Warhorns Festival – Eggborough Sports & Social Club 22/9/18 Part 3

Interlude: There were real timing issues On Saturday but so you know from the outset this is the real tale, most I knew on the day (I asked) but the rest was direct from Glyn a few days after. And let’s be honest by the.. Read More

Warhorns Festival – Eggborough Sports & Social Club 21/9/18 Part 2

Well bugger me it was almost sunny the next day! It appeared most people had survived the night by the time we had picked up our passengers and arrived, and also that more than the odd hangover was being nursed. We also had two brilliant.. Read More

Warhorns Festival – Eggborough Sports & Social Club 20/9/18 Part 1

It’s that time again. Warhorns. A time of mead, music and a smorgasbord of death, black, viking and folk metal. A festival with the mission to bring us bands who rarely if ever play the UK along with great UK bands that range from stalwarts.. Read More

Winterfylleth, Meus, Wolcensmen – London St Pancras Old Church 24/9/18

It’s not often we get an invite to church, certainly not from a band known (mainly) for playing black metal. Winterfylleth are not about any form of satanic shtick though and as latest acoustic album The Hallowing Of Heirdom has further proven they are all.. Read More

Lvmen, Tomáš Palucha, Emphasis – Zagreb, Mochvara and Čakovec, Prostor 13-14/9/18

Lvmen are not about the light, as one might think. They’re probably rather about the lack thereof. They are not Born Again Christians (thank God) and not to be confused with a Russian rock band with a similar name. Although you’ve probably never heard of.. Read More

Neuroma, Cognitive, Foetal Juice, BTK, Colpocleisis, Exhumation – Liverpool Maguires 01/09/18

Up and down the country, you hear the same story: venues are closing down and local music scenes are at times, struggling to keep going. In Liverpool, we have lost some great venues which had a rich history and to be honest, things are looking.. Read More

Dying Fetus, Carnifex, Toxic Holocaust, Goatwhore – Manchester, Club Academy 14/8/18

As the festival season draws to a close for many this quadruple American assault spanning four genres was nothing short of aural Armageddon as every band was apocalyptic in the delivery of their music that began with the blasphemic annihilation of Goatwhore. Opening with “Baring.. Read More

Zeal And Ardor & Schammasch – London Village Underground 4/6/18

It’s a trip that’s a bit out the comfort zone tonight to hip Shoreditch where beards, vaping and craft beer rule supreme. Interesting to sit outside the venue once it has been found and watch street artists at work and it’s not long before a.. Read More
