Old Corpse Road, Stahlsarg, Mountains Crave – Leeds, The Fenton 30/7/17

This triple bill of black metal covered a wide spectrum within the genre that began with local act Mountains Crave who have made huge improvements musically since I last saw them converting their wealth of live experience into this accomplished show. The cramped stage at.. Read More

Prong, Spoil Engine & Hark – London Underworld 22/7/17

I have missed Prong the last few times they have played London due to clashes but on the strength of cracking new album Zero Days nothing was going to prevent me from seeing them tonight. Filtering in out of the summer rain, 1st up tonight.. Read More

Blue Oyster Cult: 45th Anniversary Tour - Manchester Academy 25-06-17

Blue Oyster Cult: 45th Anniversary Tour – Manchester Academy 25-06-17

I have two lists of bands I would like to get round to seeing. One is the ‘Bands to see before I die’, the other is ‘Bands to see before THEY die’… Morbid and inappropriate? Maybe… BUT the fact remains, there are some bands who.. Read More
Download Festival 2017 - Donington Park 11/6/17

Download Festival 2017 – Donington Park 11/6/17

Sunday 11th June 2017 review only. Download is always a marmite festival for me, it either has loads on offer to draw my interest, or it is a weekend, I will happily swerve at a blink of an eye. While this year has intermittent gems.. Read More

Voivod & Necrophagia – London The Underworld 18/6/17

Doors are delayed as Nuclear who are meant to be on first tonight are MIA, it appears the Chilean thrashers are delayed at border control. So after much drinking time we stumble into the Underworld relieved to get out the baking heat and hug the.. Read More

Gurt, Limb, Temple Of Lies, Oak – London, Black Heart 13/6/17

You’re familiar with those nights when you go to a gig and there’s a confidence that there will be no let downs? Maybe it’s a combination of being absolutely jacked up for the bands or the assured knowledge that you know they will actually deliver... Read More
Nifelheim, Craven Idol & Funeral Throne – London Underworld 26/5/17

Nifelheim, Craven Idol & Funeral Throne – London Underworld 26/5/17

There’s a bit of a back-story to this show. If you were not aware the Bröderna Hårdrock Gustavsson bros from Nifelheim are Iron Maiden fans and that’s putting it mildly. They are what you can only describe as absolutely fanatical on the British HM institution.. Read More
Batushka & Noctem – London, The Dome 22/5/17

Batushka & Noctem – London, The Dome 22/5/17

If you have dreams of upstaging a fast growing phenomenon like Batushka, you’ll need to come up with something good. So probably best to plug your fingers into the nearest demonic power socket, aim yourself roughly in the direction of the stage and grimace your.. Read More
Riverside London Islington Assembly Hall 22/5/17

Riverside London Islington Assembly Hall 22/5/17

Riverside were without support. They don’t need support. They weren’t alone either. Their reputation goes before them, so a good sized crowd of all ages convened downstairs and upstairs at the Islington Assembly Hall, breaking the recent trend of low turnouts for prog bands in.. Read More
