Curse those bloody word limits / the internet’s embarrassingly short collective attention span. Whatever. Here are the 6 things that Cheryl thinks are worth your time and interest in Black Metal right now.

Live: Watain + Coltsblood @ London Camden Electric Ballroom – 08 December 2013

Watain at Bloodstock Open Air 2012 by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

We’re not sure if Erik Danielsson was casting an unholy spell on the audience at Watain’s show at the Camden Electric Ballroom. He seems like the type. He’s certainly got all the smoke and fire and stench to carry out all manner of rituals. We asked Cheryl Carter if she could resist the hexes long enough to write a review which we’re only posting now because we lost it down the back of sofa, or whatever the digital version of that excuse may be.

Texas Is The Reason 04 August 2013 Camden Electric Ballroom Thrash Hits

Texas Is The Reason played their final ever show at the Electric Ballroom here in London on Sunday. For those in attendance, it was a pretty emotional night. Alex Andrews was there to see one of emo’s (in the traditional sense of the word) cornerstone acts say goodbye for the last time.

Live: Fucked Up, Titus Andronicus + Metz @ London Electric Ballroom – 30 May 2013

June 3rd, 2013

There’s this weird position that Fucked Up occupy in the monder punk-rock pantheon, with their fans falling somewhere between that of punks who’ve graduated from entry-level nonsense, and hipsters looking for just a tiny taste of hardcore judos to declare as one of their own. When the band played their own show here in London – co-headlined by Titus Andronicus and supported by Metz – we sent Ollie Connors along to see how that middle ground is working out for them.

Propagandhi, Comeback Kid and Shai Hulud playing on the same bill is as good a punk line-up as 2013 gigs are likely to see. With that in mind, we sent Tom ‘You Are Not Better Than Pop Music‘ Doyle along to review said line-up when it came to London earlier this week.

Our Deputy Editor, Hugh Platt, makes no secret of his love for The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Will their original line-up reunion Halloween show leave him full of fanboy glee, or leave him wishing he’d stuck with his memories? Rhetorical question, ahoy!

Live & Photos: Every Time I Die @ London Electric Ballroom – 30 November 2011

December 6th, 2011

every time i die promo photo 2011 thrash hits no josh

Every Time I Die are one of my favourite bands in the world. They encapsulate everything that is good about heavy music. Riffs, melody, excellent merch. I wouldn’t own six ETID tshirts otherwise.

Is that excessive? No – they’re all awesome shirts. Is this going to be a balanced, honest review? It’s the only way. Was I drunk? No – it was the first time sober at an ETID show and I was scared. Especially when I nipped out for a cigarette and had to bustle my way past half a dozen handbags (after they’d hit me in the belly, of course) and then the very ample smoking area was full. What was this madness? So many women. So much cancer. Every Time I Die!

Six things we found out when we saw ETID in Camden:
