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 […]

LICENCE – Never 2 Old 2 Rock (Album Review)

Sequels are exciting, especially if you hold the original in high regard. But sequels can also often be disappointing compared to the original. The biggest exception to that is, of course, the film Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. In 2017 I discovered (thanks to a promo company) a band called LICENCE and their Licence […]

RIOT CITY – Burn the Night (Album Review)

Traditional metal fans rejoice! Old school Accept and Judas Priest lovers sit up and take note! I present Riot City and their May 2019 release Burn the Night. Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada these rippers have been around since about 2011. With a DEMO (Livin’ Fast in 2014) behind it, Burn the Night is a […]

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 […]

WARRIOR SOUL – Rock ‘n’ Roll Disease (Album Review)

I’m expanding my horizons. Rock and roll isn’t dead (seems to be the tagline of today), but it’s harder to find maybe. So far this year, I commented recently, that there were very few releases with that “wow” factor. I like a high energy, head-banging, fist-pumping, foot-to-the-floor flavour to my preferred tunes. I started to […]

SARASIN – Raise the Pain (Album Review)

Some years back, let’s say in January/February of 2015, a plain kraft paper envelope arrived in my mailbox. Simply addressed to “The Meister”, inside was the self-titled album from Hamilton, Ontario band Sarasin. Now, I had caught no whiff of mention or knowledge of Sarasin pre-kraft envelope arrival at my doorstep. I found a CD […]

BAI BANG – Best of Four (Album Review)

CGCM gets banged! Bai Bang is a Swedish Melodic Rock band that formed back in the late 80s in Helsingborg, Sweden. With a back catalogue of eight studio releases, the band has always worked hard in the shadows. Often touring, they love the live show experience. Now with Diddi Kastenholt (vocals) the sole remaining original member, […]
