Wednesday 13 + Evil Scarecrow
@ The Garage, London
30th October 2015
Review by Soozi Chameleone

This Halloween weekend we had the pleasure of witnessing two delightfully festive acts in all their glory; Futuristic/Robitic/ Crab (?!)- themed Metallers Evil Scarecrow supporting well loved Horror- Punkster Wednesday 13 for the “London UK Halloween Weekend” here at the Garage. Sandwiched in between his “Blood, Guts and Gore” Tour of the US and the “Astro- Psycho” Tour throughout Europe, Wednesday choosing to spend Halloween over here with us feels like a privilege and an honour, and lets face it, Halloween is probably more important to Mr 13 than Christmas! And in true festive style, his UK family is out in full force tonight!

It’s 26th of August, 2015 and Metal-Rules.com team are heading down to Brixton Academy in London to watch one of the most legenday punk rock bands of our times. On a warm summer evening like this, what can possibly be better than having a few beers with your friends and watching The Offspring live on their Coming For You tour?
Tonight at Brixton Academy is the ultimate gathering of the punk rock kids of the 90s. It’s the ultimate trip down the memory lane. The ultimate party.
Hotei @ The Lexington, London
July 7th, 2015
Words: Ann Sulaiman

Having moved to the capital some years back, rock legend Tomoyasu Hotei has stayed strong and active with his career. After a well-established (and deserved) iconic status in his native Japan, the legend then chose to across seas to gain better access to what is now a fast-growing European fanbase.
To give just a taste of his upcoming new album via Spinefarm Records, he chose the cosy, intimate venue of The Lexington Pub for tonight’s special show. Considering that this was months ahead of an even bigger one announced for October, it’s accurate to say that the small gig (and Hotei’s charming banter with his fans) gave everyone a tremendous appetite for more of his music.

Monster Magnet plus guests

Review by Ashlinn Nash
The Electric ballroom is a house of musical delight within Camden’s entertainment hub. That not complete without beer stains, pretty good prices for London and a good bubbly atmosphere the night is set for a good time Read the rest of this entry »
Skid Row Interview with Snake

Whether you know the name for the urban street down in LA, or the tumulus rock back that came swaggering out of the late 80s, everyone has heard the name somewhere. While both may be still ageing thoroughly disgracefully, there’s something about them both that remains timeless.
@ The Koko, Camden
26th September 2014
Review and Photography by Ashlinn Nash
There is a lot to be said about a band by the choice of venue, and here the Koko seems to be the perfect one for the British progressive outfit, Anathema to be in. With its dramatically pleasing high balconies and theatrical interior the venue harmonises with the bands uplifting, passion fueled and refreshing sound.
Anathema interview with Danny Cavanagh
Interview by Ashlinn Nash
Meeting a musical idol can be quite a daunting task, however if they are as humble and more importantly as down to earth as Danny Cavanagh, whose enthusiastic personality is one that can put you at ease straight away.
The Energetic front man and founding member of the Liverpool quintet, brings a whole breath of talent with him, ranging from early works such as; The Silent Enigma , A fine day to exit  and more recently Weather Systems .
It’s no wonder that talk quickly turns to the newest album released on the 9th June 2014 – Distant Satellites.
Beyond the Redshift
Curated and Headlined by Cult of Luna
The Dome – The Boston Music Rooms – The Forum
10th May 2014
Beyond the Redshift is a new turn of talent for Sweden’s curators Cult of Luna, who have created something that is both as brave as it is ambitious with the right mix of deliciously calm post-rock to the full on adrenaline of Black metal, it’s an eclectic combination that is set to go down a treat.
Monster Truck & Scorpion Child
@ Underworld, Camden
26th March 2014
Review and Photos by Ashlinn Nash
The day is grey and drizzly around the underworld, but everyone is ready for some summer tunes that conjure thoughts of going for long walks in the sunshine and parties until the sun set and that, is exactly what is on the bill for tonight’s bands plan on delivering this evening. From the looks of the crowd, there seems to be a lot of young fans here with parents celebrating the generations of the big rock family, it’s a pleasant sight to see and what a first gig to go to!
Airbourne with Black Spiders
@ Limelight, Belfast
21st October 2013
Review by Melanie Brehaut
Photography by Paul Verner
If you look in the dictionary under the term ‘rock n roll’ there’s a pretty good chance that there will be a picture of either of tonight’s acts. Sheffield’s Black Spiders and Melbourne, Australia’s Airbourne have both recently released new albums (‘This Savage Land’ from BS in September of this year, while Airbourne revealed ‘Black Dog Barking’ in May), so pairing up to tour again was a bit of a no-brainer, particularly as their previous tour was so successful.
Peter Dolving Interview
by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
At the start of 2012 Peter Dolving left The Haunted for a second time, now near the end of that same year he is preparing to release his new solo album Thieves And Liars. In fact the split seems to have opened up a whole new creative well for Peter, and one where we’re keen to see what each bucket drawn will yield. Touching on The Haunted, but focusing on his creative process and the new material, one thing you can be sure of in Peter’s chat with Metal-Rules.com is his unflinching honesty…
