Feradur – Legion (S/R)

One doesn’t often hear tales of the Luxembourg metal scene, so pull up a sandbag and I’ll spin you a yarn. Formed in 2010, Feradur released debut album “Epimetheus” in 2015 before ditching their vocalist and recruiting their producer on… Continue Reading →

Anthrax – Den Atelier, Luxembourg 09/06/16

Thanks to the advertised start time of 9:30 for tonight’s gig, I arrived too late to catch local talent Scarlet Anger (their sophomore album reviewed here some time back). On the bright side, this obviously meant that there wasn’t much… Continue Reading →

Scarlet Anger – Freak Show (MIG Music)

Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe and has some good ties to Ave Noctum thanks to our European based reviewer. So at first I wondered why he hadn’t picked them up but remembering he prefers the blackened… Continue Reading →

Cradle Of Filth, Ne Obliviscaris – Den Atelier, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, 25/11/15

It’s been just a year since Cradle Of Filth last hit this venue, that time with Behemoth and Inquisition. Their performance that night – which included numerous old gems such as ‘Haunted Shores’ and ‘Beneath the Howling Stars’ – got… Continue Reading →

Motörhead, Rockhal Box, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg 23/06/15

After the experience of last week’s Judas Priest gig, I’d be lying if I said I had any confidence that tonight’s crowd would be any better. But from the get-go, there was a tangible air of excitement among the masses… Continue Reading →

Judas Priest, Rockhal Box, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg (16/06/15)

The return of Judas Priest to Luxembourg was, as you might expect, an exciting prospect. Once their support act – who on the night proved even more redundant than expected – was announced, that excitement dissipated somewhat. Still, Judas Priest… Continue Reading →

At The Gates, Rockhal Club, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg, 06/06/15

Of course, it’s not every day that you get to see At The Gates, and personally, I doubted if I would ever have the privilege. Thankfully the stars aligned though and some miracle brought them right to my door step… Continue Reading →

Die Antwoord – Rockhal Box, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg 25/01/15

Die Antwoord are the South African Zef (see wikipedia) collective whose obscure videos, lyrics and image have elevated them way beyond the status of being considered just a rap/electro entity. My first encounter with their darkly humorous world of grime… Continue Reading →

Airbourne – Rockhal, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg 17/07/14

Ah, the return of Airbourne. In a little over four years they’ve hit this particular venue as many times. The last time I caught them was the second of these occasions in late 2010 on the ‘No Guts, No Glory’… Continue Reading →

Hail Of Bullets, Ichor, Desdemonia, Trier Exhaus, 06/03/14

A gig at an inconvenient point of the week. What are you gonna do: not go and forever hold your grudge or make the effort and exacerbate the misery of your looming day at work? In the case of HOB… Continue Reading →

Napalm Death & Blockheads – Kulturfabrik, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg, 03/07/13

This was one of those gigs that I was leaving as a last minute decision whether to go or not. Picking up ‘Utilitarian’ belatedly a few weeks back drew me towards going to see Napalm Death, while a week of… Continue Reading →

Fear Factory, The Devin Townsend Project, Kulturfabrik, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg, 30/10/12

What are the chances of that? No good metal gig around this neck of the woods for months and then two within days of each other: first Down, now Fear Factory. Although FF’s height of popularity was quite a while… Continue Reading →
