Blood Of The Sun and Lucifer live in London 2018

Blood Of The Sun cleverly combine 70s classic hard rock and heavy prog-rock. Mixing in classic guitar riffs and melodies with stoner rock vocals and one of their key unique elements is the electric organ solos. Their sound has changed and developed over the years as their formation constantly changes, creating a pool of musical talent. However, of course, the line-up...

Kamelot live in London 2018

Kamelot are on their biggest ever world tour, and I caught them on their European leg, after already hitting North America by storm. Kamelot were supported by Cellar Darling, who are a great example of incredible folk metal, fronted by Anna Murphy, from one of my favourite folk metal bands, Eluveitie. Although Kamelot have been around since 1991, they have won over a...

Lordi are the infamous Finnish hard rock band, with influences from shock rock, melodic and 80s heavy metal.

Cauldron and Primitai live in London 2018

I was lucky to get two for one tonight, with two amazing heavy metal bands playing at the Black Heart, which is one of my favourite venues in Camden. Both fall into the broad heavy, power and thrash metal genres, but each take their own influences, styles and give it a unique twist.

Visigoth live in London 2018

Visigoth’s fantasy battle and mythological themes seep through their epic power metal songs to bring their namesake nomadic tribe to life. You can imagine it being played as the battle music when the Visigoths invaded the Roman Empire. Fitting as it was the band’s first UK tour invasion, and they are going on to conquer Holland and Germany after, reclaiming their...
