Victims of Creation (Malta) & Spirit Ruiner & Nomadus. 23rd Aug - Voodoo Belfast - Belfast

The Distortion Project Proudly presents the debut Belfast performance by Maltese sludgey, old school doom-death outfit Victims of Creation! They'll play VOODOO BELFAST on FRIDAY 23rd AUGUST, with support from Spirit Ruiner & Nømadus. Doors 8pm - Admission £6.00VICTIMS OF CREATION is a maltese band with a very heavy down-tuned sound carrying both the old-school Doom/Death and slow sludgey elements.Although the band was officially born in 1992 with founder members Rex and Dino, VOC feel that what it represents today all started in 2008 when Fred Burd, with whom both Rex and Dino played back then in a local Death-Metal act LITHOMANCY and an interesting project called TREE, was recruited on guitars. Some time after, Daniel Bartolo, guitarist also for another project Rex and Dino had with the name of GRIFFIN DEVICE, was also recruited as the second guitarist. In 2013 Daniel decided to part ways and was replaced by Emanuel Portelli.Some facts and dates:VOC played in MALTA DOOM METAL festival at the 1st edition in 2009 (back on stage after a long hiatus), 2010, 2011, 2013 (Debut gig for new guitarist Emanuel Portelli also from Animamortua, Thy Legion and ex-Sepia who replaces Daniel), 2014 & 2018 - through the various editions sharing the stage amongst others with bands like PAGAN ALTAR, OFFICIUM TRISTE, MANILLA ROAD, DEMON, THE SKULL & NECROPHOBIC.2011 – Record deal signed with German label CYCLONE EMPIRE.2013 – In April, debut album ‘Symmetry of Our Plagued Existence’ was finally released (under CYCLONE EMPIRE), launched during the last edition of DOOM SHALL RISE VIII in Germany where the band received a very good response!VOC played also in other local festivals THEY BROUGHT DEATH AND ETERNAL DOOM (Chapter III), THE MALTA DEATH fest III, the 2nd & 5th edition of METAL OVER MALTA (where SEPTIC FLESH played amongst others) & ROCK THE ROCK (right before ENTOMBED A.D.!)On foreign soil, apart from the launch in Germany (at DSR III), the band was part of DUTCH DOOM DAYS festival XIII (with ORANGE GOBLIN and the mighty ST VITUS!), the 4th edition of the great METAL DAYS festival in Tolmin Slovenia with WEEPING SILENCE (billing included INCANTATION, AT THE GATES, ELECTRIC WIZARD, KREATOR, TESTAMENT and IMMOLATION) and in 2017, went on the very first ever tour named ‘Till Doom Do Us Part’ together with German band CALLIOPHIS playing in various cities in Germany, Czech Republic and the Netherlands.We are currently working on our 2nd album which will be hopefully released very soon and we are planning some new dates abroad for 2019 & 2020, maybe also a mini-tour to promote the new album.Doomed Blessings!!! \m/VICTIMS OF CREATION is:Rex on Bass & VoxFred Burd on Guitar & Backing VoxEmanuel Portelli on GuitarDino Mifsud Lepre on DrumsVOC on Facebook: www.facebook.com/VictimsOfCreation & Instagram: www.instagram.com/victimsofcreation/Links to the songs from our debut album 'Symmetry of Our Plagued Existence':Chapter XXIII - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAlZv3mui38Tree of Iniquity - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tz0EKaOJfwgThe Art of Despair - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1guzGQJv6YThe Glorious Deceit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hg5kNGS1IboThose Left Behind - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaVoeQGYzz8VOC at Doom Shall Rise VIII:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HKc8kyOTFY - (Not really good quality)VOC at Dutch Doom Days:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P86a1oNJt4 - The Rape of Narcissus (unreleased track)VOC live in Goppingen during the ‘Till Doom do Us Part’ tour with Calliophis:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7fh3-eScMY - Veneration of the Inanimate (unreleased track)
