A COUPLE of years Bakken exploded on to the Northern Ireland scene with the release of their 'Death of a Hero' album, jam-packed with thrash and power metal, and the occasional doff of the cap towards Celtic roots.

From then on the band crafted out their sound with a series of gigs which notably saw them tighten their

Swedish band Sister Sin released their new album “Black Lotus” in October. The band have now released five albums since forming in 2002 and have toured extensively building up a considerable fan base in many countries. The current line-up includes Liv Jagrell on vocals, Jimmy Hiltula on guitar, Dave Sundberg on drums and Strandh on bass. We linked up with the band through their label Victory Records to get a few questions answered by Jimmy. During this time it was announced that Sister Sin would be supporting U.D.O. on tour in Europe between March and May 2015. This includes two dates in the UK.

New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) is one of those music genre labels that I now associate with the music of my youth, although I’m not sure that I ever recognised it as such at the time. Back in the early 80s the only genre label that mattered to me was rock as opposed to ska, new romanticism or whatever else happened to be popular that year. Thankfully NWOBHM and those that it inspired still have a big following, although it often seems that a high percentage of those fans are, well…blokes of a certain age, shall we say!

All that rambling brings me to “The Slaughter New Stops” which is the new release from NWOBHM stalwarts Avenger. The album was released on 1st December through Rocksector Records. If you listen to the NI Rocks Show you may have heard me play the cover of Iron Maiden’s “Killers” from the album or you may have seen the video somewhere.

THE song goes that "It's Seven O'clock, time for a party" and on Friday 21st November The Quireboys led a triple-headed monster of a party with beer flowing, voices raised and music the dripped with pathos, bathos, the blues, and damn fine rock 'n' roll.

Even the blackened heart of a dyed in the wool,

“Adrenaline Rush” is the fourth studio album from German band Wicked Sensation and it was released through AOR Heaven on 1st December 2014. The band formed back in 1999 and it’s been four years since the release of their previous album “Crystallized”. Fans of the band or of the melodic metal genre will find a lot to like with this new album. It took only the briefest of listens for me to decide that “Adrenaline Rush” was an album to download and that it would be featuring on the NI Rocks Playlists on Rock Radio NI.
