Diamond Head and Stormzone hit the Voodoo

LIVE REVIEW: Diamond Head and Stormzone hit the Voodoo with heavy metal thunder and lightning ON a cold Friday night in Belfast in the intimate venue of Voodoo, two sets of rock legends strode onto stage and gave everyone a night to remember. Local heavy rock stalwarts, Stormzone, and the heavy metal godfathers that are Diamond Head. Stormzone filled the stage with their full on hard and heavy rock with a perfectly placed first song, ‘Where we belong’. And that said it all… A tour de force of pure enthusiastic energy they stormed on through ‘Another rainy night’, the anthemic ‘Three Kings’ and on into ‘The Pass Loning’. Each song was a...

LIVE REVIEW: The Undertones stir up some teenage kicks in the Limelight WHEN two local bands play the Limelight and they pack the place out, you know something special is going down. Brand New Friend and The Undertones were a fantastic match, with a youthful Brand New Friend supporting the well experienced The Undertones. Brand New Friend, a quirky upbeat outfit from Castlerock, is Taylor and Lauren Johnson, Aaron Milligan and Luke Harris. Their set for the night set alight the stage and the audience with their energy. Starting off with “Why Are You So Tired?”, “Seatbelts For Aeroplanes” and “I Was An Astronaut” the tone was well and truly...

ALBUM REVIEW: Sumptuous, elegant, edgy eloquence from majestic Magnum on album #20 BY now you would expect veterans like Magnum to be calling in their albums, dialled straight in, with all the formula expected. Not for the Brummie rockers. Nope, this is a band that have a distinctive sound,...

LIVE REVIEW: Jimmy Barnes – When a Working Class Man storms the Limelight TWO acts and one whole massive show of soul, blues and rock ‘n’ roll stormed in the Limelight in the forms of Lachlan Doley and the rock legend that is Jimmy Barnes. Lachlan was up first and he is a true live soulful blues singing wonder to behold. Watching him as he plays the Hammond organ as he impossibly genuflects out of it soul and blues music of epic proportions. It is a true pleasure to behold. He seems to be a hyperactive Duracell bunny crossed with Kurt Cobain and it is utterly infectious. As he powered into his set, the crowd were presented...

HRH N.W.O.B.H.M Sheffield 3/12/17

  HRH N.W.O.B.H.M Sheffield 3/12/17 Day two. Started off in stage one to a bit of a downer, the band Airrace should have been on, but we heard that one of the member’s sister had passed away and they were therefore not playing. So everyone was upstairs for stage two veterans Seventh Son. Formed in 1980 by brothers Kev, and Oliver Dawson’s Saxon frontman Bri Shaughnessey, now in their 37th year they have been a big part of the NWOBHM scene and still play with as much enthusiasm as ever. Kev emigrated to Australia in 1988, but Bri’s passion for performing keeps the band alive and after going through a number of changes the band of Bri,...

HRH N.W.O.B.H.M. 2/12/17.

  HRH N.W.O.B.H.M. 2/12/17. Welcome to Sheffield the steel city, but the for the next two days at the O2 Arena this was going to the city of metal. NWOBHM, or the new wave of British heavy metal: this legendary genre spawned the likes of Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and many others who have gone on to have major fame. This festival was going to be a mixture of the old and the young who have been keeping this music alive, many since the middle seventies and early eighties. The first few bands of the day were going to be in Stage Two and kicking off at 2pm in the afternoon was going to be no mean feat. But TOLEDO STEEL, Southampton...

PROVIDENCE, RI – Out of Providence, Rhode Island, four-piece alternative pop punk band Silence The Radio have released their brand new EP “Friendly Neighborhood Nightmares,” out TODAY. With the development of “Friendly Neighborhood Nightmares,” the band realized that their biggest strength was their ability to write songs with a catchy, flowing chorus, while still retaining the dark, tongue-in-cheek lyrical style they had originally honed. Aside the title track, The EP includes the theatrical “Sad Love Story,” a tribute to the mid 2000’s alternative scene. Although a modern pop punk band, Silence The Radio incorporates beautiful...

Winter storm day 2 Dec05

Winter storm day 2

  Winter Storm Festival Day Two Day two started a lot slower than day one. Due to me being wired to the moon like a kid on blue smarties after a hell of a day I was not ready to settle down for bed so I partook in Troon’s ambience, lovely people and very late pub licenses. That is as much of the detail as you are getting but lets just say it meant I was not up at the crack of dawn, jogging along the beach. This is all part of festival life but the issue here is I can usually turn up at a festival any old time and no one notices. Unfortunately for me my good friends and two of the best upcoming bands in Anchor lane and Black King Cobra...
