Neshiima and Amongst Thieves at Ivory Blacks, Glasgow

For today's gig I headed to the Ivory Blacks, a venue I haven't visited much in Glasgow to see 12 Stories High, Amongst Thieves and Neshiima.

Mallory Knox @ Y Plas

Mallory Knox have enjoyed a successful year since the release of album Asymmetry in October 2014 and to finish 2015, the rock quintet embarked on an aptly named Homecoming tour with support from Scottish trio The Xcerts and Florida pop punkers Set It Off.

Ground Xero – Self-Titled EP (Track By Track)

The lads in Ground Xero put a lot of work into this release, and I do think that comes through. For a first attempt, it’s very impressive, and I am very proud of them, there was just a few things that I feel they could have improved upon.

State Champs, Knuckle Puck and Roam at King Tuts, Glasgow

Gareth Rooke attended the Pop Punk gig of a life time...ROAM, Knuckle Puck and State Champs! See what he thought of the three bands here...

V / Vega – Leaving Lyra

V Vega are definitely pushing the boundaries of progressive metal and on listening, if you’re a fan of bands like Young Guns but also something a lot heavier, this is definitely a must-listen!!

Underground Festival Review – Saturday

This review will cover the bands that I saw on Saturday at Underground Festival; a day that demonstrated the indie genre is very much alive and kicking.

Zephyr – An Odyssey For The Living

I can't say I'd heard of Zephyr before this review, but I'm glad I have now. Opening track Familiar Spirit instantly made me think of a hybrid mix of Napoleon, Architects, and While She Sleeps. Beautiful lead guitar work and sweeping synth sections set you on a journey that this EP seems to be.

Koshiro – Crown Of Venom

Adam Elston had a listen to Koshiro's EP 'Crown Of Venom'. Read what he thought here...

Never Found – Sorrow and Cyanide EP

The Welsh/Oxfordshire quartet Never Found release their hotly anticipated debut EP Sorrow & Cyanide on Halloween. This 4 track EP is a must listen for fans of Bullet for My Valentine and Aiden. Never Found have built a strong fan base through stints supporting artists including Ashestoangels, Fearless Vampire Killers and William Control.

My Redemption Fest Experience

I made a 'quick' trip down from Glasgow to Wakefield to this small festival that took place at the Warehouse 23. The festival was in aid of Barnsley and Wakefield Hospice.
