Following their album launch PROKOP are putting on a show at Nighthawks that is promising a riot of vibrance and heavy music you won’t just be watching a performance you’ll be a part of it breathing the tapestry of light and sound.

PROKOP – a symphonic fusion of gritty sound and soaring vocals, galvanized by the sonorous rhythms of Doom Metal, has captivated audiences across the city. PROKOP’s debut 2022 album, Gorse, explores the concept of opposites in a distorted metropolis. It is an emotionally intense and sometimes surreal soundscape that offers honest glimpses of human fragility. The album showcases the band’s unique sound, which draws on a wide range of influences from Doom Metal to industrial and beyond.

Ashbel – influenced by Japanese hardcore, black metal to Jazz avant-garde. Their album Deluge from 2020 was conceived as a cathartic raw expression of escaping from trauma and it’s escorts of various malaise.

Ambur – Hailing from the industrial west of Naarm, Ambur blend Australiana noise punk with heavy shoegaze, brimming with chaotic and absurdist extroversion. Driven by their unusual instrumentation of electric violin, modulated bass, sonic lops and drums.
