THEY have emerged as one of the hottest metal acts in Northern Ireland, combining groove, and Satan plus a mischievous sense of humour - they are Zlatanera.

In this interview we learn how they got their name, and how the song 'Idle Hand Sataniser' came about. It was recorded after the band had blasted out a great set in support of NOLA legends Corrosion of Conformity. (You can read the review

THIS weekend sees a clatter of good shows to tempt you away from your hearth and avoid the wall-to-wall election coverage.

We do hope that actually do vote (if you don't somebody else vote counts more) but once you've exercised your democratic rights you'll need a wee rest, so head up to the Eglantine to see Scimitar, The Crawling, and Shrouded - it's free event, but steady on before you get too ripped up.

That's because

LET'S face it the words folk and metal should not, in a sane universe, be used in the same dimension let alone in the same sentence. Folk - that's earnest men in aran sweaters with acoustic guitars and weird English accents. Metal - well that's us.

Add in a liberal dose of 'Finland' and nothing would have made sense of this to the progenitors of heavy metal and fans of metal in the 70s and 80s.

But, when those of that vintage stumble upon this alternate dimension

IT seems they like it in Belfast, because Corrosion of Conformityrolled up on Sunday May 1st for the second time in the city in less than a year. And, they delivered a set as if they were young pups rather than seasoned, tried and tested NOLA veterans.

In a lesson that could be learned by many a band the members of Corrosion of Conformity mingle with the audience before doors, sip pints and have their pictures taken. Simple courtesy to the fans and good manners.<br

rocketship92: Great show!
Alice15: My name is Becky Baxter and I am a 15 year old lead singer with a rock and blues band called Riff Diamond. We are so excited to be appearing at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast on 15th December 2015 and we were wondering if you could give us some publicity for our upcoming gig. All proceeds are in aid of The National Autistic Society. This is a subject close to my heart as my sister Hannah is diagnosed with Asphergers.
Hannah is a gifted and prolific writer and we, as a band, are honoured to give her a platform to express her views and her perspective on a society with which she can feel out of sync. Such songs as "Masquerade", " Count Me Out"and "Welcome to the End of Forever" encapsulate this.

These songs are among many of Riff Diamond's original material, the bulk of which capture the essence of classic rock and blues artists like Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and Led Zeppelin and combine them with an original, vibrant and contemporary creativity. Added to this, the band showcases the great guitar skills of Conal O' Donoghue, our 17 year old lead guitarist who made it through to the last 60 auditions out of 1000 entries to Sky Arts Guitar Star. Together with John Mc Nulty rocking it on drums and Shauna Mc Garrity acing it on bass, we are Riff Diamond, a new exciting band which would welcome all your support.
