What’s Rockin’ December 2015

What's Rockin'

Blimey, it’s December already! Another year is nearly over, but it’s not a wrap quite yet…

Happy Birthday to:

  • Brad Delson, Linkin Park 1st December 1977
  • Dani Winter-Bates, Bury Tomorrow 3rd December 1986
  • Ozzy Osbourne, 3rd December 1948
  • Corey Taylor, Slipknot 8th December 1973
  • Brian Molko, Placebo 10th December 1972
  • Nikki Sixx, Mötley Crüe 11th December 1958
  • Amy Lee, Evanescence 13th December 1981
  • Alex Gaskarth, All Time Low 14th December 1987
  • Lemmy, Motörhead 24th December 1945
  • Tuomas Holopainen 25th December 1976
  • Lars Ulrich, Metallica 26th December 1963

Newly Discovered:

  • Bury Tomorrow – I mentioned these chaps quite recently, how had I not heard of them before? Better late than never, though, eh? And their screamo guy, Daniel Winter-Bates, what an impressive pair of lungs! My favourite track by them right now is An Honourable Reign, and they also do a kick ass cover of Evanescence‘s Bring Me To Life. They’re a credit to British metalcore!
  • Korpiklaani – I came across this awesome Finnish folk metal band recently and pretty much became an instant fan after hearing their new single Ämmänhauta, from their new album Noita. Their tunes are a robust, thigh slapping blend of harmonic melodies and metal, and for some reason they make you really want to consume large quantities of beer.

Gigs I’m going to this month:

  • Nightwish at Wembley Arena on 19th December
  • HIM at Nottingham Rock City on 27th December

Have a great December!
