side step for a minute (talking anout locality - and i know this seems off topic);
edinburgh is fucking INFURIATING for metal atm - the venue closed down. But there is undertones of it shining through, as it's a uni town plenty of places to play. With the right drive and motivation and if it's showcased properlly we could get a nice following going up here. Just needs promotion, and also not when other things are going on. Theres the edinburgh rock riot here: http://www.edinburghrockriot.com/
at the moment, a certain Jack Glass got racous applause when they showcased themselves a few months back
(and its 5 minutes away from me
) theres also a place in the cowgate called subway - severed played with his band there a few weeks back i beleive (best pm him though)
It can be done, just need to also need to be careful - alot of the younger bands here havent found 'their sound' which is a shame. Alot of them sound like trivium rip off's...
It's also somewhat depressing because we have had in the past slayer playing the playhouse - and certain small tattooed wee westie's [8D] will assure you that THEY had to do the travelling to gigs in the good old days [8D]
If you are interested in setting anything up - let the scottish boardies know! if its in glasgow perhaps we could get something going with the damnation crowd?
