The Black Map #32: No Great Loss from Belfast!

Continuing our journey across The Black Map of the UK Underground Metal Scene, we head across the pond to Belfast. The capital city of Northern Ireland was in 1800 a major port. By 1888, it was one of the largest ports in Europe specialising in Linen production, Tabacco processing and rope making and ship building. It was where the Titanic, arguably the World’s most famous ocean liner was built. Through the 1970s and 1980s, it was deemed one of the World’s most dangerous cities at the height of the troubles. Fast Forward to October 2015 Beatdown Downtempo Negative Hardcore quintet No Great Loss dropping their debut four track Demo including “Reality Hits Hard”. It’s simple and effective artwork – a line drawing of a coffin with a hangman’s noose inside it – is a simple and effective warning of the content. Just 3 months later the band recorded a live demo with the inverse image. The current release “Ethernal Sleep” is a huge step up and sees the band mark their name on our map.
