ALESTORM, pirate metal, booze fuelled madness, laughter, inappropriate jokes and this time in Belfast with a support cast of equally swashbuckling characters in the city's Mandella Hall (17th October).

Billed as Piratefest this was the 34th show of the tour, and all the acts are honed like the sharpened Damascus Steel blade of a

“The Great Divide” is the excellent fourth album from Allen / Lande and it was released through Frontiers Records on 17th October. The album marks a new departure for the band, but at its heart remains the collaboration between vocalists Russell Allen (Symphony X) and Jorn Lande (Masterplan). The previous three albums released between 2005 and 2010 featured the song-writing and musical talents of Swedish guitar player Magnus Karlsson. On “The Great Divide” the song-writing duties pass to Timo Tolkki, along with the recording of the guitars, bass and keyboards and the production of the album.

Daylight Robbery have just released their latest album “Falling Back to Earth” – it is now available for download, with physical copies available soon. This is the follow on to the excellent debut album “Cross Your Heart” which was released in 2011 and which you may have heard tracks from on some of the NI Rocks Shows on Rock Radio NI. Daylight Robbery are a band that trace their history back to the late 80s when they were playing in the clubs around Birmingham (England) and supporting touring bands in the area.

“Now” is the third album from Italian band Planethard, but the first to feature new vocalist Davide Merletto. Sometimes the first thirty seconds or so of the first track on an album can give you a fairly good feel for what you can expect from the rest of the album. On “Now”, the opening track “Play Harder” certainly captured my attention and it proved to be a good indicator for the remaining tracks. As I tend to only have time to skip through albums that are sent into the station before deciding if I want to download them, that ability to grab my attention makes all the difference! “Now” was released through Scarlet Records on 13th October. Check out the track “Play Harder” on the Friday NI Rocks Show first broadcast on 17th October.

“Sex First” is the debut album from Italian band Midnight Sin. It was released through Bakerteam Records on 14th October. I always say that I don’t like applying musical genre labels to bands and I’m not even sure that I could in this case. The press release from Midnight Sin’s record label says that their music is a “sexy combination of Sleaze Rock, Hard Rock and AOR”. Take from that what you will until you get a chance to listen to some of the tracks from “Sex First” and judge for yourselves. You can hear “Midnight Revolution” on the Friday NI Rocks Show first broadcast on 17th October.

Australian rockers Electric Mary first came to my attention around 2007 when they featured on a CD sampler from Classic Rock Magazine* . Soon after, the band were associated with the short-lived Classic Rock Magazine Powerage Records project and their second album “Down to the Bone” was re-released through that label. Since then they’ve released another couple of EPs and their third album and have embarked on a number of tours, including two in the UK. Having heard quite a few reports of how good they are live I’ve been hoping to see them perform for some time. That opportunity finally comes on Friday 7th November when Electric Mary kick off a European tour in the Diamond Rock Club, Ahoghill. That show comes just a few days after the UK release of their latest EP “The Last Great Hope”.

We contacted lead singer Rusty Brown to see if we could arrange an interview before their arrival and he was good enough to answer a few questions put to him via e-mail.

WHEN you note that one-man metal act Foul Body Autopsy has opened for the likes of Cancerous Womb, Flayed Disciple, Cannibal Corpse, Aborted, Basement Torture Killings and Decapitated you can figure out that this isn't a one-man band with a banjo and a bass drum busking in seaside towns.

THE lords of the riff smiled on the Limelight2 on Friday(10th October) as Triggerman brought the riffage tumbling down the Glenshane Pass, along the M2 and straight into the smiling faces of the devoted, afflicted with the rock lurgy.

If you need that introduction translated then you need to get some Triggerman in your

“Soulbender II” is essentially a re-release of Soulbender’s self titled debut alarm with the addition of four new tracks. However, as I never owned a copy of the original 2004 release, “Soulbender II” is all new and all good to me! The album was released through Rat Pak Records on 30th September. I’ve already included a couple of tracks on the Friday NI Rocks Show – “Slave to Reality” which is one of the new tracks and “Rabbit Hole” which is one of the re-mastered original tracks.

LET there be guitars, and there were guitars, and fingers of many took hold of these "strange devices"* and when they touched it "brought forth a sound" and with each passing year the sounds and spells woven by these strange devices became more and more intricate.


From Iommi's doom-laden chords, to Eddie Van Halen's explosive
