BLOODSTOCK 2018 – Friday August 10 – Part 1 (Live Festival Review)

Bloodstock 2018: Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us! The Bloodstock Metal Festival is one which personally I have been at a good number of times through the years and always enjoyed. This year for the first time I was going as a reviewer on behalf of Decibel Geek so was excited and nervous as I wanted to give the best account of all the action possible. However sometimes things take a bit of a twist and on…

GIRLSCHOOL – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

GIRLSCHOOL – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL has always been about the music. That’s what got me trekking across the oceans that first time six long years back now. I’ve not missed one since and don’t plan on it anytime soon. The magical music performances are what does it. Sometimes it’s a long defunct band enticed back to the stage by SRF organizers. But sometimes it’s just an old favorite ripping it up in a new setting. That was…

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Day Two (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Day Two (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL While obviously paramount, every festival is about more than the music. The social aspect and expanding your worldwide network of like-minded friends has to come into play somewhere as well. Also eating, that’s important too! This means at a jam-packed event like the Legions of Metal II Festival, it is inevitable that you will not see some of the acts on stage. Also, I did not enjoy every band I…

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Pre-Party (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Pre-Party (Festival Report)

The 2018 Legions of Metal II Festival was a complete and total no-brainer for me. Last year I attended the event mostly because my beloved Lady Beast was on the roster. Who’s kidding who…if not for that, the event may have flown under my radar forever! 2017 brought some troubled times for me personally, but you can read my account of this much needed at the time musical getaway here: LEGIONS OF METAL 2017. And…

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day Four Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day Four Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

Saturday, June 10, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #4 Not being as young and spry as we used to be, we arose a bit later on Saturday, June 10, 2017, the final day of Sweden Rock. No one seemed overly interested in hotel breakfast (although massive amounts of coffee were put away). Slowly dragging our asses out of the room and to the car, you’d think we were all a hundred years…

LEGIONS OF METAL FESTIVAL 2017 – Final Day All good things must eventually come to an end. If you’re going out, why not do it in style? That’s what took place on the final day at the inaugural Legions of Metal Festival. The longest day of the event, we got under way around 2 pm. There was a rooftop patio again and also a brunch buffet offered, but I failed to attend these this day….

Official LEGIONS OF METAL Day 1 (Festival Report)

And here we go for the official first day of the inaugural Legions of Metal Festival at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago. Last night’s pre-party got things going but today promised more face melting metal. Overall a fantastic day, but here and now I express my apologies for the crappy cell phone pics. Legions of Metal Festival Day 1, (Friday, May 19, 2017) Perhaps learning my lesson from yesterday’s pre-party, there would be no rooftop…

Meister Pre-Parties For The LEGIONS OF METAL (Festival Report)

Meister Pre-Parties For The LEGIONS OF METAL (Festival Report)

With the pressures of daily life and responsibilities of adulting piling up heavily, I wasn’t totally sure I’d be making the event. But Metal prevailed overall and off to The Legions of Metal Festival in Chicago I went. Legions of Metal is a traditional metal festival born out of the ashes of the Ragnarokkr Festival. OK, confession time….I have no idea what that is, but they tell me it’s where Legions of Metal was born….
