Posted in Gig Listing, News with tags , , , , , on November 27, 2014 by Tickets There

1973880_731919550210113_5840909587382321700_oI read this last night and my hands have just now stopped shaking enough for me to post it. DME have confirmed that Nuclear Assault are coming to Dublin in 2015 and (get ready thrash fans) they’re going to be supported by Gama Bomb, Psykosis and Animator Seriously!

All four of these bands will be playing together on one incredible night at the Voodoo Lounge on July 19th as part of Nuclear Assault’s Final Assault on Europe tour. No ticket details have been released yet but who the hell cares how much it costs? It’s happening and there’s no two ways about it. Not only Animator and Psykosis, not only Gama Bomb – but freakin’ Nuclear Assault as well! What are you even supposed to do with that?

Anyways, expect a messy Tickets There, a lot of beers, denim battle vests and savagery. If time allows, there may even be some tunes.

Graspop is coming out mighty strong this year. As one of Europe’s most scared festivals, the chances of a good line-up are always pretty decent and 2015 will be no different. They’ve managed to capture most of the mouth watering touring line-up’s this year.

KISS, Slipknot and Scorpions will headline the event with serious support coming from Judas Priest, Motorhead, Alice Cooper, Exodus, KoRn, Body Count, In Flames, Lamb of God, Cradle of Filth, Arch Enemy, Cannibal Corpse, PRIMORDIAL and many, many more. Full line-up details and ticket info available here.

One thing – Headliners are the best I’ve seen yet. Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Judas Priest and …ahem, ToTo will headline this four day extravaganza. That’s not all though.

Five Finger Death Punch, Backyard Babies, Opeth, Meshuggah, Hammerfall, D-A-D, Airbourne, Nuclear Assault, Exodus, H.E.A.T., The Quireboys, Exciter, Delan and again, lots more.

10435119_486880081450813_9020818907833401104_nThe Lycan sessions are coming back next month with two more exciting bands you need to catch. For those not in the know, The Lycan is Whelan’s newest night – dedicated to brining you some of the best live talent from around the county. Oh, and did we mention it’s all 100% HEAVY F**KING METAL? Hell yes!

The second sessions will feature the excellent Zhora and Alpheidae. Both bands will take the stage some time after midnight and play on till the wee small tiny hours that most of us hazily remember through a fog of shots and spirits. It’s free in if you get your name down on their Facebook wall now…or it might just be free in anyway. Whelan’s are merciful promoters, but do not cross them!

December 4th, Whelan’s – be there and support your local metal scene. Kisses x
