A good mix of the alternative extremes in the underground metal and punk scenes, gathered together for a fundraiser for people living in the day to day extreme of Palestine, that intangible place in danger of being wiped off the map indefinitely. The original promoter having been otherwise occupied (like the territories) guys from the bands had taken up the reins to ensure this event went ahead and make some success of it seeing as it was already up against it, being on a Sunday. http://www.map-uk.org/donate/donateMore

I have Jebus and his associated holidays to thank for the free time opportunity to catch up with one of the favourite finds of recent years, Seattle’s Black Breath. They’ve had the odd festival appearance since I last saw them at the Star and Garter over here, and these dates are a lead up to seeing them at Roadburn in Holland, but they remain firmly underground with their death/thrash style.
