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, […]

Don Broco @ O2 Academy Bristol

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...

Marmozets live @ ULU

Marmozets proved that they are destined for bigger things with a triumphant show at the sold out ULU. Following the release of Knowing What You Know Now the quintet have an arsenal of songs that some bands could only wish for in their entire career. Opening the show were Marmozets’ touring friends, Queen Zee. Their […]

Dead! @ The 100 Club, London

Dead! put on a killer show at their biggest headline show at the 100 Club in London. After the release of their hard-hitting new album The Golden Age Of Not Even Trying, Dead! debuted some of killer new tracks of the album like The Boys The Boys, W9 and Petrol And Anaesthetic along with the […]

Lacuna Coil live at Kentish Town Forum, London

Lacuna Coil’s 119th show was undoubtedly one of the weirdest gigs I have been to in the most incredible way. Not only was the music brilliant, they put on what felt like a musical theatre production throughout the show. During the concert, the band were backed by an imaginative array of circus acts including an […]

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 […]
