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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

SABATON – The Great War (Album Review)

    SABATON – The Great War Out July 19th, 2019 Formed in 1999, Sabaton’s first album was Fist for Fight, a compilation consisting of material from two demo tapes recorded between 1999 and 2000. After that, 2005 brought the second album, Primo Victoria, where Sabaton made their true mark and never looked back. Headlining […]

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 […]
