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.

PYTHIA @ The Borderline, London

Pythia, Mortad & L Sol Tace

@ The Borderline, London.

Review by Chris Rossiter

On a beautiful summers evening, I made my way down (with brutal hangover intact) to one of my favourite venues, The Borderline in the West End of London, to catch a few bands that I’ve been meaning to catch for a while, and also hang out with some excellent friends, while most importantly, listening to first class music!

GOJIRA @ 02 Islington Academy

Gojira @ 02 Islington Academy

27th June 2012

Review and Photography by Ashlinn Nash


Tonight is a night full of anticipation, due to the headliners, Gojira having released a latest offering “l’enfant sauvage” (Wild child in English), which is a fresh from the press slab of genius; tonight’s focus is on the new selection of ear candy treats from both bands!

With support to night from the home grown, quintet The Safety fire, who’s Album “Grind the Ocean” came out earlier in the year. Set to be a night of new materials from both bands all delivered to us in the modest 02 Islington academy, the headliners are a band no stranger to intimate shows, this is set to be a delight for all the senses.

COVAN WAKE THE FUCK UP! Feat. Decapitated & Ted Maul @ The Underworld Camden, London

July 30th, 2012

COVAN WAKE THE FUCK UP!

Feat. Decapitated & Ted Maul

@ The Underworld Camden London

Friday 29th June 2012

Review by Sabrina Dersel

Photography by Andre Purvis



Decapitated – Spheres of Madness – Feat/Sauron and Solomon.J.Lucifer.Christ- Ted Maul!

COVAN WAKE THE FUCK UP is a series of benefit concerts featuring the legendary polish band Decapitated who reformed after their tragic road accident, due to negligence during a post accident operation; Adrian "Covan" Kowanek went into a cardiac arrest and cerebral hypoxia.

But now there’s hope for Covan to regain some quality of life with a ground breaking new surgery utilising stem cells transplantation at a clinic in Koln, Germany.

For this to take place, the aim of tonight’s gig is to raise as much money as possible for his cause.

DECAPITATED w/ABORTED @ Dingwalls, London

April 27th, 2012

Decapitated @ Dingwalls, London

26th Feb 2012

Review by Hal Sinden

Photography by Michelle Murphy

 

Gig cancellation or relocation due to poor pre-sales seems to be fairly rife recently, most notably in the Camden area, with a fair few extreme metal gigs being shifted at the last minute from staple mainstays like the Underworld to the spare attic-like confines of venues such as Upstairs at the Islington Garage.

Those who have kept their bookings unchanged have in some cases suffered shockingly poor attendance (especially if the Origin / Psycroptic show in February was anything to go by), it’s therefore heartening to see that this event has remained as booked, however it’s also intriguing to see how well a bill of this intensity will go down at Dingwalls – with “down” being the operative word, given the venue’s tiered flooring system for the audience area.

DRAGONFORCE @ 100 Club, London

March 16th, 2012

DragonForce @ 100 Club, London

16th February 2012

Review by Ollie Thomas

Photography by Andre Purvis

London power metallers DragonForce have received a lot of stick recently for YouTube footage of their tour cycle in support of highly successful album Inhuman Rampage where less than due care and attention from roadies led to bad sound set ups, and sometimes even unturned guitars on stage waiting for them, earning them the nickname “StudioForce” after rumours they sped up their recordings and couldn’t play them.

Tonight’s intimate show at the prestigious 100 Club on London’s Oxford Street, in support of upcoming album The Power Within (Due April 15th 2012 on Essential Music in the UK and Roadrunner Records in the US) is a chance to silence many of these critics once and for all.

EDGUY @ O2 Academy Islington

Edguy @ O2 Academy Islington

Supported by Voodoo Six and Primitai

4th February 2012

Reviewed by: Wolf ‘Annihilation’ Shankland

Now this was a crowd!

Waiting in line with a few of my mates was a massive experience, the hundreds of ‘Edguy’ fans waiting for the legendary power metal band hailing from Fulda, Germany.

Each one eagerly waiting for the O2 Academy to finally open their doors. Even in the cold and the snow, their spirits were lightened up by the crazy Scotsman in the wheelchair, flying up and down the crowd, doing his best power metal scream and challenging people to a drinking contest: hold the can with your teeth and lean back and drink whilst air guitaring with both hands and not dropping it. Winner gets four cans. Loved it!!! Watching people spilling drinks down themselves made I chuckle.

Review: James Griffiths

Friday night in Camden around the Underworld seemed unusually quiet seeing as Pagan’s Mind are playing tonight, even heading downstairs to the venue it’s the same story…but things were soon about to change!

CHILDREN OF BODOM, Amon Amarth, Ensiferum @ HMV Forum, London

9th April 2011

Review: Danny Draper

Tonights gig is a big’un! Two top draw bands at the top of their game; in my humble opinion, and a band that I’ve heard of, but never had the pleasure. What a pleasure tonight was though!
