Ahead of this year’s Be Prog! My Friend festival in Barcelona, read about and listen to Persefone, Baroness, Pain of Salvation, A Perfect Circle and Oranssi Pazuzu, the five bands appearing on the Friday night.
It’s great to see two British bands really pushing on to bigger things, and hopefully it won’t be too long before they both see a return on their efforts.
…the show was (for the most part) up there with anything I’ve seen over for a long while. The band were on great form, the crowd were lapping it up, and the connection grew stronger as the show went on.
All in all this was a brilliant gig, with all 3 bands playing solid sets, full of energy, riffs, sweat and rock!
Sunday’s Desertfest ended the glorious weekend with Monolord’s huge Doom stamping enthusiasm and Hawkwind’s space riding grooves.
“I have never felt as happy as I have in this place…” exclaims Gwenno Saunders as she takes to the stage, and with a crowd hanging off her every word, who can blame her.
Womanby Street is not the be all and end all of alternative music in Cardiff but it is undeniably a truly special place and this event showcased what makes it so dear to the hearts of music fans in the city. It seems like it shouldn’t work but by golly it does. I doubt anyone left disappointed by the first Cardiff Psych and Noise Fest.
Ttng brought a wonderful weekend of music to a close. I feel like I’ve possibly seen the band more times than my own reflection in a mirror but have always enjoyed myself thoroughly. . .
Each member of Epica is engaging, talented and ready to put on a good show for their fans. Epica departed London that night to head back to their home country of the Netherlands for their thousandth show, and with performances like this, it is really no wonder that fans keep coming back for more.
Canterbury riffs giants lead the way in a night of extraordinary talent.
There was only one place I wanted to be on Sunday of Desertfest, and that was The Roundhouse for the what was festivals biggest venue and suitably starry cast list to date…
We headed for Lizardfest 2018 on the 15th of May, which took place in Gaukurinn, a well-known rock club in the heart of Reykjavik to experience some amazing bands.
The rising heat and volume continued at Saturday’s Desertfest.
This year’s Desertfest opened with a spoilt-for-choice line-up for the hordes of rockers and metalheads who gathered upon North London’s Camden.
On the late May Bank Holiday Cardiff’s beloved Womanby Street will play host to some of the best noisy acts in the UK today, including Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Part Chimp, Thought Forms, No Spill Blood, Ghold, Cattle and many more. We’ve dug through the line-up and picked out some expected highlights from what’s expected to be an insane weekend of sublime noise.
A clash of genres at the Kasbah. Marmozets deliver emphatically in Coventry
