COVENANT FESTIVAL 2017: NIGHT TWO (BÖLZER, SORTILEGIA, QRIXKUOR, HARVEST GULGALTHA, SHROUD OF THE HERETIC, AMPHISBAENA, KANASHIBARI), 9 JUNE 2017
Today we deliver our coverage of the second night of Covenant Festival 2017. Plenty has been said elsewhere in terms of review, so before moving straight to the photo gallery let us sum up by saying that Sortilegia and Amphisbaena were especially noteworthy highlights, both performing genuinely entrancing sets in the hazy fog of a benighted Rickshaw Theatre. Local dark ambient solo act Kanashibari invoked abyssal sonority for its debut performance, setting the tone for subsequent sets. Though complicated by sound issues, Shroud of the Heretic’s set piqued one’s curiosity to hear their collected output at Bandcamp. Harvest Gulgaltha and Qrixkuor’s sonic wretchedness followed, delivering sonic wretchedness upon the gathered assembly and preparing attendees for the intensity of Sortilegia’s and Bölzer’s performances.
Night Three coverage coming up next week, stay tuned!
