Cauldron / Monument / Amulet

@ Camden Barfly

28th November 2012

Review by Anna Dumpe

Photography by Michelle Murphy


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!

MOTORHEAD w/ Anthrax @ Brixton Academy

December 11th, 2012

Motorhead / Anthrax / Diaries of a Hero

@ O2 Academy Brixton

17th November 2012

Review by Anna Dumpe

Photography by Michelle Murphy



One of the most anticipated tours of the year rolled into town as Anthrax and Motorhead make an appearance to O2 Academy Brixton to play a sold-out show. There have been talks previous to tonight about how ‘No Rock, Metal music fan can miss tonight’s performance’! Have been circulating since April and created a mass-excitement in the world heavy metal.

So we were sure not to miss tonight and to experience the loudest Rock’n’Roll show of the year and damage our hearing without a care in the world!

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.

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Michelle Murphy



If the power of the deep compels you, extreme metal sensation Gojira should be at the top of your playlist. The quintet are storming London’s KoKo tonight, on the back of 2012′s release, L’Enfant Sauvage.

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!

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…

METAL HAMMER HALLOWEEN PARTY @ O2 Islington Academy

December 6th, 2012

Metal Hammer Halloween Party

@ O2 Academy Islington, London

29th October 2012

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Michelle Murphy



When corpse paint, fake blood and gruesome fancy-dress come up in conversation, two things spring to mind: the set of a Watain gig, or Halloween. But it’s the time of year for the latter, and horn-wielding giants Metal Hammer are throwing all this and more at a sonic carnival of celebration!

Arriving at Wembley Park station with the American Football event at the stadium just next door is not something I would like to happen again: walking against the flow of thousand and thousand of sport fans leaving the 90,000 seats capacity of the stadium is quite an experience!

I love the Underworld in Camden! It may be a small venue but it has housed some of the biggest names in metal, such as Fear Factory and Suffocation and tonight it’s home to Gothenburg melodic death metal titans, Engel.
