Show Review: Enforcer @ The Hard Luck, Toronto

Since my awakening in October 2015, I have amassed their entire discography (except the Live By Fire CD/DVD released in November 2015), seen them live twice in Tokyo, Japan and even placed their 2015 studio album, From Beyond, in the #2 spot of my top albums of 2015!

I have personally followed Toronto Canada’s Diemonds since I instantly…

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…
