After seeing Kylesa play a blinding set at The Haunt and experiencing its seriously awesome sound system for the first time, there was no questions asked at all, we had to go and see Earth play there.   Kylesa was my first time at The Haunt and I fell straight in love with the venue.  It's small and intimate, but unlike so many small venues they've actually spent some money on the P.A. system, and it sounds amazing. 


Walking on to quiet and polite applause, Earth took to the stage, and Dylan thanked us for joining him on

cannibal corpse live review HMV forum triptykon enslaved job for a cowboy metalgigs gig listings metal gigs


LIVE REVIEW: Cannibal Corpse, Triptykon, Enslaved, Job For A Cowboy, HMV Forum, London 10th March 2012

Thin Lizzy, Clutch, Triggerfinger, Brighton Dome, Friday 3rd February 2012


Words and photos by Antony Roberts


Arriving at the rather spacious and grand Brighton Dome and Triggerfinger had already taken to the stage.  Prior to their support announcement I had not heard the name, so I had briefly checked out the myspace but from what I'd heard I was not too fussed about catching them.  Thankfully I did get there early though as they are one of those bands that fair a lot better in a live environment, and they were very different, at least compared to the few tracks i had heard from their myspace.  Any singer

Skepticism and Pantheist, St Giles In The Fields Church, London, 28th January 2012


Words and photos by Antony Roberts


Finland's Skepticism may have formed back in 1991 but they had never made it to the British Isles in the 21 years since their conception.  This last weekend brought about a halting to their abstinence, as they showcased a monstrous live performance in London.
