Eye of Solitude @ The Black Heart

Eye of Solitude @ The Black Heart

It’s a fittingly cold night in London as we head to the Black Heart, Camden for a round of some of the finest doom metal Europe has to offer. Teaming up with Infected Brain promotions, both EYE OF SOLITUDE and MARCHE FUNEBRE gear up for the opening night of their first ever UK tour.

Marduk @ The Underworld, London

Marduk @ The Underworld

Marduk @ The Underworld

To call the Underworld grimy would be an injustice to a venue that has put on some of the best underground gigs over the years. It is however dark and dank, and the countless sweating bodies are only making it worse. Far from being off putting though, there really is no other real way to really experience black metal in all its putrid, vile form. With London being the only show in the UK and rumours that the show had sold out for the night, the venue is packed out with people from all corners of the UK, eager to catch Marduk going old school.

Death to All, Obscura and DarkRise @ Kentish Town Fourm

Death to All

with Obscura and DarkRise

@ The Kentish Town Forum, London UK

26th November, 2013

Review by Caitlin Smith

Celebrating past legends is something the metal scene has always hung onto. Who can miss the Dimebag tributes every year, the Dio stage at Bloodstock and the Jeff Hanneman tribute is surely not too far off. One that you rarely hear of though is pioneer and father of death metal Chuck Schuldiner. Aiming to change this are three of his old band members who joined him at during his career. Death to All is a celebration of the life of this influential musician by keeping alive his work from over the years.

TESTAMENT @ KoKo, Camden

December 11th, 2012

Testament, Malefice and Xerath

@ KoKo, Camden London

30th November 2012

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Michelle Murphy



Hailed as ‘arguably one of the most popular American thrash groups of all time’, seasoned fireball Testament have plenty of hell-raising on their hands.

After the release of tenth studio album ‘Dark Roots of Earth’, they’re hitting the capital with a vengeance tonight – the first time I’ll have witnessed them since they annihilated Bloodstock Open Air back in August!

London fans have been waiting in anticipation for weeks, and judging by ticket-holders shivering in masses outside, it looks set to be a veteran guest-list: Kreator tees, thrash cuts and thinning barnets confirming Testament’s unwavering fan-base who, you can bet your life, queued with as much fervour in ’89 as they do in 2012.

SABATON and Eluveitie @ The Forum

Sabaton and Eluveitie

@ HMV Forum, London

9th November 2012

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Whether you think of Sabaton as pioneers of modern power metal or a bunch of self-confessed ‘Village People in combats’, the fact is, they’re bloody good fun. Flying high with 2012′s Carolus Rex after a renowned post-recording line-up change, the belligerent Swedes are hitting the HMV Forum tonight in force – and from what I’ve heard, in FLAMES…

KAMELOT & Xandria @ HMV Forum, London

Kamelot and Xandria

@ HMV Forum, London

7th November 2012

Review by Victoria Fenbane

Photography by Michelle Murphy



Much like fellow symphonic metallers Nightwish, Xandria have faced front-woman dramas in recent years, the product of which is latest album Neverworld’s End and a switch to a more operatic style, which is hard to miss!

RECKLESS LOVE @ Barfly, London

Reckless Love @ Barfly, London

11th October 2012

Review by Ollie Thomas

Photography by Natasha Truman



Reckless Love have enjoyed quite a bit of success on these shores recently, after performing to a packed tent at Download and very nearly stealing the show on their run supporting Black Veil Brides. No doubt helped by the meteoric rise of fellow glam-metal group Steel Panther, although they are a lot more serious and less of a gimmick, Reckless Love have easily appealed to the same audience and snowballed in popularity.

EVILE w/ Pythia & Wolf

28th October 2012

Review by Lianne Alice

Photography by Ashlinn Nash



The day couldn’t have been any more miserable, freezing cold and raining, not to mention that it’s a Sunday night and transport was non-existent! But that was not going to dampen my mood, as I was on my way to a gig I had been waiting for, for a long time! I finally get to see Evile live!

Lacuna Coil @ KoKo, London

Review by Ollie Thomas

Photography by Graham Hilling  



2012 marks fourteen years since Lacuna Coil released their EP and first album, In a Reverie, and they have decided to celebrate that history by bringing a set spanning some two hours to London.

There should be something for all fans tonight as they will be playing something from every album.

I AM I @ Borderline, London

November 6th, 2012

I Am I, Arthemis and Fahran

@ Borderline, London

22nd October 2012

Review by Alan Hicks

Photography by Sabrina Dersel


The Borderline, tucked away nicely around the corner from the Crobar always gives the feeling of intimacy.

This may sound blindingly obvious considering the size of the place (under 300 capacity) but this intimacy adds an almost showcase feel to proceedings, as if you are witnessing something special, like a one-off performance from a band usually more accustomed to playing larger venues or an act who after these tentative steps will play somewhere a whole lot bigger.

I Am I are somewhere between the two slightly helped by the presence of ex-Dragonforce singer ZP Theart in the ranks.

SECRETS OF THE MOON and Bethlehem @ Underworld, London

Bethlehem and Secrets Of The Moon

@ Underworld, London

Monday 1st October 2012

Review by Jesel Gohil



Despite being at The Underworld only 3 days before and but a few cobwebs in my wallet, missing a rare UK performance from Bethlehem wasn’t on my to do list. After the obligatory trip to The Worlds End next door and talking to some guy quite proud of his collection of Cradle of Filth demo cassettes and Darkthrone photo negatives from the graves of the 80s it was time to catch the opening band.

Ensiferum @ O2 Islington Academy

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Andre Purvis



If you’re a miserable human being, don’t go to see Ensiferum!

I worked that out during the 2011 Ugly World Tour, on which they were joined by fellow Scandinavians Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom, and tonight, I couldn’t wait to see if Ensiferum would slay the crowd again – this time, in leading role!

Tristania have taken a break from writing the follow up album to ‘Rubicon’ to go on a Norwegian Arts Council sponsored whistle-stop 14 date, 7 country European tour and we caught up with them on their only UK date, at Camden’s Underworld.
