Bull-Riff Stampede

Bull-Riff Stampede 

UK based Bull-Riff Stampede hail from Bristol, Weymouth and Nottingham. By their own description, they play a hybrid mix of old school influences that has been described as ‘a devastatingly heavy combination of Thrash and Death Metal’. I personally hear a huge Carcass vibe to their sound myself. I say that a massive compliment as Carcass are one of my all time favourite bands! 
The lads have been plugging away for a few years now with slots at Bloodstock, Wacken, Download and most recently HammerFest VIII. Their debut album ‘Scatter The Ground’ was Tracked in late 2010, Mixed at various intervals through 2011 and was released in November of that year.
They are now set to release their next and defining album “Enraging The Beast” this July after two tough years making this album a reality. I reckon it’s going to have been worth it if the title track is anything to go by! 
The album is now available to pre-order after a highly successful Pledge campaign. I got the £30 bundle myself. So if you like the sound of this? Head over and buy their stuff. You’ll be helping a top upcoming band here! I’ll put a link after the title track along with their Facebook page! 

Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls of all ages! I present to you! Bull-Riff Stampedeeeee!!!!

Templemore Metal Festival Feature

Templemore Metal Festival 


The Templemore Metal Festival takes place this weekend in The Old Malt House in Templemore. Doors at 12pm and a measly €5 admission! 
In this piece I shall link all the acts playing the festival. Outside Cobhboys From Hell as they’re a tribute band, but sure I’ll throw in a classic there to keep the momentum! The Slayer Tribute band Slayar have sadly had to pull out, so the Cobhboys lads are doing two sets on the day. Whooper! 
12 Gauge Outrage have also now joined the line up in place of Arjunas Eye. 
Enough talk! Here’s the amazing line up. I’ll just post links and their Facebook pages for further details. Keep it to the music here!

With summer finally arriving we see ourselves with an utter feast of gigs over the coming months , we of course have Templmore metal fest this June bank holiday weekend hosting a variety of top metal acts such as AESECT , JENOVA , ZHORA and many many more!


Now before you go , “Awh fuck , I live in Leitrim and theres nothing on this weekend “THINK AGAIN!!!


This June Bank Holiday weekend will be host to Gothic Species , Ireland’s Premier Annual Gothic And Industrial Festival Gathering.


Whats this all about , tell me more you say ??


Species is organized, managed, crafted, painted, sculpted, performed, arranged, maintained and benefited by a diverse spectrum of members old and new to the Gothic & Industrial community of Ireland, who offer a wealth of talent across many disciplines but rarely get a chance to exhibit it so collectively.


Whether you are into dark art , Gothic ambient wizardry or just straight up metal this is the place to be , being that this is a metal blog we will be solely focusing on the metal acts performing at this years Species.


On Friday night at The Great Hall Stage we have to one and only Unkindness Of Ravens who will be playing an hour slot from 9:30pm-10:30pm. UNKINDNESS OF RAVENS are a darkened Post Rock band from Tipperary/Offaly who represented Ireland with a very high slot in the running order of the siege of Limerick recently , and will be playing in Templemore metal Fest the day after their performance at Species.


Next up we have DJ ANNATAR who will be giving us a feast of metal to mosh to while all necking our cans of dutch !


PACKMAN is a DJ who has officially been ordained as a latter day dude and will have multiple slots over the course of the weekend belting the metal tunes from the decks to ensure there is never a moment of silence.


Also on the Metal Stage on Saturday night , we have progressive death metalers from Cork , PETHROPHIA who are currently species virgins. they will be traveling up from Cork on Friday evening to play their 11pm Saturday night set on the Metal Stage of Species to and have their species virginity gruesomely ripped from within them.


To finish up we will also be seeing ɗʉɭʈ on The Great Hall Stage at 11pm Saturday night for what can be described as a dark ritual of doom , dirge and wizardry that will make you tremble in fear but unable to look away.


The campsite holds about 300 people , its 30 quid for Friday to Sunday with camping and general shenanigans. Its a steal…..GO TO IT!
