I made my way to North London having not been to The Dome before, however, as soon as I left Tufnell Park Station knew I was in the right place, with artwork and band names you couldn’t read nor pronounce on t-shirts as well as proudly displayed inverted crucifixes.
This is one I was looking forward to— three bands who could legitimately headline their own shows and have done previously.
What’s better than an all-girl Japanese power metal band? Absolutely nothing, and that’s why Lovebites were not to be missed when they performed at the Underworld in Camden, London this week.
The temperature had taken a massive drop throughout the day, by night it was cold, so cold and the pale blue lights streaking up the Islington Assembly Hall walls made it somehow feel colder — quite fitting considering the main act are Norwegian.
