Review: Slayer

Last night thrash metal giants Slayer brought death and destruction to Riverbend Music Center on their final world tour. This tour is historically significant to metal heads, as it brought Anthrax and Slayer together on the same stage again as they did in the “Clash of the Titans Tour” in the 1980s.

Review: Rock on the Range Review 2018

It is pure mayhem and chaos to attend an all American heavy metal music festival. Rock on the Range brings more than one hundred and twenty thousand metal heads over the course of three days to Mapfre Stadium in Columbus Ohio, and the result is one of the largest and most hectic parties in the entire country.

Review: Louder than Life

Last weekend Louder than Life proved to be one of the greatest hard rock music festivals in the country. This year’s lineup featured hard hitting bands such as Rob Zombie, Incubus, Prophets of Rage, Stone Sour, and the Prince of Darkness himself Ozzy Osbourne. This year’s festival was truly a special opportunity to see Ozzy Osborne, the man who invented Heavy Metal with his band Black Sabbath in 1970.

Review: MidPoint Music Festival

This past weekend, Midpoint Music Festival took place inside of the Taft Theatre and Masonic Center in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The venue change gave the festival a very different feeling compared to the outdoor location in Over the Rhine where Band of Horses headlined last year. The Taft Theatre / Masonic Center featured unique historical architecture that gave attendees a more refined experience and provided a centralized location for the many bands to showcase their music. Going to this festival gave me the feeling of a classy night out to the ballet or opera and exploring the different ball rooms was an adventure in its self.

Review: Ubahn Fest

This weekend was Ubahn Festival’s third year under the streets of Cincinnati with rap superstar headliners 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Gucci Mane. Steve Aoki brought an energetic cake-throwing DJ performance to a mixed crowd of EDM and hip-hop fans. Third time is charm for Ubahn Festival seeing as how this year was the most spectacular party yet.
