Danko Jones/The Amorettes live at Whelan’s, Dublin September 18th 2015

Although he performs his music with a brilliantly controlled ferocity, at times his interaction with the crowd is just as compelling. When he addressed, as he called it “the big fucking elephant in the room“, meaning the empty balcony above, it drew a loud belt of laughter

Interview with guitarist \ vocalist – Danko Jones

With a UK tour in full swing, support coming from Ireland’s own ‘The Amorettes’, Danko Jones took time out before the Dublin show to speak to MGM reporter Brian Boyle to discuss all things DJ and why it’s been a while since we’ve seen them on this side of the pond;


Interview with Matt Marinelli (Guitars & Vocals) (Borealis)

The elements, let’s say with our new album Purgatory, it is a concept album and it’s just something interesting about that dark, not necessarily emo in that genre I guess but…I guess it’s hard to explain.

Pomegranate Tiger – Entities Review

Regenesis just made me sit back and smile. With just acoustic guitar to open the track that soon emerges into violin and bass, it was an incredible close to a wonderful album.

My Darkest Days – My Darkest Days

Although CHAD KROEGER is involved quite heavily here, MY DARKEST DAYS has musically not much to do with NICKELBACK and actually have somehow an own kinda sound. OK, there’s some similarities to THREE DAYS GRACE here and there, a little DISTURBED as well, sometimes HINDER comes to mind and a lot of 30 SECONDS TO MARS references are notable, but the melodic hooks and choruses are actually straight out of the 1980s New Wave ish Poprocksound…
