Bonafide + Bad Touch, Steelhouse, Ebbw Vale, 14/03/14

Good to see club nights back up and running at the Steelhouse, based at Ebbw Vale Rugby Club. Following their successful appearance back in November 2012, Swedish hard rockers were asked back as part of their 15 date UK tour and didn't disappoint.

First up were Bad Touch with a sound based upon the current rock fashion of Led Zep baselines and heavy blues riffs.

Just after 10pm, on came the main act, fronted the talented guitarist vocalist Pontus Snibb, and delivered another set of heavy riffing numbers with a style rooted in AC/DC, Quo and Krokus.

The set list included crowd favourites Nice Boys Don't Play Rock'n'Roll and Fill Your Head With Rock.

The band travel the UK this month and play at the HRH AOR festival at Pwllelli next weekend followed by a return to Hard Rock Hell 8 at the same venue in November, which I am much looking forward to attending.
