Turisas, Revoker and Astro Henge live at Rock City Nottingham, UK on October 10th, 2013

Dubbed as being one of the most charismatic bands on the scene today, I could easily see why, as all that Tunisas are, is captured in their live act, fun, energetic, powerful and above all, a way for a crowd to let go and enjoy themselves, for the hour or so they are with the band. A Top night of BATTLE METAL was had by all!

Soundgarden and Graveyard live at O2, Dublin on September 16th, 2013

Thankfully not as they came back out a few minutes later to fly into Rusty Cage, a personal favourite of mine, but then killed all of the energy they had going with Like Suicide, which don’t get me wrong is a song I really like, but it’s a bit of a downer in an encore. The show ended with Beyond the Wheel and then a really annoying 10 minutes plus of an aural assault with just Ben and Kim on stage backs to the crowd and a lot of puzzled looks going on. The weird and at times wonderful Soundgarden for me at least just didn’t hit enough highs tonight, not a bad gig, but certainly not blown away either. Till next time I live in hope.
