Inferno Festival Day Two – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 19/4/19

My second day of Inferno started with a trip to the Kniven bar at 1430 for Psykopath and Sepulcher who were playing during the afternoon prior to the main festival. I made my way to the venue and descended the… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day One – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 18/4/19

Having been suitably warmed up by the Indie Recordings Label Night, I could not wait for the main festival to get underway. As I’m sure most of you know, Inferno Metal Festival is a four day event that takes place… Continue Reading →

Inferno Warm Up – Vaterland Oslo Norway 17/4/19

Inferno Metal Festival is one of my highlights of the year and this year the festivities were extended by a day as Indie Recordings ran a label night (as they did last year) the night before the festival started showcasing… Continue Reading →

Heilung, Seven That Spells, Messa – Roadburn Festival Tilburg Holland

Too little time, too many good bands to see! That about sums up the two days I spent at this year’s Roadburn festival. The three shows I’ve chosen to review might not look like the obvious choices, but taken together… Continue Reading →

Midnight, Hellripper, Aggressive Perfector & Heavy Sentence – London Dome 12/4/19

Time for a night of lust, filth, speed and sleaze and it is finally here, the return of Midnight, back in the UK for the second time and the first since Live Evil Festival back in 2012. They have tried… Continue Reading →

Skarlett Riot, Fahran, Sister Shotgun, Atomic Samurai – Sheffield Corporation 29/3/19

Friday night, four metal bands, no work the next day so a few ‘light!’ drinks for me was in order as this bill consisted of two established acts and two embryonic outfits hoping to garner new attention in a reasonably… Continue Reading →

Skyforger, Old Corpse Road, Cadence Noir – Manchester Rebellion 21/3/19

Manchester’s Rebellion venue is rapidly becoming something of a second home for me and on this occasion I trekked across the Pennines once more, this time to bear witness to Skyforger and their raid upon our fair shores. Unfortunately an… Continue Reading →

Kamelot, Evergrey, Visions of Atlantis – Manchester Club Academy 21/3/19

Tonight is a power metal fans dream come true, Kamelot, a massive enterprise in the aforementioned sub-genre, are rolling into Manchester, and tonight is just one of three dates of the UK leg of their current tour, and with a… Continue Reading →

A Pale Horse Named Death, Transport League, Alunah – London Bar Academy 22/3/19

I would have loved to have made the venue last night and can’t be the only person thinking that tonight’s headliners and Pist On would have made the perfect double header. I am sure I saw the latter share a… Continue Reading →

Overkill, Destruction, Flotsam and Jetsam – London Islington Academy 21/3/19

Owing to the venue’s policy to take a donation for an animal shelter for guest access, and only accepting cash in this digital age, I had to queue twice after being instructed to find the nearest ATM and come back… Continue Reading →

Haken, Vola, Bent Knee – London Islington Assembly Hall 16/3/19

The Islington Assembly Hall is a nice venue. Tonight there were plenty of people to enjoy it. Unfortunately the last time I was here was the same tragic night that a terrorist attack took place at the Manchester Arena. There… Continue Reading →

Gatekeeper + Sanhedrin – Arena Wien 13/3/19

Don’t you feel right at home and among your kind in the dodgy atmosphere of an underground club? With the stickers, the graffiti, and the smell of yesterday’s spilled beer? I do. I had never been to the Arena in… Continue Reading →
