Dead Poet Society has that raw, yet clear sound that deserves attention. From the opening songs like the bluesy “Lo Air” with it’s to and for energy, “Sound and Silence” anthem like chorus, to the pop-like “American Blood”, DPS caught the attention of the Milwaukee crowd quickly.  Set list: Lo Air… Read More

From the moment that Toxic Holocaust took the stage, they grabbed the audience and refused to let go. This trio led by bassist Joel Grind certainly meant business tonight and were clearly on top of their game. Their blend of punk and thrash were the perfect musical recipe to get the crowd going.… Read More

The room was filling up already, which can be unusual for the first band, Tequila Mockingbyrd. It’s great to see another kick-ass girl rock band on a big stage, always need more! Blue lights flooded the stage as they start to play. Their bouncy songs and performance was full of energy, making them… Read More

We were treated to a quick 20 minute taster set by Oxygen Thief. The contrast between the bright flashes of the strobe lighting and the dark room, complimented their heavy yet bouncy music style. Oxygen Thief are a folk punk and rock band, interchanging between acoustic and electric. Barry Dolan… Read More

Taking things from the start, the opening act, The Price, gave a good performance, but only for a limited crowd (supposedly due to the early opening on a weekday). Their mixture of alternative-meets-nu metal-meets-post grunge proved quite interesting, testifying for a band with talent. We might… Read More

Wayne Hussey and Evi Vine performed in a cozy live space on the second floor of the pub and one is immediately relaxed by the intimate feeling of venue. No hustle and bustle of crowds or deafening murmuring, just a real sense of peace. The atmosphere was an almost perfect overture for the tone of… Read More

Feeling rather rough and exhausted from the previous’ days offering of righteous power metal and blistering thrash (among other things), I fell headfirst out of my tent in Valhalla camp so that I could catch Krysthla on the main stage, which is potentially the smallest act to play BOA since the… Read More

Since 2015, Bloodstock has grown incapacity, and this year’s event had its fair share of controversies. The most high-profile being the inevitable booking of their first metalcore headliner, Parkway Drive, at the expense of many enraged ‘true metal’ fans, as well as numerous band drop-outs beyond… Read More

Baroness’ fans came out in droves to catch their favorite band play. With little fanfare, the band made their way onto the stage. While their entrance may not have been dramatic, from the moment they plugged in their instruments and kicked off the night with “A Horse Called Golgatha”, that’s when… Read More

This tour is in support of their debut full-length album, “Conjure the Storm”, which was released on June 7th this year. Vocalist and only guitarist in the band, Scott Eames, came on stage wearing a… Read More

Without a support band to get things going, despite an initial announcement that there would be (opening act-s), Skid Row came on stage at around 22.30 after a taped intro of the Ramone’s “Blitzkrieg Bop” had finished playing. Inside people were so tightly packed together that even attempting to go… Read More
