Rock On The Range 2011 – Preshow Party

Gonna break down the whole Rock On The Range 2011 experience into a series of posts rather than one mammoth blathering, with an eye towards the noteworthy (IMHO, of course) as well as the up & coming. Or in some cases – the “not so much”. The 5th anniversary ‘preshow’ bash was a free ticket […]

Rock On The Range 2011 is coming. . .

Gonna be a little quiet around these parts for the next few days, because yours truly will be attending all 3 days of Rock On The Range 2011! Yep – even going to the pre-show featuring Steel Panther tomorrow night (might have to wear my spiffy new Anal Cunt t-shirt, not sure). If I’m not […]

Concert Review: Cauldron/Holy Grail – The Summit – 4/6/11

Oldschool metal lived last Friday night at The Summit as Holy Grail & Cauldron shared the stage with Cleveland’s Black/Thrash metal blasphemers – Midnight. How many bands can possibly have the name Midnight, I’m wondering? Encyclopaedia Metallum cites only 4, but I’m betting there’s one in every major city in the U.S. Still, it’s not […]

Concert Review: AxCx – The Summit – 4/30/2011

Often considered one of the most offensive bands on the planet, last Friday I braved my first live performance of the notorious Anal Cunt (or AxCx for the politically correct crowd). If you’re familiar with their body of work, you know that this Grindcore/Punk act from Newton, Massachusetts have been upsetting nearly everyone since 1988, […]

Three Inches Of Blood/Skeletonwitch – Ravari Room – 4/22/2011

This marks the first time I’ve seen a truly heavy show at the Ravari Room here in Columbus, and I gotta say – I was skeptical. I mean, the stage can be hard to see depending on where you stand, and the place isn’t as large as the Alrosa or the Newport (which could be […]

Concert Review: Bobaflex

On April 20th, I decided to attend an unusual radio event sponsored by one of my favorite rock stations here in Columbus – 99.7 The Blitz. The station was hosting a ‘Town Hall’ at the LC Pavilion, providing listeners an opportunity to learn how the station was doing presently and most importantly, it provided a […]

Concert Review: Cold-Kopek-Oceans Divide 4-1-2011

I was treated to this line-up at the Alrosa Villa on April Fool’s Day, but if it was a joke – it wasn’t on me! Truly awesome time was had experiencing some excellently crafted rock n’ roll. First up after the local bands were the Alternative rockers Oceans Divide out of Spokane, WA. Very radio […]

Concert Review: Creatures From The Black Abyss Tour

Impressive lineup for this one, interestingly sponsored by both Decibel magazine and Fearnet. I like the potential behind Fearnet sponsoring tours – would be my kind of stuff, I assure you! Anyhow, opening act was Daniel Lioneye, who are notable for their guitarist/vocalist Linde also being a member of HIM and that their song ‘The […]

Concert Review: Dimmu Borgir – Newport Music Hall – 12/09/2010

Norway’s symphonic sons of Satan (that is, Dimmu Borgir) returned to America with the ‘Darkness Reborn Tour’ & we were lucky enough to get it here in Columbus – versus all the times I’ve had to drive to Cleveland to see this band. Or not see them, as once they canceled on the day of […]

Concert Review: Overkill – Newport Music Hall 11-17-2010

Last stop of what I’ve been jokingly referring to as the ‘Reverend Mortis Tour 2010’, was the Overkill headlined tour Killfest 2010. Gonna be brief for this one as the tour is over at this late date. Here’s my thoughts; Bonded By Blood – Old fashioned Thrash Metal like you heard 20 years ago, but […]
