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. Once inside though, it felt almost tropical in comparison.
The artwork on this record is very telling.
With two albums under their belts, Decade certainly knows a thing or two about producing incredible British rock. Highwire Magazine caught up with Alex Sears (lead singer) and Connor Fathers (guitarist) ahead of their support slot for Deaf Havana at Rock City, Nottingham.
Once upon a time, 1996 specifically, my favourite band in the whole world broke up and I was devastated. The Cavalera brothers had gone their separate ways and Sepultura was no more. Yes, yes, I know they continued with Derrick Green as lead singer but as far as I was concerned, the band was dead.
Electric Wizard was known as a doom metal band in times past, but the latest album has them going on more of a hard rock-cum-doom-cum-stoner adventure.
First of all, I need to talk about the album artwork. Cannibal Corpse is notorious for their early album artwork, particularly their first three records which the artwork was banned in many countries. Even now they’re still prohibited from playing some of their early songs in certain places.
As I arrived at the Electric Ballroom, the queue was snaking along Camden High Street but within a short time it was moving along swiftly much to the delight of fans wearing only t-shirts sporting their favourite Cradle of Filth artwork.

Some might dare to describe The Horrors as a bit old hat these days.
Turnover live at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.
Alvvays live at The Roxy in Los Angeles.
Following up their debut My Love Is Cool, late last month Wolf Alice released their second album, Visions of a Life.
Superfood have well and truly defeated all odds.
The band on everybody’s lips right now is none other than Pale Waves, a delightfully talented four-piece from Manchester.
With how successful their debut album WhiteNoise was, the stakes were high for PVRIS when it came to writing and recording the follow-up. No band wants to fall into the so-called “sophomore slump” so PVRIS have been hard at work, resulting in the highly-anticipated All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell.
As Kesha releases her long-anticipated fourth album Rainbow, onlookers are reminded of a phoenix rising from the ashes. The awful things she has faced have been no secret, and yet she remains as determined as ever to show the world who she really is— not who she was forced to be before, but instead her true, unapologetic self.
