Heck – The Globe, Cardiff 03/11/15

After having to change their name from Baby Godzilla for legal reasons Heck are still nothing but a hurricane around the venue. They kick off their set from within a slightly nervous but eager crowd and don’t hesitate to start screaming in peoples faces and climbing the balcony. A health and safety nightmare for the venue but there are no security guards in sight and it’s probably for the best.

They truly are a force to be reckoned with as they power through their songs and spend the majority of the night on the floor. Amps are battered, fans are used as mic stands and guitars are thrown.

With such a big floor space for such an up and coming band it’s somewhat of a mystery to play such a larger venue outside the city centre but they rectify the modest crowd by making everyone form a circle and everyone does whether out of love or just simply scared of the consequences of not doing so.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re in the way or hiding at the back, they’ll go through you. It’s almost a distraction from their music which is as boisterous and frantic as they are. Believe it or not under their live escapades there’s complexity and melodies.

They come to an end with fan favourite Powerboat Disaster and everyone leaves with high spirits. If you ever get the chance to see these lads, just do it. You won’t regret it.
