Festival Review: Power Metal Quest Fest – The Asylum, Birmingham (18th September 2019)

On Saturday I headed to The Asylum in Birmingham for Power Metal Quest Fest - an ever-expanding all-day festival celebrating some of the finest power, prog, viking and battle-infused heavy metal that the scene has to offer.

Interview: Srdjan Bilic and Sergio Girón of Primitai

Prior to Primitai's performance at Manchester's Academy 3 on their recent tour with Wolf, I had the opportunity to catch up with Serj and Sergio from Primitai to see how things have been going since we last spoke.

Triaxis & Primitai / Titan Breed / Scintilla – Ivory Blacks, Glasgow (10th December 2016)

Ivory Blacks is not one of my normal venues I must admit. In contrast to the vast majority of other venues I've visited this year, I've only been there 3 times this year and those times have been at the beginning, middle and now the end of the year. It's not a bad venue and … Continue reading Triaxis & Primitai / Titan Breed / Scintilla – Ivory Blacks, Glasgow (10th December 2016)
