It's funny how things turn out isn't it? Last year was meant to see the first Northern Darkness festival take place but things went pear shaped and it was cancelled. The problem was a lot of people had booked travel and accomodation and so a separate group of promoters decided to save the day and combined forces, somehow managing to put together a full 1 day festival at the last minute. The promoters were Paul from 'kin Hell Fest, Bro UK (organisers of Brofest) and Omega Warfare. it was headlined by Hellkrusher with the likes of...
Next week will see 2 heavyweights hit the UK in the form of American 5 piece Inter Arma and the German two piece monster that is Mantar. Having been blown away by both bands in the live environment I felt compelled to spread the word about this tour as it needs a push and you seriously need to check out both bands on this tour live.

It's pissing down outside and the beer is over four quid a pint. None of that matters as the mighty Dying Fetus are playing tonight. They are a band that have been overlooked by some, underestimated by many, and have a name to make your mum cringe.

As the crowd builds a mixture of...
