Kreator, Sepultura, Soilwork, Aborted - London Forum 2/3/17

Kreator, Sepultura, Soilwork, Aborted – London Forum 2/3/17

I can’t recall an earlier start for a gig than 5:30PM start, but having the day off had made this significantly simpler to get in with plenty of time. I arrived to see the queue in its infancy, so decided to drift to the local.. Read More
Ghoul, Insanity Alert & Lunatic Hooker – London Underworld 1/3/17

Ghoul, Insanity Alert & Lunatic Hooker – London Underworld 1/3/17

There’s normally all sorts of ghoulish behaviour once the sun sets in Camden Town but tonight was going to be like none other and all manner of grizzly and gruesome things were about to happen in the Underworld. First we had a date with a.. Read More
Insomnium, Barren Earth & Wolfheart – London Islington Academy 18/1/17

Insomnium, Barren Earth & Wolfheart – London Islington Academy 18/1/17

Ok who stole the bastard pub? The Wetherspoons above the venue has vanished since I was last at the Islington Academy! Luckily there are others down the road and back at the Academy the queue is snaking right round the corner on this suitably frosty.. Read More

Celeste, Vampillia, Violent Magic Orchestra, Hemelbestormer, Izah – London Underworld 17/12/16

The last gig of the year at the Underworld sees 2016 out with a bang, with some of heaviest and craziest bands that post metal and avant-garde currently has to offer. Owing to car troubles, original openers Opium Lord are forced to pull out, leaving.. Read More
New Model Army, The Virginmarys and The Hyena Kill – London Forum 15/12/16

New Model Army, The Virginmarys and The Hyena Kill – London Forum 15/12/16

The annual New Model Army end of year show at the Forum is always a calendar event not to be missed. However that’s exactly what I did last year going to another gig down the road at The Dome. Good though that was, it kind.. Read More
Interview - Truckfighters

Interview – Truckfighters

Friday night in Angel and there’s a steady gathering at the Islington O2 ahead of the Truckfighters’ second last UK gig. I am escorted to their dressing room where I’m introduced to Niklas “Dango” Källgren, who is calmly noodling away on a shiny black Gibson.. Read More
Truckfighters, Deville,  Dot Legacy - London Islington Academy 9/12/16

Truckfighters, Deville, Dot Legacy – London Islington Academy 9/12/16

I only see a couple of songs from openers, Dot Legacy. Immediately, I’m struck by their energy in large doses from this French crew whose influences include tonight’s headliners. Thick riffs come flying, there’s guitarists leaping all over the stage…I think I’ll need to make.. Read More
This Is Endless – Inherit The Sin (S/R)

This Is Endless – Inherit The Sin (S/R)

There’s a time to listen to wafty shit, you know the stuff… something symphonic, something with keyboards, windy forest sound effects and probably a warbly singer whining on about whatever issue they’ve taken up on someone else’s behalf that day. Articles on these bands usually.. Read More
Shining, Taake and Slegest – London Underworld 4/12/16

Shining, Taake and Slegest – London Underworld 4/12/16

Although not a great idea slating some of our potential readership it has to be said that some so called “extreme music fans” are whiny ass bitches with a massive sense of self-entitlement and tonight just proved this. Firstly it shouldn’t have been any real.. Read More
Planet Of Zeus, Helhorse, Wicked Stone – London The Borderline 27/11/2016

Planet Of Zeus, Helhorse, Wicked Stone – London The Borderline 27/11/2016

God sized sounds are about to envelop The Borderline as Greek riff lords, Planet Of Zeus return to London after a brief string of dates across the U.K. There’s plenty of patriotic countrymen milling about to catch their heroes and a whiff of anticipation for.. Read More
Entombed A.D, Voivod, Lord Dying & Morbid Evils – London Underworld 17/11/16

Entombed A.D, Voivod, Lord Dying & Morbid Evils – London Underworld 17/11/16

Another cluttered night on the London gig scene with both Wardruna and Alcest in town as well, nothing wafty about this show though, a solid line up of deathly metal. Unfortunately it’s no case of supporting the supports at first with only a handful of.. Read More
Vintage Caravan, Dead Lord, Landskap – London The Underworld,13/11/2016

Vintage Caravan, Dead Lord, Landskap – London The Underworld,13/11/2016

A little bit of old school worship at The Underworld on a Sunday night is a perfect way to prepare for a new week. Icelandic power trio, The Vintage Caravan are once again laying waste to these shores and London is the latest stop. They’ve.. Read More
