FURNESS death metal band Repulsive Vision will be launching their debut album with a live show this week.

Six years after forming, and various line-up changes later, the highly-rated outfit release their first record, which will be followed by a string of UK shows and even an appearance at this summer's Las Vegas Death Fest.
While it was actually recorded 18 months ago, with much of the time since having been spent on securing the right label backing and promotion, guitarist Matt Davidson, frontman Dan McEwan, bassist Mark Kirby, and drummer Gary Young have been working on material for their follow-up album. Expect some brand-new tracks to feature in Friday's live set.
Female-fronted doom outfit Witch Charmer return to the town as main support, having previously played headline sets and made an appearance at Funeral Fest. The Sunderland-based outfit are working on a follow-up to their 2014 effort,, which was highly praised on its release.
Also heading over from the North East for the show are Live Burial - another old school death metal act, this will be their first appearance in the region.
Barrow melodic metal outfit Eternal Autumn, who formed last year, will also be playing through their original material to round out the bill.
Doors open from 6pm, and entrance is payable on the night.
