A 9-band 3-venue 2-day mini-festival has been announced, taking place in Camden on the 11-12 May, 2018. Frost and Fire kicked off in California three years ago and this year sees the event cross the Atlantic for the first time. If you like your metal very much old school, this definitely looks like one to check out.


Organiser Night Demon say:


We are simply expanding the Frost and Fire concept to cross the Atlantic and pay tribute, fittingly enough, to the cradle of the NWOBHM movement. It is an honor and a privilege to bring Frost and Fire to the UK to make history on English shores.


Headlining the festivities at The Underworld on Saturday, May 12, will be California’s legendary kings of the dead, Cirith Ungol. After a string of wildly successful reunion shows in the United States and continental Europe during the last two years, Cirith Ungol will be making their first-ever UK appearance at Frost and Fire London.


Also co-headlining on the bill are revered NWOBHM pioneers Angel Witch returning home for the first time in years, fast-rising American upstarts Night Demon, and a pair of acclaimed young British bands well-versed in the ways of the olde, in the form of Wytch Hazel and Amulet.


After the music ends at The Underworld, the party continues one block north on Kentish Town Road at The Devonshire Arms (affectionately known as “The Dev”). This official After-Party will feature DJ Live Evil as well as Southampton’s own Toledo Steel, playing their album release show to commemorate the release of their eagerly anticipated full-length debut, No Quarter, via Dissonance Productions. FREE ENTRY!


Festgoers are strongly advised to make plans to be in London a day early to attend the NWOBHM Pre-Party Rager on Friday, May 11. This special event will be held at The Black Heart, conveniently located across the street from The Underworld in Camden Town. The Pre-Party will include performances from a trio of legendary NWOBHM acts, namely Jaguar, Bashful Alley, and the mighty Mythra.


Tickets are on sale now at, Dice and the venues themselves (see below). These intimate venues have strict limits to capacity. Tickets will go fast, and all Frost and Fire London events will sell out. So buy your tickets now or risk being left out in the cold.


Frost and Fire London will not supplant the original Frost and Fire festival in southern California in October 2018. Stay tuned for announcements about Frost and Fire IV in the coming weeks.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
