OFF! – Live at Gilman 2011

OFF! – Live at Gilman 2011

After a handful of EP releases, OFF!’s debut album (released in the summer of 2012) was the year’s best punk record. Possibly even the best punk record of the previous decade. The combined talents of ex-Black Flag/Circle Jerks frontman Keith Morris and Redd Kross man Steve McDonald was always likely to result in something fairly […]

NAPALM DEATH: Hellfest 2012

NAPALM DEATH: Hellfest 2012

When Napalm Death appeared on the scene in the late 80s, they were one of the most extreme bands ever. Their grindcore assault, delivering uber-short metal numbers with a hardcore punk aggression, made their debut album ‘Scum’ almost impenetrable. It wasn’t just the sheer intensity that made it somehow fascinating, but also the fact that […]

THE BLACK STOUT: Two live shows from Paris – July 2011/February 2012

In 2010, Parisian punks The Black Stout released their debut EP. The self-financed release was one of that year’s best DIY punk releases, really capturing the spirit of the band’s influences while mixing it with a hefty dose of talent. Their second release – the eight song vinyl ‘A Pint of Riot’ – branched out […]

Between June […]

DEF LEPPARD: Pro-shot footage of intimate club set and Q&A

Whether long or short, Def Leppard’s live sets are often spot on. Their last London show in 2011 was no exception, as armed only with a video screen, great songs and no gimmicks, the Leps had the near impossible task of following Motley Crue’s larger than life show, which came complete with pyros, a revolving […]

By the middle of 2012, Soundgarden fans had much to celebrate.

Although nearing the end of the previous year Chris Cornell had suggested that the new […]

As the centre piece for their 2012 festival shows, metal titans Metallica have chosen to play their multi-million selling 1991 self-titled release in it’s entirity.  The fact that ‘the black album’ is now twenty-one years old is enough to make many self-respecting rock fan feel the pangs of age, but the album itself has weathered […]
