Curveballs - July 10th 2008 (with Artisian)


Tonight’s show was all about the metal as Chris and Iain from Artisian joined Nick in the studio. Based in Southampton, the trio (completed by drummer Ben) have released three albums (two of which have Scottish Gaelic titles, which I failed miserably at pronouncing), and have played in nearly 30 countries across Europe, supporting big metal names such as Mayhem, Marduk and Gorgoroth. Ahead of a European tour with Gorgoroth in the autumn, the band can next be seen locally at The Hermit in Brentwood on September 12th – they’ll be spending Halloween there too! For all the band’s upcoming shows and to get hold of albums and merchandise, head over to - be sure to clear the furniture first though…
