Death The Leveller – II (Cruz Del Sur)

Pallbearer – Foundations of Burden (Profound Lore)

You know there’s something truly special about a band when they have universal appeal; when Pallbearer released ‘Sorrow and Extinction’ back in 2012 they captured the hearts of not just doom aficionados, but music lovers the world over. ‘Sorrow and… Continue Reading →

Damnation Festival – Leeds University 3/11/12

Scroll down to bottom of review for photos!  The annual Damnation Festival held in Leeds is, I think it is fair to say, the biggest indoor metal event in the North of England. Every year it sees a huge crowd… Continue Reading →
