Mgla – Zagreb Mochvara 6/9/19

With some honourable exceptions, black metal bands seem to be avoiding South-Eastern Europe. For no reason really, as the sold out Mgla show in Zagreb proves. There are clubs and individuals that are perfectly able to organize and promote the… Continue Reading →

Warhorns Festival – Rotherham The Trades 31/8/19

Day 2 Bugger. I mess up timings and so me and the rest of the Last Of The Summer Wine cast can’t stop for decent food at the one nice cafe we found. Although bizarrely someone bought a painting on… Continue Reading →

Warhorns Festival – Rotherham The Trades 30/8/19

Day 1  So here we are, once more; the Warhorns travelling carnival of chaos as the organisers themselves described it, rolls into another new venue after the sad demise of last year’s glorious venue at Eggborough power station. Truncated to… Continue Reading →

Wiegedood – London Boston Arms 5/9/19

If you absolutely love an album what better way is there than seeing it performed live and in its entirety? This is a way bands and artists have embraced fully in the last decade or so and it is a… Continue Reading →

Midgardsblot Metal Festival – Borre, Vestfold, Norway 17/8/19

Day 3  Saturday I already knew that the weather forecast was going to be dodgy as a storm had passed over the region during the night (I slept through it I might add) and left its raging remnants for me… Continue Reading →

Midgardsblot Metal Festival – Borre, Vestfold, Norway 16/8/19

Day 2 Friday  After the dowsing of rain the previous evening I was hoping for a drier clearer day but still packed up the waterproofs as I wasn’t going to tempt fate. With the bands not starting until mid-afternoon it… Continue Reading →

Midgardsblot Metal Festival – Borre, Vestfold, Norway 15/8/19

  Day 1 Thursday If you’re a regular reader of the site then you’ll know that this prestigious festival set within the Viking burial mounds of Borre National Park is as eclectic as it is addictive. This was the fifth… Continue Reading →

Sellsword, Dream Troll, Vice – The Fulford Arms, York 03/08/19

One of those nights: It’s hot and sunny and clammy outside all day so being sensible types a couple of hundred of us decide to jam ourselves into a sauna and jump about a lot. Sigh. Yep the signs were… Continue Reading →

Gruesome, Beyond Salvation, After The Abduction, Frozen In Shadows, Existential Dread – Manchester, Star And Garter 31/7/19

The older I get it is interesting to see how music and genres have evolved over time as tonight’s bill covered a range of death metal acts from traditional “old school” to the more modern slam style, and although these… Continue Reading →

Tramlines Fringe Festival 2019 – Sheffield City Hall Ballroom 20/7/19

As a subsidiary of Sheffield’s city wide Tramlines Festival that has been around for a number of years and which I have attended previously and seen some amazing acts like Myrkur, Amplifier, Anathema, The Pineapple Thief and Oathbreaker to name… Continue Reading →

Carach Angren, Wolfheart, Thy Antichrist, Nevalra – Manchester Rebellion 3/7/19

The Rebellion had a few of us puzzled tonight, the doors were advertised as 18.00, and to their credit, the doors did open amidst the blazing July sun, however, Facebook, and confirmations from inside the venue, did advise that the… Continue Reading →

Ministry, 3Teeth & Grave Lines – London Shepherds Bush Empire 6/7/19

It’s a busy day event wise. The majority of people had gone to the fireworks display that is Rammstein in Milton Keynes and many were moaning that Ministry were not on that bill. Quite honestly I’m glad they weren’t and… Continue Reading →
