Shaman Elephant ~ Wide Awake But Still Asleep

  Another album in the hard rock follows my last review. This is not thrash metal, it is more melodic in nature, but, the musicians all stand out on the album. The drummer really stands out even more than the … Continue reading

Havok ~ V

  Although I am not a fan of Thrash Metal, I can tell you that listening to this album, I can hear the music is really very good. While I’m not a fan of screaming to the point where I … Continue reading

Iron City Houserockers ~ Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive)

  This album, which was originally recorded in 1977, has finally reared it’s head. This album reminded me very much of Thin Lizzy, but they do use piano, where Thin Lizzy doesn’t. It’s not the best album that I’ve heard, … Continue reading

Thor ~ Rising

  This heavy metal canadian band starts off their new album “Rising” with a real heavy song called “Wormhole”, which will also be their first single. If you’re a fan of Dio or Dokken, this just may be the band … Continue reading

Sons Of Appollo ~ MMXX

  Another great one from Sons Of Appollo. Starting off with a song over 7 minutes long, that starts off very slow & melodic, and then blisters into what you would expect from Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, … Continue reading

David Reese ~ Cacophony Of Souls

  This album started off poorly, for me, but, by the 3rd song, the album seemed to get better. You may know David Reese from the band Accept or maybe Bonfire. His vocals still have that sound, if you’re familiar … 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

  This album, which should make heavy rock fans happy, is a blend of artists that you may have heard of before. Included in this roster is Zak Stevens (vocals), Aldo Lonobile (guitars), Yves Campion (bass), Marco Lazzarini (drums), Antonio … Continue reading
