Festival Review: Slam Dunk North 2021

After what has been a very long wait, it was finally time for Slam Dunk North! My first festival since COVID rained down upon us and put a stop to all live music! Last year (well… 2019) our photographer said entry was super easy and didn’t take long to get parked at all so we … Continue reading Festival Review: Slam Dunk North 2021

Gig Review: Starset / Sick Joy – Manchester Academy (11th Feb 2020)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I do like it when people turn up to see the support band(s). Entering Manchester Academy 2 to at least a half full venue, I noticed the diversity in the crowd. From full goth, to bright cheery colours, to simple casual attire, everyone came together for … Continue reading Gig Review: Starset / Sick Joy – Manchester Academy (11th Feb 2020)

Gig Review: Motionless in White / Skold / Defying Decay – Stylus, Leeds (9th December 2019)

So, I’m going to start this review with a word that describes the entire night… Eccentric!

The last time I saw Skillet was in Spokane over the summer, and I’m sure they just keep getting better. With this show having sold out months ago, it was no surprise the massive queues of … Continue reading Gig Review: Skillet / Devour the Day – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire (10th December 2019)

Gig Review: The Rasmus / Eddie Stoilow – O2 Ritz, Manchester (7th October 2019)

Entering any venue without having to rush or miss the first act is a definite positive to only having two bands on the line up. Once we entered the 02 Ritz there was a massive queue forming for the merch stand which didn’t ease until the first band of the night, Eddie Stoilow, took the … Continue reading Gig Review: The Rasmus / Eddie Stoilow – O2 Ritz, Manchester (7th October 2019)

Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 4

From our two trips to Nova Rock Festival there seems to be two common themes. The first being that Cory Taylor will inevitably be on one of the stages at some point over the weekend with either Slipknot or Stone Sour and the second being that the Austrians will be up early on the final … Continue reading Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 4
