  • With members of Death Worship, Thorybos, and Bloody Vengeance.

    A worthy weekend was spent in the service of Subterranean Manifestation III; an uncompromising all-day assault of Death, Black and especially War Metal in the capital. With the show itself magnificently arranged by Subterranean Promotions, I was drafted in for the essential duty of delivering the artists to and from the airport and venue. Driving…

  • Scattered sparsely along the A1 and elsewhere, OK Diners are a reasonably recent addition to the roadside repast. Offering a British take on the American Diner experience, the kitsch 1950s decor is matched with piped Rock ‘n’ Roll and a sense of novelty nostalgia.  Behind the neon and chrome facade, a sincere wholesomeness pervades the…

  • Diocletian, Trivax, Blood Chalice, Gorgonvomit. Oslo Hackney, London. Tuesday 30th April 2024

    The lineup for the London show has locked in nicely, with kudos to Morbid Angle for curating such a barbaric bill. Joining DIOCLETIAN and TRIVAX on stage we have BLOOD CHALICE (FI) and GORGON VOMIT (UK). A stacked bill for a Tuesday, so make sure to turn up early for an evening of apocalyptic excess!…

  • Ponte del Diavolo - Fire blades from the Tomb

    With all the kerfuffle going on, I neglected to honour the long-awaited debut album from Torino’s Ponte del Diavolo – “Fire blades from the Tomb” A unique miscela of Doom Metal, Black Metal, and more than a smattering of Darkwave. With many surprises along the way, this all-too short album culminates with a crushing Nick…

  • Oliver Reed as Urbain Grandier in The Devils (1971, dir. Ken Russell)

    I’ve taken some time to collect my thoughts on the recent accusations levelled against my band and bandmates, despite fervent demands that I make an immediate statement of disassociation. I will not be rushed by those on the periphery who have offered no other interest in my presence than spiteful gossip. I’ll spare repeating the…

  • Allen Brickworks, Halifax - Graffiti reading “Alien”

    Although Tour Management has taken up most of my time of late, progress continues on the sci-fi short / music video I’ve been working on. With the storyboard locked down and approved by the relevant people, I can now scout out suitable locations to film the real thing. Located near Halifax, Allen Brickworks was established…

  • Diocletian - Nexian March

    Much gratitude to the many promoters and venues who’ve already been in contact to take on this spring’s DIOCLETIAN UK tour. We’re reviewing the offers over the weekend and will get back in touch with everyone once we’ve hammered out the routing. In the meantime, an opening salvo from new album “Inexorable Nexus”, out this…

  • This was never going to be an easy tour. Trouble started once the announcement was made, with a clandestine call to cancel one of the shows leaving me on the backfoot towards finding a replacement. Having support bands become less available than hoped also threw some surprises my way. With energies devoted to resolving the…

  • “No hate to Scream & Shake Horror Bar or Hot Pink Sewage, but mentors acted out of line tonight, flashed ass and pubes at an 18 year old, and laughed about it afterwards, and had to be told to piss off multiple times King’s of sleaze indeed, sleaze bags”

  • It’s been a frantic few weeks pulling everything together for the MENTORS tour, with complete line-ups only secured as the New Year ticked into being. An exhausting endeavour, although I’m never one to back away from such challenge. Given timing and circumstance, I knew this wouldn’t be an easy ride. Cancellations and complaints forced swift…

  • Fully reflecting the contemplative spirit of 2023’s waning hours, I look back upon a successful twelve months with HeathenStorm Productions and the bands I’ve had privilege to work alongside. Doing my part for old friends and UK scene stalwarts has always been one aspect of why I do what I do. But beyond that, it’s…
