1005240_10201384708567137_946280632_nRed Enemy seem to be a little bored of hanging around for their debut album these days. In order to combat it, they’ve put together one very tasty line-up in Fibber MaGee’s this Friday. Aside from themselves, their show will feature Two Tales of Woe (I thought they split up years ago?), Vile Regression, Hollow Truth and Leatspiders. That’s this Friday, upstairs in Fibbers. The price? Well Red Enemy want to see bodies packed in for a good time so they’re going with a ‘pay what you feel’ policy. So thrown in a couple of euro or a tenner, your choice.

Remember, bands and promoters who put on these free shows generally do it at a loss. If you want to see local talent going up the ranks then don’t be a cheap skate. For five bands throw in a tenner sher. it’s worth it and you get a full night of entertainment and free drinks. What more could you ask for?

That’s right folks, Blackie Lawless and the boys are hitting Dublin tomorrow night for the second time in less than a year. The boys are still touring their 2009 album Babylon but there’s plenty of older hits in there like On Your Knees, L.O.V.E. Machine, Chainsaw Charlie and many more to keep all fans happy.

Gig’s happening in the Academy and if the crowd at Exodus last week is anything to go by, then recession or no recession: this show will be packed.

Dublin Metal Events presents W.A.S.P. tomorrow night in The Academy, Middle Abbey Street Dublin tomorrow night with tickets priced at €23.50. Support from Shadowside.

IRISH NOISE! – Two Tales of Woe (MySpace Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, MySpace Review with tags , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2010 by Tickets There


This series isn’t in danger of becoming metal obsessed….because there is no danger with Metal. After a frustrating hour of listening to Judas Priest’s British Steel and not being able to review it…again, Tickets There decided that more metal was needed. As we’re slowly but surely learning, Ireland has a good share of decent metal so why not check it out?

Two Tales of Woe are one of those bands you hear mentioned alot, especially around Fibber Magee’s and we decided it was time to follow the stench of hype and see why ople are saying they’re so special. We’re on the second run through at the moment and it’s beginning to break our hardened outer shell. If you’ve ever heard and liked Crowbar, then these guys will appeal. Plunging doom metal mixed with occasional outbursts of shredding guitars, booming riffs and slow but powerful drums. First song, Religion? easily pulls of the job of convincing the listener that these guys are genuine.  Some bands who play this style too often fall into the trap of letting the songs drag on for far too long but these guys handle it well.

Serenade of Silence is a much faster, full on wee belter (love that expression). The guitars are faster during the intervals, the riff has more of a classic seventies swagger to it rather than the standard doom metal drool and the singer’s voice stands out way more than it did on the first song. A definite improvement and welcome change. Also, the power of the main riffs becomes even more apparent one the lead guitar bursts into a shredding solo half way though.

City of Doom’s wah-wah / crunchy bass opening is appealing. Nothing nicer in metal than the sound good heavy bass dominating the sound-scape©®™. The song is a mix of very calm, almost grunge like rock and classic doom a hoi hoi metal. After the pace picks up, the guitars begin to stand out properly and the lead ventures of into a spiraling tangent of riffage. Not as full on as Serenade of Silence but just as convincing as Religion?.  

Things finish with smack in the teeth styling’s of A Place In Time. There’s swagger, there’s classic rock rffage, there’s some speed, aggression. There’s militant precession in the drumming and a general mix of all the last songs strong points. Half way in the song descends into a chaotic pit of despair. After screams, slow riffs and an almost collapse of the structure, the song bellows back into action with some Lizzy like gusto and the guitars once again take the reins. Only bad thing I’ll say about this song is it ends too abruptly but perhaps (and hopefully), it’s different on the album/e.p.

Tickets There likes them. Believe the hype and if you’re a fan of Eye’s Closed and the like, check these guys out.
