Where the hell have these guys been hiding?????Really stunning live performance that totally blew everybody away.Great songs delivered with precision and excellent musicianship.Evil vocals and doomy lyrics mixed up with good Heavy metal.
You have to check them out!!

VIRUS
Coke may have been ill tonight but you wouldnt have noticed as he lead his fearsome foursome into a blistering set of classics and newbies!Tonight the band seemed happy on stage, sure there were a few mistakes but Cokes guitar sounded better than the last gig, due to better gear i think, and despite the fact that the bass was "DI'd" as the bass head over heated during the previous set the overall sound and performance was right on it.

Each time i see Virus they seem to grow in confidence and are shaping up to prove that their "Lunacy" can reclaim a place in the hearts of the metal world.

FERAL
With no shovels in sight the band decided to play guitars instead, which as it turns out was the better option because not only do they play them with the skill and style of musicians who have been playing for 20 years but shovels are very difficult to tune.

Another blinding set, with jokes a plenty inbetween the songs, just all round entertainment and delivered with such talent that its no wonder they have risen in just 7 months to the level that has the likes of Adrian Erlandsson (At The Gates/Cradle Of Filth/Paradise Lost/Nemhain) to remark "Who is this Feral i have been hearing so much about?".Watch this space!!!!

Madness reared its head tonight with a frantic version of 'Truth Is Lies' with guest vocals from Jaz (Man Of Kin) and a chaotic version of Motorhead's 'Orgasmatron' with vocals from Feral;s original vocalist, a man who for those of you old enough to remember whose stage presence was like Arthur Brown on acid!!

MAN OF KIN
What better way to get aquainted with their stunning debut album 'Lock & Load' than to have the band perform it in its entireity,'Primitive' still stands out as the ultimate crowd pleaser and erupts the venue.
They ended their set with a covers medley, i tell you the place was dripping with sweat, you'd think the gig was in a turkish bath house.Just a perfect end to a perfect evening.
