“Co-headlining tours” are just a thing booking agents set up to stop bands’ respective managers throwing a hissy fit over where their charges are in the running order, right? The most recent players of this deadly game of brinkmanship are Cancer Bats and While She Sleeps. We sent Josh Graham along to the Glasgow leg of the tour to scope out which band came out on top.

6 things we learnt while watching Cancer Bats and While She Sleeps in Glasgow:

Up to this point, conversations among metal fans about Bleed From Within probably went something along these lines:

“Do you like Bleed From Within?”

“I’ve never listened to them, to be honest.”

“They’re okay.”

It’s not the ideal reaction a band is looking for but the Glasgow lads have never quite been able to make that big an impact.

Progressive Nation Interview: Fredrik Akesson of Opeth on being in Opeth, not Dream Theater

October 22nd, 2009

With Swedish metallers Opeth recently touring with prog overlords Dream Theater, Chris Cope caught up with axeman Fredrik Akesson to talk about his role in the band and why Scandinavia creates so many big, bad metalheads.

Opeth

It’s nearly show-time at the final UK show of the tour, and we’re enlisted with the task of taking the burly, hairy man out of his cosy dressing room for a chat. Thankfully Fredrik doesn’t mind standing about in the cold wasteland of boxes and gear behind the stage. It’s extremely dark. Hope he doesn’t bite…

Progressive Nation Interview: Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater on Prog, Portnoy and iPhones

October 21st, 2009

When progressive metal godfathers Dream Theater landed in Glasgow to wow the wits out of far-from-innocent people with 113/19 time signatures, Chris Cope sat down for a quick chinwag with keyboard wizard Jordan Rudess

In a few hours he’ll be onstage, headlining the Glasgow SECC, but just now Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess is pretending to be a normal human being and lounging in a hotel bar. There’s a red carpet outside, but that’s for the Indian wedding guests congregating behind us, not for Jordan, or indeed Thrash Hits. The cheek.

Live & Photos: Mastodon @ Glasgow ABC – 07 June 2009

June 11th, 2009

Before embarking upon a range of dates upon the European mainland, Mastodon popped over to the UK for a mini-tour of smaller venues. Chris Cope was there in Glasgow to watch a Crack The Skye extravaganza

This is loud stuff. Reaching Motorhead-esque volume levels, Mastodon seem to have laced their guitar leads with dynamite, and after a couple of songs in, the crowd’s ears are both pricking excitedly but also curling over to try and protect themselves from impending deafness.
