The Garage brought shelter from the gloomy rainy Sunday for doom fans this weekend yet London decided to be fashionably late. Witchsorrow took to the stage with roughly 40 people spaced out inside it's large interior. Opening with "Aurora Atra" the 3 piece break the normal stage mould with drummer Dave and his kit sandwiched between Nick and Emily front of stage. It made for an interested show, rather than being buried at the back I could watch him smack the hell out of his kit right under the front house lights. Witchsorrow may not be breaking any ground with their material firmly routed in traditional doom but if it ain't broke, then why fix it?

Due to Hurricane Sandy I'm sure you're all aware that lots of flights have been cancelled. The promoter for the Pentagram UK tour Francis Mace has been working extremely hard to move things around and make this still happen. Due to delays in flights the Bristol date has had to move. The fact a date is still going ahead in Bristol means we have to give big respect to the promoter and venues involved, for managing to move things around at such short notice. Please find all the info below in regard to the Bristol date change from the promoter. London, Manchester and Glasgow are still going ahead as normal.
As I'm sure most of you are well aware - Hurricane Sandy has been looming over the East Coast of America for the past 48hrs and has caused a state of emergency to be declared in most major East Coast cities.
