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. […]

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 […]

DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

The first time I heard Danko Jones “Bounce” I was overtaken. His sound was so different, so fresh. It had a funk to it but was also balls-out hard rock. The song used to play on the radio in the kitchen at work or in my car while I was delivering pizzas thanks to the […]

BEXATRON – Rivoli Toronto (Concert Review)

Since first hearing the album’s lead-off track, “Get Out of My Tree”, it’s catchy hum along chorus will not leave my grey matter. The album arrived at the doorstep of CGCM Central and our staff writer and all-around good guy Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall jumped on an album review. Check it out here: Bexatron – Hey […]

GREEN JELLŸ – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Sometimes it’s good to try new things. Get out of your comfort zone. I did just that at Sweden Rock 2019. All hell-bent for leather on seeing Saxon on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at the festival, that plan dissipated surprisingly easy. It was suggested to me that “you’ve seen Saxon many times”. Indeed I have, […]

CALL OF THE WILD 2020- First Band Announcement (News)

CGCM Podcast‘s Rich “The Meister” Dillon had an excellent time at Call of the Wild Festival this year. Already booked accomodations for 2020, he is most definitely returning to this new awesome festival in the UK. Take a listen to CGCM Podcast EP#62-Meister Hears the Call for an idea of the fun times had at […]

BURNING WITCHES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Once again the first band of the day proves how Sweden Rock should be started! They again, like The Wild! yesterday, hold the “Best Band of the Day” title! I present Burning Witches, a quintet of ladies hailing from Switzerland. Springing to life (or wisping out of a cauldron perhaps), Burning Witches started out in […]

BARSTOOL PROPHETS – Crank (Retro Review)

Ever get tired of nothing but “new” music? Don’t get me wrong, I love discovering new bands, awesome new songs, and albums, but sometimes the old favourites from days gone by get lost in the shuffle. And, subsequently forgotten. With the sheer influx of pre-release promos I receive from companies and outlets around the world, […]

CGCM Podcast EP#65-Riot Radio #3 (Meister)-SRF 2019

Disciples of the Beaver! Welcome to CGCM Podcast EP#65-Riot Radio #3. Let’s face it, radio is dead but I am here to tell you there is a choice. The CGCM Podcast is determined to do our part in uncovering all of the amazing music that gets all but ignored on your local stations. The concept […]

LICENCE – Never 2 Old 2 Rock (Album Reviews)

And here we go again! For the second occurrence in recent times at CGCM central, two of the only three guys involved in CGCM have reviewed the same album! You’d think we could communicate better since there’s only three of us? Or maybe the album was again just that damn good that it needed to […]
