Ihsahn / Krokodil / Voices
Venue: Underworld, London
Black metal pioneer brings the warmth
A surprising number of people arrive early enough to catch London’s VOICES , who play a disjointed and ugly form of blackened death metal to a welcoming crowd.
The quartet are only on stage for 30 minutes, but it’s more than enough to cement their place as one of the UK’s most interesting underground bands. KROKODIL’s  sludged-out groove metal seems a little out of place on the bill tonight but any worries are soon put to rest by a boisterous performance that wins over much of the audience. Frontman Simon Wright is a whirlwind of spite and this sort-of supergroup have the tunes to back up their confidence.
