Enslaved / Grand Magus / De Profundis

Live Review

Venue: Islington Academy, London

Voyagers journey between fun and fury

It might be sacrilege to describe a metal band as ‘too loud’ but DE PROFUNDIS’s [6] ongoing jackhammer assault means that the nuances are lost in the fuzz.

Nonetheless, the sinister edge of Illumination is a nice way to end their set. Like a good steak, GRAND MAGUS [8] tick all the boxes: solid, meaty and completely satisfying. JB’s voice is stupendous, especially on Iron Will and a strident Kingslayer, but they save the best for last with Hammer Of The North and a big singalong that continues long after the band leave the stage.
