Abgott @ The Unicron

Second gig of the year. It was a good gathering at the Unicorn, ran into many familiar faces, good night out for socializing and listening to good music. 
Got there just when they guys from Ancient Ascendant started. A promising death metal band, on their third album, with a lot to offer. 

As I told you in a previous post, Saturday's night gig was all about seeing the guys from Abgott again. But to be fair I think I've enjoyed the first gig more. Something was just off Saturday night. I can't tell if it was something related to the drums or the sound system, or all the testosterone mosh pitting around - which is a good sign at a metal gig, but not so good when you are a photographer, and people start bumping into you- but for sure this gig wasn't as good as the one in November.

Stained Skin @ The Unicorn

Been so lazy and slow this year.. still have to edit photos from the Christmas period... still... have to share with you Saturday's gig. 
It's was a good way to start the year.. first gig of the year at the Unicorn in Camden.. Unfortunately missed the first bands..caught up in the redecoration project of the room. But we made it for the final band: Stained Skin. A heavy metal cover band - brilliant. It was so good fun listening at all the classics: Run to the Hills, Holy Diver... and many more. 
Anntonia - the lead singer had such a good presence and an amazing powerful voice.
They are a new band, just formed December last year, this was their first gig, and I have to say it was exceptional. I liked the fact that everyone got involved: the guitarists talked to the audience as well, plus a few jokes here and there, truly very entertaining!! So check them out.. I am sure we will hear more of them in the future.
