Festival Review: Steelhouse 2018 – Sunday

Rain continues to batter Steelhouse but its attendees take it in their stride. Weather like this seems to be the norm for the festival. With luck being on the side of the bands yesterday (mostly), it’s not so much today. Having caught up on the news after the festival, it seems The Quireboys got stranded … Continue reading Festival Review: Steelhouse 2018 – Sunday

Video Roundup: Al-Namrood, Mason Hill, Hypochristmutreefuzz, Dendera, Russkaja, City of Ashes

Time to chuck another half-dozen visual delicacies your way... Al-Namrood - "Bat Al Tha ar Nar Muheja" Not a new track, this one's from 2014, but it just came our way and I had to include it. Extreme / death metal with a Middle-eastern tinge, this genuinely sounds original. The band themselves are from Saudi … Continue reading Video Roundup: Al-Namrood, Mason Hill, Hypochristmutreefuzz, Dendera, Russkaja, City of Ashes
