May 26th, 2023

It was a pleasure to welcome back Steve Hobson (drums) & Ian Booth (guitars/vocals) of Haint and Fredy Moita (guitars/vocals) of Nomadus to the show. Steve contacted me a few weeks back in relation to a charity gig he was putting on raising much needed funds for cancer charities in Northern Ireland.
Haint had been off the live circuit since last November when Ian was diagnosed with Lymphoma. It was his diagnosis, as well as others that Steve knew who were battling, or in some cases had tragically lost a battle with cancer quite recently that spurred him on to raise funds in support of Cancer Focus, Belfast City Hospital Cancer Unit and Southern Hospice Trust. I talk to Ian about his own battle from the initial diagnosis of Lymphoma to where he is now which is thankfully cancer free, we get a few updates on what to expect on the day of the gig and Fredy gives us a few updates on what Nomadus have planned in the next few months. With a fantastic line up of top NI metal bands including Owlcrusher, Nomadus, Normadic Rituals and Drakonis as well as Ian returning on stage with Haint, it is building up to be one of the best gigs of the year.
