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...
Hail, loyal Pandemoniums!
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!
The Pandemonium Club
Good Evening, loyal Pandemoniums!
As we trundle towards the Christmas and New Year Festivities, here at the Pandemonium Club, we have gathered our thoughts, brewed a cup of tea and contacted some of our chums to gather together the albums that have made their year.
Have a look at many a mad man's choices of this year in Metal in our articles page.
One more thing; we wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas, and hope that everyone has fun over the next couple of days!
Here's a news flash from symphonic metal geniuses, The Furious Horde; the band will be releasing a new video for their track 'For The Horde' on facebook this weekend, and one of our very own P Club co-founders, Colin, will be making an appearance in the vid!
For more information, pop over to The Furious Horde's facebook event page, and enjoy the show on Sunday 22nd December at 7:00 pm!
We have a pre Christmas treat for you lovely people; the Pandemonium Club is proud to announce that we have booked our first event of 2014, in Maidstone, Kent, on the 21st March!
For more information, come and have a look on our articles page:
Welcome back, dear Pandemonians!
This week's article has Tom reviewing his last festival of the year, Beermageddon.
Now in its second year, Beermageddon has had many of the acts that have played the P Club, also grace its stage including the likes of Beholder, Anihilated and Evil Scarecrow.
Have a read of Tom's (possibly hazy) recollections of a weekend with many of our favourite underground acts over on the Articles page to see how he got on!
Happy December, dear readers!
This month's Band of The Month is Divine Chaos.
This 5 piece band hailing from the South East, has been influenced by the likes of Metallica, Exodus, The Haunted and Carcass, and took time out from their touring schedule to have a chat with our very own Tom.
Go and have a gander on the Band of the Month page to see how he got on!
Hail, Pandemonians; I hope all is well in your part of the world!
The Pandemonium Club's own Tom's conclusion to his interview with DJ Valkyrie, is this week's article and you'll be able to find that on our articles page.
You may have also noticed that we mentioned that we now have a Twitter feed; feel free to join us on @ThePClubUK, and we will gladly reciprocate!
It's Monday, and that can only mean one thing, dear Pandemoniums; we have another article for your delectation!
The Pandemonium Club's own Tom has been a busy bunny, and has been chatting with friends far and wide for the site, and this week, he has been in conversation with one of our good friends across the pond, DJ Valkyrie, finding tasty bits of information for you lovely people.
Tom, being Tom, ended up with such a big interview that, even after editing, it's having to be posted across two weeks!
Take a look at Tom's interview with the ever fair DJ Valkyrie on the articles page right now....
What ho, dear readers, here we are at the start of the week with another entry in our series showcasing bands who are making waves in the Metal underground scene by their peers.
This installment of what we call The Chain, is a recommendation from the last entry, Melodic Death Metal Act Cryostorm, and you can see what has tickled their musical tastebuds over in our articles page here.
Welcome back, young Pandemoniums!
November's choice for Band of The Month is Canterbury's finest, Wretched Soul.
Regulars at the Pandemonium Club will already have witnessed this amazing up and coming band live a few times already, but for the uninitiated, Wretched Soul play what is quite simply, Heavy Metal, taking the best of many subgenres, and making it their own.
This month's Band of The Month article will serve both as an introduction to the those who haven't hear about the band out there, plus also an update on what they are up to at the moment.
Welcome back, loyal readers to our latest Monday article!
This week, we've been lucky enough to have had a chat with one of the Pandemonium Club's past performers, and tonight, we shall share the contents of our recent conversation!
Warlord UK last graced the P Club stage supporting Beholder in 2012, but have been busy touring and writing their follow up album to 2010's Evil Within.
'We Die As One' was released in August, and we thought it would be interesting to contact bassist and vocalist Mark White to discuss how recording an album in 2013 differs to 1996.
Take a look at our conversation with Warlord UK over in the articles page, here on the Pandemonium Club website.
Good Evening P Clubbers! How about kicking those Monday blues away with some more Metal madness from your Pandemonium chums?
Bored of your music collection?
