Atominated’s Return?

Posted in Music, News with tags , , on May 26, 2014 by Tickets There

10152423_768573106508985_7092702042875684902_nIt looks like Atominated have made a positive step towards their grand return. They announced last week that former Twisted Autocracy frontman, Darrel Tanfin has joined the band (presumably as singer and rhythm guitarist – TBC) and now they just need a new bass player.

If you play bass and you’re savage craic – give them a shout and send on a demo. If they tell you, ‘f**k off – we have a bass player. Where did you get this amateur hour information?’, you can blame sexy a$$ Tickets There – Ireland’s answer to the Hustler Heavy Metal Christmas Special.

Updates! – So as you know, for the last few months we have been in the gutter about whether AD is to continue and live on past the struggles we were faced with when replacing Emmet. During this process we have parted ways with Cormac Jordan on good terms (Rhythm Guitar) and we would like to welcome into the AD family, a talented player and singer, he was the frontman of Dublin thrash band Twisted Autocracy and has played with a number of musicians in his time in the scene. His name is Darrel Tanfin and you can hear him at the track below. With all of the line-up changes (and problems) we have gone through as a band, I can say for myself that this line-up is my most thought of and I am more confident than ever about it. Thank you to everyone who stood by us and gave us the reason to continue writing music and forwarding ourselves as a band.

Review: Twisted Autocracy – Reinstate the Hate (EP)

Posted in EP Review, Music with tags , , on May 1, 2014 by Tickets There

a2654034394_2We’ve been looking to this for about half a year and finally the time has come for Twisted Autocracy. Tickets There has an almost Axl Rose choreographed history with TA as we’ve managed to turn up late for all but one of the fourteen thousand times they’ve played nights we attended. However that one show, much like Snowblind last week, was enough. Not being major, major hardcore fans – there was a little awkwardness at first – but you can’t deny music of this quality and intensity.

Reinstate the Hate is the band’s debut EP and it’s five slices of savagely fast, obnoxious metal that pulls no punches. Could that have sounded any more cliché? Yes – the answer is yes it could. Seriously though – from the moment ‘A Worthless Place’ booms on the headphones it’s hard not to just listen to this EP over and over again. The E.P.’s title track, ‘Pretty Fucked Pretty Quick‘ and the excellent ‘Corporation Defecation’ are all presented with the same, fist pumping energy and give the listener the perfect introduction to their sound and the potential for future releases.

A great listen and highly recommended for all metal fans. Have a listen on the band’s official bandcamp page now.
