Bro(UK) Promotions, Beatdown Records, High Roller Records, Unsilent Tombs Records, Gabriel Management, Iron Fist Magazine, Rock Hard Magazine... proudly present a weekend of legendary NWOBHM!

Bands in alphabetical order:

AXIS(UK) - Stockton-based AXIS emerged in the latter part of 1970s, releasing the scarce "Lady" 7". After disbanding in the early 1980s, AXIS have reformed to play a special one-off gig close to their old stomping ground. The Flame still Burns On!

BERLYN(UK) - After splitting and going their separate ways back in 1983, BERLYN will be returning back to the stage 31 years later to rock Newcastle like never before! With only a demo released in their time together, these guys should have gone a lot further. Luckily 2 LPs worth of live material were released in the 00's, which is just all exceptionally well written rockers! Featuring Maurice Coyne and Alan Levitt of URCHIN fame.

DAMASCUS(UK) - Underground Scouse legends DAMASCUS started their venture into the NWOBHM circuit back in 1982, releasing 1 demo tape and the rare and absolutely thundering "Open Your Eyes" 7". Thankfully making a return to the stage after 3 decades, you know this is gonna be one for all you Dreamers out there!

DARK HEART(UK) - Northallerton's DARK HEART started life as Tokyo Rose, and after releasing a 7" they changed to the more original moniker of DARK HEART. In 1984 they released the absolutely fantastic "Shadows of the Night" 12" on Roadrunner Records. After a final 7" release in 1987, this great band unfortunately came to an end, but they are returning for a special one-off performance for all the fans at BROFEST!

ELIMINATOR(UK) - Massive UK spandex bros all the way from big curly haired country, aka Lancaster. This will be the band's debut gig in the northern wastelands of NWOBHM upon Tyne. Young(HAH!) lads playing classic heavy metal, drowned in rum! Outlaws on the Highway all over the M1!

GASKIN(UK) - After a short hiatus, Mr Gaskin and his cohorts will be returning to the stage at BROFEST. One of the most well known underground NWOBHM bands will be swinging its way all over the festival - tear off your capes and get Ready For Love!

HOLLOW GROUND(UK) - Local NWOBHM legends HOLLOW GROUND make a welcome return to the live scene. Formed in 1979 and releasing the now insanely rare "Warlord" 7" in 1980, the lads are back and Flying High once more!

PAGAN ALTAR(UK) - Brockley town cult heroes make their first ever appearance on a northern stage! Formed way back in 1978, the lads in PAGAN ALTAR cranked out some of, what turned into, the most influential Heavy Metal in the underground. The distinct combination of relatives Terry and Alan is unmistakable, prepare to bang your head and swing those hips like it's 1978 all over again!

RULER(UK) - Honorary UK bros from the London borough of Milan(UK)! One of the freshest, most traditional sounding Heavy Metal acts out in the scene today. Paying homage to all the great bands of the NWOBHM era, while giving it a twist of their own. RULER truly are one of the forerunners of the current Traditional Heavy Metal revival!

SPARTA(UK) - Mansfield's SPARTA hit the circuit around 1979, initially under the name Xerox, they released 2 singles and 1 split record (with Savage and Panza Division) despite only being together for a decade, breaking up around 1990. The "Fast Lane" and "Tonight" singles are some of the catchiest and rocking releases from that period, its a pleasure to bring these guys back for everyone!

TOLEDO STEEL(UK) - The youngest band on the bill, southern UK based bros TOLEDO STEEL have been working hard over the past year to make waves in the underground, busting with razor sharp riffs and soaring vocals, these guys sound as if they were rocking the Marquee back in 1981 - they weren't even born until a decade later! For fans of Judas Priest/Iron Maiden/Grim Reaper - true traditional British Heavy Metal!

TRAPPAZAT(UK) - A special one off reunion from Mr Disgusting Trousers himself, Paul Britton! TRAPPAZAT actually only released one record back in the forgotten era of 2012, a true gem in a sea of junk! Filled with fantastic dual guitars, slick solos and soaring squeals, TRAPPAZAT are back to rock one final time!

MORE BANDS SOON!

I suppose that could be said for KIT/Muskelrock or Brofest, haha. Maybe check the videos from last year? all the bands put in a sterling performances. Most of the band members still actually play live whether in there bands from back in the day or something else. Also everyone seemed to have a good time last year from all the feedback we've had :)
