God Seed Alt-Fest UK Exclusive
July 11, 2014
The debut, ‘I Begin’, from King and Gaahl’s new project God Seed was released by Indie Recordings in 2012, and they have since played a number of standout festival performances – perhaps most notably, their packed Temple Stage headline set at Hellfest 2013.
Currently in the process of writing and recording the follow up to ‘I Begin’, God Seed have turned down a number of festival offers in favour of a summer of creation over performance – however, the lure of the UK audience has proved too tempting, and they will play an exclusive show at Alt-Fest 2014.

Over the past couple of years since the release of their last album ‘I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone’, Maybeshewill have been making a name for themselves as one of the most exciting and hard-working bands around. The band finished off 2013 by going out on their most extensive European tour yet with The Dillinger Escape Plan & Three Trapped Tigers, and since then have been hard at work on their fourth album.

Sólstafir Tour Dates
One of the most stunning and original bands to have emerged from the metal scene in recent years, Iceland’s Sólstafir are about to return from the wilderness with the follow-up to 2011’s breakthrough album, Svartir Sandir.
Released on August 29th via Season Of Mist Records, Ótta is another scenic and scintillating journey into the kind of achingly beautiful, wide-open realms you could only create if you were on intimate terms with both the mindbending landscapes on your doorstep, and the unquenchable yearning of your own heart.
NMC Live are incredibly proud to present Sólstafir’s European Tour in October and November 2014.
