Battle Kon 2: The Riffening All Dayer
Aatma, Manchester

KHAOZ KITTENZ!! Kringer and the Battle-Katz proudly present our SECOND BATTLE KON where we call on the greatest, the scariest, the weirdest, the funniest, and the bravest to play with us and lay waste to people’s ears, hearts and minds.

Headlining Battle-Kon 2 are the fantastic, the unholy, the really good at Sunday lunchs *drum roll please**

RAISED BY OWLS Grindcore with truly horrifying, and amusing, riffage! These guys create some of the most brutal tunes, and the video for their song “Ainsley Harriott advises you to give your meat a good old rub” has been viewed 41000 times.
He he he Yeah boiiiiii

RELICS a absolutely booming hardcore punk band from Huddersfield. These bombastic nutters are gonna screw up your insides and your brain. If you haven’t checked em out now then here’s your chance. Oh cheeky!

RIGGOTS will be howling up the place too, and they’re top. So there. 2 piece noisey bastards from Wigan. Like 2 characters from Sesame Street. Only alot weirder.

PULVERISE have been showing up on our radar for some time and we’re so happy they’re going to play. Female fronted Rap Metal from Leeds. Bet you didn’t think they just had gravy did you! The much-rumoured rap battle *could* be taking place!

KRINGER AND THE BATTLE KATZ. Party Metal. A mixture of groove metal and hardcore with slamming trombonic beats to make you lose your lunch! It wouldn’t be a Battle-Kon if the BKZ didn’t play, would it?!

PETROL BASTARD will be offering something very special to Battle-Kon 2 with heavy techno dance punk esque beats from Leeds. Weird place it is. We witnessed them at Batfest earlier this year and they will bring some vital shape-throwing for the event. What’s that? BEEFY!

EYE LICKER a mixture of Hardcore, Punk, Metal and Brutality. Cover your ears! Cover your bowels! These heavy bast*rds gonna rock your town!

OBSCENE NIHILIST will be present to lay waste to the populace, as expected with their Grindcore slammage. Whether they’ll be conscious (or whether we can wrangle them from retro bar) is another matter entirely.

£7.00 entry.

2pm till 10pm

Bring your friends. Bring your Nan.

Possible guest apperance from Trevor McDonald. Unconfirmed. Probably not.

The previous Battle-Kon on 30/10/16 was unsanctioned by Martin Battle and thus illegitimate. After careful negotiation, Battle-Kon 2 is sanctioned and officially “Battle Approved”. We thank Mr. Battle for his patience.
