I'm looking forward to seeing Mikael Åkerfeldt's hat again. In the intervening 10 or so years since I booked the tickets, 'In Cauda Venenum' has only got better. What a masterpiece.
I'd say I'm looking forward to seeing Opeth at the Apollo tonight but it's more that I emotionally and spiritually *need* to see them #myarmsyourhearseface
‘I had had, of course, a fantasy of quaffing Scotch with Ballard.’ In celebration of J.G. Ballard’s birthday, @wself’s essay on the author, sci-fi and writing is currently free for all to read online. granta.com/the-mind-child…

This album's great. Silverchair's FREAK SHOW 🤝Life of Agony's UGLYj
The paperback of ELECTRIC WIZARDS: A TAPESTRY OF HEAVY MUSIC, 1968 TO THE PRESENT is in shops now! Its cover is softer than the hardback but it is still pretty HEAVY. ⚡️ 🧙‍♂️ 📖 ZTO

What a film. Dark as a moonless night, and largely shot that way too. Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris are terse, grubby and completely compelling.
One more terrible photo to end my gig report. Elder! Purple haze!
That's my soul charged for another 5 years
Two feet from 'Given To The Grave'. Indescribable.
About to get in the doommobile and drive to Brighton for Elder/Pallbearer/Irist 😶‍🌫️🥶💣👁
Sorry, it's a zombie dressed up as a Pizza Express chef
Currently watching a Pizza Express chef dressed as a zombie trying to redirect traffic after a car hit a bus. She's getting mixed results.
I hope you have a vengeful Devil's Night
RIP Jerry Lee Lewis. And boy, he needs that peace. I insist you read this book in the same way @HamishH1931 did to me about 15 years ago!
We asked Kris from @ULVEROFFICIAL to summon up a spine-chilling 1 hour mix to guide us through the spooky season. Listen at your own peril!! spoti.fi/3FipCDu 🎃x

Been looking forward to reading this
I spoke to Kenny Hickey of @typeonegative last week about DEAD AGAIN. It was one of the most vivid interviews I've ever done - both funny and sad. It was an album they had to extract from Peter Steele, in the depths of alcoholism, like a bloodletting: knotfest.com/culture/the-fe…

Epitaph Records being named after 'Epitaph' by King Crimson is a great piece of trivia. twitter.com/DarkForcesSwin…
Always a magical time at a National Trust property 🤯7
Watching the Creedence Clearwater Revival doc on Netflix. They're rocking Royal Albert Hall in 1970 with Sunn cabs.
In a week when the system has most definitely failed, here's my interview with Dave Mustaine: the Black Death, radiation poisoning, eating sticks of deodorant, human life on Mars, bad apples in the police, being a pariah, and Megadeth's most successful album launch ever. twitter.com/KNOTFEST/statu…
This England aka BoJo Selecta
Just gone back to this apocalyptic masterpiece for some reason (cc @Glacken) humanfly.bandcamp.com/album/darker-l…
Sorry to hear about the death of Brian Catling. Years ago a friend in the art world sent me the ms. of THE VORRH before it was published. Have to confess it felt beyond me then. I finally read it a few years ago and it still felt beyond me - in the best way! RIP
“For them, the misery of unemployment is at an end.” Cam Kennedy’s wonderful original art for his, John Wagner & Alan Grant’s Judge Dredd: Saturday Night Fever Part 3 for 1985’s 2000 AD #418. Impeccable, timely storytelling from artist & writers alike.

Happy Type O Negative season
This is a clip from series two episode two of #99Novels. Enjoy it, because we're about to release episode three which will overshadow pretty much every #99Novels episode so far! It's a biggie...

'He looks like daddy...'
My local museum has a hell of an exhibition on...
25th August 2002 - vocalist Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan defecates onstage during their set at Reading Festival. A gross act of self-sabotage/self-promotion, two days later the band released an EP featuring Mike Patton - a stone-cold masterpiece youtube.com/watch?v=Xp8U6M…
UK summer holidays observation: male teenagers with *brutal* redneck-alike mullets. Shaggy on top, undercut, straggly and long at the back. Not too widespread yet - early sign of tonsorial epidemic?
Death metal fans! I enjoyed speaking to David Davidson about his diabolical, allegorical storytelling versus Nick Holmes's spur-of-the-moment brutality. Two killer albums out the same day next month. twitter.com/KNOTFEST/statu…
RIP Raymond Briggs: a kind, inquisitive genius. Fortunate to meet him on a (pretty chaotic) visit to Plumpton to pitch a digital project for ETHEL & ERNEST. We had lunch in his local w/ a painting behind the bar of him + local celebs from 30 yrs earlier, including Jimmy Page.
These final episodes of BETTER CALL SAUL 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Speaking of Sabbath, if (like me) you've been spending these dog days of August worrying if any great retro doom is being released this year, this album delivers (thx for the tip @KManriffs)
Well Tony Iommi, Ozzy and his vocal track...
Holy shit Ozzy and Tony Iommi are doing Sabbath at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony. BBC1 now 🤟
See you later, Oberhausen
Call Me A Symbol... symbolically the most important performance of the day.
✈️ to Dusseldorf shortly to cover @KnotfestGermany - very punchy line-up 👊F
Come to the UK and do the trilogy! 🤝twitter.com/GroovyBruce/st…S
