METAL brutes Aghast! look set to tear the roof of Club 85 on Saturday with their patented mix of apocalyptic riffs and self-aware humour.

The four-piece have been making waves across the underground music scene over the past few years with their sheer determination and undisputed technical ability.

Aghast! describe their sound as a “skip full of broken glass being dragged across a car park, in 4/4 and on time, every time” and will be appearing in Hitchin fresh from a slot at London’s Kick Out The Jams festival.

Support is offered by old school thrashers Here Lies Affliction, and the amazingly named Burn the Yeti.

The show looks perfect for anyone who likes throaty vocals, savage guitar licks, and drums beaten like they’re being attacked by a deranged D-I-Y enthusiast.

Entrance is �5.
