When Anvil Pounded the Pavements of Belfast A COLD Tuesday night feeling like it was the dead of winter should have ensured the streets of Belfast had only a few stragglers knocking about the place. Not so for the Limelight 2 where the legendary Anvil and the mighty Stormzone were playing....

 Falling Red deliver sleaze smorgasbord on Lost Souls ONE wonders what the residents of Cumbria must make of Falling Red – they’re not what you would expect from that rugged landscapes – instead it is a glammed up party machine that packs musical punch as all can attest to who have seen their live show. On new release ‘Lost Souls’ they not only capture that but they belt it out of the park, into orbit. Looking like escapees from Sunset Blvd taking refuge in England they may seem like just another sleaze band, but they are much, much more than that.. This is a diverse collection of tracks. From the pureblood...

Album Review: The DE...

  Album Review: The DEAD XIII – Dark Days I was lucky enough a few years ago to review the debut album by the DEAD XIII which was called Catacombs. It was a corker of an album, to the point we started the review by saying, ‘Ok, so just go buy this’. My opinion hasn’t changed since I...

Live Review: The Stranglers in Adelaide, Australia...

  Live Review: The Stranglers in Adelaide, Australia. Punk rock royalty have come to Adelaide as part of their Australia and New Zealand tour. We have The Ruts DC support The Stranglers, two bands there in the beginning and still going strong. Both bands have had their loss, their ups and downs but on the night these two bands left a busy venue wanting more. Kicking the night off with The Ruts DC we have a band that I have been looking forward to for so many years. On the night we had all the classics, including, Babylon’s Burning, Staring at the Rude Boys and In a Rut all from the Ruts days. The big one for me was hearing Kill the...

Symphonic extravaganza  headed by Therion Feb12

Symphonic extravaganza headed by Therion

Symphonic extravaganza lands in Limelight headed by Therion COSTUMES. You wouldn’t expect a live music review to start with costumes. It’s not a fuckn’ fashion blog! But, the point in referring to four bands’ costumes is attention to detail. When the four acts, headed by Therion, hit the stage on Saturday February 10th, that act of putting on a costume, warpaint or whatever gives the audience a focus, and gets the band into the mindset of providing entertainment. And, this tour package poured out as much entertainment as the beer taps were providing… Manhattan’s Midnight Eternal set the tone for the...

Raveneye Skam Mosmo Strange.Live in Belfast

LIVE REVIEW: Raveneye, Skam and Mosmo Strange. Three rock bands walk into a bar …. ON a rather cold Friday night the Belfast Empire played host to a full on rock performance of epic proportions. As the crowd milled in anticipating a good show, little did they know what a fantastic night it was to be – minds, as they say blown… Setting the scene was local band Mosmo Strange, a four piece band of Gavin Scott, Nolan Donnelly, Eamonn Doherty and Conor Bradley. Kicking in with ‘L’Etrange’, Clipper and ‘Fumar Mata’, they grabbed people’s attention straight away with an eclectic alt rock energy. These guys were not the usual...

Kaine – A Crisis Of Faith

  Kaine – A Crisis Of Faith   I fell in love with Kaine on the back of last album “The Waystone”, it harked back to my youth, my teenage years when I lived through NWOBHM.I wanted to grab onto that feeling like a junkie with their last bag of smack. Maiden were(and still are) the band that tore me away from punk and threw me into a world of metal that I am still totally immersed in. I found the album late, I bought it on the back of one track and it impressed me so much I wrote a review which is unheard of that length of time after release but I had to I was so impressed. This made for a very difficult task to beat. The wait has...
