Ranger album launch show

In less than 2 weeks on 19th March 2015 the Boston Arms Music Room will play host to the Ranger album launch show for "Where Evil Dwells", their debut full length for Spinefarm Records.

Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin performing Profondo Rosso

Goblin Profundo Rosso Barbican Centre London

GOBLIN TO PERFORM LIVE SOUNDTRACK TO PROFONDO ROSSO Ask any movie fan with a sweet spot towards horror films to name a Dario Argento film and 9 times out of 10 you'll undoubtedly hear Dawn of the Dead or Suspiria as the answer.  But then take a look at the overall ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and you'll find another film by Argento scoring a huge 95% rating - the same as both Dawn of the Dead and Suspiria. This is the criminally overlooked Profundo Rosso (Deep Red), his masterpiece slasher from 1975.  It's critics consensus is "The kinetic camerawork and brutal over-the-top gore that made Dario Argento famous is on full display, but the addition of a compelling, complex story makes Deep Red a masterpiece".  Yeah that's right a masterpiece, and you've seen it yeah? No? Then read on...

Byker Grave Festival 2014 metalgigs gig gigs listings Newcastle The Globe

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...

Inter Arma and Mantar UK tour December 2014

Inter Arma UK tour 2014 Mantar Black Heart Audio gig listings metal tour

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.

Formed in Richmond, Virginia in 2006 Inter Arma had released a few demos, a split, EP and a full length over the years up until 2012, but it was their second full length "Sky Burial" released in 2013 on Relapse Records which really made the metal...
