/Stormblast last night was another of those…interesting nights. Turnout was pretty good, a lot of positive comment, and the realisation that word travels further than you might expect on the internet. But then, I should have known that.
/Stormblast last night was a bit of a strange one. Not a bad turnout, and an interesting set of people, too. We have gained a new set of regulars in addition to the rest whose requests are sending us in a different direction again! Look for some new developments with Stormblast in the coming month […]
They’re back, and still evolving. Moving further along from the more darkwave feel of Holy, this “EP” (10 tracks, over 50 minutes!) is a taster for the forthcoming album Exile Paradise. And what a taste. The sound of this is fresher, more alive than before, and perhaps more straightforward sounding. The one criticism, perhaps, in […]
Right, I’ll own up now. I’ve never been a fan of concept albums. Although the album is loosely based around a story, it has many parallels in our current time. And with the recent releases of films about dark future worlds (Aeon Flux and V for Vendetta, of course…), it perhaps could not arrive at […]
Thanks to those that did make it out last night through the nasty weather to /Stormblast. Slightly busier than last week, although our numbers appeared to be down a little on normal thanks to a metal gig elsewhere.
it was a quick dash through the late evening onto Quarantine, where the turnout was pretty good, as it goes, for 3ulogy’s live appearance. What did surprise me first off was that the Hubs venue seems better suited to live bands than club nights – the cavernous rooms do nothing for club sound, as I […]

Bit of a strange night in town last night. A little quieter than usual at Stormblast – but still good enough to keep us busy with requests as ever, and Ubersonic was rather quiet too. However walking through the City Centre late last night, everything seemed a little subdued. Are we back into the silly […]
Malice In Wonderland at The Nelson last night was more than a little strange. A good turnout – with many different people from the norm – some real effort gone into by the organisers (I was only helping out by DJing!), and more than anything it was pretty good fun. With a slightly different emphasis […]
Through the ice and snow I got to the Leadmill by 1925, and was still there late enough to miss the start of The Mirimar Disaster‘s set. Which was a shame, as I really like this lot. Clearly influenced by many of the more ‘intelligent’ metal bands like Neurosis, Isis and perhaps even Tool, you […]
Stormblast continues to surprise me, with it being always busy, now, with what appears to be an always growing number of regular visitors. So thanks as always to all that came down. Look out for something special being planned for a future Thursday, if I can pull it off!
