9/10 … Legend has it that the majority of the Hultsfred Festival’s 21,000 paying visitors directly or indirectly had sex with a Wu-Tang Clan member in 1997. Slightly exaggerated, probably. But the Wu-Tang Clan had demanded 450 condoms from the organizers before their gig at the Festival …
9/10 … Awesome Tiny Desk concert from December the 5th, 2018. I got goosebumps more or less during the whole 21 minutes. The legends deliver, even though my two favourite members Method Man and Ghostface isn’t present here. Sit back and enjoy …

Rendez-vous Houston: A City in Concert was a live performance by musician Jean Michel Jarre amidst the skyscrapers of downtown Houston on the evening of April 5, 1986, coinciding with the release of the Rendez-Vous album. For a period of time, it held a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest outdoor “rock concert” in history, with figures varying from 1 […]
It was only seven shows in seven days in 1989. But it will never be forgotten. Four of the best death metal and grindcore bands in the world, united by the leading extreme metal record label at the time, Earache. The Grindcrusher Tour was more than just a brief tour organized by Earache Records that started […]
9/10 … By 1976, Herbie Hancock was a true rock star. He had established himself as a huge talent during his Blue Note career in the 1960s before joined the legendary second Miles Davis Quintet with Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. That in turn led to Filles de Kilimanjaro, In a Silent Way, and Bitches Brew, and the rock and jazz worlds melded into a delicious fusion cocktail…
Drum & Bass: The Movement explores how a unique UK club culture rose from the underground to become a global phenomenon infiltrating and influencing disciplines from mainstream pop music to video games. From dubplates to mainstream crossovers, to some of the labels, tracks and clubs that helped shape the scene, Drum & Bass: The Movement […]
7/10 … Here’s a soundboard recording from the British Steel tour on June 25th, 1980. It was the first time they visited Denver. I really like the energy here, maybe Rob Halfords voice is a bit too low in the mix. According to Setlist FM it was also the live premier of “Living After Midnight”….
9/10 … In 1968, Sly & The Family Stone appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show performing the exuberant but little-known album track “Love City.” The following year, they returned to the show for what proved to be a legendary performance, playing an excerpt from their #1 hit “Everyday People” before launching into the iconic “Dance To The Music.” In both episodes, the home viewer was presented with a high energy performance by a band fully engaged with both the audience and themselves. On Sullivan, the band was facing each other just as often as they were facing the cameras. At the center of the action was Sly Stone who, when not playing the organ, was breaking into explosive dance routines on stage, and at one point running into the audience with his bandmate and sister Rose. Clearly this was a band determined to not only win over their audience, but truly own them from beginning until end.
Here we have two legendary concerts, released within a year of each other at the height of the bands popularity. Don’t really know why there is no material from the underrated “At War With Satan” album (8/10) from 1984. I would love to find out more background information about how they where recorded and why […]
56,000 saw them on the spot. More than half a million watched them on television. When “The Big Four” took over Gothenburg, Sweden, the influx of spectators was as total as the dominance of the four bands on the thrash metal scene. Die-hard metal fans booked tickets early on for this year’s biggest metal event […]
8/10 … This is an amazing concert, although a year before my favourite period with the band, the tour following the album “Piece of Mind”. Energy fueled as always, the band looks and sound amazing and Bruce looks cool as f**k in his haircut, leather armband and jacket. It also hits me how underrated “Children of the Damned” is, a pure epic masterpiece. The only reason I don’t give this 9 or 10 out of 10 is because it’s not complete and all of sudden when you’re,deep into it, you get pulled back out because it’s a non video part. With that say, fantastic job from whoever did this.
This is one of these event in history I could cut off my right hand arm to have been at. Ozzy and Judas Priest are 10/10, I liked Mötley Crue’s first two albums before they got to much ”hair metal”. Their set here is also good 8/10, although Vince Neils singing here doesn’t really sound perfect. Quiet Riot, Triumph and Van Halen are not really for me so I haven’t even watched these. Scorpions had very energetic live shows during the 80’s, but unfortunatly there doesn’t seem to have surfaced any source of their show from this day.
Update 2021-04-15 LaPlage de Glazart in Paris, France for Cercle entered the list at #3. I love this kind of techno, the real thing … not Walmart techno, you now the kind of techno that plays in Hollywood movies when they have a rave party on screen, some kind of bubble gum version of the […]
10/10 … If Aliens would land here and ask me to show them one record of each music style we have here on planet earth … this would definitly be the one I’ll show them when presenting Heavy Metal. Judas Priest 1982-84 (Screaming/Defenders) era is the pinnacle of Heavy Metal for me. Both the music, the clothing style, the live performances and sound. This is Heavy Metal …
