Placebo, again? Well if you remembered the last time I reviewed Placebo in Birmingham I said they were very good live, so when my Dad got a couple of tickets for Christmas I wasn’t going to pass up seeing them again. At this point it’s become harder for them to impress me which they’ve already done in the past, but was it still a good show?

When one of my mates told me he was seeing Enter Shikari play at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall I was excited to find out that it was on my Birthday as well. So I decided “What the Hell” get myself a ticket for a Birthday treat, as I remembered seeing Enter Shikari at Download 2013 and enjoying them there. They recently released a new album this year ‘The Mindsweep’. So how was the event?

As you may know by now Avenged Sevenfold are headlining Download Festival this year, which is awesome. So in honour of the occasion I thought I’d review an Avenged Sevenfold album. I already talked about their Hail to the King album, but now I’m looking at what a lot of fans and critics consider their best album yet, City of Evil, released in 2005. So the big question is how does this album hold up?

If I was to ask you about the band Placebo your initial reactions would either be “Who are Placebo” or “Placebo, good stuff”. Whilst not the most famous band who everybody knows about most people who do know about them seem to like them. First formed in 1996 they’ve been going for almost 20 years and whilst the time gap between album releases and touring is bigger than usual their live shows make it worth it. On December 12th me and my Dad went to see them at the O2 Academy in Brum.

When I heard Avenged Sevenfold were touring the UK I was excited. The last time they were over here was at Download 2011 when they opened for System of a Down. Now with the release of their number 1 album Hail to the King they did a whole European tour which ended in Birmingham, the one I went to see with Jimmy and his Dad.
