When influential Italian screamo-types, Raein, announced they would be playing their first UK shows for over six years, longterm fan Tom Doyle made sure he was one of the lucky few that crowded into the Old Blue Last to be reminded as to just why they’re such a big deal.

Six things we learnt when Raein (finally!) came back to London…

It’s been a while since we’ve put on a gig so we figured we’d put the most exciting young bands that we’ve seen recently onto one bill. Headlining is awesome Midlands experimental hardcore quintet, History Of The Hawk. They’re supported by a London-based triumvirate of awesome: doom-mongers Throne will be getting heads banging before them while atmospheric black metallers Cult Cinema and brand new prog metallers Empress will be opening the night.

Sunday Slaylist: Adios, Kerouac….

Next Saturday, one of our favourite British bands of the last few years, Kerouac, will be playing their final live show. When they announced their decision to split back in April, we went and drew a big red circle around 07 July on our calendars, as there’s no way in Hell that we’re going to not be there, screaming till our lungs hurt, and giving the band the send off they so richly deserve. But until then, we figured the best use of this week’s Sunday Slaylist was to showcase just why we rate this band so highly.

Thoe UK leading thrash revivalists, Evile, are playing a charity show in London down at the Old Blue Last on Tuesday next week. It’s free entry, but since it’s a charity show, they’ll be taking donations on the door for the British Lung Foundation. That seems entirely reasonable to us – after all, what kind of prick goes to a free charity show and moans about making a donation on the door? That’s right, no-one, that’s who.

On Thursday, just when we were gearing up for a four day weekend of sitting in the park and drinking cider, Kerouac decided to announce that they were splitting up. While this news is terrible, we’re kinda glad we didn’t hear it 48 hours ago, as the feelings of sadness and disappointment this news has brought about in us would surely have soured the whole of our Easter holiday, rather than just half of it.

Thankfully, however, the band have given us a sole ray of sunshine to get us out of this black mood, by confirming one final London show before they finally call it quits.