Need to hear something new?
Crikey, I was only asking; of course I know you lovely readers have impeccable taste!
The Chain returns with a new recommendation, courtesy of our first Chain suggestion, Cambion.
In case you've forgotten, your can read the first link in The Chain here, however, if you'd like to see what's floating Cambion's boat, have a nosey at their choice on this week's edition of The Chain here.
Good Evening, loyal followers! It's Metal Monday once again, and you all know what that means, don't you? Yes, it's time for another article from the House of Pandemonium!
This week's piece has been lovingly crafted by our very own Pandemonium Club co-founder Tom, and are his musings on this year's Bloodstock Festival.
Gasp as he inbibes! Chuckle as he staggers around intoxicated! Weep, as he views acts - who have graced us with their presence at the Pandemonium Club - play the Sophie Lancaster stage at one of this fair country's best Metal Festivals!
Rust never sleeps, and neither does the Pandemonium Club!
Our latest in our new weekly articles is something we like to call The Chain.
In a nutshell, we've asked one of our P Club favourites what band is floating their boat at the moment, and to name a song that would introduce them nicely to you lucky Pandemonians.
'Is that it?' I hear you cry, and the answer is an emphatic no! We'll contact the band which has been earmarked, and ask them the same question, and with a bit o' luck, you'll be dinning on new music for a long, long time...
Hopefully by now you will have read about October's Band of The Month, the wonderful Training Icarus. If you haven't yet, you can find out about them here.
Want more? The band are playing at Gravesend's one and only Red Lion - home of many a raucous Pandemonium Club night featuring our hand picked favourites - and we would love you to come!
For more information, take a look at Training Icarus' event on Facebook and come join them for their album launch with previous Band of The Month Zocalo and P Club favourites Inner Fire.
After an enforced absence, Band of The Month makes a welcome return for the month of October.
Our second offering is Training Icarus. You can read more about this fantastic female fronted band from London and Kent over on the Pandemonium Club's Band of The Month page.
So, after another enforced nap (cuuurse you work!), work has begun to upload more articles onto our website for your perusal.
Here at The Pandemonium Club, we're pulling our finger out of our arse, and are going to share bits and bobs that we've been working on since our last update, and we'll be providing you with something to cast your eyes over every Monday, starting next week.
Around this time this time next Monday, we'll begin our weekly articles with October's Band of The Month; feel free to drop by!
Here's a jem of an interview with producing legend Chris Tsangarides, conducted by Top Rock Radio DJ and Pandemonium Club's compere extraordinaire Jim Beerman.
Here at the Pandemonium Club we have spent time working on a few changes to make your website experience of more pleasurable one.
London vs The World is the New way to find the bands you love, comparing unsigned from London with bands and musicians of similar genre with anywhere else in the world. The main plans are to build new fan bases as well as relationships between the two bands.
Another new development on the Pandemonium Club site is the Articles page. Periodically, we shall be plonking the metal musings of a madman, and our first article has been written by own very own Tom.
The menu items haven't been updated yet (sorry about that), but for now, you can read on Tom's little festival guide on the articles page here.
Pandemonium Club proudly presents our newest feature the Band Of The Month!
Our first offering is Zocalo, and you can read about this fine 5 piece London based band here.
Here's something we've been working on for a while now, which we hope you'll enjoy, a new feature on the Pandemonium Club website Band of The Month, which you'll be able to find by going over to the Bands page, and clicking on the banner.
Each month, we'll be showcasing a band we feel passionate about and our debut act will be uploaded tomorrow!
Back at the very first Pandemonium Club gig we were treated to a great opening set by Silas, we've had them back since and they have also played many bigger shows since. Last September saw the release of their mini album "World of Colour" which received many good reviews and is available via their facebook page.
The tour in support of this was delayed by a broken wrist but they are now in full swing with shows as far apart as Canterbury and Newcastle over the coming months. At the same time they are starting the writing process for their first full length album. At this very early stage of the writing process we have very little information on album title or release date but the guys hope to have things in the pipeline for the end of the year.
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!!!!!!
