Mayhem, Gaahl’s Wyrd & GosT – London Electric Ballroom 4/11/19

You have to wonder if we would have been here if history had been different, if Varg had not killed Euronymous and Necrobutcher had instead (he was going to you know)? Here we are though, just after the release of… Continue Reading →

Moonspell, Rotting Christ, Silver Dust – London Islington Assembly Hall 29/9/19

It was expected that this was just a two-band tour with Moonspell and Rotting Christ co-headlining but just before the show I discovered there was an unknown quantity or an extra item in the baggage area. This turned out to… Continue Reading →

Golden Legacy – II (S/R)

Blimey I thought I had been transported back in time to a John Peel radio session from the mid-80’s on first giving this a listen. Talk about the most girlie vocals I have heard in many a year. Sugar coated,… Continue Reading →

Grim Reaper, Toledo Steel and Blizzen – London Boston Music Rooms 12/10/19

Toledo Steel and Blizzen were due to play down the road in Camden, but were added to this package. Desolation Angels pulled out for reasons unknown a week or so prior to the event and Salem UK (of which this… Continue Reading →

Cold In Berlin – Rituals Of Surrender (New Heavy Sounds)

Some bands have a special quality. Maybe it’s a unique sound or look while for others it might simply be an aura. For some years I’ve been intrigued by Cold In Berlin after seeing them at Candlefest in London’s Underworld… Continue Reading →

Imperium Dekadenz, Agrona & Stahlsarg – London Black Heart 11/10/19

I doubt I am the only person who has been patiently waiting for atmospheric Bavarian black metal troop Imperium Dekadenz to make it over to the UK. Finally they have, to play 2 shows, this and Atmosfest in Nottingham. That’s… Continue Reading →

Ufomammut, Monolord, Morag Tong – London The Garage 28/9/19

Everyone moans about an early curfew at a gig, when deep down they’re glad they’ll be home in time to watch Family Guy and fast asleep by midnight – that’s looking to be the case this evening, until Desertscene announce… Continue Reading →

Toledo Steel, Speed Queen & Skyryder – London Black Heart 14/9/19

Featuring two of the UK’s premier metal talents and upcoming Belgium speed metal merchants, this is quite a low attended event, especially perplexing as it’s a prime Saturday slot. Although the last night of the Big Red venue might have… Continue Reading →

Wiegedood – London Boston Arms 5/9/19

If you absolutely love an album what better way is there than seeing it performed live and in its entirety? This is a way bands and artists have embraced fully in the last decade or so and it is a… Continue Reading →

T.W.A.T – Ride My Dick (Affair Records)

Good god. Where the fuck to start with this? Formed of some of South London’s most renowned locals, you can probably already guess that this was recorded at the Cro’s Nest, ‘Ride My Dick’ is the debut album from powerviolence… Continue Reading →

Ministry, 3Teeth & Grave Lines – London Shepherds Bush Empire 6/7/19

It’s a busy day event wise. The majority of people had gone to the fireworks display that is Rammstein in Milton Keynes and many were moaning that Ministry were not on that bill. Quite honestly I’m glad they weren’t and… Continue Reading →

Damim – A Fine Game Of Nil (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Can I say this is the debut by Damim to make it sound like I’m here, in at the beginning? Nah, ’tis their third after a slight name shift from Dam (I assume for reasons of clashes, lineup rejig or… Continue Reading →
