NI ROCKS Recommends "Roadkill" by DEAD END HEROES
Apparently Dead End Heroes are a band that shouldn’t be, and “Roadkill” is an album that should have been very different. All of which makes the fact that the album is excellent all the more note-worthy. “Roadkill” was released through AOR Heaven on 30th June and it is well worth checking out.

ALBUM REVIEW: Weaving wonders with sci-fi extreme technical death metal from Allegaeon
WOW! If you want your guitars weaving wondrous technical patterns and intricacies within and throughout songs you could do worse than check out a chunk of Allegaeon's 'Elements of the Infinite'.

NI ROCKS Interview with ORIANTHI
On the Friday NI Rocks Show on 6th June we had an interview with Richie Sambora ahead of his show in the Ulster Hall on 1st July. (http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/1560-rock-radio-ni-interview-with-richie-sambora.html ) As I’ve been a fan of his touring partner Orianthi for some time it was a great privilege to record an interview with her just before she went on stage in Belfast. We believe this may have been the only interview whilst in Belfast and Rock Radio NI are delighted to have managed to get interviews with both Richie and Orianthi who have been touring together for a few months and are currently working on a new album together. We talked about the tour, writing and recording the new material, being involved in the Alice Cooper Band, Twitter and future plans amongst other things.
The interview with Orianthi was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show that broadcast on Friday 4th July. It is now available to play via the On Demand Player and is also available as a podcast. Follow this link to the On Demand Player and select the show uploaded on 2nd July. http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html
A transcript of the interview is provided below.

Slayer's force of nature blows dark winds through Belfast's Limelight
SLAYER! Yes, fucking Slayer. They are one of the most controversial, most single-minded and most extreme of the so-called Big Four of thrash. And, when it comes to live performances there are few that can compete with them when they're on form.
Rock(d) keeps rockin' with metal heat: Rabid Bitch of the North, Stormzone and Baleful Creed

THIS is just a wee reminder, for those who have been asleep and constantly ask me about gigs, about an event on 7th December, with the arrival of musicians from the Faroe Isles, Finland and Sweden.
Although it sounds like the sort of World Cup qualifying group Northern Ireland could be drawn in, this is a trio of bands that could
