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 ...

King 810, Courtesans, Upon Those Dying @ Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

Home town boys Upon Those Dying get things going thunderously as they lay down tar-thick riffs aplenty. Being their first time playing to a sold-out crowd of this size, the larger environment seems to suit them down to the ground as they don’t fall into the common pitfalls of your average opener. Their bludgeoning deathcore sunk in fast as waves ...
