WORRY BLAST – .44 (Album Review)

Worry Blast have chosen to begin their .44 album with “Outta Nowhere”. Disgustingly appropriate seeing as that’s what happened here. They came at me hard from “Outta Nowhere”! This album is high-energy AC/DC influenced hard rock from the first second to the last. Hailing from Switzerland, Worry Blast has apparently been around since at least […]

DEVOID – Cup of Tears (Album Review)

When a record comes to you supplied by a label such as Melodic Rock Records, one would expect, well melodic rock. And yes there’s tons of melody ingrained in Devoid‘s Cup of Tears release.

THE GANG – The Gang (Album Review)

Female-fronted hard rock from Slovakia! Well, that sounds pretty cool…let’s check it out! Coming to fruition originally in 2013, from what I can find on the internet, The Gang formed with bassist Tom the Thunder, classically educated keyboardist Iggy the Reaper and heavyweight drummer Dr. Evil. Is that Michael Myers? In 2014, The Gang issued an EP titled Let It Rock before talented young vocalist Dory (whose […]

WHITE WIZZARD – Infernal Overdrive (Album Review)

I’ve been listening to White Wizzard for some time now. Years actually. No idea where I first discovered the band, but I was probably drawn in by the misspelling of “wizard”. Anytime a band misspells with Z’s or adds random umlauts over letters, their music is usually great. Now that that’s out of the way, I […]

SEASONS OF THE WOLF – Last Act of Defiance (Album Review)

After an eleven-year-long hiatus from the musical landscape, Seasons of the Wolf are crashing back in a big way. Who? Well, OK, me too.

Yet another of those bands from the 80s making a resurgence. Are we tired of it yet…hell no! Certainly not when they’re awesome. In this case, we have a band called Trespass. These guys started out in Suffolk, England in 1979. Originally put together by brothers Mark (guitar/vocals) and Paul Sutcliffe (drums), Dave Crawte (guitar), […]
