Memoriam

Midgardsblot Metal Festival – Borre, Vestfold, Norway 17/8/19

Day 3  Saturday I already knew that the weather forecast was going to be dodgy as a storm had passed over the region during the night (I slept through it I might add) and left its raging remnants for me… Continue Reading →

Memoriam – Requiem For Mankind (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are so legendary that they transcend above and beyond the call of duty. I mean this in as much as they form into an uncontrollable force that cannot be tainted. Just look at Led Zeppelin or Queen, bands… Continue Reading →

ManorFest – Keighley, Victoria Hall 18/5/19

OK apologies in advance. It was a late decision to review this brought on by the bloody hard work I saw going on so I did no prep and setlists were hard to come by. But such a good day… Continue Reading →

Bloodbath – The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn (Peaceville)

Manor Fest – Victoria Hall, Keighley 13/5/17

“I’ll tell you now and I’ll tell you briefly, I don’t ever want to go to Keighley”……says the John Cooper Clarke poem ‘Burnley’, referring to the West Yorkshire town which was ranked 40 in the book “Crap Towns: The 50… Continue Reading →

Memoriam- For The Fallen (Nuclear Blast)

…So, it’s finally arrived. I honestly can’t remember quite when I last looked forwards to an album this much. As a huge Bolt Thrower fan, I was left feeling pretty low when the war-obsessed crew decided to call it a… Continue Reading →
