ConcertsThe Treatment + Cage The Gods + Sinners Highway @ Nottingham UK 02/04/14

Heavy Metal A nice midweek triple whammy of up and coming talent to entertain and blow away the black clouds of the UK's atrocious weather was just what the Doctor ordered. Proving that this side of the Atlantic is producing some very special live talent that needs embracing to ensure its survival.

First up were local band Sinners Highway who have supported The Treatment previously and impressed me immensely on that outing. This time was no different, Si Ross is an extremely talented vocalist. Belting out their Hard Rock meets slightly Alternative vibe with the confidence of a seasoned frontman. Sinners Highway are a band that need nurturing by the right individuals if they are to progress forward in the cut-throat music business. From this performance with the dual guitar and soaring bridges and melodies I've no doubt that there's someone somewhere waiting with their cheque book in hand to sign them up.

Causing quite the buzz at the moment within the UK Rock scene are Cage The Gods and from tonight's set I can see why. With their massive soundscapes and precise interchanges between classic and hard rock the potential audience reach is massive. Peter Comerford handles the rhythm guitar and lead vocals admirably and with a twin Gibson attack you know exactly the style they're going for. With the crowd warming to their energetic set they ensure that winning over new fans will be no problem. Cage The Gods are a force to be reckoned with, I'm sure with their debut album on the verge of release we'll be seeing and hearing a lot more from these riff masters.

Latest album Running with The Dogs was released just the day before, so The Treatment are obviously excited to gauge the audience reaction to songs from their second outing. Having been through a few image experiments they've finally found something comfortable that suits them well. However its the music that is left to do all the talking and if you want raw Rock delivered with the energy of a Duracell bunny then The Treatment are your band. Matt Jones has a delicate raw rasp to his voice and delivers live with stunning results. Tonight could be Wembley arena with the guys covering every inch of the sparse stage, harking back to days when Def Leppard were good their High 'N Dry meets AC/DC concoction is given a new vibrant lease of life. A 100mph set with what seems like 100 songs the set comes to an end all too quickly, inviting the crowd onto the stage for their last number requires no second invite and the band are soon engulfed by fans heading stage wards. The Treatment are a young British band ensuring that the Uk Rock scene is in safe hands, Ok, so it may not be groundbreaking but when its delivered with this much style, class and enthusiasm you can't help but relive the glory days of rock. Tonight The Treatment proved that Poison got it spot on, its is Nothin' But A Good Time and a good time is exactly what we got!
