After a late running interview with Grand Magus, I dart my way into the O2 Asylum in Birmingham and collect my press pass, getting inside just in time to catch the show begin! 

The first band, and only UK act of the night, are Midlands death metallers Ashen Crown. Anyone aware of this band will immediately note that they are slightly odd choice for this classic metal lineup (they will also no doubt be aware of their debut album...

For the love of all things Thrash Metal, The Kentish Town forum has probably never been treated to such delights as on this night, three legendary bay area acts take to the stage to deliver a full assault to the senses at 110 miles per hour. It’s a sold out Friday night in London, and its never looked so good. 

Death Angel are an absolute delight to watch first as they, quite frankly manage to hit a home run. Could it be the ex...

Californian nu-metal quintet Hollywood Undead took to the stage at London's O2 Forum Kentish Town last Friday, to mark the release of their new album New Empire, Vol 1 from the same day.  Supporting the band for this special one time show was Pengshui. 

The London based three-piece Pengshui opened up the night with a high energy set, fusing grime like vocals with musical influences from hip-hop, metal, and punk. With their...

Tonight sees Thy Art Is Murder and their entourage bring the 'Human Target' tour thundering into the O2 Institute Birmingham for the last date on the UK part of the run after continual sell out shows around the country. Bringing a fully stocked lineup of powerhouse bands in tow with them in the form of; I Am, Rivers Of Nihil, Fit For An Autopsy and Carnifex, the night is undoubtedly set to be incendiary start to finish. 

After...

One could quite easily say that right now, Sabaton are at the peak of their career. After the success of last years ‘The Great War’, This year has seen the band play one of their biggest shows yet, Live at Wembley Arena and to say the band have come armed to the teeth with some serious support power would be an understatement. 

While Sabaton may not be for everyone there is no denying their underlying messages. Here is a band t...

It’s very rare for me to slow down when attending a concert, however going to see Mark Mortons (Lamb of God) solo show at the Underworld was a nice divergence from my normal concert experience. Joined by Mark Morales (Sons of Texas) and Joe Harvatt (Hark) the trio played through a variety of songs from Marks 2019 album Anesthetic along with some acoustic covers of the likes of Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains. Joi...

“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...
