Review: Chaos Divine – Colliding Skies

Chaos Divine may not be a band you’ve heard of before. Certainly I haven’t. Describing themselves on their Facebook page as “progressive hard rock”, I’d say they weren’t too far off the mark. Citing both prog and heavy influences such as Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Gojira and Mastodon, they fuse together to make a great … Continue reading Review: Chaos Divine – Colliding Skies

Royal Blood – Barrowland Ballroom, Glasgow (22nd Feb 2015)

It’s just after 19:00 and I’ve wandered round to the Barrowlands on a Sunday evening to see Royal Blood, a band who has exploded onto the scene. After showing my ID and tickets (to stop touting), I climbed the stairs into the ballroom area and it was pretty empty. Surprising.

Review: The Answer – Raise a Little Hell

After a short but rousing set at last year’s Download, they won me over and I devoured their previous four albums to discover a band full of hard rocking gems and some beautiful ballads. Given the new album is entitled Raise a Little Hell, I was … Continue reading Review: The Answer – Raise a Little Hell

It’s 17:00, people donned in black are already lining up to get into Glasgow’s O2 ABC in a couple of hours to watch Zakk Wylde and his band of brothers deliver riff after riff. However, I was lucky enough to be led past them and up to where the action will take place tonight as … Continue reading Interview: Brandon Yeagley of Crobot
