I would have to wait to experience Gus’ wizardry though, as first up were local old-school metal fiends Raven Black Night. Fronted by lead guitarist/vocalist Jim Petkoff (aka The White Knight) who had some skills for sure, these old blokes (bar the drummer!) are obviously big fans of the metal they heard in their youth, and when they finished up with a cover of Sabbath’s Paranoid it was certainly not out of place. A good introduction to what was to follow.
