I’ve been lucky enough to catch Dragged Into Sunlight twice in Bristol now (at Arctangent Festival 2013 and Temples Festival 2014 respectively), and on both occasions I left with my brain blown into brain pieces by their aura of absolute malevolence. I’ll be completing the hat-trick at The Exchange on the 9th of November, and I’m struggling to comprehend how it will feel to experience one of their sets in such an intimate venue.
This gig isn’t for the faint of heart. For those of you who aren’t aware of these blackened doom maniacs, expect an anonymous foursome with the rather unique trait of playing with their backs to the audience, under heavy strobe lighting and dry ice. It’s going to be sinister and disturbing, yet completely enthralling.
