It’s the middle of the week and a sold out Hammersmith Apollo is waiting for Slash Feat Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators to rock the stage. Tickets went so fast for this show that they could have easily played an extra date in London, so it feels extra special to be part of such an eventful night. Last September they ...

Conjurer

Conjurer only deal in vast quantities of six-stringed agony | Fuel Rock Bar, Cardiff

Not going to lie, seeing Conjurer headline smaller capped venues is rad as hell, but given the reputation they’ve snowballed over the course of 2018, we get the feeling that they may be selling themselves short here. Still, when the intensity is this raw and condensed it makes for one hell of a sight. But first, black metal newcomers Black Pyre are ...

Despite pulling from such ...

Behemoth, At The Gates, Wolves In The Throne Room at Bristol’s Marble Factory

The feeling of evil in the air is as thick as tar. Marely being in the presence of Behemoth in the same building is enough to send shivers down the spine of any god-fearing person. Though it shouldn’t be god that they fear tonight. In a staggering three song set, the wide black metal landscape that Wolves In The Throne ...
