Enthroned, Schammasch, Caronte, Argesk – Manchester Rebellion 7/1/20

  This gig had been in my diary for months and I was really looking forward to another opportunity to experience Der Weg Einer Freiheit in the live arena. When the undercard was announced it further added to my anticipation,… Continue Reading →

Taake, Wode & The Infernal Sea – London Underworld 12/12/19

As the country and the weather goes to hell in a handcart it’s a relief to get into The Underworld this evening and take refuge from it all for a few hours. Taake are back and are one of the… Continue Reading →

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

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

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 →
