THERE are those who write off Power Metal. They do so at their peril. For all the sneers, all the wee digs, power metal keeps going, and power metal masters Dragonforce are not the 'Dragonfarce' the metal snobs dub them: they are an outfit that keeps on going, and keeps on selling shows and albums.

The elaborate

EXTREME music in all its forms is challenging to the performers and the audience alike - musically and lyrically the subjects are not for the faint-hearted, but the flip side of this can induce a manic devotion; and with that an intensity that sees both sides in the live experience amply rewarded.

Thus, when a packed Limelight1 in

I posted a recommendation for Faithsedge’s latest album “The Answer of Insanity” back in August, just before its release through Scarlet Records on 1st September.  This is the second release from the band that features Giancarlo Floridia on vocals, Fabrizio Grossi on bass, Alex De Rosso on guitar and Tony Morra on drums. Giancarlo was good enough to answer a few questions for us and tell us more about the band and the new album.

One of the first “NI Rocks recommends” that I posted back in September 2012 was for the debut album from Audio Porn entitled “Jezebel’s Kiss”. The follow up entitled “Midnight Confessions” was released through J/K records on 17th September.  The previous album contained a mix of heavier tracks and slower tunes, but the new album steps things up a gear with a heavier edge throughout. What hasn’t changed is a penchant for rather raunchy album covers and lyrics that are a bit less than politically correct! Sounds like a winning combination to me!

The band consists of Tave Wanning on vocals, Ludvig Turner and Alexander Hagman on guitars, Soufia Ma’Aoui on bass and Marcus Johansson on drums. Erik Martensson from W.E.T. has been heavily involved in the album from the outset.

REGULAR readers will know that earlier this year we dubbed it the "Summer of Metal" given the plethora of appearances in Norn Iron by international and national acts - a big debt of appreciation owed by fans to all the promoters is due.


But as temperatures reach unfeasibly high levels for mid-September the 'Summer of Metal' rolls

Music aficionados (and fans of the bands of course) will know Nick Oliveri as the bass player from Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age and Dwarves (to name a few). Even if the name Nick Oliveri isn’t instantly recognizable to you however, there’s a fairly good chance that you might recognise him from one of the Queens of the Stone Age videos from around 2002. Oliveri has kept himself rather busy since splitting from QOTSA in 2004 and has just released a solo album entitled “Leave Me Alone”. The album was released through Schnitzel Records on 15th September.

I’m no expert on the definition of rock genres and generally dislike the industry’s need to categorise music into a seemingly endless list of sub-genres. Kissin Dynamite from southern Germany still get referred to as a glam rock band, whatever that is taken to define these days. “Glam” rock is one of those labels or genres that can be hit or miss with me. Bad glam rock can be very, very bad!! Thankfully “Megalomania” the new album from Kissin Dynamite definitely doesn’t fall into that category! The “power metal” label that I’ve also seen applied to the band might be more appropriate! No matter how you want to label it though, “Megalomania”, which was released by AFM Records on 8th September is a great album, well worth checking out.

OKAY children, gather round the comfort of the fire, settle back and listen to a tale of way back; when denim and leather were the only fashion statement worth making, when bringing on the heartbreak was a source of joy and when we were running free to the sound of heavy metal.

As the winters of discontent and economic

CAST your mind back some time and you'll remember that the 'supergroup' that is Dead Daisies wowed audiences when they supported Black Star Riders in a Christmas show in Limelight1.

They proved that they were not just another band of geezers intent on lapping up the cash, but were a bunch of musos having a good time,

WHEN it comes to live entertainment, it is a tough gig. Entertainers are supposed to stand in front of strangers, making them smile, laugh, cry, applaud and generally go home happy.

Standing on a stage, with only an acoustic guitar and a mic makes the task even harder. No backing band, no fireworks or dancing girls...

But
