Played at Graspop Metal Meeting 2017



United Kingdom


Both of Bruce Dickinson’s sons have followed in their father’s footsteps as the lead singer for a metal band. One is As Lions, the other is Shvpes. Risen from the ashes of post-hardcore rebels Cytota, this melodic metalcore outfit has just released a promising first full-length offering, ‘Pain. Joy. Ecstacy. Despair.’. Lead singer Griffin Dickinson & mates have put out a solid mix of post-hardcore and alternative rock that has struck a chord with fans and critics alike. They’re touring as an opener for Trivium next year so you can get a taste of Shvpes in the run-up to the festival. If you’re into Papa Roach, Rise to Remain and BfMV, chances are Shvpes will be right up your alley. (#GMM17)
