For some bizarre reason I was under the impression of a starting time at 20.30 (so I missed the beginning of Thy Darkened Shade’s set, which was deeply disappointing as they were the one out of two Greek openers that were opening and the one that seemed more compatible to Watain’s style. Their… Read More

Starting off the set with the high-energy tune “Sugar Rush”, the audience understood rapidly that Daxx & Roxane was going to give them everything they’ve got – and they were more than happy to accept this offer!   The one-hour set was a mix of their classic anthems, a few exciting new ones and… Read More

Opening his set with a joyous run through of Muddy Water’s “Tiger In Your Tank” , Joe proceeds to play a superb set of songs from his most recent album “Blues of Desperation”. While the album is very good, it’s live that the songs really come into their own, with a horn section giving them that… Read More

I was able to walk into the club, midway through Crossing Eternity’s short set. The Swedish/Romanian combo forms a rather decent prog power band, with cool ideas and more than adequate chops.

As I entered the venue, the stairs lead straight down, I could hear the enticing rumble of drums and bass. The smoke started creeping up the stairs to meet me, as the sound grew louder. The whole room was filled with a thick haze, carrying the eerie green light through it. Creating an intriguing… Read More

First to take the stage would be Fates Warning. With a back drop and both kick drum heads painted to look like the album cover of their latest release “Theories of Flight”, it was no surprise that the first number they performed was “From the Rooftops”. This is not a band known for their flashy… Read More

We were all waiting around in baited anticipation, watching for movement by the stage. Then suddenly the lights and music go down, and cheers start calling out. They walked out onto the darkened stage one by one, Satchel and Foxx stand on either side of Stix on raised platforms at the back of the… Read More

As the red lights flooded the stage and out into the room, we just see the drummer. After a few moments, the rest of the band hit the stage. To the deafening screaming and cheering of their fans, from their first step out on to the stage. Obscura went right up to the front of the stage, and launch… Read More

Buckcherry they have sold out shows across their country and tonight they waste no time in showing everyone that they are all about kicking it off with a cover of “Head Like a Hole” from Nine Inch Nails, which is somewhat unexpected but absolutely loved as opener, I think it gave the right kick to… Read More
