The Best Rock/Metal Albums Of 2016.

I initially intended to write an end of year top 10, but there have been so many amazing albums released this year that I got a little carried away and made a top 30 instead. I've omitted EPs (although I have to give a shout out to the particularly enjoyable EPs by Ghost [review here], Skarlett Riot, Black Sabbath, Lilith And The Knight [review here] and Novacrow), and I've also omitted my own bands album, as including it would be egotistical and a little sad. Click HERE to read about that one.


About: LESBIAN BED DEATH - Evil Never Dies

Lesbian Bed Death - Evil Never Dies

Only an utter cretin would review their own band's album. However, I'm incredibly proud of Evil Never Dies so please indulge me, as I'd like to write a bit about it.


Thursday, 29 December 2016


I'm a huge fan of the first two Purge movies, so much so that my band wrote a song about them (Check out Survive the Night by Lesbian Bed Death on the Evil Never Dies album). To say I was very excited to see this third instalment in the franchise is an understatement. Unfortunately, I missed it at the cinema this year. I'm lucky enough to have three cinemas close to where I live, yet only one showed it. Even then, the movie disappeared really quickly. I was genuinely gutted when I looked at the listings to go and see it and it was already gone. It's sad that Horror movies don't seem to have the mainstream appeal in the UK that they do in America. So alas, my sorry ass had to wait for several months to watch it. I bought the Blu-Ray on Boxing Day, the day it went on sale here. I'm pleased to say it was worth the wait.

Top 20 HORROR MOVIES for Halloween

It's nearly Halloween, so I thought I'd compile a list of my 20 favourite Horror Movies of all time. I love every single one of these movies more than you could possibly imagine, despite almost all of them being panned by critics. I've kept the list to one movie per franchise to avoid Friday 13th  dominating it. I'm sure that my top 20 will prompt outrage from geeks across the world, especially due to the omission of several revered classics but I really don't care. I'm going to sit here and contemplate the sheer awesomeness of Jason X while devouring pizza. Oh, and I've included a few of my favourite scenes and trailers too. Enjoy!

Gig review: CHUCK MOSLEY at The Underground, Stoke-on-Trent 03/10/2016

For those unfamiliar with Chuck Mosley, he was the lead singer on the first two Faith No More albums, We Care A Lot and Introduce Yourself. Both of which were hugely influential on the Alternative Rock/Metal scene, and are still as relevant today as when they came out. Chuck has also been a member of Cement and Bad Brains as well as a solo artist. But let's be honest here, the vast majority of his fan base including myself, discovered Chuck through Faith No More. When I heard he was doing a full UK tour, and better still, playing a few miles from home, I was extremely excited.

Gig review: MEGARA & TRECE DIAS at Sala BeCool, Barcelona 17/09/16

I was in a record shop in Barcelona recently, and picked up a few flyers for various gigs and club nights. One of them was a for a Megara and Trece Dias gig due to happen that same day. I hadn't heard of either before, but I was feeling adventurous and decided to go check them out.

The Barcelona Rock / Metal / Alternative Scene

I went on holiday to Barcelona (13th-20th September 2016), and decided to check out as many Rock/Metal/Goth/Alternative venues as I could while I was there. Barcelona has a reputation for being a 'City of Heavy Metal', so I felt duty bound to investigate and write about it. I did some research on the internet before I went, but most of the information was out of date, and a number of the rock bars that had been written about online had been closed down for some time. Obviously all the information I'm writing is currently accurate, but if you're reading the article some point in the future, it's always worth making sure that the venues still exist by checking the internet.
