Sunday Slaylist: Burn Out Festival 2013

July 7th, 2013

Burn Out Festival Slaylist Thrash Hits

A few years ago, the UK festival scene kind of imploded. Industry experts said there were just too many events trying to compete for the same slices of pie – there was only so many festivals that punters could afford to go to. Well, the situation has changed a bit since then, with smaller, more localised festivals popping up to fill the void left by the absence of some of major players in the festival circuit.

Step forward Burn Out Festival.

“What is Metal?”, by Dale Butler from Malefice

June 28th, 2012

Dale Butler from Malefice Thrash Hits

Earlier this year, we were minding our own business over on Twitter when we notice Dale Butler from Malefice kicking up a rage over the attitudes of certain quarters of the UK metal scene. Never ones to turn down the opportunity for some good ol’ fashioned shit-stirring, we dropped Dale an email and asked him whether he fancied writing about what had got him so angry with a few more words than 140 characters would allow. Take it away, Dale….

Remember ten years ago when the British metal scene was alive and kicking with bands like Raging Speedhorn, Pitchshifter and Stampin’ Ground storming stages nationwide? It may not have lasted that long but you have to admit the UK scene has seen some drastic improvement over recent years. We thought we’d head down to Islington Academy and bang our heads to some homegrown talent.

February 8th, 2011

With a new, eagerly-awaited album on the way, Malefice came to Camden. Not being a *complete* cretin, Tom Dare went along to bear witness.

By now, you should be aware of how stellar a live band Malefice are. So it’s absolutely no surprise that tonight, in front of their own crowd, they are suitably stunning. Familiarity does not mean we did not learn anything tonight, however. As well as terrible cases of metal neck, here’s what we took from tonight.

Live: Arch Enemy @ Kentish Town Forum – Saturday 27 November 2010

November 30th, 2010

Remember that volcanic ash cloud that balls’d up every plane flight in Western Europe earlier this year? Tom Dare does – the bloody thing stopped Arch Enemy coming to town. Last weekend he busted down to their rescheduled gig.

I have a dream. That one day, rock writers may go to a gig at The Kentish Town Forum and not bitch about sound problems. That every band will come on and sound crystal clear and at a respectable volume. That day is not today, however – and is probably further away than the day The Horned One toddles off to work driving a snow plough whistling ‘I Feel Pretty’ – but most of the bands come as close to overcoming these problems as you could really ask of them.
