Testament, Malefice and Xerath

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

@ 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…

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!

@ O2 Academy Islington

18th September 2012

Interview By Rhiannon Marley



Apparently, you can’t have picnics in the park in Finland anymore. “Well, you can, but if you go by the book [of public protocol], it’s not allowed. It’s stupid! I love a drink in the sun!” claims Sami Hinkka.

How did we get talking about picnics in parks, I hear you ask? Well, we’re doing the interview outside and the sun is shining with the security guard of the O2 Islington just admonished Sami for wanting to bring his beer out to join him. Bad times!
