Black metal will cast a dark spell over the capital this winter. With Behemoth already confirmed to play the Academy on Dec 11th, it appears the corpse paint may need to be purchased a little earlier than expected if you’re to catch 1349’s return to our fair country.

What dark pagan magic is this you ask? Only the mighty powers of DME and their knack for getting us destroyed at the end of every year so we don’t feel like our laziness from January – September was a total waste of time. I’m rambing, forgive me. Nice to be back announcing gigs.

Anyways, 1349 became near and dear to me after their incredible performance ah this year’s Hellfest. I had deep regrets about missing their last show in… was it the Pint? Anyways, won’t be missing this one. Get your ass down to The Voodoo Lounge, November 22nd and don’t make my mistake. Tickets on sale now priced €20. More details can be found at the Official Event page.

Slipknot / KoRn tickets on sale now

slipknotDid your sixteen year old self leap for delight when this show was announced last week? Nu-metal or not, there is ridiculous levels of excitement for this tour. The return of Slipknot and a chance to see KoRn back on an arena stage where they belong.

Slipknot’s history is Ireland has been far rarer than KoRn’s making this an extra special show for fans. Many, like myself, will remember the disappointment of their last minute cancelation of their first Irish show way back in 2000 or 2001 after a ****ing parents group or some s**** had them banned. They made it up though when they finally made their debut appearance supporting Metallica in 2004, going on to be every bit as incredible as reports had hailed them to be. They even managed to win over the naysayers while they were at it. One final gig occurred in 2005 and it’s been silent since.

Now with a new album out (TODAY) and a new line-up, the Knot are coming back. No matter how much you (talking to the cynical older crowd here) thought you’d moved on and shrugged off that haircut, you’ll probably wish just a little bit you already had your tickets., it’s not too late my friends, it’s not too late.

it will be if you wait much longer of course so go but them. There was supposed to be a competition on Tickets There but my own honesty has made sure that’s not going to happen. if you expect Tickets There to do it for you, you’ll be waiting a long time.

Tickets available for Slipknot and KoRn’s January 14th show at the 3Arena are on sale now priced €59.50 from Ticketmaster.ie and outlets nation wide.

10610714_10152347943147536_7810550726646348077_nYes, can you believe that we’re already looking forward to Hellfest 2015! Of course, after all last year’s Hellfest boasted the greatest heavy metal line up in history and next year’s event is going to be the tenth Hellfest which opens the mind to all sorts of possible line-up’s. While no bands have been announced, Hellfest has released tickets with a 35% discount THIS MORNING (go, go, go).

As mentioned, no bands have been announced but Tickets There has money on Motley Crue, Judas Priest and Marilyn Manson all appearing on the bill. Apparently AC/DC are out of the picture, but who knows? Until the official word comes through it’s anyone’s guess.

The countdown has begun!

10337722_10152356843893965_4909218453002605802_nFor those that have been living in a cave for the past few months, JUDAS PRIEST have a new album hitting our shelves tomorrow and to celebrate, the Priest are hosting exclusive listening parties around the UK and Ireland and Dublin’s turn is tonight! At 10:00pm, The Rock Bar At Bruxelles will play the first official public airing of it and there’ll be prizes, free merch and HMV are even coming down to sell the first physical copies of the record. Get excited, you have my permission.

Redeemer of Souls is the Priest’s first album since 2008’s Nostradamus and the first not feature founding guitarist, K.K. Downing. Fear not though, the Priest seem to have only gotten stronger over the past few years. The album is absolutely mind blowingly brilliant. It’ll compete with Sabbath’s 13 for classic metal release of the decade and put Priest back on top of everyone’s agenda. Anyway, here’s the official blurb. More details can be found on the official Facebook Event Page.
