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 […]

CALL OF THE WILD – Festival Preview (Blog)

So, The Meister is at it yet again! As many followers of CGCM or Decibel Geek or personal Facebook friends know, Rich “The Meister” Dillon is a rock show freak. He travels, often far and wide for the gig. He is known to endure 6-hour bus trips in the middle of the night to get […]

CGCM Podcast Bonus Episode – At The Farm! (Farm Rocks)

Farms are the lifeblood of our nation. They provide us with healthy nutrients from the freshly grown crops of fruits and vegetables. There is one farm, however that specializes in a different kind of crop. A farm that specializes in Rock n Roll! The Canadian Geeks stopped by this special farm to deliver our listeners […]

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?”. […]

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!┬áBai 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, […]

THE WILDHEARTS – Renaissance Men (Album Review)

Here goes the influence once again! Those that maybe listen to CGCM Podcast, or read a few of my articles have probably noticed mention of an influential person in my life. Sometimes even called “The Bad Influence”, although that’s only in jest. This person has opened my eyes and ears to quite a bit. Now, […]

METALOCALYPSE – Animated Series (TV Show Review)

Brothers and sisters, the apocalypse is descended upon us. The Metalocalypse that is… So, I started watching this show titled Metalocalypse on recommendation from someone possessing impeccable taste. They’ve turned me onto a few things in recent times, and I’m better for it. This is just one in that long string of home runs. Astounded […]

IRON MAIDENS in Stockholm (Concert Blog)

A couple of weeks back it was my birthday. I had the extreme pleasure of spending “Meister Day” (also “Wallygator Day” and “CGCM Day” among others) in a foreign country. A country that I love and am actually planning a move to in the future. And what a better way to spend a birthday than […]

TRUCKER DIABLO – Other Side of the City (Single Review)

I owe a few things to the Northern Ireland band TRUCKER DIABLO. They were a huge part in my “reawakening”. You see, I spent a number of years “out” of music. Mostly for reasons that I just don’t care to go into here and it’s not really important anyway. As I started to once again […]
