Trivium & Co. live @ Brixton Academy

As Code Orange headed off stage to a stunned crowd, I wondered how I would start this review. What came to mind was; three of the most exciting bands in metal, and Trivium, wow Brixton. I decided against that as it sounds critical towards Trivium. A stance I definitely didn’t want to take once Trivium […]

Lower Than Atlantis with support from The Faim @ Gloucester Guildhall

Opening the show are Australian quartet The Faim. Despite the majority of the crowd not knowing who they are as they took to the stage, the quartet show their promise and the reason why not only Australia but the entirety of the world who have heard of them are raving about them. With a frontman who […]

The Wombats @ Alexandra Palace, London

The Wombats put on a sensational show at Alexandra Palace on Tuesday (27th March 2018). The band made an electrifying entrance with Cheetah Tongue before moving into Give Me A Try. 1996 was very chaotic, with a large portion of the crowd near the front collapsing but lead singer Matthew Murphy made sure everyone was okay before restarting the song after everyone had recovered. Lemon […]

Fall Out Boy live at Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff

After a 45 minute queue around the block to get into the arena, deafening screams are heard as the big screens on either side of the stage show Panic! At The Disco‘s Brendan Urie leading to a huge sing-a-long to Death Of A Bachelor. Things calm down after this, that is until Against The Current take to the […]

While She Sleeps, Counterfeit and Blood Youth live at O2 Institute, Birmingham!

It’s a dismal February evening in Birmingham but the frigid weather has done little to put off the Sleeps family who huddle between the barricades outside the O2 Institute. Once inside, Blood Youth are up first and so it falls to them to thaw out the gathering crowd. They kick the proceedings off with a […]

Turbowolf live @ Scala London

Turbowolf put on one of the most eclectic high energy shows of 2018 so far at a near capacity Scala. Playing an almost even spread of songs from their 3 albums, the energy levels never dipped across the 12 song set. Supports for this show came from Big Spring and Puppy. Big Spring, a grunge […]

Milk Teeth w/Nervus & Fangclub @ Buyers Club Liverpool

There doesn’t seem to be a month go by when Milk Teeth don’t announce a new series of live dates. Whether it’s trekking around the UK in support of last years marvelous Be Kind and Go Away EPs or going round the USA with Enter Shikari, Milk Teeth have to be one of the hardest […]

Waterparks, Patent Pending & Dead live at Y Plas, Cardiff

Opening the show are UK rockers Dead! who show just why they are one of the most popular underground acts in the UK right now. The crowd enjoyed the set, singing along and getting involved with the grungy rockers. At times, the vocals were lost in the mix but this did not impact too much on […]

The Xcerts live @ Heaven London

On Friday night, The Xcerts, offered a few hundred people a brilliant chance to escape from the cold outside. Playing every song from their brilliant 2018 release Hold On To Your Heart, the trio proved they have mastered the art of joyous rock music. Even with the attendance hampered by the bad weather, it was […]

Seaway Live at Stereo, Glasgow

Kicking off the proceedings were local punk-pop band Remind Me of Home. These guys always impress me and are getting better every time I see them. The newer songs are all heading in the right direction for me and are purely tantalizing when they throw in good harmonies. However, the lack of a sound check […]

Bowling For Soup, The Aquabats and Army Of Freshmen live in Cardiff!

Opening up the Get Happy Tour 2018 are Army Of Freshmen. Admittedly a band that I have never heard of previously and I’m ashamed of this fact especially given that they are kicking off their 20 year celebration on this tour. Their tracks are catchy and they really got the crowd going. The entire set is […]

Asking Alexandria & Black Veil Brides live at Manchester’s Academy 1

Tonight saw Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides– with excellent support from German sextet To the Rats and Wolves – descend on Manchester. Outside the Academy 1 venue, fans queue eagerly for hours – a fair few sporting black face paint in homage to BVB. Whilst the need for increased security is understandable and necessary, […]

On the back of their heavily acclaimed new record ‘Technology’, Don Broco who as a band have spent their entire career proving their doubters wrong showcased just how far they had come by playing to a sold-out venue...
