Best Gig of 2018
C.O.C. at Dolans in Limerick – not only a fantastic gig, but courtesy of promoters Bad Reputation, who go from strength to strength by dint of their hard work, dedication and strong local support, I didn’t have to travel to Dublin to see them.
Most Anticipated Album(s) of 2019
A new album from Venom Inc.
My 2018 in Metal
I feel the Irish metal scene is stronger than ever and I see it growing more so.
Looking Forward To in 2019
In 2019 I would simply like to see more people supporting the music we love.
Metal Person of the Year
Laura Wiebe, best editor I’ve ever had, and a decent human being to boot who actually answers her mail, a rarity in this day-and-age.
