Grimm Up North Fest – Bury
The old guard of NWOBHM was once again represented, this time by Weapon UK with the charm and wit of frontman Danny Hynes and the permanent smile of guitarist Jeff Summers still there. Kicking off with the frantic blink and you’ll miss it of the classics ‘Set The Stage Alight’, followed by the heavy blues and catchy choruses of ‘Ride The Mariah’. Other highlights were the drum driven sleazy rock of ‘Warrior’, pounded out by Darren Lee, the speaker blowing main riff of ‘Wonderland’, the bona fide headbanger of ‘Bloodsoaked Rock‘, the barroom grooves of ‘Bad Reputation’ but pick of the bunch was a truly awesome cover of ‘The Rocker’with bassist Tony Forsythe laying down a rock solid backing as Jeff riffed and soloed.
