Battleaxe – Heavy Metal Sanctuary

@PlanetMosh gives 5 star rating for .@Battleaxe2010 – Heavy Metal Sanctuary With a band called Battleaxe and an album titled Heavy Metal Sanctuary I was not expecting Nickelback type rock but was not expecting just how over the top it is. If it was any more metal it would take …

@PlanetMosh reviews .@MonsterMagnetNJ show in Wolverhampton One of a brace of UK gigs (the other being at The Koko in London), Monster Magnet made it their mission to lay waste to the packed out Wulfrun Hall which they did with ease. Lead by the charismatic riff lord Dave Wyndorf  when …

Flotsam And Jetsam – No Place For Disgrace 2014.

Their ground breaking 1986 debut Doomsday For The Deceiver was always going to be a tough act to follow especially when bassist and chief songwriter Jason Newsted left Flotsam And Jetsam to join Metallica but 3 years later they certainly came up with the goods with No Place For Disgrace, …

Steel Threads – For Those Who Are Left.

It is only February and already I may have found my album of the year! ‘For Those Who Are Left‘ is the 2nd studio album by Steel Threads. The band describe themselves as a “Power folk/rock band using guitar/violin and vocal harmony to create uniqueness”. That statement perfectly sums them …

Exhumer – Degraded By Sepsis.

On seeing the band name, I confused Exhumer with thrash metal legends Exumer but as the disturbing soundbites of album opener ‘Admire Your Ending’ fade into the barrage of blast beats of ‘Vapours Of Cadaveric Mucilage’, this is a completely different animal altogether. Death metal in it’s purest form can …

In Solitude – Sister.

On seeing the name In Solitude, I was expecting a doom metal type of band but as the jarring and chiming chords of opening track ‘He Comes’ lead into a Gothic vibe similar  Zeppelin’s ‘Going To California, my initial assumption was completely wrong. Their  3rd full length album Sister, released …

FM + Toby Jepson – The Box, Crewe – 07/12/2013

Judging by the amount of people crammed into The Box on this Saturday night, it should be renamed The Sweat Box! It just goes to show the popularity of veteran UK  AOR band FM. Maybe they do not get 4 page spreads in certain magazines anymore  but this is the …

The Damned + Ruts DC – The Tivoli, Buckley, 01/12/2013

On arriving at the venue to request my reviewer’s pass i was asked why a webzine like Planetmosh would want to do a write up of The Damned. Maybe it was my long hair  that got the question asked but at the end of the day I love The Damned, …

Soldier – Dogs Of War.

Back in the day when the NWOBHM movement kicked off there was no internet easily available so I had to rely on music magazines like Sounds, Kerrang, Melody Maker, NME, Record Mirror etc. for information. So all i really knew about Soldier was their 45rpm single release Sheralee which caused …

Ted Nugent – Ultralive Ballisticrock.

I’ve been a fan of Ted Nugent for at least 35 years, bought all his albums and 6 of these  have been live  so to me it seemed a strange decision to release another one especially as the concert was recorded over 2 years ago on his I Still Believe …

Metalwave UK – Circus Tavern, Purfleet, Essex, 05/10/2013

So was getting up at 5am to catch a 6.30am train from Crewe to Purfleet,Essex for a gig worth the effort? It certainly was and i’d do it again at the drop of a hat if there is (and hopefully there will be) another Metalwave UK in 2014! Billed as …

Gary Moore – Back On The Streets (expanded CD reissue).

When my promo copy of Back On The Streets arrived it was like a visit from an old friend! I had the vinyl format many years ago but mislaid it and never replaced it. It is hard to believe it was released almost 35yrs ago,produced by Chris Tsangarides and Gary …

Onslaught – “VI”

If ever the name of a band can describe their music then Onslaught certainly fit the bill judging by the ferocity of the material on their 6th studio album aptly titled “VI”. There have been some excellent thrash metal albums released in 2013 and “VI” is a worthy addition to …
