Iron Maiden Lead Kerrang! Awards Nominations


Iron Maiden Guns N Roses Kerrang

The veteran heavy metal band released The Book of Souls last year (15), marking their first offering in five years. The hiatus proved to be worth the wait after the record was nominated for Best Album by bosses at the British rock magazine.

They were also nominated for Best British Band, going up against Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari, Biffy Clyro, and Asking Alexandria.

The latter two bands also scored two nods, with Biffy Clyro competing for Best Event (Edinburgh's Hogmanay), while Asking Alexandria will face off against Iron Maiden in the Best Album category for their album, The Black.

Kerrang Tour Live 2015 - University of East Anglia LCR, Norwich - February 6th Live Review


The first leg of the Kerrang Tour 2015 kicked off with a blast in Norwich on Friday (6/02/15). With Don Broco as the headliners plus We Are The In Crowd, Bury Tomorrow, Beartooth and last minute addition Young Guns all pitching in to put on one of the best shows the University of East Anglia LCR has ever seen. 

Kerrang Tour 2015 - Norwich Live Review

Beartooth opened the show with 'Beaten in Lips' and their energetic performance set the crowd off jumping and singing along. Even those who didn't know the words soon caught on. However, it was clear that this energy tired the band quickly as the space between their songs to get their breath back were perhaps a bit too long. This didn't affect their performance, however, because as soon as the music kicked in they were back, jumping around the stage and encouraging the crowd to sing and jump along too. Performing tracks off their debut album 'Disgusting', the band carried themselves with dignity and showed Norwich exactly what they are about.

Next on the list was Bury Tomorrow. If it was possible for any other artist to scream as clearly as they do on CD then this is the band that does it the best. With the first circle pit of the night created during their first song 'Man on Fire' and shouting 'raise your f***ing hands in the air', the whole venue went crazy, and not once did they put their hands down. It was just a shame that you couldn't hear the clean vocals of Jason Cameron very well over the music. Playing tracks from their albums 'Runes' and 'Union of Crowds', people of all ages, backgrounds and hair colours couldn't help but enjoy them. Even the begrudging parents who wished for earplugs and sat as far away from the speakers as possible couldn't help rocking in time to the music and being ever so slightly amazed at Bury Tomorrow's quality in every breakdown.

The Darkness Play Better Sober


The Darkness Dan Hawkins Kerrang Hammersmith Apollo

The Darkness find it much easier to play shows now they're sober.

The 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love' rockers - who originally split in 2006 over drug problems within the band - are making their comeback this summer with a string of shows and festival appearances, and find their newfound sobriety makes playing their sets much better.

Speaking after three low key comeback shows, guitarist Dan Hawkins told BANG Showbiz: "The last two or three gigs It's a new experience for me, I won't lie to you, but it's been great.
