ALBUM REVIEW: Hard hitting ferocity from Cannibal Corpse on Red Before The Black IMAGINE being thrown into a gorilla enclosure. The gorilla is jacked up on steroids, has been on a three-day bender and has heard you’ve been talking shit. The only thing you have to defend yourself with is a...

LIVE REVIEW: W.A.S.P. celebrate 25th Anniversary of Crimson Idol GIVEN the 25 years since its release, ‘The Crimson Idol’s is as much as seminal release from W.A.S.P., but is also a moment captured in many fans minds as a moment in their personal lives, making the ‘Re-Idolized’ date in Belfast a guaranteed sell-out. There was the expected buzz around the October 18th event at Limelight 1, which unfortunately for support act, The Cruel Knives, meant concentration was not in any way focussed towards the stage. While they were energetic and engaging at times they were struggling to keep attention away from the bar....

LIVE REVIEW: Hurricane Darkness rips into The Limeight ON what may become known as Ophelia Eve, a storm of a different kind arrived in Belfast’s Limelight and played like it was their last night on Earth. The night began with Cork three piece ‘Mindriot’. The room was already full when they kicked things off. The lads even managed to get the punters chanting along. They made the most of their little sliver of stage and warmed the crowd up considerably for the impending storm, even if lead vocalist Tony’s banter between songs was difficult to comprehend; a combination of a heavy bass and an even heavier accent! After a small break, The...

Samarkind- Samarkind

  Samarkind- Samarkind What the hell are they putting in the water in Ireland? The emerald isle already has a host of brilliant young talent, The Answer, Baleful Creed, Gasoline Outlaws and The Screaming Eagles to name but a few. Yes, they have also produced gods in the likes of thin Lizzy and Gary Moore so be prepared to add another name to the list, Samarkind are about to send shockwaves through the rock world with this debut release. From the moment opener “ Black Rain” hums its way to your ears till the bluesy “Blue Mountain” fades out you are going to be in blues/rock heaven. I can happily say this is the best debut of 2017 for...

Inglorious The Classic Grand Glasgow

  Inglorious The Classic Grand Glasgow 10/10/2017 Music fans were spoiled for choice as to which gig they were going to go to on a Tuesday night in Glasgow. Gary Numan , The Kentucky Headhunters , Midge Ure and their support bands all playing . What a clash ! The first of many in the next couple of months I guess. Can I make it from one venue another to see the 2nd support band or catch the headlining band finish ? Too much hassle and nothing guaranteed so I stayed put where I was. I arrived at the Classic Grand as Toby Jepson and his Wayward Sons were playing to an almost full venue. I caught 5 numbers by them . Not sure how much time...
