Venue Change: Deathcrusher 2015 ( Carcass, Obituary, Napalm Death, Voivod & Herod) moves to Vicar Street

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2015 by Tickets There

11949424_866958103372923_6726998859918511235_nDue to unexpected circumstances, the Deathcrusher 2015 show (featuring Carcass, Obituary, Napalm Death, Voivod & Herod) will now move from The Olympia Theatre to Vicar Street. Tickets were temporarily off sale while the move was being confirmed but are back on sale now.

Original tickets are valid for the new show. Seating will be un-reserved but additional seats have been booked for current ticketholders to ensure there’s more than enough space for groups going together to find blocks for themselves).

To be fair, Vicar street will be an ever better venue for this show. Bigger bar, bigger (or wider) standing area in front of the stage and savage sound. Can’t wait!

Review: Behemoth – Live @ The Academy (Dec 11th, 2014)

Posted in Gig Review, Music with tags , , , , , , , , on December 17, 2014 by Tickets There

IMG_0781A cancelled gig is always a bummer which can leave a bad taste in the mouth for years to come. That’s why Behemoth fans in Ireland must tip their hats to all the folks at DME and Behemoth themselves for saving the latter’s long awaited return to Irish shores this week. Awful weather conditions meant ferry cancelations this morning which left Decapitated, Grand Magus and Winterfylleth unable to reach Dublin for tonight’s show. Fortunately, with the help of a little luck and fiscal support – DME were able to get Behemoth to Dublin and fill in the support bill with locals Malthusian and Aeternum Vale. A Christmas miracle, you might say? (smug laugh).

IMG_0768The reduction in support didn’t seem to stop anyone coming tonight. The Academy is rammed from wall to wall and right from the start Behemoth ensure no-one, no matter who they originally came to see, is walking out of this venue tonight disappointed. Right from the start they have our bones trembling from their unrelenting force and stripped back, but no less imposing theatrics. There are bands out there who understand the nature of what live shows should be and go above and beyond to put on the most impressive performance and tonight that’s exactly what the Academy is treated to.

Of course, Behemoth don’t just rely on theatrics to get us going as they deliver an incredible set built from their latest album, The Satanist, as well as classics from their extensive back catalogue. ‘Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel’ opens the show and even spurs the crowd to sing it back, a rare feat for a band playing a song from a new album after twenty years on the road. ‘Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer’ swiftly follows and speeds up the pace as they hammer out incredible songs including ‘Conquer All’, ‘The Satanist’, ‘Christians to the Lions’ and many more before ‘Chant for Eschaton 2000′ closes their main set.

IMG_0774After an exhaustive set, Behemoth dim the lights and return in full black metal attire to deliver one final brooding song – the colossal closing number from The Satanist, ‘O Father O Satan O Sun’. An epic performance and easily one of our highlights of 2014. Hopefully it won’t be another ten years before we see them back in the emerald isle.

DEATH DTA announce Dublin return

Last year we were in shock when Death announced they’d reformed and were coming over to Europe for a tour. Of course, no Death line-up is every going to be fully complete with the presence of a certain Mr. Schuldiner, but who worries about these things? All those Death songs were sitting dormant for long enough and needed to be aired out. So, last November they came to the Academy as Death DTA (Death to All) and put on an incredible show. No Chuck, but remaining members from the Human era with Max Phelps on vocals were spectacular. Their dedication to Death’s legacy and performance would have been more than enough to make Chuck proud – saying that as a person that never knew the man, but he would have been a right fussy fuss pot not to have enjoyed the show. Now count your lucky stars if you missed it because they’re coming back!

DEATH DTA are returning to The Academy on March 3rd to celebrate Chuck and the twentieth anniversary of the Symbolic album. The night promises to be an incredible tribute to one of metal’s pioneers and the genre/music he created with stealer musicians, savage tunes and pints a plenty. Tickets are on sale now priced €27.50 from all Ticketmaster outlets and online of course. Follow the official event page for all the scoop.

  • DME Presents: Death DTA
  • Support: Massacre, Abysmal Dawn, Loudblast
  • Date: March 3rd, 2015
  • Doors: 18:00 (18+ show)

1349 Announced Dublin show

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.

On top of the stellar line-up they’ve already put in place for the end of the year (including Morbid Angel, At The Gates, Destruction, Behemoth, Kreator and many more), they’ve now gone and announced the excellent DYING FETUS are coming…and they’re not alone.

Dying Fetus will headline Dublin’s Voodoo Lounge on November 20th and supporting them will be (drum roll) GOATWHORE, MALEVOLENCE and FALLUJAH. All on one stage in one night. This is going to be an absolutely epic show!

Tickets go on sale this Monday, July 14th at 10:00am priced €25. This is expected to be a quick seller so don’t hang round. More details can be found at the official Facebook event page.

