British metal band Fury UK has been confirmed to play Hammerfest II at Pontins Holiday Village, Prestatyn, North Wales.
During the past 2 years the band has played Bloodstock Open Air, Hellfire Fest, Bulldog Bash, Rock Of Ages, SOS Festival & more. Lead vocalist/guitarist Chris Appleton says “We’ve just completed our gig commitments for 2009 & the final gig in Manchester was a real celebration of a happy year for the band, when we’ve toured & played with some great names such as Blaze Bayley, Michael Schenker, Saxon, UFO &, Motorhead, as well as playing international dates in Greece & Switzerland & releasing our best music so far with the album “VR”. We’re looking for more of the same in 2010 & it’s a great boost to straight away be confirmed for an event such as Hammerfest”.
Fury UK plays the Saturday at Hammerfest, that’s March 13th.

“VR” album reviews….
Kerrang magazine “..a commendable charge, standing up very well against the likes of White Wizzard & Cauldron.. pumping, ever-propulsive guitar riffs.. full-blooded vocals.. dynamic hooks.. aren’t going to be understood by Elliott Minor fans.. grimaced chants & guitar theatrics will win over the metal community in a trice”
Powerplay magazine “..storming album full of inventive, melodic metal.. at times intricate, dense, delicate & crushing.. reminds me of Priest & Maiden.. excellent piece of work.. powerful, heavy, accessible, modern metal.”
Get Ready To Rock “….excellent production and playing …. the music is compelling with some proggy and unexpected touches in places, and there is the energy of a nascent Megadeth …. an excellent album”
I stumbled up on the following video clip from Danko Jones yesterday. This is another rockin’ tune, that is on the B-Sides album that came out last January.
Check it out!
When I think of Australia, I think of bands like AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and Airbourne. I would never expect a decent glam metal act to come out of Oz Imagine my surprise when I heard the debut CD, Never Say Die from Hansel. I have known about Hansel for quite a while. I checked out their Mission to Rock EP, and I liked a couple songs off of it. I was quite surprised to find that this new CD is overwhelmingly good. Never Say Die is easily a contender for the best of 2010.
Never Say Die is packed with infectious rockers. In fact, the pace only slows down for “Between A Rock and a Hard Place”. This is the CD’s lone ballad, and it has a cool Poison like feel to it.
Some of my favorites include “Rock City”, “Rocketship of Love”,”1-800-Pleasuretown” and “Murder 101”. “Murder 101” was carried over from the Mission To Rock EP, and rightfully so. This is an extremely catchy song, and needs to be heard by everyone.
Hair metal fans looking for some cool new music to check out, look no further. Hansel’s Never Say Die delivers the goods. Fans of bands like Poison, Wig Wam & Steel Panther will eat this up!
