Metallica, Ghost and Bokassa – Twickenham Stadium 20/6/19

Ave Noctum is primarily for underground extreme music, and I wasn’t even sure whether our esteemed editor would want a review of Metallica but with his arm high up his back he agreed….Those of you that have got this far… Continue Reading →

Vltimas, Fen & De Profundis – London Underworld 21/6/19

There has been plenty to entertain today and firstly we are all amused no end of a certain band of wimps and posers crying and throwing toys out of prams in France. There’s plenty more excitement from those on the… Continue Reading →

Labirinto & Tangled Thoughts of Leaving – Ljubljana, Slovenia, Channel Zero 25/5/19

Australians Tangled Thoughts of Leaving released with No Tether one of my favourite albums of 2018, therefore I had to go and see them on their European tour. Ljubljana, Slovenia, was the closest show to where I live, so that’s… Continue Reading →

Christian Death, Darkcell & The Creeping Terrors – London Underworld 25/5/19

Always a pleasure to have Christian Death in town and fair play to the cult American act they always seem to manage to stop off in London for a visit. Things had not started well for them though and one… Continue Reading →

ManorFest – Keighley, Victoria Hall 18/5/19

OK apologies in advance. It was a late decision to review this brought on by the bloody hard work I saw going on so I did no prep and setlists were hard to come by. But such a good day… Continue Reading →

Samael & Hangman’s Chair – London Underworld 14/5/19

It’s not that often you find yourself at a show with just the one support band and no local acts cluttering up the bill. In a way it makes a refreshing change and by 8PM when things start everyone has… Continue Reading →

Helheim, Vulture Industries, Madder Mortem & Caelestia – London Unicorn 1/5/19

It was a bit of a surprise seeing this gig shifted from the much bigger Underworld to The Unicorn up the hill in Camden. Ticket sales do dictate and normally this show would have seen many more attending but with… Continue Reading →

Morbidfest – I Am Morbid, Vital Remains, Atrocity, Sadist Manchester Rebellion 30/4/19

An evening of brutal death metal was on the cards tonight, and with a bill boasting 5 bands the doors to the Rebellion had opened amidst glorious sunshine to welcome the early birds to the bludgeoning that is no doubt… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day Four – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 21/4/19

The final day of a festival is always bittersweet with a whole day of great bands left, but also knowing that when it is done, it is back to the grind of normal life. However, I was determined to enjoy… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day Three – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 20/4/19

Having cleared the hangover with a big breakfast, I made my annual trip to the infamous Neseblod store. I have written about this in previous years’ reviews so won’t go into detail except to say that Neseblod has a huge place in… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day Two – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 19/4/19

My second day of Inferno started with a trip to the Kniven bar at 1430 for Psykopath and Sepulcher who were playing during the afternoon prior to the main festival. I made my way to the venue and descended the… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day One – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 18/4/19

Having been suitably warmed up by the Indie Recordings Label Night, I could not wait for the main festival to get underway. As I’m sure most of you know, Inferno Metal Festival is a four day event that takes place… Continue Reading →
