THE TREATMENT – Power Crazy (Album Review)

A few years back, after being out of music for quite some time, I jumped back into the pool in full force. It’s like I was whole again, I didn’t realize how much music meant to me. Why I was “out of the game”, we’ll leave for another day. But, I indeed discovered that “my […]

FRENZY – Blind Justice (Album Review)

Comics and metal like peas and pods? How can you go wrong with a combination like that? When I was but a young lad, I was, of course, a comic book fanatic. These days I like some of the feature films and a couple of the TV shows. But mostly I’m out of touch with […]

The Anticipation of MORC 2019 (Blog)

Exactly one week from today, I will be airborne! As I prepare to head out from Toronto to Miami for my ninth Monsters of Rock Cruise, I thought I’d jot down some thoughts.

KILLER BEE – Remember the Times (Album Review)

Atmospheric beginnings leave way into the explosion of hard drumming and sweet guitar riffage that follow. That’s the start of the latest offering from the Swedish Canadian band Killer Bee and the lead track “Rockaholic”. The song rips along at a breakneck pace with almost thrash sensibilities underlying. That’s exactly how you open a fucking […]
