VICE – 3 Fingers Up (Album Review)

Sometimes there are bands that just for some reason never hit the elite mainstream but can resonate with you like the rest. Vice is one of those bands for me. Now, there are numerous bands with the same name. Please don’t get confused. I too had to fix my iTunes library because of the confusion. […]

SPREAD EAGLE – Subway To The Stars (Album Review)

Many times, listening to as much music as I do, a name from the past comes up. No, I am not rediscovering new music, (even though I do love doing that from time to time) but a name from the past comes back into the limelight, so to speak. A band reforms and decides to […]

VOLTURE – On The Edge (Album Review)

Not too long ago CGCM Podcast regular listener and past podcast guest Jason Kearney posted on the CGCM Facebook page. Recently visiting a record shop near his home, Jason picked up a vinyl release from a band called VOLTURE. He posted photos of the cover in the CGCM Group Page and suggested that it was […]

MURDERBIRD – Pillars of Creation (Album Review)

Sometimes you find yourself, almost subconsciously, returning to an album over and over again. I call that a sleeper. You spin it the first time, knowing nothing prior to that. It finds its way onto your phone for mobile listening and is seen to while away bus travel hours more often than expected. Then a […]

SIN SAVAGE – Lost In The Dark (EP Review)

Let me tell you about a new band that I have discovered. Sin Savage (formerly known as Nightmare BE), is a group from Belgium with a new EP entitled Lost In The Dark.  I read that this album was a good combination of hard and heavy riffs, mixed with some great writing, and some fantastic […]

BULLET – Live (Album Review)

Bullet is a straight-ahead AC/DC-style Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band from Vaxjo, Sweden. Originally culminating in 1996, the current roster sees Dag “Hell” Hofer (vocals), Adam Hector (bass), Gustav Hjortsjo (drums), Hampus Klang (guitars) and Alexander Lyrbo (guitars). One of my early articles, when I started out writing for Decibel Geek, was a piece on Bullet. […]

SKY EMPIRE – The Dark Tower (Album Review)

I have yet another Progressive Metal band that I need to let you know about. Releasing their debut album, The Dark Tower, which only has five tracks, but they are amazing sounding tracks! You can describe their sound a bastard child of heavy rock bands like Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, and Rush, with a touch […]

HARBOUR OF SOULS – Doomsayer (Album Review)

Sitting here sifting through the many albums I have to try to get the time to listen to, I once again come across one that kinda stood out to me. A plain-looking cover with no band name, no logo, just a really cool looking sketch artwork. I decided to give it a go. Being that […]

INFRARED – Back to the Warehouse (EP Review)

Ottawa’s classic thrashers INFRARED issued their EP Back To The Warehouse on June 14, 2019. Comprised of older material, the EP comes ahead of the next full-length, planned for a 2020 release. The band states: “They are the last of the old songs that we felt should see the light of day. Our upcoming EP is […]

WARRIOR ANGEL – Griffin 1.29, Chapter 1 (Album Review)

New? Something new and probably unknown to many? Sure…We’ve got that. How about some Canadian Rock with a Yugoslavian background? A true story telling of passion, love, pain and sadness. A story that only those close to it can truly understand. Sound like a plot of a Friday night feature? Nope, it’s the new album […]
