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.

The Movielife @ The Joiners, Southampton

Long Island emo legends The Movielife returned to the stage they last played fifteen years ago this week to kick off a run of UK dates in support of their comeback record Cities in Search of a Heart.   Things kick off with an intense and atmospheric performance from the mysterious Guillotine, this quartet specialise […]

LENMANIA @ The Dome, London

On Saturday November 11th, Jamie Lenman curated and headlined his own all-day festival, appropriately titled LENMANIA. The day saw an eclectic collection of British artists playing across two stages, The Dome and the Boston Music Room in London’s Tufnell Park. We went along to check out everything the afternoon had in store.   “Thanks for […]

Eighteen Visions @ The Underworld London

Counting Days hit the stage hard to a crowd I could count before the opening song rings the last note really generating the setting of a classic DIY Hardcore show where everyone is dotted around the floor area shyly head banging in appreciation while the band do all the hard work in giving 100% of […]

Our Last Night, Holding Absence & New Volume @ O2 Institute Birmingham

Opening up the first date of the UK leg of the Selective Hearing UK tour are South African born, London-based rockers New Volume. This is the trio’s 27th date of the run and it may as well have been their first with the epic performance they gave! While the crowd may have been a bit […]

Employed To Serve @ Rebellion, Manchester

Since the release of their debut album Greyer Than You Remember in 2015, Employed To Serve have risen to the top of the British underground hardcore scene now even at the lofty heights of being featured on Kerrang! covers which, given the nature of the abrasive and aggressive music they produce is no mean feat. […]
