O2 Academy Islington is medium sized venue that could host over 600 people, so for me it was quiet a pleasant surprise to find out that Graveyard are playing there.. never thought they are so big.
The opening band were the Swedes from Spiders. Have to admit I've enjoyed their show.. never listen to them before but miss Ann-Sophie is such a energetic appearance. Always moving on the stage, dancing, playing the maracas, add to that an amazing voice - and you have the recipe for a good rock band.
This was not one of those metal gigs that I usually attend, and despite the name Graveyard - which would make you believe that they are a black metal band or a death metal band - that's not the case at all. They are this amazing classic heavy rock band with some blues influences.
