Slayer at Belfast Limelight Wednesday June 6th, 2013

Slayer lived up to their legendary status and there were certainly no elements of negativity voiced in the after show fan debates in the bar next door. My son popped his Slayer live cherry, and we both survived the experience. The band have announced a quick return to our shores in August, and this show has also rapidly sold out. Highlight of the night had to be standing shoulder with my eldest thrashing it up to the double header of “Mandatory Suicide” and “Chemical Warfare”-Thrash the musical genre that traverses the years and unifies generations.

Black Star Riders – All Hell Breaks Loose Album Launch Party, Milton Keynes on Thursday, May 30th, 2013

In conclusion the evening delivered quality entertainment, and like everybody else that had witnessed the Black Star Riders introductory performance I would be proud to say as per the official event badge and T-shirt that “I was there” “Bound for Glory”? I think that Black Star Riders wont be long in achieving that status, already on the way with current chart placing of the “All Hell Breaks Loose” release. Successfully bridging the past and present of the band this marks a new and exciting chapter in their history, inevitable world domination waits!!!

Suicidal Tendencies on The Slam City Tour 2013 at Amo’s South End, Charlotte, NC April 26th, 2013

Now for the actual music: despite the fact that I am a huge Rocky George fan and he’s now playing with Fishbone, and despite my misgivings from my prior time of seeing ST, I’m here to tell you, they were tight as a mofo!!! And if I’m not mistaken it wasn’t until about the third song that Mike spoke to the crowd at any great length, but most of his rants were kept short.The setlist was the highlight of the night for me. They played classic stuff,more recent songs, as well as a few from their new album. All era’s blended so well. The band he has assembled right now is insanely talented

Death Angel/Threat Signal/Bonded By Blood/Wretched/Potential Threat/SkinKage: The Ultra Violence Tour 2012 Concert Review

They went straight into The Ultra Violence album. These songs bring back so many great memories from back in the day for me. This was one of my favorite tapes when I was in high school, and remains one of my favorites to this day. We had already decided we would see this show, but when we saw they were playing this album all the way through it clinched it for us

Kreator, Accept and Swallow the Sun: Teutonic Terror Attack 2012 Concert Review

it was shocking that Accept didn’t end the show as it made more sense they would be more known in the area than Kreator. But even if the numbers had dwindled some, they still got a great reception, and had a pretty decent pit going. If you’re a fan of this band and not seen them live, do yourself a favor and rectify that if and when they come to your area.
