Sumac - Recording New Album 26.11

It appears as if the guys in Sumac are keeping themselves busy by recording a follow-up to their debut The Deal. The album is being recorded at The Unknown studio in Anacortes, Washington, with audio engineering by Kurt Ballou of Converge fame. If you are not familiar with Sumac, you should know that the band consists of Aaron Turner (ex-Isis), Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists) and Brian Cook (Russian Circles). We can probably expect more information about the album in a not so distant future. (by Netzach)   Read more ››

Moonspell - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 03.11.2015 23.11

This is a concert I've been waiting for a long time to happen. The last time Moonspell were here was a bit over nine years ago. That's a very, very long while for an active band and three albums have happened in the meantime. For various reasons it's also over six years since I last saw the band, so naturally the interest was piqued. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Progventure Parts 11&12: 2 x (Iamthemorning + Gazpacho), The Netherlands, 30-31.10.2015 16.11

I wanted to go to Oslo. Even if I had not made any actual travelling arrangements yet, I had my mind all made up on catching the last date of the Gazpacho tour with Iamthemorning supporting. With the date falling on Friday in mid-November, all seemed perfect and good to go - except what I really wanted was to see Iamthemorning play live and Oslo was the only date of the tour they were not present. Thus, a new plan had to be forged with The Netherlands coming to the rescue. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Joe Satriani - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 19.10.2015 28.10

For many, Joe Satriani is an idol to look up to, a teacher to learn from, and an example to follow. The hands of this guitar god are so nimble that you wouldn't believe it unless you saw him play. His influence in guitar music is unquestionable whether you like his music or not. You have to see him play at least once in your life. So, when this man is in town, you really should go out to a show. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Rose Tattoo - Blood Brothers (2007)

Four years after their last previous alum, the Australian rockers of Rose Tattoo are finally back with a new release. You probably already know that it wasn't so easy to release this one, especially when you know that Pete Well passed away last year at only 58 years old. But the guys wanted to do it, and I can tell you that Angry still want to write and sing Hard Rock so if you like the band and still listen to Hard Rock, you'll probably have a good surprise with this release.
