Glasgowbury 2010 - Stand Up Guy
Tweet: Spurs of Rock tent goes hardcore...
With an awfully quiet crowd greeting them, Stand Up Guy promise to blow the cobwebs off of the timid bunch. And that they did! From the first bloodcurdling note, the cobwebs disintegrate and the crowd loosen up rightly. Hellacious throat growling and seismic riffage are delivered with a menacing furrow. It just reminds us why this band are such an enduring force on the Northern Ireland metal scene.
Things often delve into terrifying doom metal territory, which is perfect when you're a metal head like myself. Stand Up Guy proves metal still has so much life in it yet.
Slip, Sliding Down the Slopes:
When the guitars start howling, synths immediately run for cover, thus rendering the keyboards a bit irrelevant.
