Rock n Skull 2015: The Complete Coverage

Rock n Skull 2015: The Complete Coverage

Initially attracted by bands like Bonfire and Brighton Rock (both of whom became roster casualties), three Canadian Decibel Geeks made the arduous 12-hour drive from the Toronto area to Pekin Illinois for the 2015 Rock n Skull Festival. We were not the only Canadians in attendance as several of our friends from Toronto also journeyed to the event, but there were also friends from the US and even the U.K. and Austria at the festival! This was…

Meister’s Japanese Assault Fest Adventure 2015

Meister’s Japanese Assault Fest Adventure 2015

On a whim and a prayer, inspired by a dare (of sorts), the jet-setting rock and roll festival fanatic, Decibel Geek‘s The Meister (yours truly) was rather spontaneously on his way to Tokyo Japan! I was so happy when Diemonds published the news bulletin that they would be a part of the Japanese Assault Fest 2015 in Tokyo Japan, thanks to their Japanese record label, Spiritual Beast. I have personally followed Toronto Canada’s Diemonds since I instantly…

Japanese Assault Fest: Truly an Assault on the Senses!

Japanese Assault Fest: Truly an Assault on the Senses!

Rich “The Meister” Dillon arrived from Toronto on Friday night, after which we promptly celebrated until 4 am. Hungover on Saturday, The Meister and I bravely worked our way out to Club Seata in Kichijoji to attend the Japanese Assault Fest 2015, with a lineup of Spiritual Beast label acts. The club was small – it holds about 500 people – and the lobby, which is the only place to smoke in the building, was already…

The Story of Rock n’ Skull 2015 – Day 3, October 18

The Story of Rock n’ Skull 2015 – Day 3, October 18

For us, this was the best day at Rock n’ Skull 2015, and definitely one of the top festival days of all time! A fantastic roster of bands, many of which we had been severely looking forward to, capping off with the headliner of Hardline. Our day began very similar to the previous ones here in Pekin Illinois, a little like watching the Bill Murray movie, Groundhog Day even. The essential day starter of Andy’s…

Slayer Is Repentless

Slayer Is Repentless

re·pent verb: to feel or express sincere regret or remorse about one’s wrongdoing or sin. re·pent-less  adverb: the opposite of that shit. Deals with the Devil are as much a part of Rock-lore as sex and drugs.  I was seven when I first heard KISS.  Since then I’ve purchased every record they released.  I was 19 when I first discovered Slayer. Since then I’ve purchased every record they released.  I’m 44.  That’s the real deal…

Sweden Rock-Meister’s Eurotrip 2015: June 2 & 3

Sweden Rock-Meister’s Eurotrip 2015: June 2 & 3

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 Hello all, The Meister has landed safely after a fairly lengthy flight from Toronto to Copenhagen, Denmark. *Special note: in the past two years of travelling to Sweden Rock I have camped and this year felt a bit odd not stealing the little pillow and blanket the airline provides you on the flight over for use in extending my comfort in the tiny age old tent I have used. This year…

Lady Beast Destroys Sonoma’s

Lady Beast Destroys Sonoma’s: A Division of The Meister’s 2015 M3 Experiences This year’s M3 Pre-Party was something of anticipated excitement for The Meister. Having attended last year’s event as a part of my inaugural M3 festivities, I knew that the evening would be filled with great bands and great people, but this year there was a band on the bill that I have been rabid to see live: Lady Beast. I discovered Lady Beast…
