Pentagram_LogoDoom metal pioneers Pentagram have been around in one shape or another since the early seventies, with the one constant in the band being wild man singer Bobby Liebling.  In all that time they had never managed to play a single show in the UK, that was until just a week or so ago when they finally played in North London's Garage.  Jim Rowland was at the show looking like a man possessed as the 'Day Of Reckoning' was nigh....

MyRuinSouthernRevthmbapproved_small_2011When a band as established as My Ruin decide to give their latest album away for FREE you know the industry is looking pretty screwed up.  However when you've been fucked over by the same industry as many times as Tairrie B. Murphy and her husband Mick, you have to wonder "Do they really need the industry?" Darrel Sutton is the man with all the answers.

Grind_Finale_thmbAs 2011 draws to an exciting conclusion, Darrel Sutton is all about one event in 2012, and no it doesn't involve a royal living another year or some overrated school sports day occurring in N.E. London. Nah he's buzzing with the prospect of Nasum reforming to celebrate their 20th anniversary albeit of course without their sadly deceased frontman Mieszko Talarczyk. So who better than the band's drummer Anders Jakobsen to fill our anxious scribe in on what to expect?

Matt Phelps went along to check out the opening night of this juggernaut sized tour to find out if these Eighties veterans could still cut it in 2011, but more importantly party like it was 1989.

ghost_thmbWhen you fall in love with a band, if you're like us, you'll pretty much do anything to get to see them live, even if it means travelling a good few hundred miles or seeing them supporting other bands you really have no interest in. Jim Rowland manages to do both in his quest to finally witness Swedish doom metallers Ghost live, and in all the excitement manages to be a few months out when picking one of his albums of the year.
