Do I need to introduce Lightning Bolt? Probably not. Or maybe just a little bit, in case you don’t know them. Well, then, here are the basics: Lightning Bolt are two guys from Providence, Rhode Island. They have been around… Continue Reading →

Anneke van Giersbergen with Residentie Orkest The Hague – Symphonized (Inside Out)

Anneke van Giersbergen is something of an enigma having constantly evolved her style over the years amassing an impressive back catalogue of work during her tenures with The Gathering, Agua de Annique, The Gentle Storm, Vuur and of course her… Continue Reading →

Haken – L-1VE (DVD) (Inside Out Music)

I confess that I’m not an avid watcher of DVDs, but this one sparked my interest. I’ve followed Haken since their first Album “Aquarius” (2010), and seen them twice at ProgPower Europe and umpteen times in London, so I guess… Continue Reading →

Venom Inc. – London Islington Academy 13/3/18

Being a bit older, a bit more jaded and a bit more in need of my bed these days, it’s been a while since I’ve been to a gig that has made be feel as great as this one did…. Continue Reading →

Xandria, Metaprism, Aonia – Sheffield Local Authority 18/11/17

It’s fair to say that it has been a tumultuous few months for Xandria, and all credit must go to the band that this tour even went ahead with front woman Dianne van Giersbergen having announced that she was leaving… Continue Reading →

Dimmu Borgir – Forces of the Northern Night (Nuclear Blast)

Stream Of Passion, Pythia – London Underworld 13/10/16

And here it is, the final curtain. The news that Stream Of Passion were calling it a day came as a big and not very pleasant surprise. They want to move on and explore other musical endeavours apparently and lead… Continue Reading →

SubRosa, Darkher, smallman, Sumer – London The Underworld 11/10/16

It’s day 19 of SubRosa’s 22 date European tour and tonight the Salt Lake City quintet are hitting up Camden’s Underworld. SÜMER open the show and the local lads provide the perfect display of prog rock meets post metal. Three… Continue Reading →

Weedeater, Conan, Lo!, Thorax – Sydney University Manning Bar, 15/7/16

Ave Noctum travels far afield for this live one; all the way to my place of birth in fact – Sydney, Australia. Manning Bar at Sydney Uni is a brilliant venue and the perfect place to spend a Friday evening… Continue Reading →

Anthrax – Den Atelier, Luxembourg 09/06/16

Thanks to the advertised start time of 9:30 for tonight’s gig, I arrived too late to catch local talent Scarlet Anger (their sophomore album reviewed here some time back). On the bright side, this obviously meant that there wasn’t much… Continue Reading →

Mutoid Waste Company – Punkx – London Granary Square 4/6/16
