This year CGCM decided to include EP (previously they were excluded from Top Ten Albums). Live albums and re-records were still disqualified, new music only for Best of Year. We also instigated a (highly complex🤣 – 1 point for 10th place through to 10 points for 1st place) rating system throughout all individual lists to […]

As we all know the world over, this pandemic business has changed life as we know it. One thing many of us are feeling is the loss of the live music scene, in every genre. Personally I’m not someone who can do the Livestream thing. Can’t watch a show on my tv or comp and […]

It all happens on Lake Constance (Bodensee) in Switzerland and limited to 300 passengers. More information on the cruise is available at these links below, including […]
Well, here we are again for the 22nd Riot Radio. This time Meister guides you, our valued listener through a 12-pack of some new groovers in his ears of late. Set up as double shots, that’s six bands at two songs each for a rippin’ episode of new tunes that Meister says “you all need […]
As many regular followers of myself, CGCM Podcast or my former affiliations with Decibel Geek are well aware of my undying love for the Pittsburgh based metal band Lady Beast. I always felt an uplifting from listening to their music. I mean, music has that ability in general, but it was definitely a stronger pull […]
Posted on the Call of the Wild Festival Facebook page March 27, 2020: It is clear the current pandemic will have the country in turmoil for quite a while, ruling out any possibility of keeping to our May schedule, particularly the restrictions on mass gatherings that have been brought in and may still be in […]
From the land of mountains, cheese, chocolate and tiny little knives comes the Rock Police! Swiss hard rock band Hysteria issued their Rock Police EP on March 14, 2020. And it’s a great 80s inspired slab of high energy riffy rock! In 2013 Hysteria was formed by Arni (guitar), Manu (bass/vocals) and Mäse (drums) and […]
Canada’s THE WILD! truly are a force to reckon with. They’ve grown a lot in popularity and recognition with good reason, but there’s still so very many not in the know. The band, based out of Kelowna, B.C. launched in 2012. Releasing their first video in 2012 for the song “Roadhouse” brought them airplay on […]
The Meister is at it again! Well, another Riot Radio, yes, but I meant travel. He’s off on the Monsters of Rock Cruise on a boatload of bands, babes and booze…the supreme definition of debauchery! But there will be zero breaks in our content this time around. Bad internet connections can’t hold us back. A […]
Coming out of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil is Electric Poison. Unfortunately, they had not crossed my path when CGCM Podcast recorded our Around the World in 80 Episodes Brazil Edition. They just reached me only a couple of weeks ago via their debut full-length Live Wire issued in November of 2019. Ahead of that, the 2014 […]
