Event details

In March, two of the most prominent and most respected post-metal bands of all time, the legendary Cult of Luna and Russian Circles, return to Kino Šiška. They will be supported by the flagbearers of the current British hardcore scene Svalbard, so we can look forward to an evening of contemporary roaring the likes of which we haven’t experienced in our parts before.

FOR FANS OF: Roadburn Festival, Neurosis, Deafheaven …

Despite the cancellation of their 2022 tour, which would also have brought them to Šiška, atmospheric sludgers Cult of Luna didn’t waste their time. They released their eighth solo album The Long Road North, a mature record that confirmed what those of us who had caught them live before already knew well – the band belongs in the very top of musical experiences, especially those based around unstoppable slow-moving sonic masses. In addition, founding member Johannes Persson also worked on a high-profile collaboration with Perturbator, one of the highlights of the famed Roadburn festival. The band is heading out on on tour next year even stronger and accompanied by another legend of the genre.

It has been more than seven years since Russian Circles last rocked our venue. The Chicago trio released two great new records in that time, the last, Blood Year, in 2019 via Sargent House and under the production guidance of Kurt Ballou (Converge). Work on a new release for 2023 is already underway. During the two decades of its existence, one of the most esteemed metal bands has remained faithful to an opulent instrumental sound, always surprising with the originality of their compositions, mastery of their musical instruments and the richness of their sound. Live, they go even further, so we have all reason to believe that the upcoming concert will shake the foundations of Kino Šiška to the core.

When Svalbard‘s third album When I Die, Will I Get Better? made it to the top 10 albums of 2020 at both Kerrang! and Metal Hammer, it merely confirmed an open secret of the British underground. The Bristolian band is one of the most vital bands in the Isles, and their vortex of aggressive, relentless, no-holds-barred music contains influences from all over – from hardcore to post-rock, from crust to black metal.
