Gnaw Their Tongues (NL) - Black Metal / Experimental
"Gnaw Their Tongues is an interesting case among the many and varied musical identities adopted by Mories de Jong. Where Cloak Of Altering, Aderlating or De Magia Veterum, for instance, opt for a slightly straighter symphonic or even ambient(ish) take on the black metal form, and Seirom lifts off into something closer to cosmic shoegaze, Gnaw their Tongues plunges wrist-deep into the guts of human misery. Unflinchingly violent and macabre, the sometimes overly visceral crime scene artwork puts de Jong's music at the viscerally misanthropic end of the musical spectrum."
Vehement (UK) - Extreme Metal
"South coast metallers Vehement fought back from some initial sound issues to deliver what would be one of my standout sets of Bloodstock...Musically they had a nice abrasive black metal guitar tone, droning notes and raspy vocals, however with a slightly more progressive tone to it similar to emperor at times. I really enjoyed their performance and judging by the large responses so did the majority of the crowd. Definitely a standout New Blood set for me."
Necronautical (UK) - Extreme Metal
"The band recruited Slugh on drums in 2015 and set about recording their second album. Necronautical released "The Endurance at Night" in the summer of 2016 via Cacophonous Records, and with a music video for the song "Nihilartikel'. The album recieved high acclaim from critics and saw the band featured in magazines such as Metal Hammer (UK) and Power Play (DE) among others."
