Brujeria Shine In An International Metal Gathering

On Friday the 14th (probably unlucky for some,) two of death metal's cult favourites, Cryptopsy and Brujeria, performed a co-headlining show at The Dome in Tufnell Park, North London, joined in their venture by Brazilian thrash trio Nervosa and Australian technical death metal outfit, Psycroptic. The Dome itself is a solid venue, especially for housing metal shows, comprising mostly of a large hall, with the usual club features of a cloakroom and smoking area. Unfortunately, because of renovations at the Tufnell Park underground station (which is literally across the street from The Dome,) the best option was to get off at Kentish Town and walk from there, which is only a ten minute straight walk. It's a venue well worth checking out if there's something on that fits your taste, and on this night, The Dome was catering to those of us with a taste for the extreme.

First up, at only half past six in the evening, was the all female thrash metal group, Nervosa, arguably one of the most exciting bands coming through at the moment. It was their first time visiting Great Britain and they were clearly keen to both showcase their talents and win over new fans, which they most certainly did on the night. Though the crowd was relatively sparse when they took to the stage, Nervosa played with a frenzied passion that encompassed both the anger that drives their creativity and the love of metal that taking them to new places. As more people entered the venue, they found themselves gravitating to the stage to see this exhilarating three piece, mostly performing music from their debut full length, "Victim of Yourself." The album itself is a great listen, and songs such as, "Death" and "Into Moshpit" sound even heavier in a live environment and it took no more than two songs for the whole crowd to be converted, with more being won over from start to finish. It was a great way for the band to introduce themselves in the UK before heading out on their headline run, which is a must see for those who like their thrash tinged with death metal. A fantastic way to start the show. More...
