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...
Beermageddon have added three more of the country's up and coming talent to their festival in August 2013.
Past Pandemonium Club luminaries Fallen Fate and Anihilated are being joined by this Saturday's headliners Iron Knights, recent P Club debutants Buff-Riff Stampede and County Durham quintet Old Corpse Road.
What fantastic acts there are, and we're still in 2012!
Due to complications using the name Stuka Squadron, our favourite WWII German vampire fighter pilots have been reborn as Iron Knights.
More information can be found on the soon to be replaced Stuka Squadron website, but worry not, they will still be appearing this Saturday for their inaugural performance under their new name!
Congratulations to recent Pandemonium Club debutants Bull-Riff Stampede, who will be playing next year's Wacken festival!
Good job guys!

After what seems like a long wait (although in reality it hasn't been that long) Kremated's VERY eargerly awaited debut album - Total Warfare is READY!!!!!!
You can order it from their website and it is well worth the pennies. This mob burst into action earlier this year and it looked like they had been together for years. That's is how you make an impact. No pussy footing about, these blokes hit the stage like a bull mastiff hits bacon. 200 miles per hour and HUNGRY!!!!!
They will be opening for Fallen Fate at the Red Lion on 19th October and have a few shows before then. So if you love your thrash delivered the good old fashioned way get in front of these guys whenever you can.
Yeahhhh!! And now Kremated have their website up and running too.
Check 'em out and get some thrashing done, and don't forgot you can see those scamps supporting Fallen Fate in October.
Check out one of our favourite Symphonic Black Metal acts, The Furious Horde's new website!!
The Pandemonium Club's mate Kerry has just let us know she is setting up a new website to help UK metal bands, and it will be up and running soon.
You can find Malicious here.
Kremated are looking for a bassist. If you like your thrash old school, dirty and punky, are very committed and professionally minded, then check them out. This mob have hit the scene like a bull rhino and if you can match their energy and commitment then you'll fit in nicely.
To get in touch with the band, jump on their Facebook page here.
Don't forget, that you'll be able to see Kremated in October, supporting the mighty Fallen Fate.
Project Alpha TV went live just over 2 weeks ago. It has had 6000 hits. Well done Wolfie and Clare. It's a great place to look at interviews from Bloodstock and other Metal events. Have a look and get the latest scoops straight from the bands themselves.
See for yourself here.
Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves when we realise just how many fantastic people we have met through doing P Club. Here are 2 of the finest, Jim Beerman (Top Rock Radio)and Wolfie (from TBFM), having a chat at Beermageddon. Gotta love these guys, their hearts are definitely in the right place and you never get an ounce of rubbish from either of them.
Watch the interview here.

For all of you fledgling bands, who want to make it big, read this excellent article. It's important.
If you didn't get a ticket, you ain't getting in. SOLD OUT. And it's gonna be FAAAAANTASTIC!
Featuring former members of White Wizzard, Biomechanical and The More I See; British classic heavy metal band MONUMENT unleashed their debut EP 'Rock The Night' on the 6th of August 2012.
Comprising of 5 stunning tracks, fuelled by massive twin guitar attack, catchy hooks and powerful tenor vocals; the title track features a solo guest performance from Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner.
Watch the music lyric video for Fatal Attack here
The band coincide the release of their EP with a special show at Islington's O2 Academy, supporting the acclaimed DIO DISCIPLES. Monument frontman Peter Ellis says "It's true privilege to open for the band of my late, great hero Ronnie James Dio! Bring on the good times!"
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.

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
There is a strict 450 limit for this and tickets are going FAST! Buy them now B4 it is too late! 3 days of Metal, Free Camping, Real Bogs, Real Ale, £2 a pint and a Bank Holiday Monday to get home and ease your neck muscles! All this for £30 a ticket!!
