01-07-2018 Tuska Festival
As the first band playing on Sunday you always have a bit of bad luck.

The guys are quite young, but eager to make […]

The concert hall was KadıköySahne which is a small and always packed venue. I was in the second row with my metalhead friend who […]
Sometimes everything goes a bit different than planned. But with a bit of effort you can work your way around it. This Wednesday Magenta Harvest and Khroma were due to play in ACU. Unfortunately one of the venue’s staff passed away that day. Not really a day to party to. Obviously the gig there could […]
Sold out house in Frankfurt tonight! One of the bigger venues in town is packed with fans and people that came to have a good night. An easy task if you went out to see the two German bands Turbostaat and Beatsteaks. And luckily, that was the case for tonight.
