Iron Reagan Rock Arkansas

Iron Reagan

As you have heard me bemoan before, being in law school and working fulltime is a suckfest. One of the side effects of this lifestyle is that I hadn’t been to a concert in almost a year. Luckily I broke the cycle of abstaining from live performance and went to see blackened thrashers Occultist and […]

Cloudkicker: It’s Live!

Ben Sharp

Holy Bajeezus! What a happy day! Although I can’t afford to abandon my day job and school for a bit to go follow around Cloudkicker on tour, there is YouTube and people with cameras.  Believe me, if I had the capability, and Cloudkicker toured regularly, I’d be at, like, every show. I’d be like a […]

Iced Earth Deliver Masterful Set For Australian Audience

Stu Block

Ever since it was announced, I was looking forward to seeing Iced Earth return to Australia. I’d seen Iced Earth at their first-ever Australian show in 2012 and it was amazing, so I knew what to expect. Unfortunately, the universe conspired against the bands playing and resulted in a performance that musically wasn’t top-notch, but […]

Mastodon, Gojira, Baroness Blast Aussies


I know, I know, this one’s late too. Uni’s crazy already and I’ve been at Obscene Extreme all weekend, so now that I have time I’m churning this out for you all. So, Mastodon, Gojira, and Baroness: that’s probably one of the best lineups I’ve ever heard. And I knew as soon as it was […]
