Primal Fear – Apocalypse

 Primal Fear – Apocalypse Primal Fear, formed in 1997, are at the forefront of German Metal, and they’re a household name in the Metal genre in general. Their latest album, “Apocalypse” (released August 10th on Frontiers Music) sets a high standard for fresh, gritty speed metal. Apocalypse has an authentic, classic speed metal sound. There’s a real Judas Priest feel throughout, emphasized by singer Ralf Scheepers’ (formerly of Gamma Ray) high-pitched, soaring vocals. I really enjoyed the style and I appreciated the albums uncompromising commitment to pure, in your face metal. “Apocalypse”, the titular and opening track, is a spooky,...

Kenny Dubman – American Songbook It was two years ago I discovered Kenny Dubman with his incredible release “ Reckless Abandon”. I was a little shocked to see that all that time had passed as that album is never far away and has been played to death in this house. It also came out of the blue...

Sixfields Rock Festival, 21-22/07/18

  Sixfields Rock Festival, 21-22/07/18 Duston Mill Northampton Day One Now in its third year Sixfields Rock Festival started off as a one- day event: one stage and a small beer tent, last year it expanded to a three-day event three stages, camping and over forty bands including Girlschool and Stray. This year it was to be different again: one stage over two days. The main bands were to be playing in the afternoon and the evening was to be for the covers and tribute bands as the organisers found this is what the overall attitude was of the punters. Myself, I’m old school and love to see original bands and hear new things but I...

Gig Review: Myles Kennedy brings acoustic rock to a packed Limelight Posted onJuly 22, 2018AuthoradminLeave a comment Arriving in Belfast just two days after his erstwhile bandmate Mark Tremonti, Myles’ gig was going to be slightly different as it was a bit more unplugged than Mark’s. Yup, that’s right, Myles Kennedy was going to do this gig the old fashioned way(ish) and play an acoustic set. A bold move by Mr Kennedy. Inside the Limelight, what was immediately noticeable was the large crowd that had already gathered and that quite a few were already determined to be as close to the stage as possible. And the support act hadn’t even come...

Album Review: Enuff Z’Nuff – Diamond Boy E’nuff Z’nuff, known for their hit’s “Fly High Michelle” and “New Thing”, are releasing their latest album, “Diamond Boy” on August 10th. Their fourteenth studio album, E’nuff Z’nuff started in 1984 and are renowned for their melodic, power pop sound.

The first few songs highlight everything there is to know about Enuff Z’nuff: Catchy melodic vocal lines, poppy rhythms and an overall atmospheric, spacey sound. “Diamond Boy”, the titular...

Album Review: Tymo – Purge & Reset Canadian thrashers “Tymo” released their second full length album, “Purge & Reset” in August 2017. Thrash is a genre with limitations. It’s got a very specific sound and any deviation from the norm is generally not accepted. This can make it...

Album Review: Broken Witt Rebels

Album Review: Broken Witt Rebels – Snake Eyes In 2016, Birmingham based Broken Witt Rebels, won “Unsigned Band Of the Year” at the Unsigned Music Awards. Since then, the bluesy rockers have signed with Snakefarm Records and released their eponymous debut album, as well as appearing at several high profile festivals. Now, they will be accompanying Reef on their UK tour in November, and are set to release their latest E.P. “Snake Eyes” on August 10th. The E.P. opens with the titular “Snake Eyes”. A doomy, bluesy opening riff underpins the vocalists hoarse, southern vocal tone. I was pretty shocked to find out that the band are actually from...
