Taste of Chaos 2010

[Full gallery within this Flickr set] Saturday was a belter with a 4-band show at the Glasgow SECC. We missed Halestorm due to public transport issues, but they were the only band we knew nothing about so it's not the end of the world. Heard good things about them afterwards though. Our opening band were … Continue reading Taste of Chaos 2010

Hatebreed – Glasgow Garage

[More pics in this Flickr set] The weather sucked, but I still managed to make it along the M8 to Glasgow for the Hatebreed gig. The motorway was like driving on unsurfaced back streets. Only slippy.

One of the original Big Four, starting in the Bay Area at the same time as Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica they just never seemed to catch the wave those … Continue reading Exodus – Glasgow G2

Annihilator – Glasgow Garage, Nov 14th 2010

[Photos: Flickr set for the gig] Just a quickie little review of a great little show. The last time I saw Annihilator (in fact I think the last time they were in the UK) was around 20 years ago. I saw them opening for Judas Priest on their Painkiller tour at Newcastle City Hall. If … Continue reading Annihilator – Glasgow Garage, Nov 14th 2010
