Album Review: Beatsteaks - Beatsteaks

Posted by: Chris Hearn  //  November 30, 2014 @ 5:59pm

Beatsteaks are one of my all-time favourite bands, so this review may come across as a tad biased. But, come ON, they are the Beatsteaks. To me, this is the best band Germany has given to the world (sorry Scorpions). Danke to you, Germany!

And so was the bass player for Black Mastiff who was the opening band for the tour. He expressed it often, using much profanity, just how excited he was to be part of this.

Live Review (and some ramblings): Amon Amarth in Winnipeg, MB

Posted by: William O'Donnell  //  October 8, 2014 @ 2:38pm

It was a Monday night. What better way to escape the mundane and celebrate being one-day into your work week than with some eardrum shattering metal? Who said a good night's rest?! Get out of here! .... Good...
