Steel Panther – Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith – LIVE REVIEW

Animal print spandex, neon guitars, bandanas everywhere and lots and lots of boobs.

Cradle of Filth – O2 Academy, Oxford – LIVE REVIEW

Formed in Suffolk in 1991, Cradle of Filth have explored and conquered the varied realms of metal. Last year, their 26th as a band, they hit home ground once again stopping off at Oxford’s O2 Academy in support of new album Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay.   From its album artwork to its lyrical themes, Cryptoriana heavily emanates the Victorian era’s obsession with gothic horror – an enchantment the band have long shared.
