Inglorious/ Wayward Sons @ 02 Academy, Glasgow

  Inglorious/ Wayward Sons @ 02 Academy, Glasgow   I am sure there are a lot of people out there who have a pop at Steel Panther and I am sure they do not care as tonight is sold out, yes, there may be a party atmosphere, lots of already hammered drunk spandex wearers out there but please think about the bigger story. Panther have taken two cracking up and coming UK bands on tour and with crowds like this the winners are Inglorious and Wayward Sons. You know what you get with Panther and they would have sold out no matter who was on the bill so it is time for the support to step up! First up is Wayward Sons and with debit album...

Catfish @ Nice’N’Sleazys, Glasgow Jan26

Catfish @ Nice’N’Sleazys, Glasgow

  Catfish @ Nice’N’Sleazys, Glasgow   Glasgow tonight was a snowy waste land and although the blizzard may have had an effect on the punters through the door there was no way I was missing this show. It is not very often I get recommendations I have not heard of but when I clocked about 30 seconds of a Youtube video I was hooked. I may be a rocker right down to my pores but I love my blues and man did this band tick all those boxes. I actually got in early despite the weather to find the band relaxing and what a lovely bunch of guys(and the lovely merch lady). They may have been relaxed offstage but when they stepped onto that...

  Operation Mindcrime 30th Anniversary, The Garage, Glasgow Shock City productions steps out of Scotland and what a way to do it. They brought the tour that marks the 30th anniversary of this iconic album to the masses. England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland got to witness what could very well be the gig of the year. Now the support for the whole tour was Till Death Do Us Part and I am sure this raised a few eyebrows. Lots of moaning about stars and family members but for us north of the border we are well aware of the talent within this band. Yes, the singer is Emily Tate and apart from the fact father and daughter have incredible...

ALBUM REVIEW: Audrey Horne don’t let us down on Pure Heavy WHEN Audrey Horne declare on ‘Audrevolution’ that they’ll “never let your down” a more cynical person could accuse band of being vainglorious. But said person would be very, very wrong. ‘Pure...

Motionless in White blow through Mandela Hall

Motionless in White blow through Mandela Hall Belfast It was a perfectly cold wet and windy night when Motionless in White and Ice Nine Kills stormed the stage at the Mandela Hall, Belfast. Right on the eve of heavy snow. Fate? Perhaps. The Mandela Hall was packed, heaving with a young enthusiastic crowd of committed fans delighted to be at the first gig to kick off the tour in Europe. Ice Nine Kills, a symphonic metalcore band from Boston, Massachusetts took the stage to the packed hall to the delight of those gathered there. There were quite a faithful followers of Ice Nine Kills and this American band’s horror inspired songs called them...
