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 →

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 →

The Deep – Watching You (S/R)

The Deep came out with a fantastic debut release a while back, since then there’s been a terrific selection of live shows and each time I see this band I am reminded of how great a band they really are…. Continue Reading →

Mystifier, Solstice, Craven Idol & Sufferer – London Boston Arms 2/11/18

With many tootling off up the M1 to Leeds and Damnation Festival this weekend I had to wonder how busy this show was going to be. Fear not, London has come out and there are already a fair few in… Continue Reading →

Temples on Mars – S/T (Primordial Records)

My first encounter with London-based Temples on Mars was at ProgPower Europe this year. I learned that this London-based band was previously called Agent, hardly a stand-out name, and this is effectively a re-launch. After the band’s entertaining heavy melodic… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth, Meus, Wolcensmen – London St Pancras Old Church 24/9/18

It’s not often we get an invite to church, certainly not from a band known (mainly) for playing black metal. Winterfylleth are not about any form of satanic shtick though and as latest acoustic album The Hallowing Of Heirdom has… Continue Reading →

Butcher In The Fog – A Screaming Reflection (Sleight Of Hand Music)

London trio Butcher In The Fog are a many headed beast. Taking elements of hardcore punk and throwing in helpings of head banging thrash with a touch of old fashioned doom metal, there’s something in there for everyone. I caught… Continue Reading →

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters – Come & Chutney (Riff Rock Records)

In the world of the badger faced extreme metallers, there seems to be a competition to have the most indecipherable logo, doubtless to match their equally indecipherable hell screamed lyrics. Enter the world of the Iommi worshipping Doom community, and… Continue Reading →

The Heretic Order – Evil Rising (Massacre Records)

What has Heavy Metal become, as in real Heavy Metal. In some instances it has gone down the path of the ultra trve following the trails blazed by the likes of Tokyo Blade, Tygers Of Pan Tang and Praying Mantis…. Continue Reading →

Zeal And Ardor & Schammasch – London Village Underground 4/6/18

It’s a trip that’s a bit out the comfort zone tonight to hip Shoreditch where beards, vaping and craft beer rule supreme. Interesting to sit outside the venue once it has been found and watch street artists at work and… Continue Reading →

Marduk, Ragnarok, Unlight & Azziard – London Dome 25/5/18

There’s been a certain amount of controversy following the English dates of this tour which has seen Polish band Infernal War’s somewhat questionable past catching up with them and them being outed from several shows. This sort of behaviour seems… Continue Reading →
