BATTLE BEAST – Ottawa 2019 (Review & Photo Gallery)

Seeing that Finnish band Battle Beast signed on to tour North America with Kamelot and Sonata Arctica both Shawn and I were interested. To be honest, my band out of those three is the stage setters of Battle Beast. Personally, I’m not much into Kamelot or Sonata Arctica. But is it worth the ticket cost […]

DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

The first time I heard Danko Jones “Bounce” I was overtaken. His sound was so different, so fresh. It had a funk to it but was also balls-out hard rock. The song used to play on the radio in the kitchen at work or in my car while I was delivering pizzas thanks to the […]

DEMONS & WIZARDS – Sweden Rock 2019 (Photo Gallery)

One of the most talked-about power metal projects ever was formed in 1998 by singer Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and guitarist Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth).

GREEN JELLŸ – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Sometimes it’s good to try new things. Get out of your comfort zone. I did just that at Sweden Rock 2019. All hell-bent for leather on seeing Saxon on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at the festival, that plan dissipated surprisingly easy. It was suggested to me that “you’ve seen Saxon many times”.
