Exodus + Lost Society @ The Underworld, London

Exodus+ Lost Society +Striker

@ The Underworld, London

March 5th, 2016

Review by Ann Sulaiman

31 years since the release of debut album “Bonded by Blood” and Bay Area legends Exodus hit the road with a European and UK tour to mark the occasion.



Carrying Lost Society and Striker in tow, they paid a visit to The Underworld in London (admittedly one of their favourite spots to play, according to frontman Steve “Zetro”) for what was to be a consistently crazy night of crowdsurfing and moshing for all to enjoy.

Flotsam & Jetsam/Bliksem/Black Talon/Circle of Tyrants @ Stereo, Glasgow, 20th May 2015

June 10th, 2015

Never in Scotland, and 28 years in the making……………… a non festival UK Flotsam & Jetsam show!

It’s like a 4 leaf clover or getting change from a £20 note when you hand over a fiver, it just doesn’t happen that often, and in this case, its a very long time in the making!

Taking place in the vegan paradise of Stereo, its a bit of a strange venue, but given the number of music venues that are closing down in Glasgow in particular, beggars can’t be choosers!

Tonight saw the return of Prong; the American industrial/thrash metal band, which was formed back in 1986 by guitarist and vocalist Tommy Victor to our UK shores and after announcing their cover album earlier this year, it was clear these guys were as excited to be here as we was to see them!

Wolf @ The Underworld, Camden

Wolf @ The Underworld, Camden

Having been a fan of Wolf since I first saw them at Bloodstock in 2009 I was more than ready for their return to the UK and one of my favourite London venues; The Underworld, Camden. With it’s dark, intensely close atmosphere it’s a terrific venue for high energy and engaging bands such as the ones on the bill that evening.

Guitarist John Ricci from Exciter

 Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Tom Hack at Massacre Records for making the interview possible.

Thanks to Massacre Records for providing promo pictures of the band.


A while back I got the opportunity to talk to the guitarist John Ricci from the legendary Canadian act Exciter. Exciter’s new studio album is called DEATH MACHINE and was released late last year, so to talk about that album was a given. Besides that, we also handled issues like band-members and the past present and the future for the band. Take a look at what Mr Ricci had to say.

Watch Them Die – Vocalist Pat Vigil

November 22nd, 2005

Interview With Vocalist Pat Vigil

Interview By Lord of The Wasteland

All photos courtesy of Century Media Records and Watch Them Die

Watch Them Die’s new CD, BASTARD SON, hit me like a ton of bricks upon first listen.  Not only is the Oakland-based band pulverizing in its intensity and outright brutality, but the thrash-influenced riffs of Greg Valencia and ferocious vocals of Pat Vigil tore me a new one.  With every other new CD released these days seeming to be a metalcore hackfest, it was refreshing to hear an American band flip off the norm and go right for the jugular.

Pat Vigil took the time to answer a few questions about the new album, their just-completed tour with Exodus and 3 Inches of Blood, being on the road with GWAR and how the combination of Black Metal, punk, hardcore and Bay Area thrash bands shaped the ass-kicking sound of Watch Them Die…
