Enslaved / Grand Magus, The Button Factory, Dublin – 26/09/2015

Going from Evile to Enslaved was a bit of a genre clash for me last weekend. However, the gig itself was a strange one. This wasn’t just an Enslaved gig but was a joint headline show with Grand Magus. This felt like two totally different shows off the bat and …

Grand Magus – Interview with Fox (Dublin 13/03/2014)

Many people think that the life of a music journalist is a glamorous – jetting all over the world, interviewing ‘rock stars’ in exotic locations while sipping weirdly coloured cocktails… and for a select few it is like that (not least in their imaginations!).  But, for the majority of hacks …

Grand Magus – Voodoo Lounge, Dublin – 13/03/2014

It’s amazing the difference half an hour can make.  One disadvantage for those of us living in Belfast and wishing to attend gigs down the motorway in Dublin is the infrequency of late night return coach services from the Irish capital to that north of the border.  With the last …

Argus at Voodoo, Belfast – Sunday 13 October 2013

While I’ve often bemoaned poor attendances at gigs on ‘school nights’, it always pleasing to see some shows buck the trend, as it were, and so it is a genuine pleasure to be able to report, right at the outset, that, despite it being a Sunday, there was a very …
