Search on the internet, or in past magazines for gig reviews for The Devil's Blood, and you will find write ups of the few shows they have played, hailing them as one of the shows of a lifetime.  I'm one of those souls that have stumbled on the band late, very late.  Reading all the furore about past shows I thought it about high time I go see this band in the flesh.

The Underworld was certainly busy, but not as packed as i've seen other shows, which surprised me greatly with the utterly fanatic reviews their live shows have received.  The print press has been pouring over them recently with large interviews in Zero Tolerance and Terrorizer in the last month or two.  To be fair

This gig was originally meant to take place at The Black Heart in Camden, but was switched in the last week or two before the event to the Hobgoblin in Angel.  A new venue for this metalhead, so off I went to try and locate said pub.  Situated conveniently close to Angel station, initial impressions were good.  It was a reasonable size, smaller than the Unicorn which also hosts free gigs in London, but large enough to mean the bands had brought some serious backline with them.  Drinks were reasonably priced (for London) and bar staff were cheery enough.  Anyway enough about the venue, onto the bands!
