkshire Doom Mongers continue to spread their bleak but poignant misery with the recent release of their fifth opus 'Origins'. Emotive and intimate yet retaining the all the depth and heaviness of their doom death metal roots.

King Goat
Progressive Doom
Brighton's own Progressive Doom fever dream King Goat return to their annual Riffmass event with renewed fervour after the critically acclaimed release of their sophomore record, Debt of Aeons, earlier in the year.

Old Man Lizard
Stoner/Sludge 
"Proving that wielding a caveman level of heaviness doesn’t mean you can’t have some soul too, Suffolk based trio Old Man Lizard’s part blues jam, part country-infused stoner onslaught feels steeped in the bucolic atmosphere of their semi-rural surroundings" - Metal Hammer

Famyne
Doom
Canterbury Doomsters Famyne have gained a reputation for combining elements from Doom, Stoner, Hard-Rock, Heavy Metal, Psychadelia, Prog and Grunge, in order to forge a unique sound of their own, along with their energetic and hypnotic live performances.

Consecration
Doom/Death
Sepulchral and ferocious with the dread pace of a lumbering behemoth, Consecration play the soundtrack to the funeral for us all.
New album 'Fragilium' is due to be recorded during the autumn of 2018

Shrykull
Doom/Black
Nottingham two-piece who attempt to express the uglier sides of doom, grind and black metal via the medium of excessive gurning and amplifier abuse

Embet Henx
Weirdo/Rock/Riffs
These Brighton weirdos have created a strange blend of blues filled noise rock, sprinkled with funky feels and a punk attitude. "One of the most engaging live bands we've seen in a while."

Pascagoula, the band
Sludge/Doom/Noise
"Harvey Milk Certainly, Eyehategod at times, Moloch Perhaps" - The Quietus 

Wallowing
Doom/Noise
Misery and disgust from the South of the UK. 
Channelling aggressive, hate-fuelled Noise through Blackened-doom and frantic grindcore whilst touching upon real-world themes and realities, Wallowing create a sound perfect for the demise of humanity
