HRH METAL IN BIRMINGHAM DAY 1

            HRH METAL: O2 Academy Birmingham 17th & 18th Feburary 2018. Day one Welcome to Birmingham, the birthplace of heavy metal! And what better location to run a three day metal festival. Now in its second year the canny HRH crew thought, how about we let the fans decide what bands they want to see and enjoy, so an online voting system was set up on the HRH page and after an overwelming response. HRH METAL was born, three days and three performance stages of non stop metal in different genres: thrash, death, speed even folk, it’s all there and more, to headbang, pogo, or frankly just go mental to. And...

LIVE REVIEW: 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...

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...

Inglorious/ Wayward Sons @ 02 Academy, Glasgow Jan28

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...

Steel Panther and Wayward Sons  in Belfast Jan20

Steel Panther and Wayward Sons in Belfast

  A cold January night was no match for the pulling power of Steel Panther and Wayward Sons, who rocked up to the Limelight, Belfast. The Limelight was packed in anticipation for a very special evening of some of the greatest heavy metal filled adolescent toilet humour this side of the Lagan. First on the stage was Toby Jepson’s Wayward Sons and, boy, did they do themselves proud. Nailing every song with vigour and rock and roll panache. Kicking it all off, they soared into ‘Alive’, ‘Ghost’, and ‘Don’t Wanna Go’. The energy of the band radiated right across the Limelight. These guys knew how to rock out. Toby’s vocals belting out...
