Live Review: Fish at Sub89, Reading

Fish is still an imposing man. He stands so high that he can reach the ceiling with his hands (of which, more in a moment). Yet he moves fluidly. Graceful. He slinks on stage like an eel. Synchronized, he swishes and swirls back and forth. Using all the stage-space available at the excellent concert venue at Sub89 in Reading. And, ...

Review: In This Moment – Black Widow

Black widow spiders are known for the females’ unique appearance and tendency to eat their mates. They are considered the most venomous spiders and their bite can be fatal to humans. In all cases the females are the most distinctive, with shiny black bodies and a red hourglass-shaped marking. ‘Black Widow’ is a very fitting tittle for this new album. If you ...

Hard Rock Hell 8 Review

Hard Rock Hell (HRH) feels like a very well kept secret, hidden by it’s location, hidden by the fact it always sells out, and by the fact that if you did choose to go to a festival, perhaps you didn’t think to go to one November. Whatever the reason, all these things are actually a positive. HRH promotes an atmosphere, far gone ...
