Live gig reviews

ProgPower 2019 – JC Sjiwa club, Baarlo, Netherlands 4/10/19

Introduction and Friday 4th October The organisers at ProgPower Europe excelled themselves this year. They achieved a great mix of known and unknown bands. There are fresh new bands and grizzly old bands, but nobody as old as me of… Continue Reading →

Imperium Dekadenz, Agrona & Stahlsarg – London Black Heart 11/10/19

I doubt I am the only person who has been patiently waiting for atmospheric Bavarian black metal troop Imperium Dekadenz to make it over to the UK. Finally they have, to play 2 shows, this and Atmosfest in Nottingham. That’s… Continue Reading →

Exhorder, The Bleeding, Blasphemer – London Underworld – 7/10/19

The first thing I noticed when I walked down into the bowels of the venue was the new on-slip, soft vinyl flooring that is now covering the hard wood floor. I guess truly gone are the days when you would… Continue Reading →

Ufomammut, Monolord, Morag Tong – London The Garage 28/9/19

Everyone moans about an early curfew at a gig, when deep down they’re glad they’ll be home in time to watch Family Guy and fast asleep by midnight – that’s looking to be the case this evening, until Desertscene announce… Continue Reading →

Toledo Steel, Speed Queen & Skyryder – London Black Heart 14/9/19

Featuring two of the UK’s premier metal talents and upcoming Belgium speed metal merchants, this is quite a low attended event, especially perplexing as it’s a prime Saturday slot. Although the last night of the Big Red venue might have… Continue Reading →

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 →
