Yes it’s July again and that means three days and no nights of vinyl, vinyl, vinyl …and cd’s, games, dvd’s and collectables. This weekend the three day summer CD & Record Fair is coming to Filmbase in Temple Bar and will feature some of the best independent sellers from across Ireland and the UK. Admission is just E2 in and all styles of music are catered for. Enjoy!

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.

Happy Birthday CLUB CARNAGE – CARNAGE FEST Tonight & Tomorrow

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2014 by Tickets There

10472735_684423284957664_9086308779290459620_nThe site of countless drunken shenanigans, encounters, shots, bottles, buckie and lunacy – Club Carnage turns three today and they’re celebrating in style.

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!

Review: Snowblind & Axial Symmetry – Live @ Fibber MaGees (July 1st, 2014)

Axial Symmetry live @ Fibbers

Right, normally I wouldn’t be reviewing after shows because they involve a lot of drinking, spending quality time in smoking areas with people covered in sweat, booze and lord knows what else – plus the usual  general merriment and chaos. When you add the fact that this is a SLAYER after show – you can multiply all of the above by a hundred. Fortunately Tickets There is semi-sensible in our old age and we manage to hold things together quite well and show up when Axial Symmetry take the stage.

Matt O’ Brien of Axial Symmetry

Axial Symmetry are a new one for us, but you can instantly see they’re out to impress. Singer Gavin Doyle commands the stage in a manner that demonstrates an obvious nod to some well know road trained heroes. He works the crowd well, hides his own excitement at the number of people in attendance and gets on the with the business of rocking out. In fact., he’s so good it takes about two or three songs for people to start realizing there’s no-one behind the drum kit for tonight’s show. Yes – Axial Symmetry don’t currently have a drummer in place apparently, but they succeed in performing a great show (despite the bass player’s headphones things – lose them pal, you’re not in Linkin Park). They’re young, they’re not quite there yet – but they’re definitely going in the right direction. We’ll be keeping an eye out for them on future bills.

The mighty SNOWBLIND!

With the venue nicely warmed up and pints flowing – it’s time for the almighty mothers of funk, groove, stoner, heavy – all of the above and more METAL - Snowblind. If you’ve seen Snowblind, you’ve probably thought to yourself, “man – these guys are fucking insane! Why isn’t everyone in the world here to see them?”. Well Tickets There thinks the exact same thing every time we see them on stage. Despite having a bigger crowd than the last time we caught them at Carnage, they still play to a half empty room. This doesn’t phase the lads though as they plough through a savage set of covers and originals.  This is a band with extremely talented people, great songs and they have a shed loads of craic on stage. Go see them, go see them now!

By the end, memories of Slayer had almost become just that as Snowblind and Axial Symmetry nudged in and stole some of the thunder. Thanks to EHT for having us!
