LIFESIGNS – Kinross, Scotland (Concert Review)

LIFESIGNS – Kinross, Scotland (Concert Review)

There are often complaints from rock fans in Scotland when bands announce tours and they don’t complete any dates in the country. Progsters Lifesigns have stopped that happening by doing three shows in the Scotland, including one in the village/town of Kinross! The venue is called “Backstage At The Green Hotel”.  Every time I hear it, it said makes me want to sing a Frank Zappa song!  The place was pretty well full, despite being…

SLAYER – Birmingham Arena, UK (Concert Review)

SLAYER – Birmingham Arena, UK (Concert Review)

To say I was excited about this gig is a vast understatement, having seen Slayer and Anthrax multiple times previously. Going back 30 years for both bands and never being disappointed, I expected a lot from tonight.  After all, we were saying goodbye to one of the most iconic metal bands ever. OBITUARY Obituary, the Florida death metal veterans, play a deep, dark and growling set to get everyone in this packed arena warmed up. …

POWERWOLF – Halloween in Berlin (Concert Review)

Powerwolf! I could do this review in 3 words. Those words being “bloody marvelous fun”. I was, of course, told that isn’t enough! So here is the longer review! Background To Review: Whilst in Berlin I was very lucky to be given the chance to review the gig by Powerwolf at Huxleys Neue Welt in the city itself. The venue holds around 3 or 4,000 fans and was sold out completely. When I arrived the…

ERIC MARTIN – Live at Bannerman’s Bar, Edinburgh (Concert Review)

Eric Martin of Mr Big (as well as Avantasia) fame opened his UK acoustic tour in Bannerman’s Bar in Edinburgh on October 16, a Tuesday night.  Joining him onstage and for the tour was David Cotterill from UK metal outfit Demon.

Both work beautifully together causing many funny moments whether it be stories or…

We’ve been feeling like Nosferatu’s underwear lately.” – Neil Fallon While trying to process Neil Fallon’s…

CHANTEL MCGREGOR – Live at Bannerman’s Bar, Edinburgh (Concert Review)

Opening Thoughts: Sunday nights can be often quiet nights all round. Sunday 30th September however had quite a few bands playing in both Edinburgh and Glasgow including blues player Chantel McGregor who had a date in Bannerman’s Bar in Edinburgh. Pleasingly I think there was a bigger crowd there than the last time I saw her in Edinburgh so word must be getting out at how good she is. Having had the pleasure of seeing…
