Patrick Hemer ~ The writing’s On The Wall

This 2020 release is good for those of you who like hard rock music. Almost every song has a lot of distortion & guitar licks that would make a guitar player want to play his guitar licks. While it may … Continue reading

Moaning Silence ~ A Waltz Into Darkness

This heavy rock band has some good ideas. The female singer is pretty good. The male singer tends to growl at you, which takes away from everything else. That’s what I got out of the 1st song of this album, … Continue reading

Witch Taint ~ Sons Of Midwestern Darkness

  While listening to this album, I first thought that it was just another metal album. While it IS a metal album, it is a parody album, similar to that of Steel Panther. There is banter between songs (not found … Continue reading

Shakra ~ Mad World

  This guitar driven band from Switzerland has a feel of AC/DC meets Nazareth. Very fast paced rock & roll. The only thing missing was an 1980’s type ballad to round out their sound. The closest that we have to … Continue reading

Demons & Wizards ~ lll

  When I first heard the 1st song, “Diabolic”, I figured that I was going to hate this album, but, starting with the 2nd song, the album went MUCH better. If you’re a fan of Iced Earth or Blind Guardian, … Continue reading

Brothers Of Metal ~ Emblas Saga

  Starting off with a slight symphonic beginning before leashing out  into hard rock/metal. Heavy on drums & bass with a nice female vocal guiding you along the path. There are moments where I don’t like what they do, but, … Continue reading
