This past weekend, I was
invited to attend August Burns Red 10 Years of Constellations Tour at Starland
Ballroom. They brought amazing support acts with them including Silverstein and
Silent Planet. The parking lot was full, and the line of fans was wrapped
around the building. Once inside the venue everyone ran straight to merch and
the ballroom to stake out their spot on the barricade.
I love me some
good synth music! With that you should know already a bit what you’re in for on
this release by Priest. What you may not know is that this electronica project
has Alpha, one of the former nameless ghouls from Ghost, behind it. ‘Obey’ is
the latest EP by the outfit, after a quite successful debut full-length in
I found the time to check out the Finnish ladies of Barbe-Q-Barbies. They’ve
been around for quite a while already and have been playing quite a few shows
over the past year(s). When I realized they were releasing their fourth
full-length ‘Borrowed Time’, I thought it to be the ideal moment to give these

Remo Drive were formed in
Bloomington Minnesota in 2013 by duo Erik Paulson and Stephen Paulson while
still in high school stating their inspiration as “Older kids who smoked weed

started their journey in 2007 and have been rocking their way around Europe and

aptly named SUPERMAN! What a super track it is…The track starts off with a
melodic intro and a great kick drum and bursts into a very distinctive
lyric…it’s very 80’s rock mixed with a very slight touch of 90’s rock. There’s a great part in the track where it
breaks into a short instrumental before the lead singer gives you a taste of
his outstanding vocal rage, as if that wasn’t enough, we’re then treated to an
incredible lead rift. This track is
definitely one for the car and an open road….

Irish pop vocal group Boyzone hit Tokyo on Tuesday night. This was their
first concert in Japan, and it would be the last. Unfortunately, they’ve already announced that

their ‘Thank You & Goodnight World Tour’ to say farewell directly to their Japanese
Young Scottish rockers Salt River Shakedown are set
to release ‘Road To The Sacred Island’ on 19 July 2019 Independently. The four-piece, although still in their early
20’s, have been pounding for a while being previously named Magic Trik. They have a classic vibe with a modern twist.
Having previously shared the bill with the guys in the past with previous bands
I played in, their line up remains the same and has potential. I take the Road
To The Sacred Island below.
