64737_10151508083528200_2010890939_n(If this was a review I’d start by saying…): Tickets There is in no shape to write a review about tonight. 6 hours on whiskey warmups haven’t left much of a vocabulary to describe the outstanding power of Warpath. 17 songs of chaos and destruction fuelled by hours if excessive drinking, moshing and head banging – it was a WARPARTY in every sense of the word.

The originals of these pics weren’t quite as insanely clear and professional as I’d hoped; that sort of quality demand the photographer being able to stand up right. So, myself and Instagram have made these as butcheristic, dark and brutal as humanly possible.

Posted in Gig Review, IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2012 by Tickets There

This is massively overdue but Tickets There would like to extend our congratulations to Dublin death metallers, Warpath, for securing the winning spot in the Irish leag of the 2012 Wacken Metal Battle. Competing against Exzeltic, Beltbuckle Overdrive (who both came joint second), Psykosis, Zealot Cult and Celtachor, Warpath stormed their way to victory and will crusade across the content to the world final @ W:O:A in August.

Winners aside, the competition really showcased the incredible talent that exists in this country’s metal scene. With Primordial and Darkest Era starting to hammer down the road to greatness, it seems there are many more bands waiting in the ranks for their chance to unleash hell, raise carnage and put some metal up your ass.

Congratulations to all who entered and best of luck to Warpath at Wacken this summer!

Wacken Metal Battle: Final This Saturday

Posted in Gig Review, IRISH NOISE!, Music with tags , , , , , , , on April 19, 2012 by Tickets There

The Irish final of the Wacken Metal Battle takes place this Saturday, April 21st at The Pint on Eden Quay. The six finalists from around the country will take the stage and battle for a place in the world final which takes place at the W.O.A. (Wacken Open Air) Festival in August.

The six bands that will compete to represent Ireland at this long running battle are Warpath, Exzeltic, Psykosis, Zealot Cult, Beltbuckle Overdrive and Celtachor. With a helthy mic of thrash, death and Full on mother f**king metal, this is guaranteed to be one hell of a night. Tickets There would like to say we’re not bias, but our money goes on the mighty Exzeltic!

Feel like seeing one of your local head bangers showing Metallica how it should be done? Then pop on down to the Pint on Saturday night and show the colours.

The top prize includes 1, a gig at Wacken Open Air in August (the final – duh), a yearlong recording contract with Nuclear Blast Records (Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, EXODUS, Hammerfall, Sepultura, Nile, Testament, VADER – frickin’ endless list of legends) and assorted endorsements from the festivals sponsors. Not too shabby eh?

Hellfire()Sounds Review: Zealot Cult

Posted in Hellfire()Sounds : REVIEWS, Music, MySpace Review, Special Features with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2012 by Tickets There


In fairness, this should be flagged more as a ‘traditional music’ review than a metal one. Like in the bay area of San Francisco, they don’t call Metallica ‘heavy metal’, they call them ‘heritage music’ and ‘traditional bay area folk’. Same can be said the Zealot Cult and Limerick. If Limerick was allowed revamp and update its traditional music, Tickets There would push for insane, gore oozing, gut punching death metal. The tracksuits would probably win out and you’d end up with the Rubberbandits, but what can ya do?  

Zealot Cult are on the bill for the Wacken Metal Battle Semi-Final II so we decided we’d give them a spin and all we can say is, ‘Warpath – watch yourselves’. We’ve been spending some quality time on their MySpace player for the past couple of days and while death metal may not be TT’s forte, we can’t help but enjoy the hell out of it.  Did the use of the word forte give it away?

‘Killing Spree’ kicks things off and ..yup, that’s what you’d imagine it sounds like. What you do is take two slices of hell, spread a little pain on there. Cut thick slices of punishment and drizzle it with doom. Make sense? If not, you just don’t get metal. ‘Knives of the Zealots’ (knife title)…..(sorry), is a little more up front. Have no idea what’s going on here, but someone’s pissed. Another few lashings of doom and you’re done.

Architects of Carnage’ (another bitching title) is faster, more aggressive and more violent than the other tunes. The kind of tune that makes you push the guys in front of you, no matter where you are and force them all into a pit. ‘Portraits in Blood’ is probably the radio single here. Much tamer and a lot more mainstream than the other tracks in the player. Fairly catchy chorus and a savage solo. Of course I’m joking, about everything but the solo! Alas, ‘Homicide’ brings us to an end. Another spree of rabies infected death metal over and nowhere to go. These guys are going to go far in the Wacken Metal Battle if they’re as good live as they are on record. Should make for an interesting final if they go through.

Check out their tunes @ MySpace. Apologies for references to Metallica in two consecutive posts, TT knows other bands but they just seemed to fit so back off.

Not too shabby eh?

On Saturday night, Crunch Metal promotions presents the first of two semi-finals in the Irish heat which take place at Dublin’s The Pint, and will see six native acts launch bloody war upon each other for a chance to claim the coveted prize. Beltbuckle Overdrive (Dublin), Clurichaun (Tipperary), Exzeltic (Dublin), Red Six (Belfast), Spittin’ Bones (Kildare) and Warpath (Dublin) are all in with a chance of reaching the finals which will be held again at The Pint on April 21st but only three will qualify on the night!

IRISH NOISE! Warpath (MySpace Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, MySpace Review with tags , , , , , , , on March 6, 2010 by Tickets There


We’ve been to all sorts of gigs over the years but we’d never been to a real death metal concert. That all changed on Thursday when we caught Polish metallers Vader in Whelan’s. We have a few Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel and Celtic Frost albums in the collection but we’d never had any real interest in the genre. Death Metal always struck us as a comical genre to be enjoyed with a grin. In all fairness, the gig didn’t change our opinions but out of all the shows we’ve gone to without knowing the band in advance, this will stick out.

On stage, Vader are an incredible force. The band deliver their songs with the same dull downed perfectionism you hear on the albums. You see bands all the time that deliver tight performances but Vader perform like an elite military unit. Each one perfectly in sync with each other, the music and the crowd.  There’s no slips, no flaws and the sher assaulting quality of the music just overpowers you and takes control.

Hard not to get sucked in by that!

So, with our opinions on Death Metal changing, we thought we’d check out one of that nights Irish support acts, Warpath. Unfortunately, Tickets There arrived fashionably (accidentally) late and missed all but Vader. Still though, a McKenna’s Guinness is hard thing to ignore.

In short, Warpath are pretty good. We still don’t see the point in writing extensively about the drums, guitars are vocals when it comes to death metal (hence the Vader intro), but we’ll happily admit that they sound good at what they do. The vocals are deep, grinding and believable, the guitars are like machines and who ever has their finger on the double bass trigger does a mighty fine job. Gorefare is currently standing out the most and adding to the strain in our neck.

If you like Death Metal, check out Warpath’s MySpace. If you don’t, go see a gig and you might be turned around.
