Headless Kross – Belfast, Voodoo – 30 July 2016

For Glaswegian doom mongers Headless Kross, their annual trips to the island of Ireland have become something of a pilgrimage. This evening their latest visit is well-rewarded, as, despite the gig’s early hour, Voodoo’s intimate upstairs club is rammed almost to capacity with those who enjoy their rock at the …

Desecration – Belfast, Voodoo 19/02/2014

School night gigs in Belfast – possibly in common with most other locales – are notoriously difficult to fill, unless of course they involve a “big name” touring band.  But, increasingly, Thursday nights seem to be becoming the “new Friday” and so a healthy crowd of 70 or so grinders …

Baleful Creed – Belfast, Voodoo 13/06/2014

Rape Crisis Centre gig poster

For those of a superstitious mien, Friday the 13th is not exactly a lucky talisman – and so it proves, at least partially, for the organizers of this charity fundraiser gig (in aid of the hugely-underfunded Belfast Rape Crisis Centre) as, despite huge advance marketing and PR campaigns, other mitigating …

Altus – Exclusive PlanetMosh interview


Having appeared from apparently out of nowhere less than six months ago, Altus have taken the Northern Ireland scene by the scruff of the neck and given it a jolly good old-fashioned seeing to!  They’ve certainly made some waves in that short period time – with threats of legal action …
