Gacys Threads

Metalcore to rip your face off. Awesome new band who could give any touring band in the same vein a run for their money. Energetic, fierce and committed, these are one of the bands to watch in the Irish/UK metal scene. Expect great things. Past experience has melded each member and their combined love of heavy and aggressive metal / hardcore has made a contender of Gacys Threads as Belfast's finest. ( Words by Pete at CURFEW 08 )
