5: The Gray Chapter

The words ‘comeback album’ are very often banded around the music industry for a number of quite trivial reasons. Hindsight generally plays a big role in this, particularly if it’s a case of the artist or band merely needing to sell more copies of the album than the previous release or if it needs to be stronger on a musical basis. That said, there are a good number of…

Alestorm - Belfast, Mandela Hall, 17/10/2014

Alestorm – Belfast, Mandela Hall, 17/10/2014

According to historical records, pirates (at least in their commonly perceived historical incarnation) may have sailed into many ports but they never quite ventured as far north as Britain – and certainly never as far as the shores of what, at that time, would have been Carrickfergus Bay.

Southern Melodic Hardcorers ‘A Room Swept White’ unleash their jaw dropping new EP ‘No Love Lost’ on Monday 12th January 2015. Taking from the edginess and potency of While She Sleeps and The Ghost Inside, and by adding their own absorbing dynamics and alluring melodies, the quintet have produced a forceful fusion of Post-Hardcore.

A Room Swept White were originally born at the tail-end of 2011…

Modern Vintage

Following on from 2011’s ‘This is Gonna Hurt’, Sixx:A.M. have returned with their third full length album; Modern Vintage which is out now.

From the very first track ‘Stars’ the listener is under no illusion that this is a record full of big sounding choruses and catchy hooks. James Michael’s vocals are exemplary and suit the music perfectly, DJ Ashba’s guitar work is technically…

Riwen – Riwen

This is one of those three track E.P.’s that certainly leaves you clambering for more. As fast as a speeding bullet from the off, ballads sure are not the order of the day, with brutal riffs a plenty, over spilling with dynamic quality and precision, to get you up and jumping to the rafters.

Opening track, ‘Nature Calls Us’is a searing piece of work, throat busting vocals over a manic…

Knighthood, Bad Habits


From the first pluck of the strings, I just knew this was going to be a good album. With raunchy, lascivious little Bad Habits bringing to mind all manner of naughtiness, this is one earthy showcase of what real retro rock sounds like!

I’ve said this before, and forgive me for repeating myself, but Franks singing voice is just pure rock n roll. I really do believe he should be in the top five…

Anti-Nowhere League – Manchester Academy 3, 16th October 2014

@louelladeville_ @planetmosh review of @antinowhere and #DeadObjectives @MancAcademy

It was a miserable evening as I battled the traffic heading to Manchester Academy 3 to see the Anti-Nowhere League (ANL), but it didn’t deter a long queue of gig goers for the adjacent Academy 1. Whilst it wasn’t the first time I’ve seen ANL play in Manchester, as I’ve seen them supporting both Motorhead and…

Sentinel – ‘Mutually Assured Destruction’

When I first came across young Armagh metallians Sentinel, opening a charity gig in Belfast, I must admit that I wasn’t overly impressed:  but then, as I said, they are young (drummer Jordie Kelly is still only 15!) and it was only their third ever live performance…

Sometimes, no matter how well you think you know your local music scene, you suddenly find you don’t know it quite so well as you did, as something comes completely out of left field and makes you ask “where the fuck did that come from?”.
