Chase the Day have only been established since 2012 which makes them a band still in its infancy, but this album – Tabula Rasa – is their debut into the world of published music; and what a debut it is. Pariah is an exceptionally strong introduction to their debut, with a spectacularly chunky...

Review : Fear Me December – Between Violence And Silence The first thing I read about Fear Me December made me feel pity, this band has moved from Argentina to Manchester to make a go of this thing we call the music business. Why the pity? C’mon people, apart from the west coast of Scotland,...

Review : Whisky Myers – Mud I discovered Whisky Myers the old fashioned way when they supported Cadillac Three and they blew me away live. In this job and this world with all its readily available information it is rare to get to a show without knowing who a band is. That show set me...

Maverick

MAVERICK ALBUM LAUNCH Sometimes, you go to a gig that’s so good, it does more than just make you smile, and cheer, and sing. Sometimes you go to a gig that’s so amazing that it actually takes you back in time. Such was the case on Saturday night, when local favourites Maverick launched their brilliant new album Big Red in Belfast’s Limelight, supported by Irish metalheads Stereo Nasty. Even before the doors opened at 7pm there was a heavy sense of anticipation hanging in the air; Maverick always put on a great show, but tonight promised to be something special indeed. First up is Stereo Nasty, whose love of Eighties...

Red Hot Chili Peppers   Tennent’s Vital, Belfast – 25th August BELFAST’S long-running Tennent’s Vital festival is now a long-established fixture in the touring schedules of many bands, falling on the days before the Reading and Leeds festivals. But, 2016 was the biggest Vital yet, with the first day alone seeing almost 40,000 people pack into the City Council Boucher Road Playing Fields, most of whom were there for headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers and for their top support slot, Fall Out Boy. The demographic of the audience paid tribute to the period when the Chili Peppers and Fall Out Boy dominated the TV music channels with hits and...

Airbourne plus support

Trucker Diablo/The Treatment/Airbourne The Limelight Belfast, 24th August, 2016 Breakin’ Out the rock THERE is such a thing in rock ‘n’ roll as repetitiveness – a trap that many bands fall into. But it takes a certain talent to throw aside the temptation to churn out the same old stuff and deliver a stunning set. Airbourne have that talent. When they landed in Belfast’s Limelight – the third last show in a lengthy run supporting the Breakin Outta Hell tour – they still had the energy and the joy of being on stage that few can match. Indeed that same ability is inherent in local heroes, Trucker Diablo, a band that also know that being...

Review : Delain – Moonbathers I am sure I have no need to introduce you to Delain, for 10 years they have clawed and fought their way to the top of the Symphonic Metal mountain. They are well known for good reason and with a release as amazing as “Moonbathers” there will be no backwards...

Review : Glasstide -Lights Exeter youngsters Glasstide have only just went and released one of the most exiting EPs in 2016 and guess what…it is only their debut as well. “Lights” is only a four track but it is full to bursting with new ideas, old classic sounds and toe tapping, sing...
