Tremonti dominate the Limelight in Belfast

Tremonti dominate the Limelight in Belfast A very warm evening once more, one would almost think the island of Ireland had moved to just of the coast of Portugal to see what the craic was. Inside the Limelight it was wonderfully cool, though it didn’t stay that way for very long. The crowds began to trickle in for the support act, The Fallen State, as the fate of many support bands are wont to be. Those cramming themselves right up the front were those who knew of The Fallen State. Others nonchalantly lingered at the back cradling their ice cold beers. But that soon changed as the band exploded in a frenzy of rock that made a few mouths...

BROKEN WITT REBELS – SNAKE EYES

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...

RAMBLIN MAN 2018

  Ramblin man 2018 Day 1 Set in the glorious surroundings of Maidstone’s Mote Park with its rolling Kent green land and huge oaks, this festival is set against a beautiful backdrop with 2 days of lovely sunshine without a raindrop forecast, what could be better !! ‘GUN’ were the first band on the list to check out and this enduring band from Glasgow although still releasing consistent albums, knew that it was the classics that the people want to hear, so with an allocated time slot of 45 minutes they pushed on with ‘Don’t Say its all Over’, ‘Better days’, ‘Word up’ and a thunderous version of ‘Steal your fire’. The band certainly have...

BARROS – MORE HUMANITY PLEASE

BARROS – MORE HUMANITY PLEASE   Paulo Barros, most notable for being the guitarist in the Power-Metal band “Tarantula” is set to release a new album with his solo project “Barros” on June 29th. “More Humanity Please” is melodic hard rock album perfect for fans of Whitesnake, Van halen or any other Classic hard rock bands.   The album emphasises simplistic structures and straightforward songs and you get this impression fairly early on. The first track, “My Everything” sums this idea up. It opens with a chuggy, driving riff, accompanied by obligatory “yeahs” over the intro. The song rolls along nicely before taking a step back in...

Newcastle. Bloodstock, Battle of the Bands

  23.06.2018.Trillians Rock Bar, Newcastle. Bloodstock, Battle of the Bands – Metal 2 the Masses. The North East final of Bloodstock Festivals Metal to the Masses held at Trillians Rock Bar, Newcastle on Tyne. It was one of those nights where you just would not want to be a judge. Fortunately for the manager this time around it did not come around to him to decide. Present was Bloodstock royalty in the form of Lisa and Lee, 2 of Bloodstocks long term employees and festival organisers to decide. Chatting to them earlier they had already made the descision not to see who had qualified and who would be playing on the night and not even to...

  Stone Free Fesitval – Sunday 17th June 2018 – 02 London This was my first time at Stone Free Festival and for those who have not been it is a well thought out 2 day festival. Day 2 was billed as Prog and Blues but there was enough variety to keep everyone entertained. The whole of the 02 venue is used, from the Orange Amp stage which is outside but undercover, near the entrance to Indigo at the 02, a smaller venue inside but with a great stage plus plenty of room to move around. The main arena is also used later in the day. When I arrived, I caught a few minutes of StoneWire, with a female singer, Sky Hunter who really...

  Stone Free festival serve up a meaty metal smorgasbord with their Saturday three course headline menu The Orange Amps stage and the Indigo at the O2 had exhausted their last servings for the Saturday festivities. Many metallers had gotten a great taste for new and upcoming bands form a very full menu of musical hors–d’oeuvre. But now came the three course main evening menu with Buckcherry, Megadeth and Scorpions. First from the platter and onto the table was the ever writhing sleaze shocking, hard-rocking superstars Buckcherry. Straight from the oven came the pipping hot “Ridin”, “Broken Glass” and “Slammin”. Buckcherry...

With a melodic base and refined lines and tones, the songs will take the listener on an experiential journey that enters the realm of love, sex and loss. The tracks on the crowd-funded EP summarise Kaleb’s perpetual state of nervous existence. The multi-instrumentalist singer (he plays a long-necked Stratocaster, a tailored Les Paul...
