THE EARLS OF MARS – There is certainly no way to categorize the oddity known as THE EARLS OF MARS. „One look at the track titles of their debut self-titled phantasmagoria of an album will have you simply delighted unless you have no imagination,” says AveNoctum of the Londoners full-length debut. The Sludgelord calls the album, „a delightfully odd, macabre, and ultimately unique experience.” The Bloodstock Open Air alumni are known for their riveting live performances. Footage of the band performing „Cornelius Itchybah” from the Jagermeister stage at this past Festival can be seen HERE.
