We want to bring you the best metal bands that the UK has to offer, so we spend our time outside of putting together our gigs, seeking out the next top quality acts that you have to see.
Below, you will find some of the acts we have had the fortune to have grace the Pandemonium Club stage, as well as some of the bands that we think are well worth a listen.

This release gathered praise from many industry professionals such as METAL HAMMER, KERRANG and POWERPLAY and at the time they were also only the 2nd unsigned band to have their music approved on sale in store at Virgin/Zavvi.
The band shot a music video for their track 'FOREVERMORE' which again gained them great exposure with Scuzz.com & Rockworld.TV with the video going straight to the 'top of the 'VOTED BEST' section over at Scuzz!

Formed in 1981 Anihilated are one of Britain's oldest thrash metal bands. They played a major part in the creation and early development of the British thrash metal scene.
Their music is renowned around the world and has influenced hundreds of musicians and bands who followed in their footsteps. The latest album 'Scorched Earth Policy' (2010) is now on sale, and a brand new album is currently in the making.
ANUBIS is a female fronted five piece Metal band from the West Midlands that was formed in 2007.
Their songs combine their influences into an eclectic blend of Classic Rock, Nu Metal, Instrumental Rock, Celtic tinged Acoustic melancholia and a touch of Middle Eastern spice.
Their lyrics cover subjects as diverse as schoolyard drug taking to mental illness/abuse to fairground phobias and The Pharaoh flying on his Magic Carpet. As well as the usual relationship stuff. Not all of the lyrics are serious!
What is serious is the high standard of musicianship and stagecraft thanks to classic rock veterans; Guitarist Simon Lees (ex Budgie), Bassist Pete Williamson (Space Rock Session Man) ; and the mesmerising Vocalist / keyboardist Sarah Co’burn. Providing kick-ass punch to the powerful sound is one of the UK’s most creative rock Drummers, Kev Bartlett. The most recent addition is Rhythm Guitarist Simon Haycock.
Anubis’ music can be heard all over the planet on countless radio stations. Their My Space player has logged well over 2 million plays thanks to the quality of the material on their debut album Sibuna and their four-track EP Avatar.
Anubis have completed their 2nd full studio album entitled Waking the Dead. This album has raised the bar even higher and is receiving outstanding acclaim from fans and press alike. Anubis have also released a LIVE Album recorded at Sonic Rock Solstice 2010
