LIVE REPORT: The Injester, And?!, Helestios and Katja Macabre @ Surburbia, Southampton 03.06.2022

In the middle of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, a dark ordeal was taking place. Anonymous clown horde THE INJESTER were giving one of their warmup rituals in time for their big top ceremony at Download Festival. Joining their mischievous goings on were equally troublesome AAND?, mixed metal outfit HELESTIOS and the powerful KATJA MACABRE. As … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: The Injester, And?!, Helestios and Katja Macabre @ Surburbia, Southampton 03.06.2022

LIVE REPORT: Battle Born, Countless Skies and Embolectomy @ The Firehouse, Southampton 06.05.2022

When I first heard that uprising Power Metal stars BATTLE BORN, progressive melodeath visionaries COUNTLESS SKIES and local death metal act EMBOLECTOMY were to put on a show at The Firehouse, Southampton; the thing that came to mind was the eclectic music lover's playlist on shuffle. This is in no way a bad thing at … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Battle Born, Countless Skies and Embolectomy @ The Firehouse, Southampton 06.05.2022

LIVE REPORT: INTERNATIONAL WOMEN OF ROCK TOUR Feat. Alia Tempora & Control The Storm @ Whittle’s, Manchester 24/03/2022

Whittle’s Oldham was the location for my first concert of the year, and it was also my first visit to this venue too.  As a venue it certainly has a good welcoming vibe, wonderful décor (massive artwork of DAVID BOWIE & OZZY OSBOURNE is always appreciated along with nods to other Rock royalty) plenty of … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: INTERNATIONAL WOMEN OF ROCK TOUR Feat. Alia Tempora & Control The Storm @ Whittle’s, Manchester 24/03/2022

Live Report: Dendera, A New Tomorrow & Steel Mage – Satan’s Hollow, Manchester 15.10.2021

Satan’s Hollow as a venue is really fitting not just in name but in its charm. The stage itself is in the middle of the room and usually serves purpose as a dancefloor for club nights. With the bands being in the centre it allows you the ability to watch the band from all sides … Continue reading Live Report: Dendera, A New Tomorrow & Steel Mage – Satan’s Hollow, Manchester 15.10.2021

LIVE REPORT: Rhapsody Of Fire w/ Dendera and Collibus at Rebellion, Manchester 14.02.2020

My second gig of the year and in as many days too. Rebellion is a venue where I have attended many gigs and club nights over the years. We arrived just before local act COLLIBUS started their set and were partway through their soundcheck. It was confirmed that there was some members missing as there … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Rhapsody Of Fire w/ Dendera and Collibus at Rebellion, Manchester 14.02.2020

LIVE REPORT: Bowling For Soup w/ Simple Plan and Not Ur Girlfrenz at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester 13.02.2020

A first visit for me to this venue and the layout is really good. There is plenty of space around the bar areas, a separate room for merchandise, good accessibility all around, plenty of space for the crowd and a mezzanine above to get a great overview of the show. First on were Texan teenagers … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Bowling For Soup w/ Simple Plan and Not Ur Girlfrenz at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester 13.02.2020

LIVE REPORT: Leaves’ Eyes & Sirenia w/ Forever Still, Lost In Grey and Kassogtha @ The Asylum, Birmingham 29.11.2019

The night was electric with adrenaline and anticipation. Whilst waiting outside the venue; the fans were delving into LEAVES EYES repertoire and highlighting their views on the bands back catalogue. First to kick off the Female Metal Voices tour were Swiss Melodic Death metallers KASSOGTHA. The band owned the stage with strength and endurance. The … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Leaves’ Eyes & Sirenia w/ Forever Still, Lost In Grey and Kassogtha @ The Asylum, Birmingham 29.11.2019

LIVE REPORT: Kissin’ Dynamite w/ BlackRain and Serpentyne @ The Underworld, London 18.10.2019

On my way to the venue, given it was the same night as the sold out GLORYHAMMER show, it was difficult to know what to expect with regards to audience size. The last time KISSIN’ DYNAMITE were in the UK, they were the opening band for POWERWOLF. They were now doing their own headline tour … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Kissin’ Dynamite w/ BlackRain and Serpentyne @ The Underworld, London 18.10.2019

LIVE REPORT: Power Metal Quest Fest – The Asylum, Birmingham 28.09.2019

I first heard about Power Metal Quest Festival via a Facebook link last year, it featured a competition to win a pair of tickets for the event. I was fortunate enough to win said competition, so travelled down to Birmingham with a friend for the weekend and really enjoyed PMQF 2018. After my positive experience … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Power Metal Quest Fest – The Asylum, Birmingham 28.09.2019

LIVE REPORT: Speed Queen, Toledo Steel and Skyryder – The Firehouse, Southampton 13.09.2019

Heavy Metal therapy should be a thing. Think about it; you have had a stressful week or month; you attend a heavy metal show that matches this energy that helps you get it all out. You also enjoy this experience with likeminded individuals who might be there for the same reason. This was the feeling … Continue reading LIVE REPORT: Speed Queen, Toledo Steel and Skyryder – The Firehouse, Southampton 13.09.2019
