The Victoria Bikers Pub in Coalville was the venue for Friday nights gig. Every weekend, John Commons, the publican, hosts bands from all over the country. On this occasion it was the turn for some bone crushing hardcore and metal, local band 1000 SCARS supported by two Derbyshire bands, FROM HER ASHES and CAVEKILLER. 

 

First up was CAVEKILLER. With their combination of hardcore and death metal, this refreshing concoction opened the night with a powerful start. Their dark chuggy riffs combined with Josh’s energetic screams were a welcome change, not like anything I’ve heard before.

Headliners 1000 SCARS have played the venue on a regular basis over the years. With a well-established fan base, they proved a hit with the crowd. A mosh pit soon formed, including “Steve” the life size house zombie butler statue! Their punk inspired energy had the crowd pumped, making for a lively and interesting gig. 

 

This was a well-attended vibrant gig, possibly the largest head count I’ve ever seen here! Great mix of bands full of energy and all bands had merch available to purchase. The Vic is a great venue which is often overlooked, which is a shame as they’ve gigs on every weekend with some excellent bands of all genres. I get here as often as I can because I know that even if I’ve not heard of the band, it will be a great night of music
