Primordial @ O2 Academy Islington
February 7th, 2015

By Ann Sulaiman (reviewer) and Ashlinn Nash (photography)

Almost four years since their last visit, “dark metal” band Primordial returned to the O2 Islington for the London part of their UK mini-tour. While Winterfylleth were again on tow, a couple of newer faces came along this time around, namely Swedish traditional metallers Portrait and fellow Irishmen Malthusian. Though an early curfew (venue rules and restrictions on Saturday night) meant that everything would have be over by 10pm, word about an afterparty at The Dev meant that more fun would be waiting around the corner.

The evening began around 5 o’clock, with newcomers Malthusian. Despite having only a demo release under their belt, the band’s limit of three songs was more than enough, since everything filled up their half hour set time. Considering the nature of their brand of extreme music – that vein of black metal which needs you to sit down and listen (or at least stand there, squeezing invisible oranges) – this was pretty much expected.

Prepare for a new documentary – British Black Metal: The Extreme Underground

February 4th, 2015

The British black metal scene is currently bursting and exciting; many would claim. The British black metal scene is currently bursting and exciting; Andy Horry from Leeds sets out to prove. To capture the essence of what makes the UK’s bleak landscape so special at this moment in time, the young film maker’s project, entitled British Black Metal: The Extreme Underground encompasses the best and the biggest of the nation’s thriving scene, including the glorious Winterfylleth, Northern folklore masters Old Corpse Road, and the war torn Eastern Front. With the film still in the making, I had a few words with Andy Horry about just why this documentary needs to be made, and why it deserves your pledging support.

“The idea for the documentary actually came up in conversation with my former band, “Slaughter Throne”. Andy tells me. “I’d made a few vlogs for the band that had a documentary feel to them and because of all the bands that were around in the UK, and especially Yorkshire it seemed like it would be a good idea to cover what is out there right now.”

There’s a palpable air of excitement outside the Islington academy tonight and to be fair who couldn’t be excited by such a great line-up? Having heard very good things about Winterfylleth and Hell in previous weeks and being a long time Primordial fan even I’ll admit to being a little excited!
