Morbid Angel O2 Islington London Antony Roberts Death Metal COvenant Tour

Early 6 o clock doors meant I arrived late with Unfathomable Ruination already a song in and playing to a fairly empty venue as those with work/other commitments failed to make it across London for the early start to the Friday night shenanigans.  Hats off to the band, they ploughed through their short set like the room is full and even with regular guitarist Daniel Herrara unable to play the band still sound tight, pounding through a slamming set with the position filled by Marek Golas of Lost Souls.  The lack of bodies in the room is made up by the enthusiasm both on and off stage as a few lads decide to...

Damnation Festival 2014

Early Saturday is a time usually filled with headaches, toast and regret; it is most certainly not one to be spent hammering feet across the cold concrete of Leeds while wolfing down day-old Sainsbury’s. But that’s exactly where we found ourselves due to an unforeseen technical issues (most certainly NOT sleeping through our alarm clocks). Metalgigs: prodding at the seedy underbelly of gonzo journalism and eating stale crisps since 2011.

All of which means we were...

Fu Manchu Brighton Concorde 2
Last night I went to see Fu Manchu.  It’s been 16 years since I last saw them gracing the stage at the now sadly demolished LA2 in London.  The question before arrival was would they still rock live?  Coming off the back of their latest album “Gigantoid” my hopes were high, it’s Fu Manchu back on form with the riffs that got me into them in the first place.  Within seconds of taking the stage any fears were allayed as they kicked into “Eatin Dust” bouncing around the...

Killtown festival line up 2014 copenhagen denmark

The last EVER Killtown Festival takes place in Copenhagen in 3 weeks time on 5th-7th September with a warm up show on the 4th September, and just LOOK AT THAT LINE UP!! 

Metalgigs is not affiliated with Killtown in anyway, but having been before I can say it was one of the best metal events i've ever been to. I would hate for people to miss out on going when this year's edition is the last one that will ever take place. The festival is so good: a small venue, great sound, no backstage, cheap beer, cheap food, free film showings, (lots) of record stalls and bands manning their own merch, and i'll say it again LOOK AT THAT LINE UP...

Wovenhand London Bush Hall Antony Roberts

This was my first visit to Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush, and after travel delays and late arrival, I ventured into the rather expansive space of the main Hall to find Wovenhand were already about to take the stage.  Built in 1904 and originally used as a dance hall it's a suitably impressive venue, full of chandeliers, decorative wall and ceiling coverings, mirrors, and a giant red curtain covering the back of the stage that looks like it was stolen straight out of the Twin Peaks set.

Considering how many...
