VMO at Devonshire Arms, London - live review
Venue: Devonshire Arms, London
Japan’s rave/BM maniacs assault the senses
Post-hardcore only in the sense that a charred and irradiated wasteland is post-apocalyptic, CALLIGRAM’s  splicing of black metal’s DNA into their sonic assault only seems rational in context of the mindfuck to come. But amongst their juddering grooves and frontman Matteo Rizzardo’s caustic vocals, expansive surges take them into exhilarating new territory.
