Prog Metal arch priests Coheed and Cambria are to headline this year's Kerrang! tour which kicks off in Belfast on 23rd January at the Mandella Hall. Joining the New Jerse noise crew will be Fightstar, Madina Lake and Circa Survive..well at least Coheed and Cambria will be there!

Hallowe'en cancellation

Circumstances beyond the control of bands, promoter and venue has led to the cancellation of the Hallowe'en metal night at the Rosetta. Corrupt Absolute, Psyatica and the Rosetta Bar apoloigise for the cancellation of what promised to be fantastic Hallowe'en noise fest...this was a no-one to blame situation for everyone invovled.

Hawaiin Hallowe'en metal at the Rosetta

Hallowe'en night -it can be so clich├ęd - all those fancy dress costumes that cost a fortune...well to hell with that - head to the Rosetta on Wednesday 31st to witness the metallic majesty that is Hawaiin's Corrupt Absolute! And with Limerick's monstrous Psyatica backing them up.

And at £6 it's sure as hell cheaper than renting a costly fancy dress outfit that you'll only spill beer over while listening to the feckin' Time Warp for the third time!

Biffy!

Their weird, Scottish and Baal hates them (my mate not the Mesoptamian diety)...and they're playing Belfast's Mandella Hall on 21st December.

Ok, they'll not appeal to many metal fans, but they rock hard, and their latest platter, Puzzle, is one of the finest hard rock albums of the year.

And, at a time when many acts are by-passing Belfast on their tour itinerary this will be Biffy's second visit this year...

Speed and RE

Stuck for something to do tomorrow nightt? Head along to the Spring & Airbrake...Raging Speedhorn are playing ably supported by local noiseniks (and all round great guys) Residual Effect. A metallic assault to clear the head!

Volcanic metal assault on Hallowe'en night

Hawaii is one of a series of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean. Corrupt Absolute are an old school thrash act from Honolulu, Hawaii – providing a volcanic metal soundtrack…a soundtrack that will descend on Ireland’s shores later this month.

Corrupt Absolute (formerly 8mm Overdose) are touring with Psyatica, a tour which culminates in Belfast at the Rosetta – on Hallowe’en night!

There has, of course, been a dearth of metal acts from Hawaii…name two apart Corrupt Absolute if you can!

And, left you think that Corrupt Absolute are new young things with no track record, the band has been going since the 90s, with their first CD out in 1997 (under the 8mm Overdose monicker).

Psyatica are currently midway what is an unlikely, but well deserved world tour (yep you read that right!) that has seen them tackle Hawaii, west coast USA, Ireland, Scotland and Scandanavian countries.

For anyone who has clocked the Limerick trio recently, you’ll know they’re worth the £6 entry fee to the Rosetta on Hallowe’en night alone. Throw in the Hawaiian metal assault...then get your metal asses along!
