OZ – Forced Commandments (Album Review)

Super-Quick In 2017 Finnish metallers OZ produced their first album of all-new songs in 31 years with the excellent Transition State.

Y&T – Holmfirth Picturedrome, UK (Concert Review)

Why? WHY? A million words have been written about how good Y&T are live in concert and that’s because every one of them is true. Witnessing Dave Menketti and the guys at the final show of their UK tour was a true privilege. One of the great mysteries of our time is why Y&T never became true megastars. That question still […]
