CORROSION OF CONFORMITY (Concert Review) – Denver 2017

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY (Concert Review) – Denver 2017

Corrosion of Conformity Concert Review:  COC kicked off their winter tour with Black Label Society at the Ogden Theatre on Wednesday, December 27th. The first time I heard “Albatross” I jumped and crashed through the third story window of Club Obi-Wan, landed in a 1934 Duesenberg Auburn convertible and instructed the underage Asian boy in the front seat to drive me to JR Records and Tapes to purchase COC‘s Deliverance album.  The boy introduced himself…

THE DARKNESS – Cardiff, Wales (Concert Review)

THE DARKNESS – Cardiff, Wales (Concert Review)

As concerts go this is definitely one of the most amusing and unusual I have had the pleasure to witness. After zipping across the world enclosed in a pressurized tin can shooting through the air at over 500 mph, I definitely needed something to relieve the pressure of a hard trip and The Darkness tonight were just the remedy to soothe my ills. I saw The Darkness around 4 months ago in Australia and knew they…

GLORIOUS SONS – The Old Blue Last, London (Concert Review)

GLORIOUS SONS – The Old Blue Last, London (Concert Review)

The Glorious Sons came to my attention whilst visiting Alaska in March 2015. I kept hearing a song on the radio that I fell in love with, it always seemed to be played in between Pearl Jam and other 90’s metal so I presumed it was a band from that era that I missed out on.  The radio station did not seem to have an online playlist so it took a while to find out…

UGLY KID JOE – Capitol, Perth City (Concert Review)

UGLY KID JOE – Capitol, Perth City (Concert Review)

Ok, Ugly Kid Joe‘s leadoff single “Everything About You” was a bit of a novelty track when it first came out, with its dumb lyrics and teenage libido but hiding behind that song was a band that rocks out and parties like it’s 1999. Their first full-length album, Americas Least Wanted, followed hot on its heels and definitely didn’t disappoint. In my opinion, there is not a bad track on this album and when I heard that…

PHEAR Strikes at The Rockpile in Toronto (Concert Review)

PHEAR Strikes at The Rockpile in Toronto (Concert Review)

Fear not my friends…metal flames burn brightly in Mississauga Ontario. The Toronto suburb is home to meal band Phear. Spelt with a “ph” like phat…meaning cool? Works for me. Nothing to be afraid of here despite what you may have heard on the CGCM Podcast about frontman Patrick Mulock being a scary guy. There may also have been other inappropriate chatter concerning genitalia. Those that know, know. Those that don’t…might want to maintain that blissful…

GUNS N’ ROSES – Live at Quicken Loans Arena – Cleveland, OH (Concert Review)

GUNS N’ ROSES – Live at Quicken Loans Arena – Cleveland, OH (Concert Review)

GNR – THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY 26 years ago, a 16-year-old Jeremy (that’s me!) and some buddies headed out to our first concert – Guns n’ Roses for their Use Your Illusions tour (with Skid Row opening!). Izzy was still in the band at that point (for a few more months anyway), but Steven Adler was gone. That concert was simply amazing. Even factoring the nostalgia of my first concert, I remember being…

CHANTEL MCGREGOR – Live In Glasgow (Concert Review)

CHANTEL MCGREGOR – Live In Glasgow (Concert Review)

Chantel McGregor the award-winning guitarist (several times over in the UK) from Bradford, England stopped off in Glasgow at the ABC2 as part of the UK leg of her tour (she is heading to Europe soon, including Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic amongst others). With no support, it was an evening just with the lady and her band themselves. Before the show, she was happily mingling with fans chatting away and having photos taken….

SAVAGE MASTER – Creature of the Flames/Toronto (EP & Concert Review)

SAVAGE MASTER – Creature of the Flames/Toronto (EP & Concert Review)

Galloping out of the fires of Hell (Louisville Kentucky), Savage Master charge upward, riding hard and fast. The full on leader of female fronted occult heavy metal. Their blend of NWOBHM tinged, speed-laden, thrash-influenced metal hits hard. Relatively new, Savage Master began life in 2013 and have risen quickly in establishing a name for themselves. With a roster of Adam Neal (guitar), Larry Myers (guitar), Brandon Brown (bass), John Littlejohn (drums) and Stacey Savage (vocals) they…

ALICE COOPER with ACE FREHLEY – Perth Arena (Concert Review)

ALICE COOPER with ACE FREHLEY – Perth Arena (Concert Review)

Alice Cooper has played in Perth many times in the 16 years I have lived in this beautiful city. Situated on the swan river in the South West corner of Australia, the Perth Arena, location of tonight’s badly undersold gig, is looked upon as a work of art or an eyesore depending on how your mind works (see picture left). I don’t really understand why Alice would pick Perth Arena as the venue for tonight’s…
