Yet another night of legendary metal mayhem! Before we embark on the critique, a thunderous salute from all of us at Get Heavy UK to the phenomenal bands in Equitum, Ashes of Insurrection, Kraken Waker, and Kulpa - your musical sorcery shook the very foundations of Trillians Rock Bar!




Started off the show with a bang! It's no small task being the opening band for M2TM, but they confidently took charge of the stage and lit up the night with their lively performance. They set the tone for the rest of the evening, leaving the audience thrilled and ready for more. With their dynamic performance, Kulpa proved that they were more than just an opening act


Kraken Waker

Passionate about music, their enthusiasm shines brightly in every performance. Despite facing a minor technical glitch during the show, they maintained their composure. How they handle such challenges sets them apart. Remaining calm is crucial, something that Bloodstock and Metal 2 The Masses will take note of. Their deep affection for Beards, Beer, and Whiskey is evident, and they possess a special ability to unite people through their music. As they progress to the Semi-Finals, there's no question they will continue to mesmerize audiences and make a lasting impact with their distinct songs that celebrate life's simple pleasures.



With each live performance, they constantly elevate their show, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to honing their craft. The Trillians Rock Bar audience was ignited into a wild mosh pit, demonstrating their unwavering loyalty. Their progression to the Semi-Finals is a testament to their hard work and talent, with the potential to reach even greater heights.

Ashes of Insurrection

The final band of the night put on a powerful performance that truly stood out. The lead guitarist exuded incredible energy, performing as if it were his final show. The only critique was his tendency to occasionally block the bass player while on stage – while a strong stage presence is important, it shouldn't overshadow other band members. A simple adjustment of positions could have created a more dynamic performance. Despite these minor issues, they performed admirably and had the best banter of the evening.



As Heat 3 wraps up and three more heats remain, the competition is shaping up to be fiercely competitive. Equitum and Kraken Waker have now advanced to the Semi-Finals, joining Eversio, Sorrow, Culloden, and VIP Suite in the upcoming rounds. The battle for supremacy is heating up, with each band determined to secure their spot at the top.

Don't miss out on the action at Trillians Rock Bar on April 4th for Heat 4, featuring LN, Drenched, Melodic Disaster, and Edge of Obsidian. Be prepared for an epic night of incredible music and fierce competition as these bands vie for a chance to advance in the competition.
