Gig Review: Beast In Black / Firewind – Islington Assembly Hall, London (20th February 2023)

Traveling to the venue was a bit strange as it was a school night and I didn’t see any other metal fans until I was standing outside the Islington Assembly Hall.

Sabaton Open Air 2018 – Day 2 Review

Today we saw the larger Heroes Stage in use, with Beast in Black the first band we saw treading the boards after Dalriada had played earlier.
