Posted in General Tickets There Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2014 by Tickets There

10403112_10152836504737435_3322269395949245669_nChristmas is upon us and Tickets There is imploring everyone to spread a little seasonal metal joy this year.

Never mind picking up crap in faceless stores for friends and loved ones – buy metal! Instead of spending more money than you’re happy to part with on some yoke you hope won’t be rejected outright, buy a Warpath t-shirt. Instead of fretting and running around shops trying to stay hydrated and alive in the queues – order the new Primordial album. Basically – buy metal, support your local scene this Christmas and spread metal joy.

Several local bands have stores and great stock for you to choose from. T-shirts, albums, everything a new metal fan could want. Works even better if you have mates into metal – spend a tenner on a savage gift and you’ve friends for life who can never say you didn’t get them something.

Here’s just a few of the web stores available If you want to add some, simply comment here or mail ticketsthere@hotmai.com. Don’t be afraid to spread the word – #shopLocal666

Nuclear Assault, Gama Bomb and more to play Dublin

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.

Psykosis lead Fibber MaGees Halloween Carnage

Posted in Gig Listing, Music with tags , , , , , , , on October 31, 2014 by Tickets There

1601433_683717905052856_7044808280993022342_nIt’s Halloween and you know what that means – serious metal mayhem all around the capital, perhaps the country but that’s none of our business here and time strapped and under-resourced Tickets There HQ. The most exciting event to come out for this year’s ghoulish festivities is a very special Club Carnage which is happening tonight and features the most metal line-up you could ever ask for.

Psykosis will lead the event, supported by Guttrench, Theories Divide, Bäkken and Negative Nero. This will be Psykosis first Dublin show since they performed at Bloodstock 2014 and possibly their last before the release of their debut album (details coming soon). On top of all that, you’ll get mad drink offers, there’s fancy dress, hot women, hairy men and a very special €300 cash prize for best costume!

Get down there and have a laugh. Happy Halloween!

Psykosis performing at M2TM Semi-Final A 2014

PSYKOSIS are the latest band to be added to this year’s Bloodstock line-up after they were crowned champions of the M2TM battle of the bands on Saturday night.

The lads went up against fiercely fierce competition and won out, much to the delight of yours truly. Unfortunately for Killface, AeSect, Dead Label!, Theories Divide and Alpheidae – the Psyko lads just couldn’t stop sexin’ the place up.

Tickets There would like to congratulate Grant, Jay, Shane and Tony the madman on the win and wish you all the best of luck at Bloodstock. F**king bring it!

Bloodstock M2TM Irish Final – Preview

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Gig Review, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2014 by Tickets There

10313485_311876778964689_6635778539738576005_nBloodstock-Festival-2014-Poster-With-Sophie-Stage-HeadlinersThe gloves are off, the bets are down and metal is coming to town. After several months, 10 heats, six second rounds and two semi finals – the battle is entering it’s final stages. Bloodstock M2TM Ireland is going to have a 2014 champion to send forth to the English lands, so they may lay waste to the world’s filth and be crowned legends for life. In short – it’s on!

Tomorrow night at Fibber MaGees, six of Ireland’s best and brightest underground bands will assault spectators, fans, friends and family in their hopes to play the Big B, alongside Megadeth, Down, Emperor and many more. Each of the bands has earned their right to go and now it falls on their followers and stage skills to push them through the final hurdle. We thought it might be fun to have a quick look at the six contenders and in absolutely no way show any bias Tickets There (*Cough PSYKOSIS) might have in the result.

IMG_8754AeSect: AeSect are, without a doubt, one of the best live bands in Ireland at the moment. They (some of them anyway) hail from close by my own homeland – the mighty…..mighty strange Longford and they have entertained me – none of you – many times with their solid, aggressive performances and heavier than sin tunes. You can’t flaw them, you can only love them. If you haven’t heard them you need to click THIS LINK now. Tis Friday after all, what else would you be doing other than learning about sexy sweet ass metal from Longford? (and Wicklow and Dublin).

Alpheidae: These guys, and I hate to say it, but these guys are not my cup of tea. They don’t seem to have anything to do with metal and instead come across like Coldplay meets Evanescence. I blame ten years of terrible pop indie and nu-metal for this latest attempt of the commercial skater world to water my beloved genre down. THEN AGAIN… they have a lot of fans, so I’m obviously in the minority which undermines my own opinion in the greater scheme of things and they’re very, very tight on stage. They’re not amateurs who can’t play – instead they’re extremely well rehearsed and have a lot going on. Time will tell on the staying power of this new form of metal but I’ll bet they gear up a lot more interest than I ever will. Look, I’ve already written more about them that I did AeSect! No doubt – a major contender for the top spot tomorrow.

525425_10151602106708200_118071200_nDead Label!: Another of the countries hottest bands and possibly one of the most interesting and successful of 2013. Can they repeat it in 2014? Hell yes they can! Anyone who saw their major live return with Gama Bomb a couple of months back couldn’t have been anything less than in awe of their new material. Heavy, crunchy… did I mention heavy? Sounding better than ever – well worth getting in for. Your life can only be poorer for missing them. Check out the video below- another band to get the taste buds going…metal taste buds for metal people (you can drop my Pulitzer in the post).

Killface: Now you’re talking. DUBLIN DEATH METAL at it’s best. Would you believe in all my years running this blog, I’ve only been lucky enough to catch these guys twice and both times they blew the roof of the place (the Pint has of course since reinstalled it’s roof, but mostly uninstalled it’s metal 😦 ). Killface are a cracking band with a lot of energy, good tunes and power to bring to the fold. I unfortunately don’t see them picking up the grand prize – but with Warpath’s success last year – at least we know death metal bands are major contenders for the title. I won’t mind eating my words on this one either way.

IMG_8777Psykosis: Ok, so why bother trying to lie? Pyskosis are Tickets There’s favourite metal band these days. They top an exceptionally long list and just bring it. They bring it so hard it’s difficult to believe they’re still underground. They have an album coming out this summer which makes me so excited I want to wet my pants and call my granny. Psykosis, Psykosis, Psykosis. They’ll play it loud and do us proud and I can guarantee my terrible writing is in no way reflective of how they play. Prove it you yell? well watch the video and check them our for yourselves. Soon you’ll be drowning in a sea of blood….sorry, what was the sea made from again? oh yeah…. BEER!

Theories Divide: A band I’ve heard, but never seen. I can’t speak for their live performances but I can tell their tracks are worth a spin. One of the those bands I’m still waiting to grab …so I’ve haven’t been grabbed yet and it’s no fault of theirs – all me. More listens will bring more love, it puts the lotion on it’s skin or else it gets the hose again.

So, there it is in a nutshell. Basically every band is brilliant and loved. They’re all competing and for the tiny, tiny, tiny price of €5 (€10 after 9pm) you could be there to witness each of on them at the top of their game. Doors open at 7,30 and Fibbers will have some tasty beverages waiting for you of course 🙂 Tickets There would like to wish ALL six bands the best of luck. May the mightiest metal monsters win!.
