GHOST, Ceremony And Devotion

GHOST – Ceremony And Devotion; a barrage of fan favourite after fan favourite

For Swedish occult rockers Ghost they end 2017 with a rather nice surprise for their fans in the form of Ceremony And Devotion. Being their first live album recorded in San Francisco during their North American Popestar Tour, it pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin with little complaint from us. Word of warning for those who are ...

The Winery Dogs – Dog Years

The Winery Dogs – Dog Years: Live in Santiago & Beyond in 2013 – 2016

The Winery Dogs, a band I knew nothing of around two years ago, but with some members I was all too familiar. Two legendary musicians and one that for me, was slightly lesser known, a drummer that has been in just about every band worth being in. Mike Portnoy, arguably one of the greatest bassists to ever live and that has ...

Review: H.E.A.T. – Live In London

From over the PA comes a movie voice-over quote so old it has barely escaped the silent era, but it’s entirely fitting for these youths: “The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.” Jona Tee’s keyboards ...
