KING KING – 10th Anniversary Tour – Glasgow O2 Academy – (Concert Review)

About the band: King King the hard rock and blues band have been touring their latest album Exile And Grace for a while and decided to end the latest leg of it in their home town of Glasgow.  The band are something of a well-oiled machine playing live almost constantly. They have a very bonhomie type attitude on stage. No over the top theatrics or even talk. Vocalist Alan Nimmo refers to the audience in the terms of “ladies…

ANDI SCHNITZER – KISSIN’ DYNAMITE (Interview)

  Whilst the band Kissin’ Dynamite were in Glasgow on their support slot to Powerwolf I had the chance to catch up with drummer Andi Schnitzer. This is the main parts of what was said in amongst some really pleasant general chat. Really nice guy. This is what he had to say: Tom Cornell: So this is your first time in Scotland? Andi: Yeah!

MOONSTRUCK – Web Of Deception (Album Review)

MOONSTRUCK – Web Of Deception (Album Review)

  Web Of Deception is the name of the first album by Dutch prog metal outfit Moonstruck. Having previously released an EP called Impact over a year ago which certainly left an “impact” on this reviewer (sorry I couldn’t help myself), I was keen to hear an album worth of new songs by the band. The 5-piece certainly deliver a quality set of songs and music which again shows their influences but still manages to sound like Moonstruck. The…

UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS – Wasteland Tour – Glasgow G2 – (Concert Review)

UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS – Wasteland Tour – Glasgow G2 – (Concert Review)

On a cold wintry night in Glasgow, Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats brought their dark groovy psychedelic metal to town. They were also ably assisted by Canadians Blood Ceremony on the night. Pleasingly it was a sold out show so the venue was nicely packed through the night. Personally, this was my first experience of both bands live (in the case of the support only having heard a couple of songs) so I was quite excited to…

POWERWOLF – The Sacrament Of Sin Tour – SWG3 Glasgow (Concert Review)

Powerwolf and Glasgow meet for the first time What could be more fun than a metal mass on a Sunday night with a rabid Scottish audience? Nothing I can think of personally. Powerwolf came to Scotland and Glasgow for the first time and absolutely wowed the crowd. The metal fans in attendance also wowed the band! What a night it was. The band are known for fire and flames and a crazy stage show. Sadly they…

Kissin’ Dynamite play Scotland for the first time Kissin’ Dynamite came to Glasgow (SWG3) as support to Powerwolf. This was their first tour in the UK and their very first time in Scotland. From the chat I had with drummer Andi Schnitzer earlier in the afternoon (still to come on this site) they were very fired up about playing here. Fighting technical problems At exactly 17:40 (really!) they hit the stage. Pleasingly even although there was such an early…
