Being my first time at the festival I had absolutely no idea what to expect, I had heard a ton of great reviews, but was wondering if they were over exaggerated by fans of the festival. ...

Execration

Deliberations From The Shire with Mike James – Execration

This is Execration‘s third album and they have certainly found their sound now although shorter than the previous two, this album builds on the sound and feel of their sophomore album in 2014. There is something for everyone on Return To The Void be that Black, Thrash, Death or in places Heavy Metal. For me, the back bone of this ...

Guns n roses London

Not In This Lifetime did we expect such a mind blowing outcome from the Guns N’ Roses reunion.

The excitement before Saturday’s gig is palpable as Guns N’ Roses have already played the night before leaving fans and sceptics positively speechless beyond all expectations.

Igorrr's Savage Sinusoid

Deliberations From The Shire with Mike James – Igorrr

From the opening guttural screams and crushing riff this is not going to be the easiest of listens, but for fans of Gautier Serre (Igorrr) the four-year wait is over!
