We want to bring you the best metal bands that the UK has to offer, so we spend our time outside of putting together our gigs, seeking out the next top quality acts that you have to see.

Below, you will find some of the acts we have had the fortune to have grace the Pandemonium Club stage, as well as some of the bands that we think are well worth a listen.



Dakesis (Da-key-sis)

Dakesis are a five piece Progressive-Power Metal band from Birmingham, UK. Considered by some as one of the UK's fastest rising independent artists, they have come a long way since their formation in 2008.

Mixing European power metal influences with home-grown heavy metal, a heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek cheese and a fair dash of contemporary Prog to create a unique blend of modern melodic metal.

Emerging from a thriving music scene in the home of metal, the band have achieved much in their time together including high profile support slots with masters of the genre, festival appearances, UK tours and a highly acclaimed self-titled E.P, racking up a rapidly expanding and incredibly devoted fan-base along the way.

Their latest release, the full length debut album "Trial By Fire" marks the result of two year's dedicated work. The album was self-funded and produced by the band with assistance from engineer Jack Traveller of Wyrmsblood Productions, and released on the bands own label CapsAArx records.

"Dakesis are in the business to write killer metal tunes, and that's what Trial by Fire is jammed full of. Tracks that want to make you thrown on your denim jacket, grab a beer and head bang like a mad man!" 9/10 - Matt Seddon, Planet Mosh
