Mystifier London The Dome gig listings

Chatting to a friend today and I was surprised he wasn't familiar with the support bands on the incoming Death/Black metal assault that is about to hit the capital this Saturday as it's probably the strongest full line up of any gig this year.  I thought to myself if he isn't familiar with the supports, then how many others are not familiar with them?  So without further ado here's some info and music from all the bands playing this KILLER show hitting London this Saturday. See you in the pit \m/

Beehoover UK tour starts this week

Beehoover UK tour 2014 purple turtle 2011

Oh no Red Fang has sold out on Friday.  Well boo hoo - you snooze you lose, but fear not as Beehoover are playing in London on Friday to kick off their UK tour and let me assure you they RULE!  The 2 piece from Esslingen in Germany haven't played our shores many times, the last time I think was 2011 with Sons Of Otis (but don't quote me on that!) and they seem to be one of those bands that if people haven't heard of them they check them out and love 'em.
