DBM return to The Fighting Cocks in May

Bangers Embrace Presents and The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue proudly present


“From the depths of the fiery forge Vulcan play dark, dynamic heavy metal with intricate riffs, twisting grooves and barbed hook-lines check them out here”

“Tenacity. Determination. Resolve. Metal. Dead Before Mourning from Surrey, England are defined by these words and more.

Juggling the world as you do, journeyman frontman and guitarist Matt Hockham and the insanely talented drummer Steve Ebsworth came together in 2012. It was not long before the DBM ethos and direction were firmly decided on, and the incredible Dom Harvey was added on lead guitar. Pat McGarvey on bass soon followed within months to complete the line-up.”

“We welcome Vulgaris to the FC/BE fold… straight up brutal Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Black Metal… think Slayer, Venom, Baroness… bitchin'”


Doors at 8pm

Late bar open till 1am

The Fighting Cocks is an 18+ bar and venue. Pls bring photo ID to avoid disappointment.
