Lovebites are certainly flying the flag for Japanese metal. A packed Islington O2 were there to see the twin axes of Midori and Miyako enchantingly leading the high octane line.
Exhilarating was the word used by MetalTalk to describe the evening and its not a word I would disagree with in this instance.
In terms of shooting, the O2 is one of my favourite venues to photograph from. The pit is a good size, and the lighting is always fantastic. For a venue it is compact enough to have great sound, but with that big venue feel.
The band have a new album hitting the shelves right now - Clockwork Immortality. I recommend you have a listen!
