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…

RECKLESS LOVE @ Barfly, London

November 9th, 2012

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

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

 28th October 2012

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

October 21st, 2012

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!

PYTHIA @ The Borderline, London

Pythia, Mortad & L Sol Tace

@ The Borderline, London.

Review by Chris Rossiter

Photography by Andre Purvis



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

July 30th, 2012

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

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.
