100-Word Review: The Roadkill – Reborn

Band of the Day back in April, I've finally got two minutes to dash off a quick review of their latest album! It's been out since the end of last year, so getting hold of a copy should be easy enough via the links at the end.

Tickets on pre-sale on the 19th, proper sale … Continue reading Volbeat + Hatebreed UK dates

Steel Panther / Skindred UK tour dates

Four dates from the modern-day Spandex warriors, Steel Panther. If I recall correctly, they did this last time around as well - one larger tour and a follow-up only a few months later. This time they bring dreadlock-metallers Skindred, who apparently got Download's main stage off to a good start yesterday. Reviews of their own … Continue reading Steel Panther / Skindred UK tour dates
