Live: Behemoth @ London Kentish Town Forum – 10 February 2014

Behemoth at Bloodstock Open Air 2012 by Gary Wolstenholme (because we don't have a London gig shot, OBVS)

With their new album The Satanist only just released (and already getting plenty of plaudits), Behemoth came to London this week to headline a show on top of a stacked bill of bands to remind people why it’s already being touted as an early contender for one of the albums of the year.

Saturnian certainly seem to think this is the best tactic.

Pirate metallers Alestorm stand accused not of piracy on the high seas, but of being insufferably shite. However, innocent until proven guilty and all that. So, by the power invested in me by my keyboard, I present to you the latest evidence: Back Through Time. And may God have mercy on my ears.
