"A look at the crowd in the now packed room gave the game away that there were a hell of a lot here to see D-beat influenced crust punks Doom. They took to the stage and immediately hit their stride, a high octane steam roller of a set leaving all in its confrontational wake. After seeing Voivod’s frontman Snake wearing a Doom shirt at their recent London gig it was nice to see a reverse compliment being payed tonight, coincidence or not. Down the front people were dancing, slamming and surfing as if this was something they’d waited for for years – and in many cases they have as Doom gigs in London are few and far between. As a salutary backdrop to the whole event the recent loss of life at a Doom concert in Santiago, Chile featured – it was great to see that this gig raised well over half a grand for the victims friends and families. Loads of classic Doom songs from ‘War Crimes’ through to ‘Corrupt Fucking System’ were cranked out at full with Exploitation being a personal favourite, the crowd loving every single second. Too many to mention here but from opener Fear Of The Future to set closer Means To An End there was no let up in their relentless onslaught. Definitely one of the best live bands out there right now which brings us on to tonights headliners…."
