Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2014 / 2016




Collibus is the perfect example of how a local band from the Manchester underground scene can blossom into a universally praised and recognised act.

Their 2014 debut ‘The False Awakening’ met with rave reviews and their appearance at GMM2014 left us wanting for more. Queen’s Brian May calls Collibus a phenomenon whose scary musicianship is situated at the most furious end of the metal spectrum so check out what the fuss is about!
