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...

Forever Never News 2012

Forever Never calls it a day.

Last Updated 2nd August 2012

And another quality band calls it a day. Media support is important, but not as important as working hard. If you're in a band and you want to get on then it's important that first and foremost you make sure you practice to the point you're ready EVERY time you go and play. Gig as much as you can, in as many places as you can. Staying in the same area all the time is not good enough if you want to progress. Contact radio stations etc and stay in touch. Loyalty works both ways. Treat the fans and other bands with respect. Band links are vitally important. Again, stay in touch.

If you are LUCKY, then you might catch the eye of someone "important" and then the mags might take notice. You might get checked out by someone who will champion your cause.

Unfortunately for Forever Never, despite doing all the hard work, it didn't work out for them.

But success won't just land on your plate. You might get lucky, but the harder you work the luckier you will get!

You can find more infomation at their facebook page here.

Martin Walkyier News

Martin Walkyier's Viking Funeral Festival

Last Updated 25th June 2012

Having become severely disillusioned with the current UK metal music scene, world-renowned Pagan lyricist and front-man Martin Walkyier (The Clan Destined, ex-Skyclad & ex-Sabbat) has decided to organise his very own all-day Heathen music festival entitled "Martin Walkyier's Viking Funeral" at the Nottingham Irish Centre for Saturday September the 22nd 2012.

Martin Walkyier is widely accredited as being the proud 'pagan-god-father' of underground British heavy metal; the true inspiration behind Cradle Of Filth and also as the instigator of the Bloodstock Open Air festival. Despite all these truly noble efforts Martin has generally been ignored by the vast majority of Britain's metal music press - a fact which has driven him to abject despair upon numerous occasions.

The way he currently looks at it is that it's far better to go out with a massive bang (!!!) than a with a feeble whimper, so any bands out there who desire to appear at this event should contact him ASAP either via Facebook or www.theclandestined.com
