D-A-D – A Prayer For The Loud (Album Review)

When many people think of a rock band, they usually don’t think of the blues. Well, that may be true, but without blues players like the legendary, Robert Johnson, or others like Muddy Waters, or BB King, we wouldn’t have the rock we all know and love today. One band that comes to mind is […]

Music is the Medicine! (Blog)

Lately I’ve been off work from my day to day job. Anyone that follows me on Facebook might have already known that. But for those who didn’t let me give you a brief update. I’m a “big, tall guy”, at least that’s what my doctors keep saying. I’m 6’9″ tall, and weight in around 327lbs. […]

JANET GARDNER – Your Place In The Sun (Album Review)

Janet Gardner deservedly is at the top of the heap in today’s hard rock female vocalists. Having fronted the all-female band Vixen to the top of the Billboard charts with songs like “Edge Of A Broken Heart“, and “Crying“, she’s no stranger to the Hard Rock music scene. Having toured extensively with Vixen, and having […]

STEEL PROPHET – The God Machine (Album Review)

Sometimes an album just hits you from out of nowhere. Sometimes that album is so good that 2 of the 3 writers currently at CGCM Podcast feel the need to review it. Such is the case with STEEL PROPHET – The God Machine. Enjoying the album as they did (and failing to communicate with each […]

THE RODS – Brotherhood Of Metal (Album Review)

“This is an album that your mother won’t be humming”.  Carl Canedy, drummer of legendary US metal act The Rods talks about the new album, Brotherhood Of Metal. Both the song and the album title tell us the musicians’ attitude towards life. More importantly, it’s pretty much the whole band’s philosophy. Almost eight years after […]

WHEELS OF FIRE – Begin Again (Album Review)

The third album from the Italian melodic hard rockers Wheels of Fire Is about to hit the shelves, and aptly titled Begin Again. They are definitely back and ready to blast back onto the scene with what I personally think is their strongest album to date! The Album It is noteworthy to mention that this […]

STEFANO VIANA – A Quick Interaction (Print Interview)

Recently I had the opportunity to sit and have a quick, and small chat with the creative mind behind the AOR/Hard Rock band VIANA. I cannot say how thrilled I was to speak to Stefano Viana, even though it was just briefly.  He has been a gracious man in the time I’ve gotten to know […]

HELIX – Old School (A Brief Interview)

Never have I been more excited to do a review on an album!  The iconic Canadian band Helix is back with a new release that I have been anticipating since its announcement.  Yes I know there are “other” Canadian icons but none meant more to me then Helix! Helix are back with Old School.  It’s […]

BONFIRE – Live On Holy Ground – Wacken 2018

Unlike CGCM Podcast‘s The Meister this Psycho cannot travel worldwide to take in concerts. The lack of funds, family responsibilities and the simple fact of no passport doesn’t help. So with that in mind, the closest I can get is DVDs, YouTube and live albums. I’m not always big on live albums, however. Yes, I […]
