Concert of rock/punk music

Napalm Death Concert in Prague

To speak about Napalmdeath as one of the most important bands of extreme music is like carrying coals to Newcastle. More than 25 years on the scene and still so much invention and unceasing verve when creating music – as a matter of fact only a little number or formations on the contemporary music scene can show off similarly. Meanwhile a quarter of century before, Napalmdeath were the very authors of musical genre grind-core, now they also play with styles like HC, punk, thrash, death, but the result is still the explosively strong performance with killing capacity of napalm itself.

AC/DC and Black Ice head to Prague

The Legends of Australian hard-rock worked on their new album for two years. It can be heard and felt; fifteen great songs from the workshop of Young brothers form the longest record in the history of AC/DC. And also one of the best, as renowned magazines acknowledges – the Rolling Stone speaks about it in superlatives only.

The name of the 15th studio album is a link on Young Brothers childhood in Scotland, when they often heard “beware of the black snow” from the radio. The image of black snow now perfectly fits in the image of tough boys from AC/DC, who do not take prisoners as they play.

The singer Brian Johnson and the guitarist Angus Young staid faithful to their faithful color, in clothing as well. 17th March 2009 their black snow is going to fall on Prague O2 Arena.

The Levellers come to Prague, are catchy on their new album

The English group return to their roots, they introduced their last record by a concert in the Czech republic as well. It is clear they, after years of struggling, found the lost effect and return in good health. They again open the music box with sharp rhythms, sing-along reference and in the political lyrics aim directly to the top places of the ‘rotten society’. Their new album Letters From The Underground returns to their 90’s roots, into the trash-folk madness and sharp social critique.

At the contemporary concerts won’t be just their successful news, but they surely like to play their older tracks from A Weapon Called the World or Levelling the Land. The band themselves and their office staff had been personally involved in fighting the legislation throughout the previous year, taking part in marches, organising fly postering campaigns and adverts in the mass media, setting up fund to which many bands contributed, and raising the awareness.

The Real McKenzies in Prague 2day

The Canadian Celtic-Punk group The Real McKenzies, well known to those who visit Summer Festivals come to Prague Rock Café to bring their great show again.

The Canadian group come to please the friends of vigorous Punk, especially the one who is partial to Celtic roots. The seven men group from Vancouver has been on the scene for seven years, since 1992, and inspired such groups as Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys. All the group members have Scottish roots so to include backpipes into the line-up is definitely not an uneasy shot for the world music genre.

Queen want to Rock the world in Prague

The music pact Queen + Paul Rodgers lasts and goes around the globe for the second time. Songs from the new album The Cosmos Rock and older hits they they want to rock if not the universe, so at least the fans in O2 Arena in Prague. The concert starts on Friday 31st October at 20:00.

To join the half of Queen (guitarist Brian May and a drummer Roger Taylor, the bass-guitarist Jophn Deacon refused to participate on the comeback) with the singer Paul Rodgers, two words collapsed. The shining theatre of Queen with earthy Blues-rock of Paul Rodgers appealed somehow unfit for some fans, for the others it was somehow more honest, than if the rest of Queen only found Freddie’s doubler and acted like nothing happened.

Not many people expected this would work for more than one tour. But it happened and in September a new studio album called The Cosmos Rock was published.

The Real McKenzies in Prague

Although the Real McKenzies are a punk group from Canadian Vancouver, they are strongly rooted in their Scottish heritage. The music of these ‘new-age Celtic singers’ is possible to define like a fusion of Sex Pistols and Scottish folk legend Robbie Burns.

The founding member of the group – front man Paul McKenzie, who formed the group in 1994, says his motivation for Scottish group is: “… when I was young, my parents used to dress me up in a kilt and made me dance and sing traditional Scottish music. To make a Scottish punk group is my way of paying back.’

The Real Mckenzies have vagrancy in their hearts. They are filled by greedy appetite for punk show and Scottish whiskey, they still develop their style to present it to millions of fans. Their newest enterprise, the ‘Of the Leash’ album embodies the spirit of wild energy and cheer.

Black Box Revelation in Prague

In their music, there is an echo of Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones or The Stoogers and even when in the golden times of garage rock even their parents weren’t alive, their records are devoted to the style and sharp. They are similar to The White Stripes in the respect they manage solely with the guitar and drums.

Dropkick Murphys in Prague Roxy

Dropkick Murphys are a Celtic punk band formed in Quincy, Massachusetts, USA. They blended traditional Irish music, Oi!, and punk. Their influences include Stiff Little Fingers, The Pogues, The Clash, Thin Lizzy, The Dubliners, and the Swingin’ Utters.

The band has made a name for itself and built a following as a result of their non stop touring all over the world and their famous St. Patrick’s Day weekend shows, which are held in Boston. Dropkick Murphys also support unions and some of their songs reflect this.

Dropkick Murphys come out swinging with their 6th studio album “The Meanest Of Times” a collection of tales about family, loyalty and remembering where you came from. “The Meanest Of Times” contains all the best elements of the DKM sound: a complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock’n‘roll, this album puts the band’s diversity, intensity and sincerity on full display.

“We always wanted to be that band that didn’t forget where it came from and we keep it in the forefront of our minds that we’re all in it together, audience and band members, as one, no one better than the other. That’s the M.O. of a lot of punk bands, but I think sometimes it gets lost the minute a band has any kind of success. We never want to let it go to our heads. We know how lucky we are to be doing this. It’s because of the people that listen to the band’s music we have this opportunity to see the world. I don’t care if we’re playing to 10 people or 10,000 people, those kids that are up front singing our songs are the reason we’re doing this.

And you can come to suport them to Prague Roxy on 12.08.2008, tickets for 150 czk.
