The Sontaran Experiment

Named after the legendary Dr Who episode from the 1975, this band has been created to push music to its limits. Crushing doom, blastbeats, harsh electronics/vocals and a beautiful prog feel combine to push boundaries a little further in extremity.

The Agonyst

"The Agonyst began as a two piece experiment in 1998 with Louis Coates and David Perrin (IHU, Supernoisegod, Dog Eat Fondue, The Skagbeetles).
