Welcome back to the Rockcast!!

We fly to Russia. We hang around Essex to discover the talent NOT the stereotypical idiots that downgrade the county thanks to brainless television. We go back to Bristol to visit some old friends. I discover an old favorite in the world of death metal. For the first time, I play a band I wish to find out why they disappeared after meeting up in Camden Town years ago…oh and a few characters from an obscure children’s television that I’m the only person that remembers!
Oh and our good friends at Boardwalk Isabella sent a brand new Spoken intro!
Let’s check out the playlist!

Death Valley Knights – Tongue of Fire
Scarred by Name -Kick You When You’re Down (Special request from myself to discover the whereabouts of the band today!)
Crescent – Stand Up
Ten Masked Men – Eye of the Tiger
Edgecrusher – Just Some Grief
Forged in Black – Accusations of the Innocent
Blackwolf – Keep Moving On
Voodoo Six – Take the Blame

As I never mentioned it, I will be attending 2 festivals.
First being The Metal Gods Festival in Mansfield on 31st May and the second the Rock and Metal Circus on 12th, 13th and 14th September in Northampton. More details to follow in future Rockcasts!

Thanks a lot for listening as always!
Any MP3s, album donations, spoken intros or got a MUSIC INTRO to replace the Terminator style intros or anything else, send them to

See you next week for a new Rockcast and Playlist!

Greetings Fanatics!
Welcome once again to the Rock Fanatic Rockcast, a place where I find the next big thing and help all bands achieve their goal of playing at Download, Sonisphere and Bloodstock.
I am armed with Cadbury Chomps and even Foam Shrimps and bananas.
In this playlist, we have a thrash metal band that’s not signed, we have Iron Maiden influenced bands, Switzerland’s answer to Alter Bridge, bands that Dan Fila of Varga has recommended and for the first time, a genre I’ve hardly touched; Rap Rock.
Let’s check out the playlist!

Lich King - Act of War
Sun Gods in Exile – Hammer Down
Ashes of Ares - This Is My Hell
N2H4  – Hydrazine
Khaøs – Distress Signal
The Worshyp - Diabolic
