Thrash Metallers -Gama Bomb – Stereo Basement- Live Footage/Review.
Last weekend Irish THRASH metaller’s Gama Bomb smashed their way through a mini UK tour alongside road buddies, Divine Chaos and Shrapnel, throwing down shows in Manchester’s Satan’s Hollow, Glasgow’s Stereo and London’s Underworld, heading on wards to play the Gargantuan German open-air Wacken Festival, beginning Thursday 1st of August until Saturday 3rd.
Glasgow thrashers were super charged for the return of Gama Bomb with many avid followers returning to Stereo basement to mosh to Gama’s high octane, humorous, technically super-fast show. The band have crafted a very cool, idiosyncratic execution in their overall deliverance as they threw down insanely skilled, technical playing ability with tongue-n-cheek humour, belting out body hurtling songs from their current album, Speed Between The Lines, drawing on not taking themselves too seriously, but in the same breath blowing all the fishes out of the water with their unbelievable musicianship and vocal aptitude.
As a first time encounter with the band I was immediately sucked in by their individualism and all-inclusive fun approach, not to mention their effortless raw talent, and most certainly I would now call myself a fan. They have been described as a kind of Thrasher Judas priest, with those signature soaring vocal shrills.
Here at Gobo, the supremely talented, Darren Morier captured

Check out the first three songs of Gama Bomb’s set on the following Demon Dethchase YouTube Channel. Superbly captured by Will Ryan –
Also, check out Divine Chaos’s ferocious vocal approach with complex drumming, and melodic, technical musicianship. An extremely awesome band who most certainly pack a clean punch to the gut.
The GROOVE LADEN, Shrapnel threw down a top class set which propelled the crowd into a head spin with the bands radical changes in velocity and super charged, gravely vocal delivery. Many thanks to Will Ryan of Demon Dethchase for the footage. Please make sure to subscribe to his channel over on YouTube to keep attuned to more exciting metal band uploads.
In many senses, I am still discovering myself through the complex tapestry in which life continues to weave, gaining unique physical experience in order to aid the progression of my precious spirit, this will continue for the rest of my fated days and my understanding of who I am shall be determined through how I learn to react, act and adapt towards the circumstances I face. I do sincerely hope the span of this life is enough to fully come to terms with the potential of my unique existence, through deep-rooted understanding, compassion, and love, and that I may fully acknowledge the absolute full potential of my existence through the network of others.
Thus far the core of my being has learned through unique experience and individual perspective that I am most certainly a creative soul who takes solace in the truth & liberty of artistic expression. Freedom lays behind the eyes within the evocative realm of one's imagination, transforming originality through individual perspective, this is when my art becomes yours. Inspiring, motivating different modes of expression to overall influence and shape a better world, to help elevate to a higher consciousness. We are part of the great web of life and in this way each and every one of us are interconnected, to create a major shift in consciousness. We must wholeheartedly start to believe in what can be created for the greater good of this world, in my view it is most certainly the power of thought and intention which connect us, no matter how near or how far.
Being understood has always been of paramount importance to me, self-expression is something I have been aware of from a very young age. From my point of view, artistic expression has always been the most liberating and uniting mode. When I am not caught up in life's cogs I love to write poetry, short stories, and shoot photographs. I adore and feed off music, so I highly enjoy capturing the live music scene in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. I also enjoy writing for Uk Entertainments website, Louder than War, as well as run my own music blog www.Revel Rousers.org, Amalgamating my love of music, writing, as well as photographic expression (Music, Landscape, Street, Wedding), which gives me a great sense of creative release, therefore forging a strong sense of purpose in the way of documenting life's remarkable moments.
I find working with creatives within the music industry is wholly inspiring even though at times it can be quite challenging, after all, the greatest realizations and lessons learned are born out of challenges. I figured, seeing as I have a platform for my music reviews, interviews and photography I thought it would be time to create a platform for my creative writing and poetry.....It takes courage to expose oneself through the intimacy of poetry, However, that is how we truly unite and grow in compassion and understanding of each other's true essence.
I am a deep thinker, I understand the power of words and their meanings. I also understand how empowering artistic expression can be. There is a raw truth buried within each original idea combined with a power to help change the world. Artistic expression is forever transforming through interpretation, that is what I mean when I say "When My Art Becomes Yours"
My philosophy is to understand more, in order to love more.......
