Catch-Up Reviews #1: Chance The Rapper, Daft Punk, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Kylesa…

So, this is going to be (yet another) segment for RichReviewz. Out of running late with time with work, gigs and other business it seems this is the best way to keep up with reviews I plan to do. In an ideal world, I would do full length reviews of each of these reviews, but now it would set me back even further as more and more are released now. So, I’d rather do something small than miss out at all, so here goes the first “Catch-Up Reviews”! Continue reading

Immortal Technique Live Review (The Globe, Cardiff. 18/6/13)

So, first of all, this is going to be more of a ‘report’ than an actual review. Why? Because I literally turned up to this gig without listening to any Immortal Technique albums, none but one song that I was familiar with and that it was my first pure live hip-hop experience (Death Grips felt a whole lot more like being in an Every Time I Die gig). If you’re asking “Why the hell did you turn up then?!”, my younger brother is a big Immortal Technique fan and while the opportunity was there, I thought what better way to take him to his first live performance than to see one of his favourite artists.

So while you’re reading this, remember: I was not an Immortal Technique fan walking into the venue. Continue reading

Feastem / Oblivionized Live Review (Le Pub, Newport. 13/6/13)

Wales is lucky to be graced with great gigs with most bands settling for Bristol as the most Western point of a UK tour; however (and luckily) this wasn’t the case for the Feastem/Oblivionized UK tour. Feastem, travelling all the way from Finland, and Oblivionized from London set Newport’s loveable Le Pub as their Welsh date and ended up being well worth the travel from South-West Wales, despite travelling/accommodation expenses being 12x the £5 door price!

Dragged Into Sunlight Live Review/Interview

So I had the opportunity to catch Dragged Into Sunlight and Bossk on their UK tour in London, and interview T of DIS before the gig. Check out my review of the live performances and the interview – T had some very interesting things to say.

Ghostface Killah – “TWELVE REASONS TO DIE” Quick Review

Ghostface Killah - 12 Reasons To Die

Ghostface Killah – “Twelve Reasons To Die”
Genre: Hip-hop

Label: Soul Temple Records

This feels like one of those cases that laying down an introduction to Ghostface Killah is pointless – if the name doesn’t ring a bell at all with you, then you’ve probably been walking around with your eyes (and ears) closed. One of the more prominent Wu-Tang Clan members, one of the more successful solo successes of Wu-Tang and perhaps one of the best storytellers in hip-hop period. If you’ve never heard “Supreme Clientele” or “Ironman”, please give those a listen before reading on. Continue reading

A quick update…

So, that giveaway competition I held is now OVER. FINITE. NO MORE. The winner was Craig Rees, and so he’ll get his prizes soon. Thanks to everyone who took part and spread the word of Rich Reviewz!

Also, I now have a facebook page set up, so if it’s easier and more convenient, you can follow the reviews on there, as well as keeping up-to-date on news in the music world. Check it out here!

My review of Ghostface Killah’s “12 Reasons To Die” will be up tomorrow. This blog is going to get regular again.
