Joining forces with our friends Planetmosh, EHT Promotions have a plethora of fantastic Irish metal on the menu for this Saturday August 27th with admission only €10.00 on the door. Please note that there are not advance tickets, so it’s best to get there early to avoid disappointment.

Headlining the 2016 Unleashed Festival is non-other than Irish death metal up-starts, Warpath, who have been busy working on their highly anticipated The Ambiance of War album later this year. Check out the killer artwork below.


Joining WARPATH on the bill will be TWO TALES OF WOE, who have just returned from a triumphant performance at this years Bloodstock Open Air Festival thanks to their taking part in the Official Irish Metal 2 The Masses earlier this year.
