The R.O.C.K – The R.O.C.K (Album Review)

The Serbs are attacking! No, nothing here about politics. I mean a full, frontal assault on our ears! Hailing from Belgrade, Serbia, The R.O.C.K are attempting to blend together the greatest sounds of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal from the ’70s, ’80s, and even the ’90s. Containing strong vocals, and a double assault of guitars, […]

TARJA – In the Raw (Album Review)

Symphonic Metal has slowly gained popularity in the North American market. Yes, we had Evanescence, but for many parts around the world there was Nightwish who made their mark in the symphonic genre with their first release in 1997. From there Nightwish has gone on to be the biggest Symphonic Metal band in the world. […]

SINNER – Santa Muerte (Album Review)

After my discovery of Sinner thanks to 2013’s Touch Of Sin 2 record, I’ve counted them among bucket list live bands. That release featured re-records of classic Sinner material from the early days of the back catalog as those albums are long out of print. Oh yeah, for those unaware as I was until 2013, […]

SISTER SWITCHBLADE – Tales and Taboos (Album Review)

A ways back now, in August 2017, I received a surprise package in the mailbox. It was a promo CD sent for review…and it was awesome! I speak of the debut album Best Served Cold from Australia’s Sister Switchblade. The band arose from the ashes of vocalist Andy Smith‘s former outfit, BabyJane. A great album […]

H.E.A.T – Live At Sweden Rock Festival (Album Review)

When you think of live albums, many think of the usual staples…KISS Alive, the Budokan shows of many other bands, maybe even Frampton Comes Alive from 1976 comes to mind. How many of you thought of the recording from Sweden Rock Festival from June 2018? Not many huh! Well, I’m here to change your way […]

GLASYA – Heaven’s Demise (Album Review)

With my interest in Symphonic Metal, I was asked to review this new band from Lisboa, Portugal on Pride & Joy Music record label. Currently, there is no website for Glasya, but thankfully all their information is on Facebook and the record label’s website. Taken from the official facebook page: “Glasya, a Symphonic Metal band […]

BLACK STAR RIDERS – Another State Of Grace (Album Review)

Have you ever really truly enjoyed a band, and for some reason, the fact that they have a new album due very soon just escape your knowledge? Well, this has just happened to me. However, it’s still nice to get that old feeling of when you walk into a record store and find that new […]

STONE RISING – Stone Rising (Album Review)

A friend gives you a CD and says “check out my new band”. Always unsure what to expect when you have a personal relationship with a band. A little nerve-wracking to be honest. I mean what if I hate the album? How do you tell them that? I’d never lie in a review, I just […]

THE NEW ROSES – Nothing But Wild (Album Review)

The story I am about to spill onto you is about a band called The New Roses. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean anything about GnR, but I could see how they could be hailed as such. The albums this band has released are straight ahead, in your face rock n roll. These […]

STARGAZER – The Sky Is The Limit (Album Review)

Absolute melodic hard rock perfection. Have I got your attention? Yes, you heard me correctly. This is a true gem of a melodic hard rock album. Stargazer is a Norwegian hard rock/metal band consisting of Tore André Helgemo on vocals and guitars, William Ernstsen ripping on his guitar, BP Hovik slamming the drums, and Erik […]
