Tour Diary: Radio Moscow – Day 3

Photo by JT Rhoades Last night was the third and final night with the Groundhogs, and I dare say it’s been the best night so far.

Tour Diary: Radio Moscow – Day 2

Tour diary: Radio Moscow – Day 1

First day on the road with Radio Moscow and I’m currently on the verge of dying from alcohol poisoning and bad decisions.

Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2017

Two nights ago, it was time for the annual Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards at London’s indigo2, a celebration of pretty much everything related to heavy rock. The night saw performances from bands and artists such as UK Stoner legends Orange Goblin (who’s frontman Ben Ward snapped up the ‘Defender of the Faith award along […]
