November Rocks!

2011 has been a great year for me as far as female fronted metal is concerned.  In March I went to see Epica and ReVamp and in April I saw Delain.  Pretty awesome enough I am sure you will agree?  

This week however is femet-heaven.  Friday night was spent watching Lacuna Coil blow the roof off Corporation here in Sheffield.  Lacuna Coil were the first metal band I went to see live - not that long ago - back in January 2010.  Here is my very first gig review from that night.  Last Friday was as anticipated fantastic.  They played lots of older stuff with a selection of the new tracks and I am so looking forward to the new album release on my birthday next January! 

Someone kindly recorded some of the set and posted it to YouTube so for your listening pleasure here is the beautiful Enjoy The Silence sung by the amazing Lacuna Coil. Although you can't see us we were having a romantic cuddle somewhere in the middle of that awesome group of Sheffield Coilers!! :D

Then on Wednesday night we will be heading to Manchester Academy for the long awaited Within Temptation UK tour - supported by non-other than Agua De Annique - I can just imagine how amazing this will be!

This gig has been a long time coming, but I am glad we've had to wait so long.  It's given the album time to really grow on me.  When I first heard it I wasn't overly bothered.  I thought it was a perfectly good album, but no where near as exciting as the hype had lead me to believe.  Now it's a firm favourite on the iPod and I can't wait to see it performed live.

This week has been awesome so far as gigs are concerned, and this does continue through the month of November.  Somehow we have managed to also be seeing Devin Townsend performing acoustically at Corporation next week and then seeing Northern Oak on their Great Exhibition Tour at the end of the month.  I am one happy little bunny right now!
