BLOODSTOCK: The madness, the mayhem and the glorious music WHEN it comes to festivals Bloodstock towers head and shoulders above most – and not just because they had the man mountain Johann from Amon Amarth present… Genuinely friendly, a selection of bands to warm the cockles of every metalheads’ hearts and a carnival atmosphere across the site. Deep in South Derbyshire the very earth trembles every year and Bloodstock 2017 was no different… With all weekend tickets sold out and day tickets at a premium it was perhaps one of the biggest adventures for BOA, but the scale was not too big to intimidate – apart...

LIVE REVIEW: Inflammatory, nostalgic and still relevant – Stiff Little Fingers blast the past with superb supporting cast WHEN the term ‘heyday’ is thrown around willy nilly, usually by those who choose not to stay up-to-date with a groups current status. But fans know that strong bands are always in their heyday; and when it comes to Stiff Little Fingers today they are more relevant than ever. When SLF and a mighty clatter of supporting acts blasted a balmy night at Custom House Square, Belfast (Saturday, 26th August) the mix of nostalgia and inflammatory music proved that the counter-culture labelled punk still packs a...

Def Leppard 30 years

REVIEW: Hysteria 30 years on gets a re-issue. Is it worth it the outlay for the re-masters? IT’S hard not to be cynical when a plethora of re-issues emerge to mark a significant anniversary with multiple formats. But then again those albums mark moments in our youth when music marked coming of age. With 30 years gone since Def Leppard released ‘Hysteria’ the band have marked it by offering a clatter of formats all re-mastered. Truth be told we have ruminated on this for some time. The feeling about this is much the same we have about Metallica issuing a re-mastered series of Master of Puppets. Both Leppard and...

Prawn – Run

  Prawn – Run Although they were formed in 2008, I must admit that I have not ever heard of Ridgewood quartet Prawn, even though they have released two full-lengths, two EPs and three singles in their emo, post-rock style since their inception. This new record ‘Run’, which...

Review – Craig Grant It’s time to take a trip into the disconcerting world of TROLDHAUGEN with IDIO+SYNCRASIES, the latest whackfest from the Wollongong (Australian) band. The puntastic album title is a much less of a mouthful than a previous album, which was,’ Obskure Anekdotez for...

  Devilfire – Dark Manoeuvres Although you may not have heard of the Birmingham-based band Devilfire, I am almost certain that you may recall the name of the mind behind the new melodic hard rock quintet. They are the brainchild of Alex Cooper from Quireboys fame, and this debut album...

Eden’s Curse – Revisited

  Eden’s Curse – Revisited It is not often I get to review an album I am totally familiar with. Usually I have at most two weeks to get accustomed with an album before sitting in front of a keyboard so it was brilliant to revisit(pun intended) an old friend. Here is the tricky bit…I am not a great fan of reissues, for me it kind of steals the magic from the original unless you can put a deliberate twist on it that is new and original and with “Revisited” that ticked the box enough for me to sit down and listen and to give an objective viewpoint. I bought Eden’s Curse debut when it came out way back in 2007 on a recommendation...
