News

Whether we're putting on a new event, we have spotted a gig or festival that may have tickled our fancy or one of our favourite bands has something exciting to say, you will find it here.

This page is split into three parts:

Top Stories contains anything we think would be of interest to you, both in the Pandemonium Club and out there in the rest of Metal-dom.

Any older news will then be moved onto Pandemonium Club News, which will normally include up and coming shows, price announcements or band added to bills. Anything that will enrich your Pandemonium Club Experience!

Finally, our Other News section will include anything else we think may be of interest, such as news about bands we love or event announcements from some of our chums.

If you have something that you want to tell the rest of our lovely readers, drop us a line, and if the powers that be deem your article to be in the Pandemonium interest, well, I'm sure that something can be arranged...

A Look at... 2014 Festivals Part 2 and hiatus...

Last Updated 10th February 2014

Hello loyal PClubbers.

Writing this note is tinged with disappointment. As regulars will have seen on our facebook page, after a difficult time, we have had to cancel our return gig in Maidstone due to events beyond our control. As a result, we are going to take a break from the action for a while to lick our wounds and plan our next steps. Fear not as during this time, you'll still see our musings on facebook, but our website and live show activity will be on hiatus for now.

While we rest and recuperate, Tom has completed his guide to the festival events this year, which you can find here.

On behalf of all of us here at the Pandemonium Club website, thank you all for your support, and we hope to be back soon.

Good evening Pandemonians!

We love seeing bands live, and have been around the country to see some of our favourites. As you'll know, one of the best ways of seeing your favourite bands and treat yourselves to new acts is to go to one of the many festivals which are dotted around the UK and beyond.

The P Club's Tom has been doing his homework and swotting up on some of the many festivals which will be at your fingertips this year, however as it's such a big undertaking, this article will be split across two parts.

For Tom's choice from now to July, head over to the Pandemonium Club's Article page for his musings...

Hail P Clubbers! How about kicking those Monday blues away with some more Metal madness from your Pandemonium chums?

The Chain returns with a new recommendation, our first of 2014.

In case you've forgotten, The Chain is where we have asked a band for a recommendation of an act they'd like to recommend. In turn, we'll get their suggestion and so on.

For our last article of 2013, we have a contribution from a US DJ who, like us, loves to support the underground scene. You can read Roalt from Metal Meltdown's top three albums of 2013 on the articles page.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who have contributed to the articles we have been working on since the end of September, and in particular, Tom at the Pandemonium Club who has been helping me with writing the articles that have been posted on the website. Incidentally, if you would like to submit an article for us to consider uploading onto the website, feel free to contact us about this or any other constructive suggestions on improving the site via direct message on the Pandemonium Club's Twitter feed.

Finally, thank you all for your support this year, and we hope that we are keeping it interesting for you to keep coming back to our website and social media feeds. Feel free to tell your family, friends, pets and anyone who cares about Metal to 'like' us on facebook or follow us on Twitter! Although there were no shows for 2013, your numbers on facebook and Twitter have been steadily increasing over the year, and we have already planned our return to putting on shows with our first event in March 2014, which we hope you'll be there to join us.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and all the best wishes to you all for a mighty fine 2014!

Beermaggeddon 2013

Last Updated 11th July 2013

The Pandemonium Club is very proud to once again be working to help promote Beermageddon 2013.

After the success of the first ever Beermageddon festival, the go-ahead was given for not 1 but 2 more in the following years. With that in mind, Beermageddon 2013 is looking to be an even bigger success even before the full line-up is announced. A bargain price of £38 for 3 days of the best British bands including camping and parking has seen a lot of interest in this year’s festival. The line-up this year once again includes some of the best British bands who have played much larger festivals such as Bloodstock. All of this, in a festival that is small enough and friendly enough for you to be able to enjoy a beer with some of the bands after they’ve finished their set, no queues for a signing tent that you’re rushed through.

The success of the first ever Beermageddon started with the tickets selling out and during the festival we were treated to amazing sets from the likes of Evil Scarecrow, Fallen Fate, Imperial Vengeance, Warlord UK, Rezinwolf and Wretched Soul. After the bands had finished the party could continue thanks to DJ Hybrid playing the night away. Beermageddon’s success was highlighted in the nominations it received in the festival awards for "best new festival", "best small festival", "best grass roots festival" and "best toilets". Add to these nominations some great reviews and a very happy organiser. Even before the end of the weekend the next Beermageddon was being lined up on this success.

Not long after the success of last year, the announcements for this year started; there was a change of venue which has also increased the capacity and onsite facilities. The band announcements soon started and then the ticket sales took off. Regular updates to the line-up have increased ticket sales and it is again heading towards being another sell out before all of the bands have been announced. For fans tickets, the full line-up and any other information please click here to visit the Beermageddon website, but you need to be quick as there are less than 50!!!!!!
