On a dark and stormy Monday night, I battled my way through the forest of imps and goblins to catch up with the notorious front man Dani Filth to discuss the next chapter that he’s ...

Live: Beth Hart – Birmingham Symphony Hall

Purple lights flood an empty stage, and the dust caught hovering in the air evokes the unearthly appearance of what it might be like to wake up one morning on somewhere like Jupiter. Lord know Holst’s ‘Joybringer’ theme is much needed this year, but I’m content to hear Gary Hoey’s ‘Dust & Bones’ play over the PA, battling to be overheard above this ...

Review: Lamb of God – The Duke

Wednesday 13 and Evil Scarecrow at The Garage in London

I have never been to a show quite like this before. With only two bands playing and we all have to be kicked out before 10 O’clock as the venue turns into a nightclub after the gig. Not sounding like a wild night out, is it? And yet not only was this show sold out but the extra night they ...

We ran over to the third stage to see them on a wim and they turned out to be one of our favourite new bands that year. They were hilarious and the only other ‘funny’ band around at the time seemed to be Bowling For ...

Interview with SONIC SYNDICATE

The heavy metal outfit SONIC SYNDICATE from Falkenberg in Sweden have undergone a whole load of stylistic changes over the years. Early demos contained no clean vocals and sounded like Dark Tranquillity or In Flames. Then clean vocals started to appear on some tracks and even occasional female vocals from bass player Karin Axelsson. We Rule the Night was ultra-soft ...
