DUSTEROID
Awesome doom/stoner rock of the finest order!
The power that comes through from this trio is stunning, just think Cathedral/St.Vitus and blam you have it.

Some brilliant guitar solos mix with intricate bass playing and some great Keith Moon style drumming.

I.C.O.N
Returning for a second time to london and this time armed with their debut album as well.
The northern metallers put on a headline show great riffs and soaring vocals, this is NWOTM at its finest, this nods back with respect to the glory days of heavy metal when frontmen flicked the horns and took their music to the audience.
These guys deliver 100% pure metal entertainment with some amazing songs that get the crowd going, guitarist scott not content with the stage takes his headbanging riffage right into the audience.

STAND UP GUY
Irish band who have been making headways on the mainland with a mini tour, ended up in the gaff and blew the roof off with their unique take on metal.
They pulled off a 40 minute set with ease and won over the whole audience, there was great melody in their songs and some awesome metal moments.

Wow were these guys on form tonight, a much more aggressive set than the last time i saw them
and bassist joe seemed somewhat possessed and kept jumping into the audience.
Its a good mixture of metalcore influence and well constructed rock songs, hey any vocalist who wears a Doors t-shirt is alright in my books !

HOSTILE DAWN
Heavy fucking metal with a capital "B" for beer.
The lads know how to have fun and joke in between songs, they are infectious, the music is in your face hardcore metal with shouty vocals and the quality is uncompromising.
They are masters of their craft and perform to high standard not normally associated with this genre.
