Formed from a mutual love of all things heavy yet melodic, garganjua have been described as one of the most emotive bands in the UK underground scene, with festival appearances at bloodstock, along side bands such as goatwhore, mastadon, twisted sister, gojira, and UK tour support slots for bands such as Conan, Pallbearer, Bast, Ohhms, witchsorrow and samothrace, garganjua have had the chance to hold their own against some if the biggest names in the underground metal world. Their new album is set for release in 2017 following the success of their 2016 debut “a voyage in solitude”.
Mage live by the mantra, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, always god dammed heavy.
They have just released their 3rd studio album after previous releases through the now defunt, witchhunter records.
This was sadly written in honour of their founding member and guitarist, Ben Aucott who passed away in 2015.
Their latest offering GREEN is truly a great record which is filled with fat riffs crafted from a great skillset of musicianship and passion.
The last year has seen Mage produce blinding performances on UK festivals including a well reviewed set on the sophie stage at bloodstock 2016 and support slots with crowbar and just announced to play with charger in a 1 off UK show.
