VULTURE INDUSTRIES

Four Different Shades Of Norwegian Darkness – Dominanz, Madder Mortem, Helheim & Vulture Industries Lay Waste To Bergen

Last night was something quite special in that four rather unique bands convened in Bergen and laid siege to the cool and dimly lit venue that is Kvarteret in Bergen, Norway. While legendary viking metallers Helheim and the progressive outfit that is Matter Mortem have been around for what seems like ages, the hugely experimental Vulture Industries burst into the ...

A career-spanning performance from Good Charlotte at London’s Alexandra Palace

For the last date on their Generation RX European tour, Good Charlotte go big. At London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace, this is one of their biggest UK shows to date. No pressure there, eh? A solid support bill is in place for the evening, a welcoming bill of four distinctly different rock acts. In particular, Boston Manor are probably one ...

Creeper’s Southampton Show with Puppy, Energy & Milk Teeth

Just a day after releasing their first full-length feature, Eternity, In Your Arms, Creeper set off on a UK tour bringing pop-punk bands Puppy, Energy and Milk Teeth. RAMzine headed down to the sold out show at Southampton’s The 1865 last week to check them out. First to take the stage were Puppy. They kicked the night off early and ...

Live: Courtesans, Think Tank, Newcastle

July last year we covered Courtesans at a venue on the other side of Newcastle, their first gig in the city. They have returned playing a more central venue – with more fans and materials behind them. Leading up to the release of their EP ‘Better Safe Than Sober’ EP this tour is a a live taster of what’s to ...

Live: Electric Six, O2 Academy, Birmingham

When Blank Parody come on stage, we don’t know what to expect. Some members are looking relaxed in their jeans and tees but their frontman is dressed to impress in a sharp blazer. They belt out loud and proud alternative rock, providing a decent spectacle to the crowd. They don’t let those ‘opening band blues’ hold them back one bit, ...

Wednesday 13 and Evil Scarecrow at The Garage in London

I have never been to a show quite like this before. With only two bands playing and we all have to be kicked out before 10 O’clock as the venue turns into a nightclub after the gig. Not sounding like a wild night out, is it? And yet not only was this show sold out but the extra night they ...

Live! Orange Goblin, Sub 89, Reading

Orange Goblin are a new take on old school heavy metal bands, such as Motorhead, Mountain and Black Sabbath. The four Londoners formed in the mid-nineties and since then have toured the world with their classic, heavy-riffed metal with such veterans as Dio, Clutch and Alice Cooper. We were lucky enough to go see them perform on the opening night of ...

Live Review: Enter Shikari at Motion, Bristol

It’s rather admirable that Shikari have stuck to playing this show. Originally billed as a Download Festival ‘warm-up’ gig, the sudden illness of lead singer, Rou Reynolds, forced them to place the show on hold. As a one off show it would have been easy to have forgotten about the whole thing, but this doesn’t seem to be the Shikari ...

Live Review: Ginger Wildheart, Eastwood Park Theatre, Glasgow

Falling down a flight of stairs clutching a bottle of Jack Daniels and dreaming about a band that combines the riffs of Metallica with the melody of Cheap Trick is where we start Ginger Wildheart’s Songs and Words tour.  The mastermind behind some of the best alternative rock this country has ever produced, had just been sacked from The Quireboys ...

Live Review: William Control, The Globe, Newcastle

When did this whole scene happen? I’m not talking about the ‘goth’, or the ‘dark-wave’ scene, or even the ‘grave wave’ scene. The current scene of unsigned or non-mainstream rock bands that celebrate all things dark, yet with a sense of great fun? In Newcastle you will see the same faces at these gigs. Gigs by Fearless Vampire Killers, Ashestoangels, ...
