Happy Birthday CLUB CARNAGE – CARNAGE FEST Tonight & Tomorrow

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2014 by Tickets There

10472735_684423284957664_9086308779290459620_nThe site of countless drunken shenanigans, encounters, shots, bottles, buckie and lunacy – Club Carnage turns three today and they’re celebrating in style.

Carnage Fest is a two day event that’ll celebrate the club’s third successful year in operation and the fact that it has become the premier club night for metal fans in the capital. For three year’s they’ve promoted local bands, DJ’s, performers and provided a regular, low price, high craic night for metal fans to meet each other. Despite low turnouts from time to time, cancelations on the bill and general lack of funds these days – Carnage has remained constant and always given punters a good solid night for their buck.

Tonight’s show will be headlined by the mighty Dichotomy with Vile Regression, Dead Aeon and Visions of Apophis providing support on the upstairs stage. Meanwhile industrial fans can head to the cellar for full on DJ sessions and general urban terror dealings. Tomorrow’s show will take place upstairs and will feature sets from Motorheaders, S.F.U., Grande Royale, Devolted.

Venue is Fibber MaGees (or Fibbers if you’re inclined) and admission will be €6 each night. Usual drink promos and deals will apply. More details are available on the links below.

Happy Birthday guys and congratulations on reach three years!

1557624_10153817209535171_989842710_nThe most exciting thing about this time of year is the anticipation of the forthcoming summer nights of metal, booze and good people.

Tickets There will never live down having to miss last year’s amazing line-up, but the good folks at Beyond Decay Promotions have a very tasty list of bands to make this year’s event just as good. Oh, and did we mention this year’s it’s TWO DAYS OF DECAY? That’s right!

Red Enemy Play Fibber MaGees This Friday

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

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?

Vile Regression Announce Fibbers Headline Show

600445_606208712737780_383964853_nVile Regression return with a new line-up and new material this August in what is set to be a pretty intense night of metal loving mania. After losing both their singer (Danny Keogh) and guitarist (Keith Carroll) earlier this year, the band are looking to put themselves back on the map with this show, and they’re bringing help.

Supporting on the night will be Dichotomy, AeSect, Visions Of Apophis plus one more band TBC. Admission is only €5 and it takes place on August 3rd (a Saturday so game on!). Vile Regression will be playing material from their debut EP (The Patter Evolves) plus new tunes from a forthcoming release (ohh). For more details, check out the band’s Facebook Event Page. If I have to write that one more time I’ll go insane.

Review: WARPATH / Dead Label / Psykosis / Vile Regression / Only Fumes & Corpses + More @ Fibber MaGees (April 13th 2013)

Posted in Gig Review, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2013 by Tickets There

549127_10151602107258200_84724036_nAny night spent at the WARPARTY is always going to deliver chaos, drinks and a rake of great tunes from one of Ireland’s leading metal bands. Tonight though, the mighty Warpath are getting support from sixteen other Irish groups, all playing varying styles of metal. Everything from Thrash, Death metal, hardcore, punk and Groove is catered for tonight and the drinks are flowing! Almost eight hours of metal, played out over two stages for the amazingly cheap price of €5. Fibbers, are you ready?

Things are in full swing when TT arrives. Clurichan are courting the upstairs crowd and sounding much stronger than this time last year when I last saw them. Their bassist (Tommy Buckley) still looks like a member of the Stone Roses, but no harm seeing one person stand out. After drinks are reigned in, it’s time to leg it downstairs and catch the end of By Conquest or Contest. These guys come from Belfast and TT is interested in seeing how they progress over the next couple of years. For now the lads sound good, play well and keep the crowd happy. Next time i hope to say a lot more about them, but right now it’s time for Psykosis!

532054_10151602106923200_959045676_nPsykosis were a late addition to tonight’s line-up, but the lack of notice doesn’t phase the lads. Even repeated sound issues, a missing microphone and lack of backing vocals doesn’t stop them shredding their way through an abbreviated set packed with crowd favourites. ‘Toxic Fugitive’ gets the mosh pit off to an early start while closers, ‘Terror At 3am’ and ‘Driller Killer’ send bodies, drinks and any thoughts of paced drinking out the window. Excellent performance as always; capped by the promise that they’ll be back to play their own headlining show soon.

