Spanish theatrical metallers Suddenlash have been confirmed to their UK festival debut at Northern Symphony Festival. With a sense of tragedy that laments through their music and a strong sense of talent, Suddenlash are one band that must be seen live.

Joining the line-up as special guests are none other than the mystifying French melodic metal band Alwaid. Already with two UK tours under their belts and an appearance at Valkyrian Festival 2014, Alwaid are becoming recognised as one of France’s finest musicial exports! The band comments:

“It’s both an honour and a great pleasure for Alwaid to be part of the next Northern Symphony Fest edition! The projet is young but has gained an immediate success showing that symphonic metal (in the widest sense of the genre!) has not overstayed its welcome yet. We know we’ll get to share the stage with amazingly talented bands and meet with a madly enthusiastic audience, can’t wait!”

Early bird tickets are limited to only 100 and are available for £10 from either or

Once all the allocated early bird tickets have been sold, ticket prices will be £14!

Northern Symphony Festival will take place in Selby at The Venue and The Riverside on 16th April 2016.
