CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – Denver January 2019 (Concert Review)

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – Denver January 2019 (Concert Review)

COC rocked the Gothic, Englewood, Co, on their headline tour with Crowbar, Mothership, and WeedEater. Wiseblood and Deliverance are two of my favorite 90’s hard rock albums of the ’90s. They’ve stood the test of time. America’s Volume Dealer and In The Arms of God are perfectly rated but still have some gems. Once Pepper was out of the band and they performed and released albums as a trio I didn’t even care. I’ve seen COC…

Fritz-Fest (Friday January 18th 2019 London Ontario – Eastside Bar & Grill) When I first heard of Fritz-Fest, I wanted to be part of it.

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…
