Kreator live in Athens 2018

On a chilly Sunday afternoon and after suffering a fuse blow-out or something of the sort that put my car out of service, I took the tube out to Keramikos station to catch Kreator on their n-th performance upon Greek soil (a quick estimate, is thirteen or so shows?) some 5 or so years since the last time they were in Athens.

Helloween (Pumkins United Tour) live in Sofia 2017

Watching Helloween perform with an invigorated lineup, utilizing the “strengths” of longtime “prodigal sons, Kai Hansen and Michael “Mici” Kiske must have been one of the most requested “reunions” in quite a while and to be quite honest, despite having witnessed the band numerous times with Andi Deris and the other two guys, often blasting out the odd hit as an...

Lacuna Coil live in Athens 2017

With the country ravaged by torrential rains on a daily basis, my mood had gone suitably somber, so I was sort of almost unwilling to dislodge myself from bed to go to the gig, which must be a “first” of sorts… I did and thanks to it being a Sunday, traffic wasn’t too bad, so I managed to get to Piraeus Academy relatively quickly and even find a park right in front...

Threshold live in Athens 2017

A night to remember – for various reasons! It was 1999 when I first bought “Psychedelicatesen”, which was my first contact with the band, in a small record store in Coventry. You see, at that time we didn’t have the opportunity to “taste” the bands before we head to the record store. So, I had heard that Threshold were touted to be the “European Dream Theater” and I...

Wintersun live in Athens 2017

Talk about an eventful night! First thing first, before going to the show I had an emergency with a water pipe bursting, outside my home that needed immediate attention, so I was sure that I would be “late” to the show; having dealt with that, I got into the car and headed down to Piraeus Academy, only to receive a message midway by a friend that, because the bus...

Arch Enemy live in Athens 2017

Arch Enemy is a bit of an international band of musicians that are still based out of Sweden for all intents and purposes even when most of its current members are not Swedes. They’ve been a band for some twenty five years and even if they didn’t try too hard the inclusion of a “woman” in a fledgling up-and-coming band back in the early 00’s was a stroke of genius...

Vans Warped Tour 2017

The pinnacle of Summer Music Festivals visited the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland on July 16th. Like a summer storm, the Vans Warped Tour swept into town quickly and provided its own version of thunder and lightning throughout the afternoon and evening as over 60 bands played on five stages.

Metal Church live in Athens 2017

Well, it wasn’t a first, by all means their first time here as the band did perform in what seems to be an eternity ago, back in 1994 along with Vicious Rumors, Zodiac Mindwrap and PD’s Killers, but it had been way too long and in the meantime, a gazillion things had happened… since from the band breaking up and reuniting to their original vocalist dying and so on...

Tool live at Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania, 2017

Tool is a remarkable band. They burst onto the music scene in the early 1990’s when grunge rock was soaring and hard rock bands filled the airwaves. Many were introduced to Tool through MTV, when they saw the music video for “Sober” for the first time. The video was unlike any other, featuring a dark, disturbing claymation character that slogged through a pretend...

Mastodon, Opeth, Gojira & Eagles Of Death Metal live in Philadelphia, US, 2017

When I first saw the tour poster, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Mastodon, Opeth, Gojira, Eagles Of Death Metal, The Devin Townsend Project and Russian Circles playing together, in Philadelphia? For me it was a show not to be missed and many others agreed as it sold out quickly.
