Prostitute Disfigurement London Unicorn Camden Death Metal alldayer


Quick update on the London Prostitute Disfigurement date on 6th May.


The venue has changed to the Unicorn in Camden and this now means the all dayer will be FREE OF CHARGE.  Yes you saw the above line up and read that correctly.  This means you'd better turn up cash in hand and spend it on some lovely band merchandise, touring don't come cheap!!


Completing the line up is:

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

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.  


The setting was St Giles In The Fields Church in Holborn right in

LIVE REVIEW: Conan, Dead Existence, Sea Bastard, Pus, Brighton Cowley Club, Saturday 21st January 2012

Conan Sea Bastard Dead Existence Pus Brighton Cowley Club live review gig listings metalgigs metal gigs

Conan/Dead Existence/Sea Bastard/Pus - Brighton Cowley Club - Saturday 21 January 2012

By Gary Lukes

Right from the start, The Cowley Club sets itself off as a little bit different. Waiting at the heavy entrance door for the doorbell to be answered, you’d be forgiven for expecting a rendezvous with some kind of clandestine coalition. However, rather than being greeted by some malefic, cowled figure, we are instead invited in by a friendly doorman, the venue inside presenting itself as somewhere between a drop-in centre and a bookshop, offering no actual stage. Most crucially, the acoustics seem clear and the foundations suitably sturdy. Which is the biggest relief of all, as tonight’s line-up will test both to their limit.

Unfortunately, we arrive just in time to hear Pus winding down their set of twisted, hateful sludge. Living up to their name, the South Wales act seep diseased, down-tuned destruction from their crusty, open wounds. Monstrous howls and driving percussion pulsating amongst

Sonic Obliteration 2012 alldayer with Ulcerate and Svart Crown this Sunday

Sonic Obliteration 2012 extreme festival alldayer metal gigs gig listings metalgigs Ulcerate Svart Crown


Don't forget this Sunday is the return of Sonic Obliteration, last year saw Cerebral Bore tear it up, this year brings Ulcerate and Svart Crown to our shores with a serious amount of amazing support.  If you don't know Ulcerate what is wrong with you?!!  Technical layered extreme metal, I imagine if Neurosis had been a Death Metal band they may have ended up sounding something like Ulcerate.  Check them out here:

This is the start of their UK tour with further dates in Glasgow, Liverpool and Birmingham, details of which you can find on the above link.

Stage Times have now been announced for Sonic Obliteration and are as follows:
