LIVE VIDEOS: OVEROTH / EXZELTIC / PSYKOSIS

April 30, 2013

After conquering the world of blogging, Tickets There thinks its time for the big screen. That’s right, we’re building up to a trillion dollar budget, 7D – multi-layer affect full length feature that’ll make Avatar look like a penny flip book from the 1400’s. Before we embark on our Hollywood adventure, we’ve decided to post three […]

Review: Dead Aeon – Apotheosis (EP Review)

April 23, 2013

Monaghan blackened/death metal heads, Dead Aeon, currently own all rights to my headphones. For several days it’s been next to near impossible to turn off their debut EP, Apotheosis. Five tracks of blistering intensity, voiced through extreme metal. After seeing them play a storming set at this year’s Wacken Metal battle, TT knew we’d need a revisit […]

Hellfire()Sounds Review: Psykosis (‘Toxic Terror Storm’ Demo)

March 5, 2012

It’s Monday, it’s sunny and that means thrash metal is needed! Rather that rooting through the American bands for some tunage, why not try some local home-grown boys who are just as good. Psykosis are a Dublin born ‘n’ bred, God honest thrash band with killer riffs, no quarter lyrics and blistering solos. Oh yes, […]

Hellfire()Sounds Review: Zealot Cult

March 1, 2012

In fairness, this should be flagged more as a ‘traditional music’ review than a metal one. Like in the bay area of San Francisco, they don’t call Metallica ‘heavy metal’, they call them ‘heritage music’ and ‘traditional bay area folk’. Same can be said the Zealot Cult and Limerick. If Limerick was allowed revamp and […]

Hellfire()Sounds Review: Exzeltic (Ground Zero EP)

March 1, 2012

After seeing these guys on Saturday night at the Wacken Metal battle semi-finals, we’re confident there’s a future for thrash metal in Ireland. Taking their influence from Megadeth, ‘Kill Em All’ era Metallica (when they were actually thrash, like) and the Priest (Judas, not the other kind), the band play fast, heavy metal with riffs, […]

Review: Whitesnake – Live @ The Odyssey Arena, Belfast (May 16th, 2013)

May 20, 2013

Maiden, Metallica, Sabbath and now Whitesnake – for some reason Dublin is missing out on a lot of high quality metal and rock shows these last couple of years; with the bands choosing to play up north instead. In some ways it sucks, but if you’re from the north it’s probably a long overdue welcome. […]
