Lawnmower Deth Host The Greatest Christmas Party

Since their return to the stage in 2009, Lawnmower Deth has established a reputation among a younger generation of British headbangers as one of the most fun live acts going. Having made no less than six appearances at the famous Download festival, Lawnmower Deth has become one of the most beloved names in retro British thrash once more, perhaps only eclipsed by Onslaught. The group has also become known for hosting annual Christmas shows and last year saw them put on a real treat for old school fans as they were joined by fellow thrash veterans Xentrix and Solitary.

Kicking things off was Lancashire lads Solitary. Formed in 1994 and releasing their first full length, "Nothing Changes" four years later, the band were greeted by a modest sized audience when they took to the stage.

Clutch Bassist Discusses "Book Of Bad Decisions"

For nearly thirty years now, Maryland rockers Clutch has made a name for themselves by putting out nothing but high quality music. With their mix of southern rock, heavy metal and good time attitude, they can perhaps best be described as "The world's greatest bar band." Their talent and popularity has led them to worldwide success, appearing at some of Europe's biggest metal festivals and selling out venues all over the globe.

One such sell out show occured in Bristol, in the south west of England last month, where Clutch were joined by duos Inspector Cluzo and The Picturebooks.
