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.
Since Beholder's initial release "The Awakening" in 2009 which was praised by both media and fans, the band has been relentlessly touring in both the UK, Europe and Scandinavia and building a healthy army of support from increasingly fervent metal fans worldwide.
With the addition of Scott Taylor to the fold in 2011, as guitarist Simon Cliffe departed to focus on his own studio commitments, the band has enjoyed praise for their live shows and in early 2012 they embarked on a project to cement the new sound and build an album with power, intensity and the honest Beholder vibe, yet retaining the aggressive melody’s associated with the band.
