On a cold night in Nottingham, we visit a pretty big venue for acts of this genre and people arrived in their flocks to see this one. The Australian deathcore band Thy Art Is Murder were first in line to tackle the crowd. With frontman CJ stating early on, ‘For the next 30 minutes, you […]

The buzz around the large room was intense from the get go; something a little different to […]

HIM @ Rock City, Nottingham 15 December, 2017

Arriving at Rock City tonight I noticed an already growing crowd present for the opener Biters. Formed in 2009 , the US Glam Rockers are signed to Earache Records. Their first EP ‘Electric Blood’ (2015) and their debut album ‘The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be’ (2017) have peaked the interest of Alternative Press, […]

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds @ Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, 28th September,2017

There isn’t any support on this tour that means an early start time, which isn’t popular with all but, considering Nick Cave has almost Messiah like status for many, he is forgiven. Close to the time advertised, haunting music plays throughout the venue for a few minutes before the lights are dimmed. A roar from […]

The venue  itself, ‘The Level’ attached to Nottingham Trent University; impressed me with it’s sizeable room, impressive lighting and sound. I even found the security in this venue very friendly. The Five Hundred came […]

Parkway Drive + Heaven Shall Burn + Northlane + Carnifex @ Nottingham Rock City, 15th December 2014

Tonight Parkway Drive treated a sold out Rock City crowd to a show that surely demonstrates to all of the haters and critics that metalcore is far from dead. Their choice of guests for the evening was… interesting. Starting out as all good evenings should, with a healthy dose of Death Metal courtesy of Carnifex, […]

Lit + Army of Freshmen + Hey Vanity @ The Rescue Rooms, Nottingham, 16th November 2014

With Rescue Rooms being such an intimate venue with a capacity of only 450, it was never going to be the easiest place to be the opening act, particularly as it was quite evident that people were there to see Lit and were not overly interested in support acts. Hey Vanity didn’t even half a […]
