Live Review: Pagan @ Satan’s Hollow, Manchester

December 5th, 2018 by

“The technical proficiency on display from the band members is also incredible, from the drumming to the excellent guitar work of both four and six string varieties. The set is of course made up solely of songs from the outstanding debut album Black Wash, and they come across just as well if not better in the live environment”.

Architects – Holy Hell

November 9th, 2018 by

To know the pain the band must have gone through with their transition between All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us to Holy Hell, it has proven that proceeding with what they love best, and sharing their story with everyone has truly strengthened Architects and pushed for the challenge they encountered. The torch is held high in honour of the late guitarist Tom Searle who lost his life to cancer, who would have been proud of the record his fellow band members produced.

October 17th, 2018 by

[Photo: William Pavli] The Black Queen put on a captivating show at Bush Hall. Despite touring their most recent record Infinite Games, they favoured their debut, Fever Daydream. While both records are equally as magnificent, it seems odd that the older record was favoured in such a way. Perhaps this was due to Fever Daydream […]

Prognosis- Definition

October 12th, 2018 by

Admittedly, I don’t hear much about Manchester’s metal scene. You’d assume it’s as good as any UK city’s scene but it does have one thing that no other city in the UK has.

There’s a definite US radio rock feel to this record, whilst still maintaining […]
