Airbourne/ Crobot/ The Franklys @ The Barrowland, Nov29

Airbourne/ Crobot/ The Franklys @ The Barrowland,

Airbourne/ Crobot/ The Franklys @ The Barrowland, Glasgow A couple of months after The Aussie Wrecking crew blew Glasgow apart Airbourne were here to finish the job…let the party commence.I really felt sorry for The Franklys, another all too familiar early start meaning an empty hall, mix that with how different they are to the headliners meant it was going to be a tough night. Their brand of punk tinged rock just never fitted in but the girls did not give a damn and for those of us here who had heard them before we were more than happy. The songs done live were excellent and watching Fanny Broberg going bat shit crazy was epic. The woman...

Soil @ The Cathouse, Glasgow Nov29

Soil @ The Cathouse, Glasgow

  Soil @ The Cathouse, Glasgow It has been a while but Soil bring their massive 2016 European tour to Glasgow as the tour winds down. I know a few people were disappointed that the band Saliva pulled out but after seeing the three bands tonight that was left behind. Unfortunately I missed most of Liberty Lies set tonight but what I did see was totally enthralling. They brought the brutality and kicked the party off in style. The room was already packed and they made the most of the time given and hopefully with the amount of gigs on this tour they will pick up a lot of new fans, I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for the. When...

Eden’s Curse @ The Cathouse, Glasgow @ The Underworld plus Album review Nov29

Eden’s Curse @ The Cathouse, Glasgow @ The Underwo...

EDEN’S CURSE – THE UNDERWORLD – 27.11.16 Naomi Jeremiah I was lucky enough to be able to go and see EDEN’S CURSE at The Underworld, Camden yesterday, the last of their seven date tour of the U.K. I shall admit that I have only recently ‘discovered’ EDEN’S CURSE and am quite disappointed to be so late to what has so far been a ten year party!! Touring on the back of their fifth studio album ‘Cardinal’, which was released on 14th October this year, I caught up with Paul Logue, EDEN’S CURSE Bass player and Manager, prior to the explosive final set of their tour. Upon enquiring as to...

The Ocean Nov27

The Ocean

  Ne Obliviscaris / The Ocean – LIVE – Adelaide, Australia Big night in town, with Ne Obliviscaris (NeO) headlining across Australia with support from the German metallers, The Ocean. This is the ticket to have as the growth and popularity of NeO has everyone along for the ride, though their popularity is no real surprise to anyone. The Ocean are first up and it’s a real coup to see them in Australia. Starting out as the Ocean Collective, now the Ocean, this band are as enigmatic and unpredictable as their name suggests. The traditional setup with two guitarists, vocalist, bass and drums is augmented by Dalai Cellai (Dalai...

With the tour almost complete Graham and his band mates landed in Belfast on one of the last dates of almost 12 months on the road. Before the show (review here) he sat down for a chat about the past, present and future. This is what he had to say:     LIVE REVIEW: Graham Bonnet blasts out the hits of yesteryear and looks forward to the next chapter CLASSIFIED as a...

Album Review : Beast...

Album Review : Beasto Blanco – Beasto Blanco Beasto Blanco are back with album number two. The debut was a punch in the face with its industrial, gritty, raw and ballsy sound. It was unique and totally fresh and although I stumbled upon this band from my long term love of Alice Cooper it was...

For LORDI Army UK and Ireland/Jace Media, Niki Flynn caught up with Hella – the keyboardist for Lordi – on the penultimate UK tour date at Bristol Bierkeller for a girl-to-girl chat about life on the road as a new mom, Primark and stripping on stage (honestly!) Many thanks to Hella for her time, Tour Manager Mark Nowak for fitting us in and Mike Exley for the opportunity. Hey Hella, so how are you feeling today? Hella: Like usual, there always some kind of a flu going on in our bus and that’s the same thing at the moment, so, there is like a choir of coughs going on during the night, so yeah it’s just regular lungs...

