Hexis and Zatokrev are both bands I’ve liked for many years, but filed in the “bands I’ll probably never get to see live” category. I do so enjoy being wrong. On a more negative note, tonight is one of the most sparsely attended gigs I’ve ever been to, which is a huge shame for the bands. Continue reading
Tonight’s sold out show offers up a double hit of extremity, with the sheer brutality of Ingested and the hooked melodic aggression of The Black Dahlia Murder. Continue reading
Tonight’s line up features a lot of innovative and exciting extreme music, and I greatly encourage you to check our any of these bands live should you get the opportunity to.

On a dark, cold night in Manchester, those in the know have gathered to witness the Cascadian majesty of the mighty Wolves in the Throne Room.
This is only the second time I’ve been to this venue. They seem to have opened it up further than last time I was here for the Hell on Earth Tour; there’s comfy sofas, a (fake) roaring fireplace, and they’re playing Earth over the sound system. It’s all very relaxing I must say. Continue reading