DME To Announce Announcement about an up and coming Announcement

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music with tags , , , , , , , on May 6, 2014 by Tickets There

DME

Exciting news for Dublin metal fans as our main supplier of non-Point Depot filling mania have some exciting news to announce. Unfortunately though, fans will have to wait days to find out what the news is as DME are only in a position to hint that they will announce an announcement over the coming week.

Inpatient fans flooded the DME Facebook page this morning and inundated head honcho, Fergal ‘H’ with names, hoping desperately to receive a confirmation. Using a sophisticated formula, assisted with lashings of logic, history, hope and pant wetting excitement – fans proposed names, tours, possibilities, theories, counter-theories, arguments and naked hostility in the hopes and forcing DME into a position where it no longer makes sense to keep things secret. Unfortunately the responses were giving away no clues, but that didn’t stop the guessing.

It’s got to be Cannibal Corpse, Revocation and Aeon”, proclaims Stephen from Ballybrack. “They’re playing Europe in October, November and December and they’ve days off before the tour, after Helsinki, Gothenburg, Madrid, Lilli, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Nova Gorica and Uden. Plus six of those dates fall on a full moon which is 85.72% of the free days which corresponds to the number of full moons on free days on two of the past three times they’ve played here. It’s fucking obviously got to be them!”.

DME were not immediately available for comment on the matter, but Paul from Raheny offered a different opinion.

2014-evile-724x1024Cannibal Corpse me bollocks”, he writes. “Everyone knows they never play shows in Ireland that close to Cambodia’s Coronation Day when the year is dividable by two. It’s more than likely the Evile show is just being pushed out another twenty four months and reduced down to €0.36 entrance”.

With days to wait, the comments section on DME’s wall is likely to get more and more vicious as impatience, hormonal angst and metal hostility fuse together in a possible rampage of internet troll-ism and terror. Facebook admins are advising patient followers to temporarily disable alerts for new messages until the full announcement has been revealed.

Sad news for fans as DME have announced Martin Walkyier’s Dublin show, which was due to take place on the 21st of this month, has been cancelled. Please find the statement below,

Due to a complete lack of organisation from the tour ‘organisers’, the Viking Funeral / Skyclad show on February 21st has now been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience caused but this is 100% out of DME’s control. We did everything we could to retain the show including accepting their postponement last year but they have now fully cancelled due to their failure to properly organise logistics around coming to Ireland.

DEATH DTA Announce Dublin date!!!

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2013 by Tickets There

1174930_522122574523146_1925663179_nHold onto your excited caps, legendary death metallers and widely renowned inventors of the genre, DEATH, have announced a European tour and Dublin is bang smack in the middle!

The band, thrilled with the success of their recent North American DTA tour, have decided to come and visit Europe and give fans the DEATH experience they’ve craved for so long. This show will feature most of the HUMAN line-up era and they’ll mostly be playing tracks from that album, as well as other DEATH classics.

This all takes place November 27th @ The Academy. Tickets on sale next Friday, Aug 30th for €27.50

Thank you very much D.M.E. This is a very special one!

DEATH – the legend lives on!!!

In 1998, “The sound of perseverance” – the very last studio album of progressive death metal icons DEATH from Florida – saw the light of day, and in 2001 their charismatic band leader, guitar god and sound pioneer Chuck Schuldiner tragically passed away. Many years later, the towering monolith of Chuck`s and DEATH`s testimony hasn`t even faintly started to crumble, and cult albums such as “Leprosy” (1988) or “Symbolic” (1995) remain untouchable!

Whilst older generations have their (live) memories to treasure, there`s a big bunch of younger death metal freaks who could get in touch with DEATH only via DVD or Youtube – and it`s about time we changed this! Earlier this year, the “DTA” tribute tour excited thousands of American fans, and in November 2013 this awesome trek will finally make it to Europe…

The DEATH line up consists of “Human” legends Sean Reinert (drums), Paul Masvidal (guitars) and Steve DiGiorgio (bass). Max Phelps – some of you will have seen him performing live with CYNIC – will step in Chuck`s footsteps. This amazing tribute line up will perform songs from every DEATH era!

NAPALM DEATH Added to Children of Bodom Show

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2013 by Tickets There

1093864_512709502131120_1258127318_oDME – obviously totally pi$$sed off with our original short post about Children of Bodom’s October show have gone and done something very, very special – Cleary to prompt a more meaty post from yours truly. Why else would they do it? To appease the great unwashed? I think now.

English legends and metal veteran alumni, Napalm Death, have been added as very special guests for the COB show on October 10th. Anyone that read the TT Report on this year’s HELLFEST will know we only really took note of ND a few months back and a chance to see them, again so soon is very, very welcome.

Also added to the bill are Insomnium and Medeia. All happens in Vicar St. on October 10th.

There DME, there you go. Are you happy now? Is that enough to finally end this? I can’t keep living like this and I can’t be expected to write big long drawn out posts that have little or nothing to do with music. You can’t expect anymore!

(Napalm Death – HURGH!)
