Live Review GENRE ARCHIVES

Motionless In White supported by Ice Nine Kills and Cane Hill @ O2 Academy Bristol

Opening with Communion Of The Cursed, Ice Nine Kills kick things off with a bang! Straight away grabbing the near capacity crowds interest with huge riffs and beautifully contrasting vocals. Frontman Spencer Charnas commands the stage and crowd like it’s second nature. Enjoy Your Slay is a particular highlight, paying homage to The Shining. The triple vocals work […]

Creeper live @ Shepherds Bush Empire

Creeper surpassed their sky high expectations with a sensational show on the London stop of their Theatre of Fear tour. Supported by Nervus, Microwave and Can’t Swim, Creeper headlined what is sure to be considered one of the highlights of 2017, for all of the close to 2000 capacity crowd. Opening the night were Nervus. […]

ROAM & WSTR live at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

Unfortunately, we missed openers Stand Atlantic due to a Christmas celebration held in aid of the Womanby Street campaign and Cardiff being named a designated music city but the general consensus of the crowd we spoke to was that they were really good. WSTR take to the stage to chants of their name from the […]

Ho99o9 live at The Electric Ballroom – London

It’s a cold dark night in Camden North London, it’s spooky, scary and would befit any Halloween tour or midnight walk. But, this isn’t Halloween, this is pure hardcore heavy distorted metal trapped in the body of hip hop. This is Brooklyn’s very own, Ho99o9. We of Alt-Corner are here. The Electric Ballroom has been […]

HIM with support from Biters live at Rock City, Nottingham

Atlanta rockers Biters take to the stage to the sound of Ace Of Spades. They begin with frontman Tuk telling the audience how this is a special occasion before heading into some good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. The overall reaction from the crowd is quite tame, which is a shame as the band really put […]

Kerrang! Tour live at Y Plas, Cardiff!

We start the night a band down as Scottish rockers Vukovi are unable to make the show due to the adverse weather conditions. Opening up this year’s Kerrang! Tour are Welsh group Casey who get things off to a flying start. Playing what is practically a hometown show, its no surprise that most people actively […]

Bayside & I The Mighty @ The Garage – London

A double header here tonight as two great acts feature on this bill here at The Garage in London I The Mighty casually stroll on stage with most simplicity letting the feedback ring before they unleash their melodic compositions and tight harmonies, which has a few heads turning in amazement, not expecting to find themselves […]

Disposable live at Fuel, Cardiff!

Walking into Fuel almost halfway through the opening set due to extra artists being added to the bill and trains being delayed, I’m met with a brutal assault from Spanish metallers Homizide! I honestly can’t find the words to describe just how brutal they are! But one thing I can say is, that for someone […]

Jingle Bell Brawl @ Roadtrip & The Workshop

It’s a cold night here in the streets of London, as I brawl my way to Jingle Bell Brawl at Roadtrip & The Workshop in Old Street, showcasing 4 upcoming artists in the heavier spectrum of music.   Take The Backseat, Casey start the night off a little later than scheduled as some early supporters […]

Gorillaz at Manchester Arena

2D, Noodle, Murdoc, and Russel (and an incredibly talented live band) took to Manchester Arena on the 1st December for a night of animated fun. The only permanent member of the band, Damon Albarn, spent most of the night sing-rapping along, playing keyboard and guitar, and jumping around the stage, and generally being an excellent front-man; […]

Normandie, William Ryan Key & Grumble Bee live at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

Opening the show is Grumble Bee performing an acoustic set. It’s literally dead quiet in the venue as all eyes and ears are on Jack, admiring his incredible vocals and songwriting ability, with his mum even listening in on the phone. It’s not the first time I’ve seen a Grumble Bee acoustic set but it’s […]

Follow You Home, Live at The Hairy Dog, Derby

Kicking off the night was Sixth Letter. This Rap metal or should I call it nu-metal band came out firing on all cylinders. Along with their music were very fun and entertaining jokes I’m sure I would have got if I was a local. Not sure what “fuck the cheeses” is about but, when in […]

Drowned Out at Live at Cathouse, Glasgow

Starting the night off was Entry Room. They had an awesome vocalist who remind me of Matt Bellamy (Muse). The guitar play was a bit basic and the drum play was too soft for my liking. Good set but need to do more that rely on the vocals. But hats off to them for not […]

Courage My Love, live at Garage Attic, Glasgow

Starting The night off was local pop punks Wasted Summer. The one thing that instantly catches your attention about this band is Steph’s impressive vocals, she is able to mix it up with holding those notes or add grit for some edginess. However, tonight was not her greatest performance, as at times her breathing let her down […]

The Courtesans, Bullet Height & Digital Criminals @ The Moon, Cardiff

Opening the show tonight are Pontypool rockers Digital Criminals. They’re entertaining and show off some of their talent during their short set with frontwoman Emily Bates commanding the floor in front of the stage well. The only downpoint of their set was the length, with all sets having to be cut short due to curfew.
