Metal Empire Showcase – gig review – Pt 5 Seven Kingdoms

Finally time for the last band of the evening, Seven Kingdoms from Florida. Very decent speed metal indeed. Unfortunately, they played AFTER Legion X had killed it, and so the venue started to get very empty. I, myself, also skipped out on most of this band, not because they weren’t good (they were), but after […]

Stitched Up Heart: Atlanta, GA concert review

November 4, 2016 – Atlanta, GA – The Vinyl I would like to apologize to the readers in advance if this gig review seems a bit biased. It probably is, because I just love these guys. As a band they totally rock the house and as human beings they are about as nice as they […]

Homicide Black: hbII EP review

As previously announced, here my review of the Homicide Black EP “hbII”, which was so graciously provided to me by the band at their Atlanta gig on Oct 29th (PMM reported). The packaging itself differs from most recordings you can buy at gigs. The cover opens up with a flap to the left and then a […]
