”I’ve seen Saturnalia Temple once before and that was last year at The Tufnell Park Dome  here in London. The were on the bill with Czech metallers Cult Of Fire who are bloody fantastic live by the way! There was a good crowd in tonight to see the three bands on the bill, Rclcvse, Inconcessus Lux Lucis and Saturnalia Temple! I did not see Reclvse but Inconcessus Lux Lucis  were really good! Intense, ritualistic and melodic with a tight and rehearsed set that had me sitting on the benches stage right shaking my head like i had a problem  with tiny bugs that would not separate from my hair without some vigorous encouragement!! I’ve not seen I.L.L before, i instantly liked them and will check them again in the future!!   Saturnalia Temple are from Sweden, they class themselves as Black Magic Metal! It is most definitely  Black! The darkest black that one can muster! Their sound is like a forge hammer incessantly hitting the head, it is sludgy with a hypnotic quality that lulls you into a daydream! I dreamt of dark forests, i could smell the scent of pine needles mingling with the aroma of decay! I could see low hanging mist in my minds eyes with the peaks of mountains insinuating themselves into the grey sky above. I can see a wilderness untamed and free of the bullshittery of modern life and i loved it!! At times it felt a little monotonous, some would find untamed nature monotonous, but just as i thought that my mind was brought back on track with a well place smattering of riffery, like a chunk of slate sliding off a rock face and falling majestically down into the tree tops below!. This is a band to listen to whilst laying supine in a dark room  imbibing some mind relaxing substance of  choice or whilst roaming through the depths of The Tiveden!! I would say that Black Sabbath is a big influence so is Burzum! Aroma Stoner Ritualistic Black Metal i’d say!!”

“Luxury Stranger are a hard working and talented band hailing from Nottingham and they are currently seeking a hard working and talented drummer to complement and also add to creative juices flowing up there in the land of Robin Hood. Being part of this band would be a life affirming decision for all involved and in years to come said drummer will be looking back and saying:- “I am glad I got involved in that!” I have faith, they have belief, what do you have??”

“Get in touch if with the band if you have what it takes and what they need!!”

“It’ll be the best thing you’ve ever done!!!”
