Thinking of seeing Clutch in November. Anyone seen them before, worth a look?

Not seen them myself but heard a lot of good things - worth the admission price I would think.

Bloodbath playing the Electric Ballroom in Camden on the 18th December - tix acquired instantly! I had thought they would never play a proper gig (i.e. not a festival appearance) but they are, and on my back door - happy days...

I'm going to see King Crimson next Tuesday and I'm starting to get super excited already. Been waiting for this for months.

Then at the end of the month it's Steven Wilson at the Royal Albert Hall. Proggiest month ever.

Well that was probably one of the best gigs I've ever been to. Three drummers seems like a needless indulgence but it really sounds immense live when they all play slightly different polyrhythms before crashing back in time with one another. Gavin Harrison is a total beast too, his solo during their final track had everyone gawping in awe.

Seriously, not sure what will ever top this.

Steven Wilson at the Albert Hall this Tuesday. Needless to say, amazing stuff. Guthrie Govan, Theo Travis, Ninet and Gavin Harrison all as guests absolutely killed it.

Not having much luck with gigs.

Supposed to see Abbath a while back, and the fucker cancelled it and rebooked for January next year. No big deal you may think, until you find out that he was being fellated by Metal Hammer on a noddy photo-tour of London on the day of the gig, plus there was no notification at all of the change in dates. I found out by accident looking for reviews of any prior gigs on his tour.

Then yesterday I get home to find out Opeth at the London Palladium this weekend is now Opeth at the Theatre Royal. Again, no issue you would think except my new seats rather than Row A of the circle are now Row K.

Not happy.

It's... Totally a gig. Christopher Brett Bailey's show has drone metal as part of it, anyway. Spoken word things are gigs!

Recommend if you like swearing and loud guitars.

So Opeth last night - and despite the seats being further back than our Palladium tickets it was brilliant. Mikael was on top form, riffing with the crowd, responding to a shouted joke request for Freebird by playing it (well, the first few bars anyhow), teasing the encores by listening to what people were shouting, kicking off the song, then stopping the band after about 1 verse.

Sound was great, when I saw them earlier this year the keyboards were way too high in the mix at the cost of guitar sound, but they had it spot on for this gig and the acoustics of the Theatre Royal did not disappoint.

They played Ghost Reveries in full for the first set, then a selection of other songs for the second. This included songs from Heritage and Pale Communion, albums I am not a huge fan of but live they work so much better than on vinyl.

Got home gone 1am, couldn't get to sleep, so now typing this at work feeling like death (metal) warmed over.

Still, great night, and only 2 weeks to the Deathcrusher Festival (Carcass + Obituary + Napalm Death + Voivod + Herod) which should be a blast.

Myself and my son Alex are headed out to Manchester Academy on the 12th of Feb next year to go and watch Hurts. It will be the second time I've seen them in concert now as the first time made my him very jealous I always promised him his first gig once he hit the age of 15. He's a big fan of them too. :mrgreen:
