Don Dokken ~ Solitary

I’ve always liked Dokken as a band, but, I would never say that they were my favorite. Now, Don Dokken puts out an album, which, I could say would be right up there with my favorites. Since I’ve last heard … Continue reading

Dirty Shirley

This album took me by surprise. I knew almost nothing of this band. I can tell you that George Lynch is in this band, which, I believe is the reason that I took to it so quickly, but, perhaps it … Continue reading

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

Hexx ~ Entangled In Sin

If you’re a fan of Van Halen, you may just like this band as well. You can hear Dan Watson or Bob Wright, whoever is on lead guitar, doing licks similar to Eddie Van Halen. In my opinion, the vocalist, … Continue reading

Frost* ~ Others EP

This EP, which has 6 songs (wouldn’t that be an album?) is quite different than what most would think about, when they listen to Frost*. I really love this band. Most of their music is really great. Their debut album, … 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

Pushy ~ Hard Wish

  This hard rock with a classic vibe band has just come out with their debut album. I do love the classic feel of it. It has that 1970’s distortion sound, at at times, even a wah-wah pedal. “Black Top” … Continue reading

Poltergeist ~ Feather Of Truth

  For those of you who love hard metal, this will probably be the album for you. For me, this was OK. The music was really good. I loved the way that the bass & drumming played off of each … Continue reading

Jorn ~ Heavy Rock Radio 2 – Executing The Classics
