LIVE: Camden Rocks Festival 2019

Camden Town; arguably the geographical epicentre of the British music scene. There’s nowhere quite like it. As soon as you walk out of the dusty tube station and into the equally dusty streets, it’s like stepping into an alternative dimension compared to the rest of London. That, however, is

Buckcherry – ‘Warpaint’

LIVE: Skindred / CKY / Danko Jones @ LCR, Norwich

It’s almost slipped under the radar, the fact that the Welsh ragga-metal superheroes Skindred have been on the scene for almost 20 years now. Not a band to ever pat themselves on the back and shout about these things, it should still be said that throughout these two decades,

Machine Head – ‘Catharsis’

If you’ve toured the world countless times, sold over a million records and near enough reached the pinnacle of the metal world, it’s fair to start taking some risks. American heavy metal titans Machine Head have done exactly that with their latest album ‘Catharsis’. At a point in their
