REVIEW: Doyle + Generation Graveyard + The Dead XIII – The Underworld, London (06/02/17)

This was a show I had been looking forward to since it was announced. Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein finally touring the UK. I always wanted to see Misfits live but due to them breaking up before I was old enough, missed out. Worth the wait.

First up were openers The Dead XIII. Coming onstage with full make up on each member, I thought I was about to witness a black metal band but when they started playing opener “Frost Bite”, I found myself happily nodding along to a great mixture of electro/metal. Energetic onstage, they got the growing crowd going and shouting along (whether we knew the words or not). Personal favourite was the track “XIII”. Definitely worth checking out again. Their album “Catacombs” is available now.

Next, Generation Graveyard. Briefly battling technical issues, they came out strong. Their politically charged death punk is like a swift punch to the face compared to a lot of music out there. Really getting the crowd moving and singing along they put on a fantastic, energetic set. The intensity and energy they brought to the stage was eagerly reciprocated by an ever-growing crowd as they blasted through each song from the set, never slowing the aural assault. Fantastic set from a great bunch of guys. Their EP “Lonewolves” is available now.

20170206_212914 (2)Finally, the band we’d all been waiting for. From the opening howl of “Abominator” to the close of “Hope Hell Is Warm”, this band was on fire. A full hour set filled with tracks from their current album, interlaced with classic Misfits tracks. Doyle looked monstrous, stomping the stage in full beast mode and beating the hell of his signature guitar, not missing a beat. Match that with the extremely energetic and impressive vocals of AlexWolfman Story, you have an impressive combination.

A set that just couldn’t disappoint, they tore through each song with force and a quick intro in the form of the words “This is a love song, you can dance to it if you’re so inclined” from the Wolfman.

I was completely blown away by the performance and can’t wait till they come back. Personal favourites were “Valley Of Shadows” and “Drawing Down The Moon”. The Album “Abominator” is out now.

Pop punk legends Yellowcard have announced that they are to finish as a band later this year after a world tour and final album will be released. The band are set to release a new self-titled album as a parting gift to their fans. A North American tour will kick off on October 6th and will run until November 22nd, as the band prepare for their final European shows, which starts with a gig in Amsterdam on December 7th and running up until the last day of the tour in Birmingham on December 18th.

An official statement from the band read “When saying farewell, it is hard to know where to start, especially when there are so many reasons not to say it, but the time has come to share this news,”  the joint statement went on to explain what the end meant for the band and fans alike, “After countless discussions and months of thought, we have decided that it is time for Yellowcard to come to an end. This will be our last album and our final world tour.”

Yellowcard-ST_COVERThe new album can be pre-ordered at www.yellowcardrock.com and is set for release on September 30th. It will be a shame to the boys go out, but we are sure that the final shows will bring a great mix of the explosive live energy the band have maintained for years and the emotion that comes with a farewell. The bands heartfelt statement comes with a plea to fans to join them on this final experience asking “Please come and join us on our last trip around the globe. We hope to share this final record and tour with each and every one of you.”

REVIEW: PANIC STATE – THE COMEDY, LONDON (18/11/15)

As I approached the bright lights of London’s Leicester Square, I met up with Panic State drummer Daniel Tweddle. We made our way inside and got informed that one of the bands had pulled out due to it ‘not being a proper venue’ whatever that means! What this meant, however, is that Panic State would get a slightly longer set.

As with any female fronted band, there will always be comparisons with the likes of Evanescence, Paramore & Halestorm. I’m deliberately going to stay away from that!

 As they took to the stage they opened with System Kings followed up with Your Own Heaven which were both really catchy tracks and if they’re the backbone of the new album Armageddon (due for 2016 release) then they should have no problems whatsoever doing pretty well for themselves! Lead guitarist Scott Dunleavy pulls out a cracking solo for Your Own Heaven.

They then delve into the archives to their first album with Anarchy and Made of Fire which was the first song they ever wrote together as a band, both taken from their first album Pandemic.

 IMG_3031[1]

The next track was probably my favourite track of the night, the new, and very heavy Armageddon Begins, which is due for release on 11th December on XRP Radio. The song has a great mix with everyone on point. Some really cool bass licks from Tom Horton who ironically was sporting a rather apt T-Shirt commemorating all the people who have lost their lives.

Eight Days from the album Pandemic is the next song up and it’s a slower song which gives Daniel a bit of a break from his hard hitting thrashing drumming. It also gives us the chance to properly hear lead singer Dylan Epega’s voice, and it’s actually pretty damn good! Some really nice tones backed up by Tom, giving it a great mix. I would love to hear this song really stripped back with just singing and an acoustic guitar.

 The final song of their set is Shellshock the last song from their first album. Which starts off with a really slow and melodic build up and then just kicks in to a mental frenzy! The catchy guitar riff has everyone moving in unison. The crowd has definitely warmed to this band the more the night has gone on. The band certainly grew in stature.

All in all it was good 40 minutes of music and the song was a fitting one to end their set.

The crowd then asked for an encore, the band obliged and blasted through Ignition to end the show.

I can definitely see this band selling out bigger venues in the. It too distant future and one who should most definitely be on your ‘bands to hear’ list.

Putting all the technical hitches aside (which were no fault of the band) they sounded great and have a great future.

Well played Panic State, can’t wait for to be released next year!
