Crowhurst, Caïna, Warren Schoenbright, Knifedoutofexistence – London New River Studios 6/5/16

Set within the relatively hipster ambience of Harringay, New River Studios deceptively masquerades as a warehouse space for beers and coffee and is free reign to the two resident cats. Set deep within the back – waaaay into the back… Continue Reading →

Therapy? – Spa Pavilion – Whitby Goth Weekend 22/4/16

Having been a punter (and occasional DJ) at the legendary Whitby Goth Weekend since 2007, Therapy?’s inclusion on the bill this April came as a bit of a surprise. Certainly one of the “bravest” moves from the organizers for quite… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival – Day 1 Oslo, Norway 23/3/16

Death to Cancer Fest – London Black Heart 30/1/16

After the tragic taking of some of music and cinemas greatest legends last month due to that despicable shit of a disease that is Cancer, it seems only fitting that the UK’s brutal death community do their fair share at… Continue Reading →

Latitudes, Telepathy, P S O T Y – London The Black Heart 5/2/16

It’s been a little over a year since Chaos Theory last put Latitudes on at the Black Heart as part of their five year anniversary celebrations, so it seems only fitting to bring the Hertfordshire five back to promote the… Continue Reading →

The King is Blind, Shrines, Obscene Entity – London Black Heart 31/1/16

East Anglian heavyweights The King Is Blind make no secret of their love for the founding fathers of UK extreme metal and with that in mind, its fitting that this Sunday showcase at Camden’s Black Heart venue is redolent of… Continue Reading →

The Black Dahlia Murder, Benighted, Ingested Manchester, Sound Control 21/1/16

The conscious decision to catch this tour in Manchester rather than Leeds was partly down to the inclusion of Ingested on the bill but also because I don’t particularly like the venue that this was to play in Leeds. A… Continue Reading →

One-man industrial doom metal act, Author & Punisher, hit the The Underworld on a suitably foggy Wednesday night, bringing France’s Treha Sektori and local lads, Shitwife, into the mix of the second evening of a 16-date European tour. Original opening… Continue Reading →
