Gig Review: Lords of the Land at SWG3, Glasgow (6th April 2019)

Arriving in the middle of the festival, SWG3 is looking pretty packed between the Galvanisers stage and the TV Studio (converted to a makeshift bier halle/merch market) for an afternoon of the finest extreme metal.

MetalDays 2018: Day 5

A quick band round-up today as I managed to rattle round all three stages a couple of times. I didn't get to the festival as early as I'd hoped as I was writing up the last couple of days' events!
