Camden Town smells. In the sunshine, it often smells very bad indeed. On Bank Holiday Weekends, it often smells even worse than usual, thanks to all the spilled cider and puddles of drying vomit. smelled something when he caught Of Mice & Men’s headline show there just before Easter, but was it the smell of success, or just the pong of stale hype?

Nu Metalcore is definitely happening. Why?

September 19th, 2013

There’s a new (nu?) trend afoot in the world of emerging metalcore bands and that trend is similar in its makeup to nu metal when it came out.

Did you know that Asking Alexandria are one of the biggest British bands in America today? Their recent second album, Reckless and Relentless went in at #9 in the main charts but back in their homeland they’re only playing Electric Ballroom. That’s still pretty good though so seeing as fellow Yorkshiremen, While She Sleeps and Yanks, Of Mice & Men were in support, we toddled down to Camden to check it all out.
