Desertfest, commonly known as the greatest stoner/doom festival around, takes over London for a whole weekend each year. And as 2015 was no exception, Desertfest once more rolled into London’s Camden Town and Metal-Rules.com UK team were there to report it all. Well… at least most of what we can remember from it, as Desertfest is also known as one of the most fun weekends of the year. And you all surely know what we mean by ‘fun’.

Pints were had, bands were seen, music was heard, friends were made, good times were had and memories were lost. What more for a good time!?

When Red Fang, Eyehategod and Sleep were announced as headliners of Desertfest 2015, it was clear that it’s going to be a weekend not to miss. And it’s not just the headliners that make Desertfest the greatest doom / stoner party around. It’s all the people who continue showing up year after year and support the scene. And it’s also the festival organisers who put in hours and days of hard work to make it all happen and gather acts, like Acid King, Brant Bjork and The Low Desert Punks, Orange Goblin, Angel Witch, Ufomammut and many more under the same bill.

Scattered around some of Camden’s most iconic venues, like KOKO, Electric Ballroom, The Underworld and more, Desertfest sure is one hell of a party to take over the usually tourist-packed area and bring together hundreds of like-minded people for some good times and better music. And here’s how it was for us…

Bloody Hammers @ The Underworld, London

Bloody Hammers

The Underworld, London, UK

8th June, 2014

Review by Caitlin Smith

It seems hard to turn anywhere on the London scene at the moment without bumping into a psychedelic or doom lineup playing one venue or another. Heading up the Underworld that night are Carolina based Bloody Hammers, bringing along with them a suitably dismal line up.

BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2013

Bloodstock Open Air 2013

8th – 11th August 2013

Imagine a weekend of nothing but pure heavy fucking metal.
Imagine being surrounded by the friendliest 15,000 people who share the same passion for heavy metal music and lifestyle. Imagine a place where it is respectable to have beer for breakfast and drinking until you drop in an accomplishment. Imagine a festival where you can see over 100 heavy metal bands and pretty much none of them suck.

Ladies and gents, this ain’t no heavy metal fairytale!

This is Bloodstock Open Air – the greatest heavy metal music festival of our times. It’s a place where metal heads run free, headbang until their heads roll off, shout ‘SLAYEEER!’ and avoid shower for 4 days straight.
It just does not get any better than this.

Our Metal-Rules.com UK team were privileged to attend Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and see things for themselves…here’s a ‘little’ insight of what went down.

Cauldron / Monument / Amulet

@ Camden Barfly

Review by Anna Dumpe

Tonight we faced the cold outside and made our way to Camden Barfly in North London, to see Cauldron, and the evening is looking to be all about headbanging, drinking beer and traditional heavy metal as we know it. It’s about as good as Wednesday night can get!
