PELAGIC ROAD FEST with: ABRAHAM (CH), SET AND SETTING (USA) and FUTURE USSES (USA) on 28.10.2018 at Club Live & Loud

ABRAHAM are a post-metal band established in 2008 in Lausanne, Switzerland. During their nine years of existence, the band created its own identity among a flourishing scene and managed to successfully export itself. Their two albums released on Pelagic Records were highly acclaimed by critics and fans and supported by a hundred of shows throughout Europe. The band now has a growing reputation and good mediatic coverage over Europe and the United States. The five musicians show unalterable passion, assiduity and a ferocious will to mark their music by their own personalities. Although the band finds itself somewhere at the crossroads leading to CULT OF LUNA, NEUROSIS, BREACH or WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, ABRAHAM mark their compositions of their personal print through original guitar playing, weird synthesizer sounds and dark and oppressive ritual rhythms. The main singer’s deep, aggressive and prophetic growl intertwines with the drummer’s singing, off the wall and wrecked. Each of their releases is followed by a European tour as well as opening shows in Switzerland, sharing the stage wit international acts such as DEAFHEAVEN, CONVERGE, RED FANG, INTRONAUT, KHOMA, EF, CELAN, KNUT or BIRDS IN ROW. In 2013, ABRAHAM support CULT OF LUNA on a dozen of European shows, there-fore playing in front of a larger and more specialized audience. The same year, they go on tour headlining in Germany, Netherlands and France, then support THE OCEAN throughout eastern Europe. In parallel, they take part in big scale events such as Inferno Festival (Lausanne), Pelagic Fest (Berlin), Beyond the Redshift (London) and Rock Al-titude (Le Locle), thus confirming their arrival among indispensable bands of the metal scene. In 2014 they release an experimental sixteen minutes song on a split EP with the Chaux-de-Fonds-based band COILGUNS, foreboding of darker atmospheres that take place on their forthcoming album. From 2014 on, they focus on writing their third effort.

St. Petersburg, Florida's SET AND SETTING is an instrumental post-rock powerhouse.

“Gorgeous and unexpectedly heavy… There is a quiet joy held within its tangle of notes… There are metallic moments coursing underneath… Now more than ever, we need beautiful music – and Set and Setting has delivered.” – Noisey

“Melancholic beauty suspended in the clouds with a birds-eye view of epic terrain… Soul-searing leads and shimmering, bending guitars that convey feelings of wonder and introspection.” – Stereogum

“Set and Setting bring a unique sound… The post-rockers throw a hint of psychedelia and even a metallic edge… The result is a captivating, wordless, genre amalgam.” – Decibel

"This quartet has a gorgeous and unexpectedly heavy sound." – Alternative Press

"Set and Setting are somehow self-releasing their third record, when it’s one of the best albums in its genre, ever, standing tall alongside masterpieces by Pelican and Russian Circles." – Bandcamp

"Metallic chug to trippy psychedelia to soaring post-rock beauty..."
Brooklyn Vegan

FUTURE USSES (USA) have really only played a handful of shows in their short career, main songwriter Sacha Dunable has been a member of INTRONAUT for almost 15 years, and dabbled with various doom metal projects over the years, like Bereft (LA). FUTURE USSES takes small elements of what those bands do and magnifies them, combining the slow-motion crushing power of doom with the atmosphere and dense harmonic tendencies of INTRONAUT.
