Volbeat and Iced Earth at Birmingham O2 Arena, UK on October 16th, 2013

“If a band sound as good live, as they do on the CD, they’re all right in my book” and they do sound every bit as good as their albums, if not better live! To sum up Volbeat, these guys are true romantics and this can be heard in their material, which helps them to appeal on a grand scale, but its how they write and perform their love songs that makes Volbeat so unique.

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!
