Gig Review: The Three Tremors / Vice – Bannermans, Edinburgh (12th February 2020)

Back at my home from home tonight for what should be an amazing night of metal with The Three Tremors consisting of Tim 'Ripper' Owens, Sean Peck and Harry Conklin on vocals complete with Sean’s Cage band backing them up, so a full stage tonight.

Gig Review: Blaze Bayley / Vice – Ivory Blacks, Glasgow (10th April 2019)

I don't head out to many gigs these days, but after being absolutely blown away by Blaze's performance at Sabaton Open Air last year, I wasn't going to miss out on a full headlining show. As a bonus, Manchester's Vice were opening (the support band varies across the tour) and I've also enjoyed seeing them … Continue reading Gig Review: Blaze Bayley / Vice – Ivory Blacks, Glasgow (10th April 2019)

Gig Review: HRH Metal (Topher’s View) – O2 Academy Birmingham (17-18 Feb 2018)

Combining some of rock and metal's most powerful tones, Vice bring with them a collection of sounds that when combined together create a torrent of "Wrath" that without question bring forth something incredible and … Continue reading Review: Vice – The First Chapter

Bloodstock 2016 – Saturday (Ross and James’s view)

Blowing the cobwebs away after Twisted Sister’s dominating performance, Black Ink Sun are Saturday’s opening band on the New Blood stage. They bring a massive sound loaded with grooves and it reminds me of Lamb of God to the point you could imagine Randy Blythe strutting across the stage. A band of that quality is … Continue reading Bloodstock 2016 – Saturday (Ross and James’s view)
