Live gig reviews

Dodheimsgard, Bölzer, Blaze Of Perdition, Matterhorn – London Underworld 10/12/19

The Void Dancers MMXIX Tour swings into London on a cold, wet and miserable Tuesday night and I was not sure how well attended it was going to be with so much happening including Taake at this very venue in… Continue Reading →

Leaves Eyes, Sirenia, Forever Still – Manchester Bread Shed 28/11/18

The dreaded curse of the M62 morphed my usual 50 minute transition across the Pennines into a colossal 3 hour trip and subsequently ensured I missed the first 2 bands on the Female Metal Voices touring package. News also started… Continue Reading →

Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy & Hypocrisy – Manchester Apollo 29/11/19

The Vikings had landed, and they had brought some uber guests with them in the guise of Arch Enemy and Hypocrisy. On my arrival, security informed me that the gig was sold out and this was obviously evident by the… Continue Reading →

Sacred Reich & Night Demon – London The Underworld 27/11/19

With doors opening at 7, and me not wanting to miss anything, I actually arrived on time, only to discover that Night Demon, who were first up, were only starting at 8.15 thereby giving me an hour to grab a… Continue Reading →

Immolation, Ragnarok, Monument Of Misanthropy, Embryo – Manchester Rebellion Bar 21/11/19

Looking at this four artist line up one becomes instantly aware of how diverse the whole evening was going to be and indeed that is exactly what we got as the bands went from symphonic death metal to old school… Continue Reading →

Lacuna Coil, Eluveitie & Infected Rain – Manchester Ritz 12/11/19

It’s a long time since I’ve seen a queue as long as the one I was met with tonight, full of visibly excited black clad figures, all eager to enter the venue to witness a masterclass in metal which was… Continue Reading →

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 →
