Picture Ann ‘Bloodlines’ Digital Single Out Now

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 ...
