Kassad – Faces Turn Away (Hypnotic Dirge)

Kassad – Faces Turn Away (Hypnotic Dirge)

At last some proper grown up black metal from the UK. No clown-shoes and corpse paint in evidence here and it’s a welcome relief as I seem to have been hearing too much of that sort of stuff lately. It’s like the old teenagers in.. Read More

Prong, Spoil Engine & Hark – London Underworld 22/7/17

I have missed Prong the last few times they have played London due to clashes but on the strength of cracking new album Zero Days nothing was going to prevent me from seeing them tonight. Filtering in out of the summer rain, 1st up tonight.. Read More
Poseidon – Prologue  (Ripple Music)

Poseidon – Prologue (Ripple Music)

If you’re not yet familiar with Poseidon, then I think it is time you changed that, and ‘Prologue’ may well be the album to help you. Developing from the single track ‘Omega’ that was released over a year ago, the band have clearly been away,.. Read More

Voivod & Necrophagia – London The Underworld 18/6/17

Doors are delayed as Nuclear who are meant to be on first tonight are MIA, it appears the Chilean thrashers are delayed at border control. So after much drinking time we stumble into the Underworld relieved to get out the baking heat and hug the.. Read More

Gurt, Limb, Temple Of Lies, Oak – London, Black Heart 13/6/17

You’re familiar with those nights when you go to a gig and there’s a confidence that there will be no let downs? Maybe it’s a combination of being absolutely jacked up for the bands or the assured knowledge that you know they will actually deliver... Read More
Nifelheim, Craven Idol & Funeral Throne – London Underworld 26/5/17

Nifelheim, Craven Idol & Funeral Throne – London Underworld 26/5/17

There’s a bit of a back-story to this show. If you were not aware the Bröderna Hårdrock Gustavsson bros from Nifelheim are Iron Maiden fans and that’s putting it mildly. They are what you can only describe as absolutely fanatical on the British HM institution.. Read More

Batushka & Noctem – London, The Dome 22/5/17

If you have dreams of upstaging a fast growing phenomenon like Batushka, you’ll need to come up with something good. So probably best to plug your fingers into the nearest demonic power socket, aim yourself roughly in the direction of the stage and grimace your.. Read More

Riverside London Islington Assembly Hall 22/5/17

Riverside were without support. They don’t need support. They weren’t alone either. Their reputation goes before them, so a good sized crowd of all ages convened downstairs and upstairs at the Islington Assembly Hall, breaking the recent trend of low turnouts for prog bands in.. Read More

Ex People – Bird  (New Heavy Sounds)

Ex People – Bird (New Heavy Sounds)

It’s always good to hear new music, and equally good to hear a band that is a bit different and willing to walk their own path, something that Ex People are happy to do with their first full length release ‘Bird’. The LP starts of.. Read More
Wolverine, Oddland and Until Rain - London Garage 27/4/17

Wolverine, Oddland and Until Rain – London Garage 27/4/17

There’s a form I sometimes have to fill in which has three categories: preparation time, travel time and time to deliver the activity. Quite apart from the fact that in my old eyes you deliver coal or milk, not activity, one thing I always appreciate.. Read More
