They first played Retribution Alive back in 2014 but return to headline the Kings Arms - welcome back Detoxen. They are joined by some special guests in the form of Jacknife Seizure. The Retribution club night keeps the neighbours awake until midnight.

So far the diverse metalisation of Retribution Alive has breached the walls of such venues as the Intrepid Fox, Purple Turtle, 12 Bar, Black Heart, The Lounge, The Dev, Unicorn, Nambucca, Underdog Gallery, Wig & Gown, New Cross Inn, Fiddlers Elbow, Upstairs @ The Garage and the Plough & Harrow! Get along to February's edition at the Kings Arms.

Bands playing 8.00pm-11.45pm:

DETOXEN

Four piece old skool thrash Metal band from South East London. Heavy riffs, harsh vocals and huge amounts of energy add up to one hell of a show. Influences from Metallica, Megadeth and many other thrash Metal founders making the riffs heavy, quick and catchy. Old skool thrash at its best.

JACKKNIFE SEIZURE (special guests)

"Imagine Soundgarden downing too many red bulls and unleashing a prog manifesto of twisting guitars and throbbing bass..." (Alan Hicks)

"Musically, there's definitely some grungy influences blended with some Tool-like progressions, by way of early-Coheed & Cambria. Intrigued? You should be..." (Gareth Hunt)

ENQUIRE WITHIN

Tore the Red Roar Festival apart. Influences include Iron Maiden, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Alterbridge + more.

HALBERD

They drink in the Kings Arms. Now they play in the Kings Arms.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
