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!

Carnage Fest is a two day event that’ll celebrate the club’s third successful year in operation and the fact that it has become the premier club night for metal fans in the capital. For three year’s they’ve promoted local bands, DJ’s, performers and provided a regular, low price, high craic night for metal fans to meet each other. Despite low turnouts from time to time, cancelations on the bill and general lack of funds these days – Carnage has remained constant and always given punters a good solid night for their buck.

Tonight’s show will be headlined by the mighty Dichotomy with Vile Regression, Dead Aeon and Visions of Apophis providing support on the upstairs stage. Meanwhile industrial fans can head to the cellar for full on DJ sessions and general urban terror dealings. Tomorrow’s show will take place upstairs and will feature sets from Motorheaders, S.F.U., Grande Royale, Devolted.

Venue is Fibber MaGees (or Fibbers if you’re inclined) and admission will be €6 each night. Usual drink promos and deals will apply. More details are available on the links below.

Happy Birthday guys and congratulations on reach three years!
