    Concerts: Warrior Soul, The Swamp Born Assassins; Glasgow Audio 26th March 2018
    Concert Reviews Warrior Soul were the band who nearly made it. They opened for Metallica when they were at the peak of their powers, while making enough attitude soaked headlines to garner interest from beyond the usual rock n’ roll circles. And yet, like so many others, they allowed all of that to come undone through inter band wrangling, that thing called grunge (even though they were more political and current than any plaid shirt) and, if you believe the bullshit, rock star aspirations. Hence, tonight they were promoting a new album, Back On The Lash, in the Audio, one of Glasgow’s more compact venues. Alongside them were fast rising local heroes The Swamp Born Assassins, who not only opened the show, but appeared to pull in a sizeable portion of the crowd. Sea of Tranquility’s Steven Reid was amongst their number.

    Gandalf's Fist front man, Dean Marsh, commented: "We're sure there's still a large horde of people out there that have yet to experience the world of "The Clockwork Fable", and perhaps there are even those that are somewhat cautious of the notion of a triple album with this promotion we're removing that risk we're keen for everyone to be able to experience, what we truly believe, is a unique and timeless concept album"
