Cellar Bar, Blackburn Saturday 25th May 2008

It was over to Blackburn's Cellar Bar on Saturday night for a little bit of metal with Voodoo Six and the legendary Blaze Bayley. It was all very festival like with the show being held in the courtyard of this Georgian building.

A couple of local crowd pleasers I.C.On and Nightmare Visions warmed the audience up in time for Voodoo Six to take the stage by storm and launch into a tirade of their fast becoming greatest hits, 'No Friend Of Mine', 'Faith' and 'Feed My Soul'.

All this followed by another weighty number, 'Shine On' and it's pretty obvious that this group know what they are doing, where they are going and they deserve every single drop of success that may be headed their way with thumping numbers like the ones they are banging out to date.

The lads work well together on stage with a golden performance from their able front man Henry Rundell plus Tony's bass and big smile - it's fast becoming legendary boys! So it all looks pretty good for the lads and sounds pretty good too.

If you have not seen this band live yet then what the hell are you playing at? Get a ticket to see them now…I mean it!!

So by now we're ready for Blaze Bayley and however good you hope he'll be he always turns out to be better than just good. Arriving on stage in high spirits and splattering the audience with an abundance of brilliance, 'Futureal', 'Tenth Dimension', 'Alive', 'Ten Seconds' every one - bullseye!!!

And the metal mirth wasn't just reliant on rampant rock but it's never truly metal until someone climbs the speakers which is exactly what Blaze did in another ace, 'Kill and Destroy' and by the end of this there was a nice little mosh pit going too!

'Stare at the Sun', 'Lord of the Flies', 'Leap of Faith' all sounding as good as ever from this band who are clearly at ease with one another and making it all sound amazing.
Also playing the title track from the new album due out on July 7th, 'The Man Who Would Not Die' and with 'Born as a Stranger' and ending with 'Man on the Edge' what more can we ask for from Blaze and the boys on a Saturday night?

The Cellar Bar crowd were over the moon. Who said Saturday night is the loneliest night of the week.
