Headless Kross – Belfast, Voodoo – 30 July 2016

For Glaswegian doom mongers Headless Kross, their annual trips to the island of Ireland have become something of a pilgrimage. This evening their latest visit is well-rewarded, as, despite the gig’s early hour, Voodoo’s intimate upstairs club is rammed almost to capacity with those who enjoy their rock at the …

Desecration – Belfast, Voodoo 19/02/2014

School night gigs in Belfast – possibly in common with most other locales – are notoriously difficult to fill, unless of course they involve a “big name” touring band.  But, increasingly, Thursday nights seem to be becoming the “new Friday” and so a healthy crowd of 70 or so grinders …

Portrait – Belfast, Voodoo 01/02/2015

Portrait live at Voodoo, Belfast 1 February 2015

I suppose, in the interests of journalistic impartiality, we better start this review with a declaration of interest, and that is that Terminus bassist David McCallum is a PlanetMosh contributor.  The band play with a dark, thumping groove that has a ball-shaking intensity and equally dense and brooding vocals, delivered …

Hornets + Slomatics + Zlatanera – Belfast, Voodoo 30/1/2015

As the last remnants of what laughingly passed for “Snowmageddon” melted, turning Belfast’s streets to slush and ice, the city’s metallians and assorted other freaks braved the nevertheless freezing temperatures to head to the venue that is fast becoming the local mecca for same, the now iconic upstairs club room …

Bloodshot Dawn – Belfast, Voodoo, 27/10/2014

Bloodshot Dawn - Voodoo, Belfast 27-10-2014

I’m a great believer that when you go to a gig you should make every effort to see and support every band on the bill… but, sometimes circumstances conspire against you. And so it was that, due to a scheduling conflict, as Belfast’s own Overoth (pictured left) took to the …

Maverick – Belfast, Voodoo 05/09/2014

Maverick

Sometimes it is those things that are relatively unplanned – such as that impromptu meet up after work for “a couple of pints” – which turn out to be the most enjoyable.  And so it proved with this evening, which originally was scheduled to headlined by a “tribute” band, only …

Safe Ships – Belfast, Voodoo – 21/08/2014

Safe Ships gig poster

It was William Shakespeare (and how many times would you expect to see The Bard quoted on PlanetMosh?) who penned that immortal line about parting being such sweet sorrow… tonight, marked a parting of the ways for Belfast-based Safe Ships, as half of the band members prepare to return to …

Rape Crisis Centre gig poster

For those of a superstitious mien, Friday the 13th is not exactly a lucky talisman – and so it proves, at least partially, for the organizers of this charity fundraiser gig (in aid of the hugely-underfunded Belfast Rape Crisis Centre) as, despite huge advance marketing and PR campaigns, other mitigating …

Altus – Exclusive PlanetMosh interview

Altus

Having appeared from apparently out of nowhere less than six months ago, Altus have taken the Northern Ireland scene by the scruff of the neck and given it a jolly good old-fashioned seeing to!  They’ve certainly made some waves in that short period time – with threats of legal action …

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 …

Sworn Amongst/Awaken Dominion/Katabolisis/By Conquest Or Consent/All The Kings Ashes – Voodoo, Belfast – 10/10/13

Torche + Axis Of + Dott – Voodoo, Belfast – 22 August 2013

Over the past couple of years, Voodoo – a converted restaurant just off Belfast’s main shopping thoroughfare – has become one of my favourite venues in my home city.  Having rapidly established itself as the hangout of choice for a large proportion of the local rock and metal fraternity, it’s …

Walking Papers with Buffalo Summer – Voodoo Belfast, 12th June 2013

Walking Papers with Buffalo Summer – Voodoo Belfast, 12th June 2013

When Walking Papers were first announced for Voodoo Belfast it seemed like the listing had been an error, given the personnel in the band and the relatively small size of the venue. This coupled with the fact that a week or two later it was announced that thrash giants Slayer were …
