Religion Of Tomorrow / Hellion Rising / Tundra
Religion Of Tomorrow were formed in Whitehaven in 2011 featuring Jordan Charters, Karl Christian and Richard Gill. This line-up settled after numerous changes and began developing their sound over the coming months, with sounds from memorable guitar riffs and aggressive drums, to emotive vocals and anthemic choruses. With a reputation of being loud and energetic, Hellion Rising combine their love for classic heavy metal, with modern groove filled licks to produce their own brand of original groove metal. Tease the pallet with a refreshing hit of metal from Death Crash Trucker and the March of the Sabretooth Tigers. The blend of soothing solos and monstorous riffs leaves a more ish aftertaste. Best enjoyed chilled with friends. Please enjoy responsibly. Tundra are a 3-piece rock band from Workington. They formed late 2013 when childhood buddies Dave and Hux started rehearsing with Dan. Their influences of Velvet Revolver, Nirvana and the Offspring has evolved into a loud punk rock se
