Don't hate me, but giver yer love to Trucker!
Right folks - going to be off the radar and social media for a while as myself and two other staffers here at Belfastmetalheadsreunited head to Dublin...
Now don't hate me, but we're going to see and review Avenged Sevenfold and Five Finger Death Punch to assess if the haters are right about A7X. (Some tickets if you fancy a last minute
Limelight properly fucked up by triple terror of Zombified, Ceseless Blight and Fuckhammer
LET'S face it, when the headline act is forced to cancel because of their van breaking down in the nether regions of nowhere, and one act down a member then Saturday's Distortion Project had all the recipes for a disaster.
Instead there was a
Videos from Buckcherry / Hardcore Superstar / Venrez Gigs in Belfast and Dublin
We attended both the Belfast and Dublin dates on the recent co-headlining tour by Buckcherry and Hardcore Superstar, that was supported by Venrez. As usual I took a few videos during the gigs in Limelight 1 and The Academy.
Personally I thought the two gigs were fantastic with top quality performances by all three bands. As I’ve said many times now, I don’t write reviews nor generally tend to read them. Everyone has their own opinions and are entitled to them. I don’t need to read a review to know what I thought of a gig and I wouldn’t bother reading a review of a gig I wasn’t at. So I’ve never really seen the point of them. Obviously others do but we all have our opinions. The world would be a boring place otherwise.
If you like watching concert footage take a look, if you don’t then don’t bother.

Bucked out by Superstars sees Swedes rise to challenge on triple bill excellence
BUCKCHERRY are an enigma - they rose to wide scale prominence on the back of one misogynistic song - Crazy Bitch - and since then have occupied a relatively high pedestal within the hard rock pantheon.
Yet last night (Wednesday Novembe 27th) in Belfast's Limelight1 Josh Todd and his band were taught a lesson in attitude by Swedish
Jepson raising acoustic hell hits the mark
TOBY Jepson - the man behind Little Angels, voice of Gun for a time, and producer par excellence of The Answer's latest album New Horizon - has produced something of an acoustic masterpiece ahead of his winter solo tour, which sees him play The Diamond Rock Club on January 11th.
This six-track release is an absolute in-your-face
Has Doyle's horror schtick past it's (Misfits) sell-by date?
WHETHER it was the first incarnation or the second incarnation of The Misfits, they hold a special place in many a metalheads' heart, even for those who only wear the t-shirst because Metallica covered a song...
Americans are nuts - right? If not then where did '30 Seconds to Mars Day' come from...
THERE are times when every nation exhibits a propensity to bonkers behaviour; however in the good old US of A there are times when sanity is not in evidence.
In the case of Houston we have to question the sanity of the Mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, who in 2013 named March 18th this year as '30 Seconds to Mars Day' when the release of
Just be early on Wednesday for Venrez opening for Hardcore Superstar and Buckcherry
WHEN it comes to Wednesday night there is good cause to make sure you get down to the Limelight2 early on. That way you can make sure to get a pint in hand before Venrez opens up for Hardcore Superstars and Buckcherry.
The headliners should be enough to drag you down there in the first place, but relative unknowns in Ireland Venrez are
This Week!! Buckcherry, Hardcore Superstar and Venrez
A gig we’ve been waiting for with much anticipation is finally almost upon us. One of our favourite bands, Buckcherry play Limelight 1 in Belfast on Wednesday 27th November in a co-headline show with Swedish rockers Hardcore Superstar. Support comes from American band Venrez. Two days later we follow the bands down to Dublin to see them play in the Academy on Friday 29th November.
It seemed like a good time to repost links to our interview with Buckcherry lead singer Josh Todd from August http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/1285-ni-rocks-interview-with-josh-todd-from-buckcherry.html
and with Venrez lead singer Ven originally posted in October. http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/1337-ni-rocks-interview-with-venrez.html

Videos from DP13 - Rock The Hall
DP13 “Rock The Hall” in The Ulster Hall, Belfast on 15th November brought together six bands from the local rock and metal scene to cater for a range of tastes. The event was part of Belfast Music Week and also celebrated 13 years of the Distortion Project giving fans the chance to see local and international rock and metal bands in Belfast. I took a few videos of the last three bands performing.
