Live gig reviews

Myrkur & Jo Quail – Manchester Gorilla 22/12/18

My final gig of the year couldn’t have been better, an intimate night of sumptuous musicality in the company of two of the finest proponents of soulful, ambient and passionately intense performances even though headliner Myrkur did a black metal… Continue Reading →

Loch, Soft, Crack Guilty, Seriate and Satyagraha – The Soundmaker Studio, George Town, Penang, Malaysia 22/12/18

This was a journey into the unknown for me. Of the bands playing here tonight, I confess I didn’t any of them before tonight. It was two members of Weot Skam, who were supposed to be playing, who gave me… Continue Reading →

Sólstafir, Telepathy & Talons – Manchester Deaf Institute 19/12/18

As usual, the run up to Christmas is packed with gigs and on this particular evening, most of the crowd I usually go with chose to go for an aural battering courtesy of Revocation, Archspire et al at Manchester’s Rebellion,… Continue Reading →

Kreator, Dimmu Borgir, Hatebreed, Bloodbath – London The Roundhouse – 16/12/18

Great thing about a gig starting early on a Sunday is that you can actually get there in good time and watch the first band. As the lights dimmed and the intro tape started playing, Bloodbath wandered on stage shrouded… Continue Reading →

Abigail Williams, The Infernal Sea, Martyrium – Sheffield, The Mulberry Bar 9/12/18

Originally this gig was planned as an all dayer, according to the flyer, but eventually turned out to be a three band event held at a bar near the Sheffield Academy. Thankfully with the gig taking place on a Sunday… Continue Reading →

Exodus, Sodom, Death Angel – London Electric Ballroom 6/12/18

I’m kinda annoyed that I missed Suicidal Angels, as I was looking forward to getting to see them. Granted I only have ‘Bloodbath’, so their set would have been mostly unfamiliar material, but from the roar of approval they got… Continue Reading →

Furia, Au Dessus & Solleme – London Nambucca 6/12/18

Plenty of gigs on in town yet again tonight, heavyweight thrash titans Exodus with Sodom and Death Angel having a Headbangers Ball as well as memories being invoked by Clawfinger. It’s off down the Holloway Road for us black clad… Continue Reading →

Aborted & Cryptopsy – Manchester Rebellion 1/12/18

Due to the gridlocked, stagnant traffic through Manchester City Centre, possibly due to the Manchester City post-match traffic, or even just festive commuters, it took me 95 minutes to travel the last 4 miles to the venue, thus missing Unfathomable… Continue Reading →

Zeal & Ardor + Blanket – London Electric Ballroom 2/12/18

As we hit December silly season commences and for the next couple of weeks there are multiple shows on practically every night and we aint talking pantomimes. Round the corner Terror and assorted crews are tearing The Underworld a new… Continue Reading →

Wardruna – Manchester Albert Hall 21/11/18

Wardruna originally formed in 2003 and between 2009 and 2016 released the ‘Runaljod’ trilogy to ever increasing critical acclaim, using traditional Nordic instruments and poetic metres to support whispering voices, chants and choral pieces creating rich musical landscapes. It goes… Continue Reading →

The Ocean & Rosetta – Zagreb, Mochvara 17/11/18

Zagreb’s Mochvara had already filled up nicely when Rosetta started their show right at the announced time, or maybe five minutes later. It was bloody cold outside and nobody fancied drinking their beer on the club’s windy terrace. Rosetta certainly… Continue Reading →

Therapy? – Manchester Gorilla 16/11/18

As I scale the steps leading into Manchester’s Gorilla, I am met with a wall of black clad backs and as I peer over the shoulders of the gathered masses, it’s clear to see that there isn’t an inch to… Continue Reading →
