HIGH SPIRITS – Hard to Stop (Album Review)

Hard Work High Spirits’ creator Chris Black has got to be up there as one of the hardest working people in rock or metal.  He seems to have boundless energy and a talent to match. As the only person involved in the whole recording project he plays all the instruments, sings, produces, engineers and everything […]

THE MIDNIGHT DEVILS – Something Bigger (Album Review)

Blueprint To bastardize a classic Slade track, “Pleeze me, Sleeze Me” is to describe perfectly what The Midnight Devils have laid out before us. The self-released Something Bigger follows the classic blueprint of the sleaze rock genre. The Midnight Devils are from Omaha, NE and comprise of Sniper on lead guitar, Sam Spade on bass […]

TOLEDO STEEL – The First Strike of Steel (The Early Years)(Album Review)

New Wave TOLEDO STEEL play traditional metal in a traditional style with great results. Whilst the band themselves describe their music as New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal there is more than a whiff of New Wave of British Heavy Metal and in particular the influence of Iron Maiden. Hailing from that well-known hotbed of […]

TOKYO BLADE – Dark Revolution (Album Review)

T-shirt Tokyo Blade have been there, done that, and bought many a t-shirt in the 40-odd years they’ve been in existence. In true metal style, they’ve been through band members like a dose of salts but in recent times the line-up has become settled with members returning who were there in the early 80s and […]

BLACK SABBATH – Heaven and Hell (Retro Album Review)

Blaster 1980 was an absolute blaster of a year for the release of classic rock albums. We had AC/DC’s Back in Black, Ace of Spades by Motorhead, Rush’s Permanent  Waves and British Steel by Judas Priest to name but a few. It is, then, a testament to Black Sabbath that their own Heaven and Hell […]

I reviewed it at the time for Decibel Geek so head over there if you need a refresher. Now, in relatively super-quick fashion, they are back with Forced Commandments, due out May 22 on […]

THE JOY OF SIX BroFest is an irregular occasional heavy metal festival that takes place over two days in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in the north of England. This year, its sixth, the venue was once again a hall deep in the bowels of the city’s university, although a different, smaller one to the last festival which was […]

MINDLESS SINNER – Poltergeist (Album Review)

Feeling It must be a great feeling playing the music you love with people you love for 40 years, but that exactly what the guys of Mindless Sinner have done. Apart from a personnel change way back in 1982 it has been the same line-up, which must be applauded and appreciated. In fact, they’ve had […]

STARMEN – Welcome to My World (Album Review)

Mystery As far as gimmicks go the “mystery band” image is not a new phenomenon. Of course, we had KISS in the early 70s but I daresay there were many more before them. Which brings me to Swedish melodic rock act Starmen. Their take on the look is to have each member’s face painted with […]