555768_10151602106738200_1794130029_nThe next few hours are filled with wandering between stages, great music, the bar and Fibber’s overly appealing catacombs and smoking area. Upstairs Aesect are thundering through an impressive set. Having never seen them live before, their show is an attention grabber. They have a great sound and are definitely worth a second, third look. After that we get treated to some hardcore courtesy of Galway’s finest, Only Fumes & Corpses. TT first discovered these lads back in the MySpace Review days and after some initial hesitations, we grew fond. OFAC put on a strong show, blaring out positivity, killer riffs and energy by the bucket load. At this stage though, drink is needed.

548878_10151602107223200_1428710560_nWith some lineup changes, the order of things starts to misalign and instead of Spitting Bones, TT stumbles upon Murdock, a noisy punk hardcore three piece from Offaly. Unfortunately these guys just don’t do it for TT, but their show is undeniably full on and becomes more difficult to walk away from as it goes on. Both guitarist (Aidan Cunningham) and bassist (Michael Keyes) spend copious amounts if time playing from the crowd, wrecking mic stands and generally keeping things interesting. The music may not be our thing, but the show is fun.

525425_10151602106708200_118071200_nBack upstairs Vile Regression punish their fans with a blistering show. These boys have been around long enough to perfect their stuff and tonight there’s no doubt their fanbase will increase. Next up is Dead Label and they’re just what’s needed to keep things going more than six hours into this show. The floor packs up as they take stage and lead us closer to tonight’s headliners. Dead Label pack their set with tracks from their debut album, Sense of Slaughter which they released earlier this year. New single, ‘Are You Ready to Kill?‘ Adds an extra boost of energy towards to end of their set before things finish off with just one band left to go.

It’s been said before and it’ll be said again; Warpath are a juggernaut on this country’s metal scene. It’s only been a little under two months since TT last caught them onstage and that’s far too long to go without. After recently performing in Norway at the Inferno Metal festival, Darren, Dario, Karl, Eoin and Joe are back and ready to raise hell, fists and pints in their mission to blow all the other bands away and end the night with a vicious assault on the ears. With the downstairs stage now closed, it’s time to party!

541462_10151602107123200_1768076710_nMunting Season’ opens a set evenly packed with crowd favourites from their two studio albums (2007’s Gorefare and 2010’s Malevolent Reprisal), as well as a couple of new tracks to whet our appetites as we wait for album number three. ‘The Red Mist’ and ‘Extreme Rendition’ continue to punish the swelling crowd and the fatigue from those first seven hours seems to wear off. As the heat rises on and off stage, the band treat us to ‘Brutal Paralysis’ before performing a new track entitled, ‘Shackled to the Chains of Command’. Two more trips to Malevolent Reprisal follow before 2012’s ‘preview song’, ‘Infectors’ gets an airing. Judging by these tunes, there is nothing about Warpath’s material that shows any hint of slowing down…as if anyone expected it to.

485185_10151602107393200_1930162149_nTaking a break to down some luscious Buckfast, Darren remarks on the appearance of the band’s old bass player up the front and the heat of the venue, before kindly instructing us to form the biggest pit of the night and tear the place apart! Of course we all oblige as the band belt into ‘Skinned and Salted’, ‘Point Blank Execution’ and ‘Gorefare’ which bring us closer to the end of the night, extreme alcohol poisoning and chronic dehydration…but they’re not done yet. Darren reflects on the passing of Hate bassist, Slawek “Mortifer” Archangielskij (R.I.P.) last week and dedicates a cover of Deicide’sWhen Satan Rules His World’, which sees another pit explode in front of the stage and Warpath bassist, Eoin Dunne, get in on the action (losing a t-shirt in the process). The band get the go a-head for one last tune and bring the house down with ‘Demonic Possession’, wrapping up more than eight hours of incredible music from some of the best groups you could spend a night listening to. Excellent, excellent show that would be hard to beat, even form the most accomplished bands in the industry.

..and apologies to Eoin, I owe you a t-shirt 🙂
