Hailed as 'The New Goth Kings Of Manchester' by Metal Hammer Magazine, the North West dark metalllers Sinnergod certainly live up to their reputation.

Owleye, a Denver based Post Hardcore band take on the A-Z challenge...

When We Were Wolves at Cathouse, Glasgow

Rounding the night off were When We Were Wolves, who are loud and heavy...and unashamedly so. They are a complete contrast to the opening band Armstrong. Mitch's voice was better in the dirty vocal than the clean but still had me entertained. They seem to be skating that thin ice between metal and post hardcore and I kind of like it.
