UADA, Metuzalem @Mochvara, Zagreb - 25.07.2024

After five years in Močvara, American blackers UADA are returning! It will fill the hot summer days with its pleasant blackness on Thursday, July 25. Tickets at a pre-sale price of 21 euros can be purchased online through Hangtime ticketing (https://tickets.hangtimeagency.com/) or at Dirty Old Shop (Tratinska 34).

Croatian black metallions are already well acquainted with this band, for whom this will be their third performance in Močvara. The whole story begins in 2014 in Portland, and according to them, the band’s name means “haunted” in Latin. Their sound can be classified in the drawer of melodic black, stylistically in many ways close to bands such as Mgla, Gaerea, Groza… Jake Superchi, the band’s founder, cites Dissection, Danzig as influences, but also has a pinch of NWoBHM, grunge and gothic. . So far, they have released four studio albums: Devoid of Light (2016), Cult of a Dying Sun (2018), Djinn (2020) and the most recent Crepuscule Natura from last year, which they will promote on this occasion. See you on July 25 in Močvara!

CRADLE OF FILTH, Tvornica Kulture, Zagreb – 27.07.2024
Jul 27 all-day
CRADLE OF FILTH, Tvornica Kulture, Zagreb - 27.07.2024

Early bird tickets are sold out! The presale price is 33 euros, and if there are any left, on the day of the concert, you will need to pay 37 euros for the ticket. They can be purchased online through Hangtime ticketing (https://tickets.hangtimeagency.com/) or at Dirty Old Shop (Tratinska 34).

Cradle of Filth was formed in the English town of Suffolk in 1991. The early days were to some extent marked by the sound of black metal, but over time they added gothic and symphony influences to their musical expression, so as it happens when you approach it very eclectically – you put them in the “extreme metal” drawer. To tell the truth, even the band members themselves, especially the founder Dani Filth, were not particularly determined on this issue during their entire career. Cradle of Filth has always drawn its inspiration from gothic literature, poetry, mythology and horror films. The band has always attracted some controversy around itself, while parents and relatives were not necessarily the happiest if you wore COF shirts there in the mid-00s, which a significant number of metallions did.
Three years after their founding, they released the iconic The Principle of Evil Made Flesh, which was included in the “top 10 most important black metal albums of the last 20 years” by Metal Hammer magazine. Four years later, they released probably their most famous release, “Cruelty and The Beast”, a concept album dedicated to the Hungarian baroness with a rather awkward character, Báthora Erzsébet.
The band soon reaches the peak of popularity, they regularly cause controversies around the world, the BBC is making a documentary about them, Dani Filth has the main role in the film “Cradle of Fear…”

SUFFOCATION - Zagreb, Mochvara - 29.07.2024

After a little more than four years and a fantastic concert right before corona, Suffocation returns to Močvara as part of the “Bow To None” European tour to make the hot summer even hotter and more inconvenient. Because it’s Suffocation after all. The date of this death metal festival is July 29. Tickets at the early bird price of 23 euros can be purchased online until April 1. or out of stock via Hangtime ticketing (https://tickets.hangtimeagency.com/) or at Dirty Old Shop (Tratinska 34), and via the CoreEvent system and at their points of sale. After that, their presale price will be 28 euros.

Suffocation are death metal pioneers founded 36 years ago in Centereach, New York. They drew attention to themselves in 1991 with their debut Effigy of the Forgotten, which immediately became a classic of the genre. After that, they released eight more studio albums, the most current of which is Hymns From The Apocrypha, which saw the light of day in November last year, and which will have a strong emphasis on this occasion in Močvara. It also features the video for “Seraphim Enslavement”, their last video directed by Tom Flynn. It is also worth noting that there was a nice collaboration on the song “Ignorant Deprivation”: the vocalist is Frank Mullen, one of the founders of the band, and the lyrics were written by Mike Smith, the band’s former drummer.

They cited Napalm Death and Sepultura as their role models in the early stages of the band, while their playing trademark, breakdowns, is considered one of the cornerstones of a whole new subgenre: deathcore. The members of the band are lead guitarist Terrance Hobbs, bassist Derek Boyer, rhythm guitarist Charlie Errigo, drummer Eric Morotti and vocalist Ricky Myers, who has been a permanent member of the band since 2019, and is otherwise a vocalist in the American death metal band Disgorge. All in all, a nice party is being prepared in Močvara, just like last time.

ELLENDE, Groza, Servant – Zagreb, Mochvara – 14.10.2024
Oct 14 all-day
ELLENDE, Groza, Servant - Zagreb, Mochvara - 14.10.2024

On October 14 (Monday), Močvara will host black metallers of German origin, in which all members are introduced exclusively by their initials: the Austrian Ellende, who will make their first appearance in Croatia, and the German Groza, whom the Zagreb audience met at a great concert at this same place in December In 2022, the evening will also be opened by the German Servant. Tickets at a presale price of 24 euros can be purchased online through Hangtime ticketing (https://tickets.hangtimeagency.com/) or at Dirty Old Shop (Tratinska 34). If there are any left, they will cost 28 euros at the entrance.

Ellende is a black metal solo project created in 2011 in Graz, and behind it is L.G. A year later he gathered session/live musicians around him. “Elend” in ancient times in some parts of Germany would roughly mean “outcast” in the sense of ostracism, and today it can be translated as “wretched” or “miserable”. The band has released four albums so far, and the most current of them, “Ellenbogengesellschaft” from 2022, will be promoted on this occasion in Močvara. And as for the initials and band members, here they are: P.F. (live/studio drum), L.B. (live guitar), D.B. (live guitar), S.L. (live bass) and L.G. (everything else including design).

Groza was created in 2016 in the Bavarian town of Mühldorf am Inn as a solo project. Better connoisseurs of black metal opportunities and the world will immediately associate this name with Mgla’s first studio album from 2008, and founder P.G. he does not hide the great influence of these Poles on his musical expression. After two years of P.G. gathered the band around him and soon after that their debut album “Unified in Void” was released by AOP Records. Three years later, they released the album “The Redemptive End” for the same publishing house. Fans of bands such as the already mentioned Mgla, Uada or Geara will surely sympathize with these Germans who are slowly but surely building their name in the world of black metal, and this was shown by their first performance in Močvara, which was really, really good. but also surprisingly well attended.
Band members are P.G. on vocals and guitar, as well as his colleague U.A., while T.H.Z plays drums.

After 12 years, the Greek symphonic death metallers Septicflesh are returning to Croatia, i.e. 13 years since their performance in Boogaloo, where they will play again in front of the local metalion audience!

Septicflesh was formed in 1990 in Athens when Soritis Vayenas (guitar), Spiros Antoniou (bass/vocals) and his younger brother Christos (guitar) got together. Already a year later, they released their first EP, “Temple of the Lost Race”, while their first studio album, Mystic Places of Dawn, was released in 1994 and was co-produced by Magus Wampyr Daoloth, keyboardist of Rotting Christ. Since then, they have released 10 more albums, the most current of which is “Primitive Modern” from 2022, which they are promoting on this occasion at Boogaloo.
Their style can be described as symphonic death metal, and this is best evidenced by the live album Infernus Sinfonica MMXIX, which they recorded with a symphony orchestra and choir in Mexico. In addition to the aforementioned founders, the band also includes Kerim “Krimh” Lechner, former drummer of Decapitated who recently sold out Močvara, and Dinos “Psychon” Prassas on rhythm guitar.
