Parkway Drive + Emmure & The Word Alive - London Roundhouse 17th November 2012

Before I start let me just state that while the rest of the gig went absolutely fucking horribly as I will explain below, I plan to stay as unbiased and professional as possible when discussing the bands and their performances. Please be aware that I am not attacking anyone in my article below, I am merely relaying my experiences from the other night in an attempt to inform and educate.

And now, to business...

Parkway Drive - Atlas (2012)

After a few days of quiet writing, we have Aaron's review of Parkway Drive's latest, the simply titled "Atlas". But first, as a big Suicide Silence fan, Aaron would like to leave his own personal message regarding Mitch Lucker's passing from this world.

Before I get started I’d like to offer my condolences to the friends and family of Mitch Lucker, the late vocalist of Suicide Silence. Mitch was cruelly taken from us at 28 when he lost his life in a tragic motorcycle accident. I’ve always been a huge fan of Suicide Silence and one of my greatest regrets was that I never had the privilege of seeing them live. His vocals were among the best in the business, with a screaming range that was particularly impressive and made Suicide Silence a standout band in their genre. The Metal community will forever remember and miss you and it breaks my heart that his daughter Kenadee will grow up without her Father. R.I.P Mitch.

And now without further ado, the main reason you're all here.

Evile + Wolf - Norwich OPEN - 27th October 2012

So, after a week or so of inactivity (otherwise known as uni work) I've come back today with a new gig review and a couple of album reviews, from now on I will also be trying to write a couple of new segments: "Sound Of The Underground" where I review an album that may not have shown up on most people's radars but I feel shows a lot of promise, and "From the vault" where I review a "classic" album and offer a new perspective.

So without further pissing around, here is my review for Evile and Wolf's co-headlining gig in Norwich. Enjoy...

R.I.P. Mitch Lucker

Just thought I'd take this time to say how gutted I am to hear about the death of Suicide Silence's Mitch Lucker. I only became a Suicide Silence fan in recent months but I was definitely saddened by this news. He was a very skilled vocalist and a talented performer. His last album, "The Black Crown" helped propel SS to the peak of their success, and it's such a damn shame that a fine young musician is taken at the peak of his career so far. My condolences to his bandmates and his friends and family worldwide, the greatest tragedy of all is that his daughter will now grow up not knowing her father.

R.I.P. Mitch, you won't be forgotten.
