An Apology: Due to health hassles and online problems, this review is a little late coming. However, if you don’t already own the album (why not?) this will give you the reasons why you should. As some would say “better late than never”. So here goes… History And Background: Jack J Hutchinson is a singer-songwriter […]

MADHOUSE – Money Talks Bullshit Walks (Album Review)

Sleaze dripping, spandex & leather-wearing, guitar ripping, bass, and drum pounding, kick your teeth in, make you want to grab your leopard print bandanas, and the aqua-net. If this doesn’t get you thinking of the great glam bands of the time, well I have a great reminder for you, and you don’t even have to […]

AGE OF REFLECTION – A New Dawn (Album Review)

I am by no means the king of AOR. I leave that to certain friends of mine. Mostly I find much of it too flowery with all the keyboards. I prefer a little more “dick punch” to my grooves. That said there are a few AOR bands that do rise above the grade. The songs […]

TRACK OF ROCK – Track Of Rock (Album Review)

So many times I have heard that “Rock is Dead“. If you agree with that statement, then you’re in the wrong place and I will wait for you to throw your ass outta here…go ahead, and don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya. Now that that’s done, let me tell […]

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)

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 […]
