1980s Metal is back in full force! A rare opportunity to see 3 bands from the golden age of Metal at a venue synonymous with the NWOBHM.
MARQUIS DE SADE
Marquis de Sade was formed in London in 1980 and during the next 2 years, they recorded the legendary ‘Somewhere Up In The Mountains’ single and toured relentlessly. The band reunited in 2019 and in August 2023 released the album “Chapter II” via Germany-based label Golden Core Records. “Chapter II” was received with widespread critical acclaim and fused NWOBHM, Prog Rock and Doom. At the Cart & Horses, Marquis de Sade will be unveiling some brand new material in addition to songs from “Chapter II” and their classic repertoire.
Bengal Tigers will be coming all the way from Australia for their first-ever UK shows since the band's formation back in 1979. The music of Bengal Tigers is armed with catchy riffs and laden with hooks and their stage-act is backed by decades of experience.
Overdrive are unsung heroes of the NWOBHM and their music perfectly encapsulates classic British Metal in its full glory. The band was formed in Lincolnshire in 1980 and features founding member and guitarist Tracey Abbot (Abbottoire, ex-English Dogs). Overdrive’s repertoire boasts 5 albums, from which the band is expected to select the strongest material for this show.
