Ghost, Copenhell 2018

The Scandinavian dark lord Cardinal Copia, held service and closed down the main stage on Saturday at this years Copenhell, with a gem infested pope and a saxophone solo that killed. What else can you expect? You might be thinking what the hell is going on here?… but this is kinda what you can expect from a band like Ghost. Masked, unnamed “Ghouls” playing instruments in a theatrical setup, musically… Keep Reading

Danko Jones, Copenhell 2018

Pandæmonium stage, Friday 22. June: I had never heard of Canadian Danko Jones, until during Ozzy Osbourne’s show earlier that night, where a friend said, “Danko Jones are three guys playing red-hot rock’n’roll with a punker-fuck-you-attitude. No frills, just seductive energy. You HAVE to go see them!” And so I did, and my friend was right. He was SO right! The Canadian trio is a weird ensemble, with nothing but… Keep Reading

REVIEW: Isle of White Festival, 2018 – The Golden Anniversary!!

Unprecedented hot weather meant that Isle of Wight truly turned Golden in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. Without a Glastonbury this year #IOW50 was ‘the’ event to be at in 2018 and could seriously make Glasto returners think again next year. I love that moment in the build-up to the Isle of Wight festival when you get on the ferry and leave the mainland behind, it feels like you are… Keep Reading

Deftones, Copenhell 2018

Eight years has gone since Deftones ravaged the first ever Copenhell, now it was time for another round. Deftones are well known for an experimental approach to metal, well composed songs and high intensity shows. The expectations were sky high, and as expected Deftones delivered an overwhelming and breath taking performance leaving the crowd wanting more. The band played an intense full 90 minutes show with only a few song… Keep Reading

Tremonti, Copenhell 2018

Third Time’s a Charm – but hard to fit in >Hades stage, 3.00pm, Friday : Mark Tremonti may be known for many things, including Creed and Alter Bridge, but the guitarist proved that he can certainly hold his own when it comes to performing. Too bad it felt kinda….weird. Okay – this guy has more Copenhell visits in the bag than me, this year playing for the third time – in 2016… Keep Reading

Crossfaith, Copenhell 2018

The lovechild of genres and exploding busses! Pandæmonium stage, Friday 22. June: On their way from the Magazine Generali festival in Italy, it didn’t look good for the Japanese powerhouse. One of their tourbusses almost exploded, and they were stuck somewhere in Europe. As they finally reached the ferry from Germany to Denmark on their way to Copenhagen, drummer Tatsuya Amano was denied access into Denmark, and had to be… Keep Reading

Arch Enemy, Copenhell 2018

The Brutality That Came To Us Hades stage, Thursday 21. June: What…just…happened? The Swedish brutality exploded on the old B&W ship yard, as Alissa White-Gluz and her gutsy growling vocals ripped Copenhell a new one. As Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades” blasted through the speakers, the band came on stage, gripped their instruments, and just started playing. As in, igniting a nuclear weapon. A careful and short selection of tracks, from… Keep Reading

Isle Of White Festival 2018 Announce Cirque De La Quirk & Kashmir Cafe Line Ups

A generation has passed since the truce between two warring tribes; both Mechanicals and Nostalgias now coexist in peace and prosperity. Once a barren realm of battle without victor, now a vibrant hub of peace and creativity. Where dragon bones once lay, structures have risen from the ashes; light followed shadow, the arid lands now adorned with colour and the thrum of nature. Times have changed in this post apocalyptic… Keep Reading
