A Pale Horse Named Death, (OHHMS), Petrichor, Mairu – Liverpool, PHASE One 4/11/19

It’s the day before bonfire night and as you would expect, it’s dark out, there are bangs going off everywhere and some bellend throws a firecracker out the car window at the bus stop we were waiting at before we… Continue Reading →

Cattle Decapitation, Osiah & Old Wharf – The Bread Shed Manchester 01/11/19

  Coming from sleepy Suffolk the north is like some sort of mythical land. Although that said I do have a good friend up there whom I visit when I can, normally for gigs and general drinking frivolity. In an… Continue Reading →

Mayhem, Gaahl’s Wyrd & GosT – London Electric Ballroom 4/11/19

You have to wonder if we would have been here if history had been different, if Varg had not killed Euronymous and Necrobutcher had instead (he was going to you know)? Here we are though, just after the release of… Continue Reading →

Moonspell, Rotting Christ, Silver Dust – London Islington Assembly Hall 29/9/19

It was expected that this was just a two-band tour with Moonspell and Rotting Christ co-headlining but just before the show I discovered there was an unknown quantity or an extra item in the baggage area. This turned out to… Continue Reading →

Cradle of Filth, Amazonica – London Palladium 19/10/19

I came to London for a 3 week vacation in June 1998 with a couple good friends and plans to see as many bands as we could during that time. The 3 of us weren’t really convinced about being dragged… Continue Reading →

Ultha & White Ward – Zagreb, Mochvara, 14/10/2019

Although Monday is not a good day for a show, with the weekend just behind you and a whole week of getting up early before you, quite a few people decided that seeing White Ward and Ultha play at Zagreb’s… Continue Reading →

Grim Reaper, Toledo Steel and Blizzen – London Boston Music Rooms 12/10/19

Toledo Steel and Blizzen were due to play down the road in Camden, but were added to this package. Desolation Angels pulled out for reasons unknown a week or so prior to the event and Salem UK (of which this… Continue Reading →

AoniaFest – Sheffield Corporation 5/10/19

As the Corporation came into view a modest but enthusiastic crowd could be seen lining the wall, stemming from the disappointingly closed doors, most of the characters sporting shirts representing the symphonic world, some even choosing to don shirts highlighting… Continue Reading →

ProgPower 2019 – JC Sjiwa club, Baarlo, Netherlands 6/10/19

Sunday 6th October With torrential rain outside, the best place to be was the JC Sjiwa club where Lost in Thought opened up proceedings on the Sunday. The crowd clapped from the outset. The band chose to play their latest… Continue Reading →

ProgPower 2019 – JC Sjiwa club, Baarlo, Netherlands 5/10/19

Saturday 5th October Saturday came, and the first band on was Scarlet Stories from the host country. Experiencing these prog bands from the Netherlands, of whom there are many and really good ones at that, is for me one of… Continue Reading →

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 →