The Dead Daisies/ The Answer @ The Classic Grand, Glasgow Nov19

The Dead Daisies/ The Answer @ The Classic Grand, ...

  The Dead Daisies/ The Answer @ The Classic Grand, Glasgow You really cannot beat a good co headline tour and they don’t get much better than this. Both bands have no need to do a tour like this as they can and have drawn big crowds in this city before, it was only last year I saw both bands do headline sets and with both bands recently releasing new material lets just see who comes out on top. Before we get to the bands I am going to have a good old British moan and discuss what is becoming the biggest bane of the gig goers life at present, that dreaded word curfew. I know venues these days are out to make as much money as possible...

CALIGULA’S HORSE / DYSSIDIA – Live – Adelaide/Australia Nov15

CALIGULA’S HORSE / DYSSIDIA – Live – Adelaide/Aust...

  CALIGULA’S HORSE / DYSSIDIA – Live – Adelaide/Australia It’s been a big prog week with Karnivool and Voyager supporting the Deftones two days ago and now we have Caligula’s Horse and Dyssidia on the same bill. Not only that, but it was a full house there to see two of Australia’s best proggers who have helped put ‘cool’ back into a genre that seems to be on the rise. However, I’ve been saying that since the 80s. Caligula’s Horse are a juggernaut who have the setlist replete with songs from the Bloom album from 2015. This was one of the best albums of that year and one that saw the band tour nationally and internationally to great...

JACK J HUTCHINSON’S BOOM BOOM BROTHERHOOD

                                  JACK J HUTCHINSON’S BOOM BOOM BROTHERHOOD JD aka ‘RELLED’ – Guest Reviewer We all love to listen to a bit of the Blues every once in a while and when that urge comes a calling then look no further than grabbing a dose of Jack   J Hutchinson’s Boom Boom Brotherhood. I had the pleasure of seeing them for the first time during the London Blues Festival at The 02 Arena 29/10/16 and I have to say they grabbed my attention right from off with Jack’s powerful fuzzy opening guitar riffs of...

  The Iron Eye – ‘Foreign Bodies’ EP. The Iron Eye is a three piece from Brisbane, Australia who have put together the, ‘Foreign Bodies’ EP due out on the 18th of November 2016. First thing you notice on this is the production value and the mix in particular. It has Tom Larkin of New...

  Album Review : Bad Touch – Truth Be Told Bad Touch are one of Britains hidden gems, They have been slogging it out, gigging away and accepting any and every support slot you can imagine. In fact I have seen these boys about four times in Glasgow in the last two years, the most recent...

  EP Review : Gone Savage – Resurrection This Three piece from Chorley have been around the block a bit which shows in the quality in this release. Gone Savage may not be a name people are familiar with outside their local area but with a top notch EP in Resurrection they are determined...

‹ › × × Previous Next Flickr Album Gallery Powered By: Weblizar KARNIVOOL / VOYAGER – Live – Adelaide, Australia It’s going to be a huge night here with proggers Voyager and Karnivool in support of the mighty Deftones. The last time I saw Voyager was in support of Nightwish where their high energy stage presence and straight up rock won over the crowd. It would have been easy for them to be forgotten with Nightwish and Taberah on that bill but, no way, they delivered that night. So, here we are, a few months later and it’s the same faces in the band but they have grown. Persistent touring with a host of names have helped hone this...

DEFTONES – LIVE – Adelaide, Australia Nov12

DEFTONES – LIVE – Adelaide, Australia

  DEFTONES – LIVE – Adelaide, Australia The Deftones were rewarded with a packed house but I guess you can pack out a good sized theatre when you have an album that has gone to number one in the Australian standard charts. The large and happy crowd have been warmed up by Aussie prog legends Karnivool and up-and-comers Voyager. Gig goers are up for it tonight and, as I wander to the front, the band t-shirts on show cover an array of musical tastes and genres, from the rockers to the ‘cores’, but that’s the appeal of the Deftones. The stage has been extended at the front by a collection of flight cases and amps. I’m in the pit and...
