    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative Tuesday 19 August 2014


    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.




    If you ever came across the explosive sound of Davila 666, you’ll love A.J. Davila’s new album ‘Terror Amor’. He formerly of that band has released one of the best albums of 2014 thus far.


    The enduring Opeth are back with a new album. ‘Pale Communion’ is definitely one of their best. They know exactly when to crank things up, and slow things down. The Swedish titans take another step forward in their quest for the perfect combination of Prog Rock, Classic Rock, and Metal.


    JJ are also from Sweden, but that’s about all they have in common with Opeth! The word ‘mysterious’ seems to be following them around quite a bit purely because they were low key about their identity. They have thrown all sorts of sounds into their third album ‘V’, which takes you into their world – a fascinating adventure.
