Concert Review [ 34 ]

TRIVIUM – concert review by Don S.

TRIVIUM – concert review by Don S.

It now was the third time in my metal-life that I saw TRIVIUM playing live on stage (Germany, Filharmonie). First time I saw the boys from Orlando / Florida somewhere early in the 2000-years, when they were young as a band and hardly known … and I didn’t like them too much.

Metal Life review of Metal Alliance Tour 2013 show in San Diego, CA

Metal Life Magazine attended the San Diego, CA show of the Metal Alliance Tour 2013 at the San Diego House of Blues on March 22nd. Holy Grail opened things up and got the crowd going. Their half hour set was enough to make sure that the San Diego House of Blues was awake and ready for a night of metal. Next up was Municipal Waste with their Nuclear Assault style thrash metal. The pit really got moving as more late […]
