HRH AOR – Pwllheli, Hafan-Y-Mor 13/03/2015

Having unfortunately missed Psycho Kiss – who, by all accounts got the afternoon off to a suitably rambunctious start – Tainted Nation hit us up hard and heavy, with big riffs and even bigger melodies, coupled with great vocal harmonies, the latter led by frontman Pete Newdeck (pictured right), who exudes an easy confidence throughout their set. The rhythm section of bassist Pontus Egberg and drummer Mark Cross are provide the sort of concrete solid foundation you would expect from musicians of this calibre, underpinning an energetic, passionate and powerful performance. Greeks Kingdragon are the first band of the day to possess what we shall describe as “invisible keyboards syndrome”; but, this does not prevent them delivering […]

PlanetMosh’s favourite new kids on the block, StOp sToP have also been added to the event’s Sleaze stage. While it had been widely reported for several weeks that CrashDiet were not appearing, an official statement posted on the HRH Facebook page earlier today said: “Just to put some clarity to the recent rumours, CrashDiet will not be performing at HRH United or in the near future due to one of its band members being considerably ill. It’s a shame, as we were all up for it, but we are only human and sometimes these things happen, however once they are fit and back up and running, well get them back in.” A statement from the band added: “Its with a lot of regret that CrashDiet have had to cancel Hard Rock Hell United due to health issues with one of the band members. We apologise to anyone that has bought a ticket to see the band and hope that the band will be able to grace a future edition of the event so as to […]

Psycho Kiss – Bloodbath at the disco


“Bloodbath at the disco” is the second album from South Wales rock band Psycho Kiss. Like Triaxis (also from South Wales), they have a classic rock/metal sound, although whereas Triaxis are more classic metal, Psych Kiss are more classic hard rock. Like Triaxis they have a talented female singer with a great voice.

Like Triaxis they have a talented female singer with a great voice. It’s a very good album with no weak tracks on it, but “Why should I care” and “Warpaint” are probably my favourites as Helen Clarke really lets rip and impresses with that great voice. It’s a close thing though as there are so many great songs here all sounding great. I also particularly liked “Conspiracy whore” with its lyrics putting the boot into the conspiracy nuts who spread conspiracy theories without a shred of proof to support them. The production is good with the vocals sounding great, the guitars being loud and powerful but never overpowering the vocals, and a good solid sound from the drums and bass – it’s all nice and clear and powerful – just what you want. An excellent album – classic rock with great female vocals. This band deserve to be a lot bigger. Track listing: 1. Bloodbath at the disco 2. […]
