Pick Your Rock and Metal

Remember The Darkness?

Remember The Darkness? Now, go on, don't deny it! You hummed along to the tunes on Permission to Land before One Way Ticket to Hell and Back disappointed you, Justin Hawkins disappeared up his own arse and the whole thing fell down in an almost predictable shambles.

Justin's brother Dan shook himself off, took a while to gather his thoughts and set about looking up the word credibility in the dictionary, marshalled the troops and emerged last year with Stone Gods.

Although the basic Darkness template is there, Stone Gods have an edgier, harder rockin' sound, which at times veers towards - and whisper this softly - trad metal.

And now it seems that they are Belfast bound. No Odyssey extravaganza this time, but a date in The Limelight.
