The best metal gigs of 2016

Whether they were career-defining headline shows or jaw-dropping festival sets, these were the gigs that floored us in 2016

Parkway Drive

Brixton Academy, London, February 12

WE SAY: Six months after our cover stars dropped the table-smashing Ire, they brought their anger to the legendary, 5,000-capacity Brixton Academy. Through the new songs, the confetti cannons and the pyro, Winston McCall’s warrior- like stage presence shone strongest of all. Epic.

THEY SAY:“I remember walking into Brixton Academy and thinking how amazing it looked completely empty, and imagining what it was going to look like full that night. I wanted to make sure the show was flawless – that we left an impression worthy of such an iconic venue. It ended up being one of the best shows of last year.” Winston McCall, vocals
