Hard Rock Hell 9: House of Horrors Announces Saxon as first Headline Act

 HRH

Hard Rock Hell 2015, aptly titled ‘House of Horrors’, which is the 9th cycle of the winter music festival have announced heavy metal titans, Saxon back into their realm of mayhem thanks to popular demand from the HRH Fans. It will be 5 years since their last visit and this year’s set will be a 2 hour jaw dropper. With a mammoth back catalogue that stretches back to 1976.

Joining Saxon will be 80’s all-female NWOBHM Vets, Rock Goddess, who have recently enjoyed a positive resurgence and are looking forward to gracing the stage in front of the HRH faithful.

They will both be joined by another band who have been ordered in by popular demand, the unstoppable Black Spiders who are a particular favourite of mine and can currently be seen gracing stages all across the world.

HRH are renowned for plucking some gems out of far flung territories and the first one to be announced this year with a huge injection of Psychedelia are Swedish Heroes Skanska Mord. They will be joined by Swedish bretheren Riot Horse. Check out their track Medicine Man below.

Completing the first announcement are Outlaw Biker Rockers, Pig Iron who have just signed to sister label, Off Yer Rocka Recordings. These boys are well worth checking out if you are a fan of the almighty riff.

Hard Rock Hell 9: House of Horrors will be held in the usual location at Hafan y Mor Haven site in Phwellhi, Gwynedd, North Wales from the 12th to 15th November.

If you have not been before make sure you get down there this year as it is one of the highlights of my calendar. There is just something about a Rock and Metal festival at the ends of the earth, in the middle of winter on a holiday camp that creates a certvery unique festival experience. There is always great bands, great people and a whole lotta fun to be had.

Day Passes have now been released and can be booked @ www.hardrockhell.com/tickets

Gallows Announce new album ‘Desolation Sounds’ to be released 13 April

New single ‘Bonfire Season’ announced for digital release and 7″ pre order

Iconic British Punk band Gallows have announced the release of their latest album ‘Desolation Sounds’, to be released through their own label Venn and Play it again Sam Records on April 13th. ‘Desolation Sounds’ is Gallows fourth album. Titled after an expanse of water in frontman Wade MacNeil’s native Canada. It features ten songs, runs for 36 minutes and might just be the most bleakly beautiful, weighty and affecting collection of music you will hear this year.

The album represents a new chapter in Gallows career as they move towards their tenth anniversary. Co-produced by Steve Sears at Titan Studios, Watford, it builds upon the aggression and passion of the band’s acclaimed catalogue while opening up new horizons for the band. It is, as Gallows founding member Lags says, ‘the album I’ve dreamt about making.’

The new single ‘Bonfire Season’ will be available as a digital release and 7″ pre order at http://www.gallows.co.uk.
