CONCERT REVIEWS

Bottom Feeder / Moonless

Mar/09/2013

March 6th, 2013 at The Filthy Grass Chamber/Hagen, GER First off: that was a truly cozy evening with lots of heavy and nasty music! For one thing, this was due to the place where the concert took place. The Filthy Grass Chamber is the rehearsal room of Nightslug, Burial as well as Union Of Sleep, and it is located in an industrial building outside from the centre of Hagen...

The Bellrays

Aug/28/2012

June 26th, 2012 at Druckluft/Oberhausen, GER I was immensely pleased when I noticed that THE BELLRAYS would play a show in my hometown Oberhausen. Firstly, because I'm a huge fan of California's finest purveyors of soulful hard-egded rock 'n' roll and also because good shows are rare in Oberhausen...

Stoned From The Underground Festival 2012

Jul/25/2012

July 12th - 14, 2012 at Erfurt-Stotternheim (Alperstedter See), GER The positive impression of my first visit to the Stoned From The Underground in Erfurt/Germany led me to writing down a festival review of sorts. Of sorts, because neither did I prepare for the review by writing down notices during a band's set nor will this feature every band...

Coffins / Depression / Escarnium / Faal

May/07/2012

May 5th, 2012 at AJZ Bahndamm/Wermelskirche, GER Coffins made themselves pretty rare for fans outside Japan. Although they started in 1996 and got a huge fanbase, especially in Europe, they started their first European tour in 2011 when they played some highly anticipated shows, topped with their appearance at the Roadburn in Tilburg...

Wino & Conny Ochs

May/03/2012

April 8th, 2012 at Christuskirche/Cologne, GER Unfortunately I missed the first tour of Scott 'Wino' Weinrich and Conny Ochs two years ago. At this time, Conny Ochs opened up for Wino but after a couple of shows they decided to play together on stage...

Sasquatch / Roadsaw / Dixie Witch

Oct/26/2011

October 20th, 2011 at Club Zwölfzehn/Stuttgart, GER You cannot imagine, dear readers, how truly thrilled I was to hear that this excellent package will play a couple of shows in Germany. All three bands belong to my favorites of the Small Stone Records label roster and I know that especially ROADSAW and DIXIE WITCH unfold their true power on stage...

Black Pyramid / Blood Farmers

May/04/2011

APRIL 15th, 2011 at Falkendom/Bielefeld, GER When the news arrived that BLOOD FARMERS would tour Europe I was more than excited. First, because the FARMERS belong to my set of absolute favourite bands and second because I still can remember being floored by their gig on the Doom Or Be Doomed Fest in Baltimore 2007...

Saint Vitus / The Graviators

Dec/22/2010

DECEMBER 15th, 2010 at Bastard Club/Osnabrück, GER When I heard that Saint Vitus was going to play the Bastard Club in Osnabrück, I could not believe it. The place has recently moved from Osnabrück's Skate Hall to a new location and when I finally arrived, there I found that the place was small but looked great...

Roky Erickson

Dec/19/2010

DECEMBER 12th, 2010 at Luxor/Cologne, GER When I first heard about Roky Erickson's upcoming European tour in 2010, I was electrified, especially because he would play one exclusive show in Germany and that would take place at the Luxor in Cologne. Cologne is not far from my hometown Oberhausen and so it was clear to me from the beginning that this was a gig with required attendance...

Trouble / Pentagram

Oct/25/2009

OCTOBER 3rd, 2009 at Turock/Essen, GER Who would have dared to imagine 4 years ago that Bobby Liebling would be able to go on tour in Europe? Certainly only a very few people. But sometimes miracles happen...
