Arriving late the first support band The Sickening, could already be heard from outside.  Coming into the downstairs bar I was hit with the sounds of slammy grooves, drums and bass, but unfortunately my excitement was short lived.  Venturing into the main room I was met with

When vocalist Som was unable to make her plane from the Netherlands, death metal miscreants Cerebral Bore were faced with two of the most primeval reactions known to man; fight or flight. Like true Glaswegians, they chose the former.

Unable to shift their set to a later slot, the ‘Bore opted instead to play a short instrumental set, offering their apologies and bounding straight into the brutality of “The Bald Cadaver”. Credit where credit’s due; lesser bands would have taken the easy route and pulled out of the event. But Cerebral Bore have rightly earned their status as one of the hardest working bands in the underground today, managing to incite a bigger pit than most bands could muster all day.

Interview: Nine Covens

Nine Covens Interview metal gigs gig listings

Search the net and you’ll find very little about Nine Covens, a band shrouded in mystery…

"Featuring current and ex-members of some of the key extreme bands from the last decade, Nine Covens came together to explore the darker, more brooding aspects of Black Metal and in doing so have created a virulent, belligerent and passionate account of the weakness that exists in humanity.

Their need to challenge these human failings and those of all enemies of reason have resulted in their debut album …On The Coming Of Darkness. A confrontation to the eternally weak and all who follow without question to reflect on themselves and consider an alternative."

It was Halloween and this always means there is a slew of Metal gigs around the UK.

Brighton had a night of doom in the form of Pagan Altar and Sea Bastard with a free after show featuring France's Monarch.

We headed over to the Green Door Store, a fairly recently opened venue conveniently situated directly underneath Brighton train Station.  Much like Camden's Unicorn this venue
