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.

Joe Lynn Turner live in Athens 2017

Joe Lynn Turner is one of the few remaining old cut heroes, a singer’s singer, a man who despite all the critique that he’s received from silly “metal” journalists about being a poseur, has made em shut their traps, by being professional and always delivering second to none performances of all the songs he’s ever sung… remember “kids” the guy came from a different...

Sabaton & Accept live in Athens 2017

A lot of hardcore Sabaton fans were waiting like crazy for the next “battle” of the Swedes in Athens, while a lot of old schoolers were more than bitter if not a bit angry that a form of one of their favorite bands (sporting a quite different lineup that previously, with only 2 original members) was to support them and if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m talking...

Helstar live in Athens, Greece 2017

Truth be spoken, the fact that Helstar were to play a show in Athens, wasn’t full advertised and in a conjunction with other factors (ie quite a few “big” gigs around the time), a football match and the general misery, didn’t contribute to the turnout being too great.

Epica live in Baltimore, Maryland 2016

In 2015, Epica was touring with Eluveitie and The Agonist. They were scheduled to visit Baltimore, but sadly vocalist Simone Simons had to return to the Netherlands for a family emergency, so they had to drop out of the tour.
