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 ››

Le Grand Guignol - The Great Maddening (2007)

The Grand Guignol was a theatre in Paris which specialized in horrific, mad and gory plays, and had the most of its success between the two world wars. But, what all this has to do with metal? Just think Arcturus or Unexpect (for the craziness) for a start... What, you've never listened to them? Come on! Anyway, next you add a baroque feel and neo-classical orchestrations. OK then. Think of decadent clubs in Victorian times. Think about drinking your tea in the moonlight while a jester pokes... (by Darkside Momo)   Read more ››
