  A little band from Lancaster just proved Rock is not dead   Back in 2014 Gene Simmons set ablaze an argument that filled many with rage when he stated “Rock is dead”. Like most I spat out a barrage of profanities and thought that’s it, the man has flipped. After I had calmed down I made myself read his interview in Esquire magazine and I sadly had to agree with a lot he said.   If you dig past the headline his comment is not about the amount of bands, not about talent but more around the fans and how music was no longer purchased in a physical form and how streaming sites were killing the hope for bands to break through....

Kasabian Are On Fire At Belfast’s Custom House Sqaure Review by Ivor Whitten, Happy Metal Geek Photography by Darren McVeigh, Metal Planet Music The Custom House Square slowly filled from 6pm when the gates opened and people of all sizes, ages, hues, styles and outlooks milled lazily in for one hell of a gig. Drink was drunk and food was eaten in the slow sunny evening in the middle of Belfast. This was a sold out concert and no wonder. None other than Kasabian were playing tonight and in support were the fantastic Aussies, DMA’s. And on they came. Technically, they are a three piece band but whilst on tour there are six of them. And that...

Greybeards Are Perfect For The Wilder Minds

Album Review: Greybeards Are Perfect For The Wilder Minds Greybeards have recently released their album “For The Wilder Minds” through Attitude Recordings, and what an album it is too. First up is “Fast Asleep” with a great layered introduction giving a great rocking vibe all the way. Then in kicks Olle’s vocals. Wow. They are incredible, distinct and sounding like Olle is the metal love child of Blackie Lawless and Justin Hawkins. This is a great rock and roll track with the guitar solos having a distinctly 60’s rock and roll sound to them that just fits right in. It’s like Ingemar is channelling Chuck Berry. The bass has a wonderful...

Leicester Rocks, Leicester Arena 18/08/18

Leicester Rocks, Leicester Arena 18/08/18 Welcome to Leicester Rocks, a brand-new indoor event put on by Solid Entertainments showcasing nine of the best talents in rock and blues at the moment. Starting off the proceedings were four lads from St Ives, Cambridgeshire: Joe Bonson lead vocals and bass, along with brother Jack on drums, and Phil Haines and Tom Collett guitars. Hollowstar formed only three years ago and these guys are setting the music world alight at the moment: they unleashed their six-track ep Some Things Matter just under a year ago and have never looked back. Planet Rock spotlighted them on the ones to watch and they have...

Graham Bonnet @ G2, Glasgow

  Graham Bonnet @ G2, Glasgow After a blistering set at Winterstorm festival at the end of last year there was no way I was missing tonight’s show in a much more intimate setting. Support tonight and for the tour comes from Gin Annie. I have been looking forward to seeing this band for a while and with this there first Scottish show I was from and centre. There has been nothing but good things said about this band from my friends down south and after witnessing this show I can see why. This band is tight and with between 50 and 60 gigs a year it is no wonder. A band whose beginnings were in covers have stepped out of the shadows and...
