Walpurgis Night Festival VII Galway, Bank Holiday Weekend Sunday May 6th 2018 @the Loft
The Wandering Midget – traditional doom metal band hailing all the way from Lappeenranta in Finland are a profound oddity. Formed in 2005 and first gaining international cult following with ‘I Am the Gate’ compilation in 2007 followed by the excellent ‘Serpent Coven’ and ‘From the Meadows of Opium Dreams’ more recently. Their sound is for true fans of old school doom metal taking reference from Black Sabbath and fellow Fins Reverend Bizarre. Top class songwriting and great singing defines the band. Elements of Epic Metal, NWOBHM touches of seventies rock , and heavy doom riffing, satisfies any ear for heavy music.
