Stormzone to headline metal gig

Hard rockers Stormzone are set to headline a special metal gig at the Ulster Hall as part of Belfast Music Week, which kicks off on Monday.

The Belfast band will take to the stage along with Triggerman, Zombified and Skypilot on Friday 15 November.

The homecoming gig comes after the band released their third studio album Three Kings in September.

The video for the title track has received over 16,000 hits on YouTube in less than two months.

Stormzone have enjoyed massive radio airplay in the US and have recorded a special track, Coming Home, specifically for their American audience.

The metal band, which was originally formed in 2004 by vocalist John 'Harv' Harbinson, have toured festivals all over world.

Their 2010 album Death Dealer was co-produced by Neal Kay - the man famed for discovering Iron Maiden - and he's full of praise for their second album, Zero To Rage.

He's described it as "a righteous storm force of an album from Belfast's men of steel".

Belfast Music Week runs from 11-17 of November with a wide variety of events in some of Belfast's best venues - and some locations you may not expect.

The Waterfront Hall will host a celebration of poet Seamus Heaney led by the Ulster Orchestra and featuring, among others, Stephen Rea.

The Limelight will stage performances of some of Northern Ireland's most promising up and coming bands for the The Belfast Music Showcase.

The festival will also take in venues such as St Anne' Cathedral, Crumlin Road Gaol, Skainos, the Strand Arts Centre and the Longfellow Bar in east Belfast.

Belfast music legend Van Morrison will also perform at The Waterfront Hall on 15 November to celebrate his Freedom of the City award.
