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.

Live Review: Sylosis @ Sub89, Reading

So before I get into Sylosis’s homecoming performance in support of their new album Monolith, I feel I need to talk about Chimp Spanner.  By their own description they are “Retro Futuristic Djazz Metal”, which just screams of desperation to be different mixed with pseudo intellectual wordplay… also known as how I write most of my articles and blogs.  Part ...
