Hellfest Open Air, Part 2 – Saturday, June 21st 2014

>The morning after the night before, and there were some very hungover faces walking through the campsite and the odd couple who looked like they hadn’t gone to bed yet. They probably hadn’t either. Still, Day 2 of Hellfest was upon us, the sun was shining again and there were …

Lionize - Jetpack Soundtrack Artwork

The music business is a bit like politics, in that it is incestuous and often works on the basis of “it’s who you know not…” etc.  Take the example of Weathermaker Music, for example:  until now, every release issued by the label has had a direct link to Clutch (the …

Interview with Badmotorfinger

Channeling the testosterone fuelled, bluesy grooves of Motörhead, with a pinch of James Hetfield vocal snarl and a Guns N’ Roses swagger, Badmotorfinger have impressed greatly with their debut album, It’s Not The End. Founded and built around two brothers, the Italian quintet started out life as a covers band …

Blackmores Night – Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton – 1st July 2013

The night kicked off with the support band – Revellion, or rather a pair of musicians from the band.  They introduced themselves as wynndebagge (Bagpipes and more) & skynntite (drums and more).  They played various medieval instruments, but were as much of a stand-up comedy routine as they were musicians, …

This fifth studio album from Polish progressive rockers Riverside – their first since 2009’s ‘Anno Domini High Definition’, which charted at number one in their native Poland – is an interesting beast, drawing as it does on a myriad of influences, from underground central European jazz through English folk music …
