On 21st and 22nd September, at the Duchess in York, comes the event I’ve been waiting since February for – the Warhorns Festival, a day and a half of celebration for our finest exponents of christian-slaughtering, mead-drinking, sword-wielding metal, and for good measure, they’ve brought in reinforcements from parts of northern Europe as well, and even an interloper from Vinland. It is absolutely not to be missed.

Of course, some regular features are still part of the show – the World Tour visits the “istan” countries of central Asia, and just about manages to find a handful of bands who actually live there, as well as a couple who don’t. Paul Houlton’s Recommendations Corner makes a triumphant return that even manages to link up with one of the Warhorns bands, and a certain German who has just become old enough to drink beer legally also has a few choice cuts for us.

This show was due also to feature the bands from the Full Moon Dog Festival, in Leeds on 13th October, but there really wasn’t space – so I’ve moved October’s show to the 11th so it can be released before the event, and feature all its bands! Also, that way you’ve all got a timely reminder just before it starts. Aren’t I generous?

Meanwhile, after the event, I wrote a review:
