Live gig reviews

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 →

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 →
