TRUCKER DIABLO – Tail End Of A Hurricane (Album Review)

I first heard about Trucker Diablo on the CGCM podcast. The episode was a festival report that the Meister was doing for the Call of the Wild Festival. That was the first time I have heard of Trucker Diablo. I decided to look into them a bit more and was glad I did.  That was […]

ORDEN OGAN – Final Days (Album Review)

Alister Vale “My name is Alister Vale. I am the last survivor of Easton Hope. Only the rags that cling to my back remain. I have lost everything else and journeyed countless miles.

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 […]
