Blue Origin and Fahran at The Roadhouse, Birmingham

Led by the multi-talented Nick Pilgrim on vocals, Blue Origin truly rocked The Roadhouse last night. Tom gave his best ‘animalesque’ performance on the drums, as usual, accompanied by Mike on guitar, the new guitarist Josh, a welcome addition to the band and Danny on bass.  The band chemistry gets stronger every time I see them and they get heavier each time.

Playing a combo of material from the debut album ‘Somnium’, Blue Origin have well and truly sealed their identity as a hard rocking, hard-working band, willing to go the extra distance and create more and more on every performance, improving on quality each time. 

Blue Origin are a band who genuinely care about what they do and are a prime example of the great things that can and do come from the underground scene.  Always taking things up a notch, their material grows consistently more sophisticated every time. Just a shame about the senseless heckler, who attempted to sabotage proceedings by shouting all the way through their set, but I’m pleased to say that the band succeeded in drowning out his incoherent ramblings with their awesome brand of metal.  Quite simply, Blue Origin are a band to watch and are headed right for the top.  Check them and their debut album ‘Somnium’ out on .

Fahran completely blew me away with the first listen! Frankly, there aren’t words to describe the sheer magnitude of their performance.  This was just total metal force with all the trimmings, including an encore, which the audience refused to let them leave without playing. A top-notch high class metal band, for all true metal aficionados to try out and be metallicized by. We’re talking full-blown rocket up your arse type metal here!   Hook laden riffs, vocals to die for, not to mention a drummer embodying John Bonham the second!!!   This has to be seen to be believed! Love them!   Check out their debut self titled album and go see them live now. .
