NWOBHM Radio Show Part #1 (Meister Music Radio Show)

Hello all, I’m Rich “The Meister” Dillon co-creator, podcast co-host, website content creator and radio show host here at CGCM Rock Radio. I’ve long been a fan of the NWOBHM and similar-sounding sub-genres of Metal. So for a while now I’ve been thinking about showcasing NWOBHM bands in an episode of my weekly CGCM Rock […]

MINDLESS SINNER – Master of Evil (Album Review)

Meager Having released a meager four full-length studio albums in 37 years Mindless Sinner have managed the remarkable feat of putting out two in the same year. Granted, Master of Evil is a vinyl collection of a previously released EP and some demos but it still counts in my book.  Master Master of Evil comes […]

TOLEDO STEEL – The First Strike of Steel (The Early Years)(Album Review)

New Wave TOLEDO STEEL play traditional metal in a traditional style with great results. Whilst the band themselves describe their music as New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal there is more than a whiff of New Wave of British Heavy Metal and in particular the influence of Iron Maiden. Hailing from that well-known hotbed of […]

TOKYO BLADE – Dark Revolution (Album Review)

T-shirt Tokyo Blade have been there, done that, and bought many a t-shirt in the 40-odd years they’ve been in existence. In true metal style, they’ve been through band members like a dose of salts but in recent times the line-up has become settled with members returning who were there in the early 80s and […]

MINDLESS SINNER – Poltergeist (Album Review)

Feeling It must be a great feeling playing the music you love with people you love for 40 years, but that exactly what the guys of Mindless Sinner have done. Apart from a personnel change way back in 1982 it has been the same line-up, which must be applauded and appreciated. In fact, they’ve had […]

ADX – Bestial (Album Review)

Background: ADX are a new name on me. As there was no information with the stream that was sent I had to go googling to try and get some background about them. They are supposedly “speed metal” however on listening to the album they are more varied than that. The band originates from Paris, France. […]

IRONFLAME – Blood Red Victory (Album Review)

Ride It’s always a great feeling riding into the New Year on the back of some quality heavy metal. This particular horse goes by the name of Ironflame and the flag they carry into battle is one of unerring power and strength. Multi-instrumentalist Andrew D’Cagna formed Ironflame in late 2016 as a solo project, but […]

ANGEL WITCH – Angel of Light (Album Review)

Influential Angel Witch have been credited with being an influential band in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement in the early 1980s. By that time they had been around for several years but fortunately, their eponymous debut did not emerge until 1980. It was the track “Baphomet” which first garnered attention. The UK […]

DEMON – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog and Photos)
