BEGGAR (members of Cordell, Munt, Gjöll, Class Traitor, and Yantra) are bringing their hammering doom out of lockdown, tunnelling further into the depths of hypnotic subconscious. Rebirth through repeating walls of noise.

CLASS TRAITOR (members of Munt, Bøg, Religious Observance, Beggar) have been writhing in dark corners through the pandemic and are now ready to birth their cathartic sludge. First show!
