What better way of starting the new year by announcing two new bands joining the Go Loud Agency roster? It is with great pleasure that we’d like to welcome Stahlsarg (UK) and The Hakwins (SE) to the family!
UK black metal band Stahlsarg were conceived in 2013 in Suffolk, and immediately took to the road to travel through the UK and Europe. Their latest album, Mechanisms Of Misanthropy – Produced by Danny B Takoma and recorded at HVR studios in their hometown – was released by the band’s new label Non Serviam Records in October 2017, as a follow up to their debut album Comrades in Death (published by Mighty Music). The LP features a guest vocal from Kim Dylla (A winter lost, Gwar, Kung Fu Dykes) and an arrangement from Brian Moss from Vicious Pink.
The band’s most recent accomplishements include playing at London’s Incineration Festival alongside Sodom and 1349, as well as Beermageddon 2017 with the German black metal band Unlight. 2016 also turned out to be a remarkable year, during which Stahlsarg played gigs in Norway at the prestigious Inferno Metal Festival, in Germany at the Kings of black Metal Festival, as well as various shows in Holland, France, Belgium and the UK.
Stahlsarg currently have numerous dates booked throughout the year to support their latest release, and plan to take over Europe.
Stahlsarg are : Eissturm (Vocals & Guitars) | Krieg (Guitars) | Destruction (Bass) | Eisenfaust (Drums)
While in Latvia for a short yet successful mini tour, the Swedish fourpiece took the opportunity to visit our headquarters and ink the deal: We couldn’t be prouder. The band’s upcoming year is looking brighter than ever, with plenty of shows and projects in the pipeline.
The Hawkins is an energetic, highly-entertaining rock n’ roll piece. Their music is a perfect combination of blues-based rock groove (think Deep Purple) with the bullshit-free attitude of punk rock that most likely would have made Lemmy shed a little tear of joy.
Starting in March 2013, the band’s achievements quickly started piling up – including a tour of Russia, performing at world-famous festivals such Sweden Rock Festival, Peace & Love and Metallsvenskan, as well as signing a record deal with Swedish-based label GAIN/Sony Music.
The band has recently released their debut album, Ain’t Rock n Roll expected to be playing in and around Europe throughout 2018, starting with their upcoming tour with Corroded. More news coming soon!
The Hawkins are: Johannes Carlsson (Lead vocals/Guitar) | Mikael Thunborg: Guitar/Backing vocals | Albin Grill (Drums/Backing vocals) | Martin Larsson (Bass)
