Break The Chains Festival @ Temple of Boom, Leeds

24-26/8/2018

Well, why not try to squeeze another batch of bands in before the end of the summer?  This new festival had dropped like a bomb when announced earlier in the year, to the extent that I took time out of Desertfest London in May to sit on a kerb outside a pub with a pint and await the allotted ticket sale time, grabbing a couple before it sold out in minutes, then returning to the fray.  With a big smile at the prospect of a phenomenal line-up of legendary grind, hardcore, and extreme metal, the underground organisers in Leeds really have the contacts and the cahones to put together something special.

Like last week’s old skool punk gig, tonight was another trip beyond the realms of my hardcore comfort zone and into the pit of unfathomable doom.

Adversity, the random trials of life strengthening community resolve to strive their way to a better situation. That was a reason why the 1 in 12 club was set up in response to the wonderful success the Tories were making of parts of the country in the 1980’s and what a perfect setting for localish crust legends Doom to host this festival.
