“We have come here to take your NHS.” That’s how GWAR introduce themselves as they take to the stage in London’s Islington Academy to a packed, sweaty and sold out crowd. The band behind the masks and latex garner up a massive roar of approval from die hard fans in the capital- some are dressed up like their heroes. GWAR have always used in jokes and a ‘fuck you’ to anyone that disagrees and it’s fun to see their tour called ‘...

Its only been a few months since Bokassa released the soundtrack to our summer ‘Crimson Riders’. Of course a potential album of the year by many media outlets simply wasn’t enough that the band felt the need to embark upon a huge stadium tour with none other than Metallica. Its been a busy year for our kings of stoner punk, thats for sure, but as we draw a close to the year, the band are still hard at it. 

The Riffs, Hooks...

Who better than to turn the infamous Brixton Academy into a war zone on a Saturday night than the mighty Amon Amarth who have had a very successful run in celebration of their latest offering ‘Berserker’. Its the final date on the UK leg before hauling their massively impressive stage props across the sea over to mainland Europe.

Joining them, Death Metal warhorses Hypocrisy who have played their fair share of stages over their...

Theres a massive buzz in the air as a huge sold out crowd makes their way into the historic Brixton Academy for an evening with Machine Head. The sentiment is echoed early on by frontman Robb Flynn who asks the crowd if they can feel it. He’s right, theres an energy inside the venue as the band steamrolls their way through the first of two mammoth sets treating the “headcases” to not only all the fan favourites, but also the b...

Killswitch Engage have been a staple in most metal heads playlists for many years now and things have been no different this year with the release of ‘Atonement’ that saw the band kick things up a gear in what was one of their most ambitious albums to date. Atonement came armed to the teeth with slabs of quality American metal many of which were heard live for the first time on this tour which only reaffirmed our beliefs that...

I was very glad that The Revival Music sent me back to Skegness Butlins for The Great British Alternative Music Festival again this year. It’s a great value for money weekend with ample opportunities to meet old friends and make new ones whilst enjoying some top class bands.

As before, the daytime focal point is The Skyline, a massive covered space ideal for socialising and enjoying the Introducing Stage. This stage isn’t...

As the autumnal sun sets over the city skyline in Wolverhampton, a group of metal heads gather in a back street. We're back at K.K.'s Steel Mill in Wolverhampton as thrash legends Annihilator roll into town.


The evening kicks off with one of our favourite up and coming acts, Elyrean. We followed them through the Metal 2 The Masses competition at this very venue earlier in the year and onto their performance at Bloodstock Festi...

29 years, 29 long, gruelling years. That’s how long most of this crowd have waited (minus a few of us “younger folk”) since their last taste of British thrash heroes Acid Reign last album release, that’s right Tool fans, sit down, you know nothing of waiting! 2019 is the year they delivered, revived several years ago by the ever energetic frontman ‘H’, it was clear the desire was still bleeding strong in the veins of the band,...

The quality tour packages continue to take the UK music scene by storm and tonight is no different. Proving that variety is the spice of life, the trio that is Danko Jones, Baroness and Volbeat is an unlikely partnership that brings the masses to Brixton Academy for a toasty treat that not only delivers exceptional value for money but a wild ride from start to finish. 

Danko Jones pull the short straw for the night and take the...

We arrive in Leicester today on the back end of summer. The outdoor summer festivals are done and dusted and we have the winter touring season to look forward to, and what a season that is shaping up to be. But whilst we wait for the action to kick off there is a lull in proceedings for a few weeks, and one which organisers of Uprising hope to fill! 

Uprising is a small scale indoor festival in Leicester. Two stages at the O2...
