Winterstorm Day Three – After The Storm

All new to 2018 is the inclusion of After The Storm, an additional day that lets us keep enjoying the music but in a more relaxed state. A short day with only three bands all stripped bare(not clothing) and all seated in the smaller hall. It worked out to be the perfect finale to the weekend for those still feeling a bit rough after the overindulgence but not wanting to let go of the music or weekend just yet. First up was Terry Brock, the man with the voice and the front man for his solo career, Roth/Brock, Strangeways and one of my all time favourites Giant. Terry had played a full set the previous day but I missed that due to a clash and...

Winterstorm 2018 day 2

  Winterstorm 2018 day 2 Waking up much fresher than day two last year( I even managed breakfast) I head out on the short walk from my hotel along the beach towards the venue in glorious sunshine. My head is clear and I am ready for another full day of music. Everyday Heroes were first up but we did get back to last years issues as we get a fire alarm and everyone is turfed out on the streets. After waiting on the fire brigade to give us the all clear everyone gathers round and catches up on what an amazing day yesterday was. One of the best things about this festival is how friendly everyone is. I may already know a big chunk of the...

Winterstorm 2018 Day One

  Winterstorm 2018 Day One My final thoughts leaving Winterstorm last year as I trudged through the snow was they are not going to top this. That was my first year attending and the whole weekend blew me away. From the staff who are all volunteers, the amazing location, the like clockwork organisation down to the bands it left a lasting impression and came out top as my favourite festival of the year. The thoughts that it could not be beaten faded as soon as the line up to 2018 was announced and I knew in an instant I would be back in this beautiful town again…so would it rate as highly as last year? I did not make it for first...

Hard Rock Hell 12 Hafn Y Mor 10/11/18 Day Three.

  Hard Rock Hell 12 Hafn Y Mor 10/11/18 Day Three. The final day of the festival and stage two was pretty full for the first early band of the day, The Bad Flowers, this trio from the Black Country were formed four years ago and are Tom Leighton Guitar/lead Vocals, Dale Tonks bass and Karl Selickis’ drums. They play hard and heavy rock and the sound of their Midlands counterparts is there to be heard: Sabbath, Priest etc but all done in their own style; the loud thudding drums, the deep bass, and excellent guitar work and powerful vocals from Tom made for an entertaining start to the festival. Having released their debut album...

  Hard Rock Hell Hafan y Môr Friday 9/11 18. Day Two Today the bands were kicking off in stage two, the more intimate of the stages. First band on, from the NWOCR stable of musicians who are setting the music scene alight at the moment, was Dead Man’s Whiskey. This London based five-piece Nico lead Vox, Billy lead guitar, Elliott rhythm guitar, James bass and Charlie drums know how to please a crowd and the size of the audience so early in the day just went to prove that. Their fans ‘or whiskey chasers’ were all out there to enjoy their performance. Havin seen these guys before and reviewed their album Under the Gun, first I will say...

HRH 12 Hafan y Mor Pwllheli Thursday 8th November 2018. Day One As always on the first day all the bands were on the main stage. and it may have been wet and miserable outside, but inside it was going to be hot and heavy. The opening ceremony was the hot as the HRH fire dancers came on stage to do their stuff, and then it was on to the heavy. The band kicking off the proceedings were multi-national rockers Eden’s Curse, with five albums under their belt since their first self-titled one eleven years ago it was time to bring out a best of album and their latest Testament is just that, so fans of the band were expecting a catalogue of songs...

The second year for this special event and once again all aspects of the music industry: media, photographers, press, and the bands, were there in in their best rock and roll glitz, and for the lucky VIP fans this was going to another special occasion.
