TYGERS OF PAN TANG – Majors and Minors (Album Review)

Compilation Tygers of Pan Tang are no strangers to compilation albums. Indeed, according to their own website they have released 13 of the damn things. What none of them do, however, is cover the more ‘recent’ period, referred to by some as the “Renaissance Period”. This may have something to with having a Florentine on […]

WIG WAM – Never Say Die (Album Review)

Return Norwegian glam metallers Wig Wam blast back onto the scene following their reformation in 2019 with a great new album Never Say Die.

Atlantis provides all those elements in spades, along with the expected lyrics reflecting the society in which we live today. One enforced change to the line-up comes in the form of new vocalist Damien Edwards. Edwards had […]
