Manifold EP launch @ 02, ABC

This one seems like it has been a long time coming, I have been watching Manifold for a few years now, through two singers and all with nothing recorded…those days are now gone. Tonight was also a celebration of Glasgow talent as we had four bands on offer but due to that dreaded word, Curfew it saw doors open at six so I missed Magic Trik and Mantis Toboggan(who had already packed up their PJs and hopped to another dimension by the time I arrived. There was no way I was missing Black King Cobra however, as I caught them for the first time recently and I was impressed no end. The boys were onstage as I arrived and were well into their first...

Silver Dust plays 26th Festival du Chant du Gros

  Silver Dust plays 26th Festival du Chant du Gros To be asked to participate in Festival du Chant du Gros – or its smaller brother Le P’tit du Gros – in Le Noirmont, Switzerland, is a great privilege for many Swiss bands and artists. The festival has been running for 26 years now, and is now a prodigious event on par with the Montreux Jazz Festival; with up to 50,000 music fans trampling the field over the weekend. For Silver Dust to be asked to perform at the festival was an immense honour for the up-and-coming Swiss metal band – though front-man Lord Campbell and bassist Kurghan are no strangers to the event, having played at...

ALBUM REVIEW: Godsmack’s Sully Erna takes us down an enjoyable middie of the road journey on Hometown Life GODSMACK have sold millions of album, but what some fans have missed is the solo work of singer and guitarist Sully Erna. The talented front man is about to release his latest solo effort ‘Hometown Life’ (September 29th) and it is a massive departure from the sound of Godsmack. Indeed, on first listen it is a middle of the road release so beloved of American bands trying to gain wider airplay. That initial listen almost makes Nickleback seem edgy, but then when you delve deeper this is varied and raw. Narrative...

ALBUM REVIEW: Peter and the Test Tube Babies on form with That Shallot EVER since Peter and the Test Tube Babies released their song ‘The Queen Gives Good Blow Jobs’ we knew they were something special. Although bundled along with the likes of Splodgenessabounds’ they were more straightforward and felt more ‘punk’. Their irreverent lyrics were offset with tight precise writing – favouring the short, sharp tight arrangements. Over the years they have not mellowed despite growing older. If anything they sound more bitter – and that’s not a bad thing in context. With the imminent release of new...
