SWEDEN ROCK 2019 Coverage


CALL OF THE WILD Festival Coverage

INFRARED – Back to the Warehouse (EP Review)

Ottawa’s classic thrashers INFRARED issued their EP Back To The Warehouse on June 14, 2019. Comprised of older material, the EP comes ahead of the next full-length, planned for a 2020 release. The band states: “They are the last of the old songs that we felt should see the light of day. Our upcoming EP is […]

DIRTY HONEY – Dirty Honey (EP Review)

Many times when I have a few albums to listen too and write reviews on, I’ll be honest, it’s the album cover or pictures that accompany it that make me choose which I listen to first. To be completely honest, the cover for Dirty Honey didn’t scream out “Listen To Me.” Unfortunately, it kinda got […]

GENERATIONS ARMY – Voices and Visions (EP Review)

I discover new and “new to me” music from a variety of places. Festival attendance is one way through either the pre-fest listening prep or the surprise live set. Another is through recommendations of friends. So, when a friend asked me to look into a band called The Generations Army I thought, “what the hell?”. […]

THE EROTICS – Stuck Between Venus and Mars (EP Review)

The Erotics – Stuck Between Venus and Mars is the new EP from the New York-based punk/glam/sleaze band. Dropping on August 24, 2018, via Cacophone Records, The Erotics deliver six songs on this slab of wax. Basically, I have never heard of The Erotics before. Until a Swedish friend started to chirp about them recently […]

KILLER BEE – Tapes from the Attic (Album Review)

Killer Bee‘s new EP Tapes from the Attic is presumably just that. Five songs cultivated from some old cassette recordings found in Anders Ronnblom‘s attic. And all five are purely 80s sounding (although the band only began recording in the 90s). Hooks, catches and choruses abound, they were recorded during the band’s first go around. […]

HELL’S GAZELLES – Take Your Medicine (EP Review)

When HELL’S GAZELLES – Take Your Medicine appeared in my promo downloads, I was instantly attracted to it. The album cover. The band name. They were simply intriguing and crying out for me to listen to it. On to the phone it went for sampling during the public transit commute to work. The EP played […]

MARK DANIEL – New Truth EP (EP Review)

MARK DANIEL – New Truth EP (EP Review)

I’m a hard Rock guy. A face-melting kinda guy. Blistering solos tastefully positioned in the song. NWOBHM, Power Metal are preferred genres. I hate ballads (mostly…some of the classics from my youth warm my heart though). Don’t misunderstand me though, I’m also a vocals and melody guy. That being said sometimes a little lighter fare […]

BEDLAM REBELS – Self-titled EP (EP Review)

BEDLAM REBELS – Self-titled EP (EP Review)

San Diego based rock ‘n’ roll band Bedlam Rebels reached out to Decibel Geek via email to request that we take a listen to their forthcoming self-titled EP. The five-song collection drops on January 16, 2017, via Vonspor Records. For some bio info on Bedlam Rebels, they are comprised of Sean Macomber (vocals), Chris Sporleder […]

ANDY BASIOLA – Behind the Illusion (EP Review)

ANDY BASIOLA – Behind the Illusion (EP Review)

Sometimes it’s the little guys that provide the most enjoyment. I couldn’t help but think such thoughts while taking a listen to this five-song EP. I speak of Andy Basiola – Behind the Illusion (EP) that’s due for issue on January 19, 2018. As one must be to rise above the literal wave of submissions […]

KLAYMORE – It’s Alive 5th Anniversary Edition (EP Review)

KLAYMORE – It’s Alive 5th Anniversary Edition (EP Review)

Behold Klaymore. A band hailing from Pittsburgh, Klaymore have recently crossed my path. They were familiar to me in name only and even then not so much when I was asked to review their latest EP, It’s Alive 5th Anniversary Edition. I took to the net prior to jumping into the listen for some background […]
