Supported event

Within Temptation: North American Tour 2014

USA, Denver, CO (Gothic Theater)
28 September 2014

Within Temptation
Staff pick
Pervy Perkin - Ink

In the grand scheme of things this album has got one strength and one weakness. At the core of it the reason is one and the same. This album is so packed with different and great ideas, it's really becoming ridiculous. However, this also accounts for the length of the album and the lack of consistent direction in development of said ideas and thus it appears to be all over the place. High marks for the début effort and future promise, though.

Listen to the full album over at Bandcamp.

Iron Reagan - Debut New Video 19.09

You might have heard of Iron Reagan by now. Fronted by Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste), the crossover/hardcore punk group just released their hilarious new video. The video was directed by Whitey McConnaughy and features cameos from members of Red Fang, Toxic Holocaust and Mudhoney. They chose the song "Miserable Failure" from their new album The Tyranny Of Will, released a few days ago via Relapse Records. Expect a "flash mosh" of epic proportions.

Progventure Part 9: Green Carnation - Another Night Under The Dam, Åseral, Norway, 31.07.2014 01.09

It seems that my Progventure prog searching trips are not only a convenient excuse to travel new places, or more often the only way of seeing bands I like I wouldn't otherwise get to see, but in some cases they are turning out to be events of a fairly unique kind. Another Night Under the Dam - the Green Carnation reunion show at the Åseral dam number 3 in Norway was unique in more ways than one. And it most definitely was special. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014 29.07

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

Maybe that you don't already know it yet but the band will release soon a live album and they chose to release this EP for the fans who cannot wait a lotů You'll be able to listen to only three songs, "Light The Universe", the really nice ballad with miss Candice Night plus the video clip of this track. A live version of the really catchy "If I Could Fly" recorded in March 2006 at Sao Paulo. This... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
