Congratulations SLIGO ROVERS!

October 15, 2012

Tickets There would like to send our congratulations to the Sligo Rovers Airtricity League Champion squad of 2012. The first league win for Sligo in 35 years and one they very much deserved. They came third in 2010, second in 2011 and now they’ve made it to the top! The league was clinched in a […]

Review: Voivod – Live @ The Village (October 6th 2012)

October 10, 2012

Not being a massive Voivod fan (no disliking them, just haven’t sat down with them near enough), Tickets There was originally going to skip reviewing this gig. It’s not that we don’t like Voivod, but we didn’t feel we possess near enough knowledge of the band’s catalogue to write a review acceptable to their fans… then […]

Review: The Happy Mondays – Live @ The Olympia (May 15th 2012)

May 28, 2012

It’s my belief that history is a wheel. “Inconsistency is my very essence” -says the wheel- “Rise up on my spokes if you like, but don’t complain when you are cast back down into the depths. Good times pass away, but then so do the bad. Mutability is our tragedy, but it is also our […]

Review: Rammstein – Live @ The O2, Dublin (February 27th, 2012)

February 29, 2012

They came with fire, brimstone, explosions and blood; to lay waste to a sold out crowd in Ireland’s largest indoor arena. For their first ever Irish show, Rammstein came to conquer and that is exactly what they did. Not for a long time has a ‘gig’ generated so much excitement and hype amongst an audience. […]

October 19, 2011

Mastodon – The Hunter (Album Review)

September 29, 2011

Review by: Brian McCaul Hard rock heroes Mastodon return with their fifth album, ‘The Hunter’. Named after Brent Hind’s brother who was killed in a hunting accident, it is not the morbid affair you would think. The band have described the album as “Like a Really Super-Heavy Led Zeppelin” and will make you want to […]

Beastmen – EP2 (Review)

May 23, 2011

Ah hell yes! Beastmen are back with a new EP, a more spacious sound but! they ain’t forgetting the massive helpings of their guitar laden, riff filled instrumental metal that made us like them in the first place. We’re slightly late getting this review up but better late than never. The lads are hard at […]

IRISH NOISE! My Evil Ex (MySpace Review)

September 26, 2010

Breaking the current hair metal obsessions for a few minutes, Tickets There decided it was time to review the band that’s been keeping our Irish feet firmly rooted all week. Hailing from the rebel county, My Evil Ex are easily one of the best new bands we’ve found this year. We saw them at Temple […]

IRISH NOISE! The Paddy Usher Band (MySpace Review)

September 21, 2010

Tickets There are playing catch up today. With September being full of Guns N’ Roses, shows, a festival and a wedding, we haven’t had a whole pile of time for writing. We’re doing our best to flesh out the site a little but overwhelming tiredness, depression educing lack of funds and an eagerness to do […]

IRISH NOISE! – The Urges (MySpace Review)

July 4, 2010

Though The Urges may be more suited for a MySpace Review, we thought it was about time we did another Irish Noise feature instead because honestly, we prefer the art work and the Urges have been around for about seven years now so it’s our fault for not discovering them before today, not theirs. Like […]

MySpace Review – The Revellions

July 3, 2010

Not sure if this is our third or fourth attempt to get this bands review finished but no matter what computer we try, their MySpace page brings IE and Firefox to a near freeze. Very frustrating when you only have 30 minutes to do a review! There’s one saving grace though, the band sound wicked […]

MySpace Review – Five Will Die

April 8, 2010

Tickets There has a saying, ‘when in doubt, go to Cork’. Bands emerging from the People’s Republic seem to have a much greater ratio of talent to toss than any other county we’ve come across. Not to dump on the rest of Ireland or anything, we’ve just found Cork to be the most reliable for […]

MySpace Review – [r]evolution Of A Sun

March 4, 2010

Well, well, well. What have we here? Another very extreme, very heavy, very intrusively noisy band mixing hardcore punk and louder than lightening metal? We think we do J As usual, we’ve never seen them live or heard their album. Hailing from Cork (where most great Irish bands seem to come from these days), [r]evolution […]

I’ll Eat Your Face – Irritant (Album Review)

March 1, 2010

Better late than never, Tickets There finally got round to some record buying today and a spit EP by Dublin band, Hands Up Who Wants to Die and, more importantly, Cork metal heads – I’ll Eat Your Face has prompted us to download the latter’s debut album, Irritant. Not to give too much away, but […]
