Album Review: Blood Red Saints – Speedway

Album Review: Blood Red Saints – Speedway

When the CD Speedway by a band called Blood Red Saints came my way for a review I wasn’t sure what to expect. After all, I had never even heard of them. I listened to couple tunes and found them extremely appealing. Where do I sign up? I immediately asked fellow Decibel Geek Rich “The Meister” Dillon who they were.  He said they were an offshoot of a couple bands including In Faith. My first…

Rock n’ Skull Spotlight: Talon – They Put the Fire Back in My Soul!

Rock n’ Skull Spotlight: Talon – They Put the Fire Back in My Soul!

Talon – They Put the Fire Back in My Soul!! Let’s go back to the mid to late 1990’s to start this review. You know, back when most of us true melodic hard rock fans went into a deep, dark hole having seen the music we love almost completely disappear off the face of our musical planet. This was a dry spell that went on for years. Was this what the great depression and prohibition…

Album Review: Mad Max – Thunder, Storm & Passion

Album Review: Mad Max – Thunder, Storm & Passion

Germany, Germany, Germany, wow what can I say about that country’s contribution to hard rock and metal. For a while, it seemed every band I heard that I liked came from Germany. Accept, Pink Cream 69, Iron Savior, Bonfire, Doro, Frontline, Jaded Heart, and Victory – just to name a few and, of course, my favorite band of all time, the Scorpions. Not to be missed on this list is Mad Max. Mad Max has…

Album Review: Casablanca – Miskatonic Graffiti

Album Review: Casablanca – Miskatonic Graffiti

I like lists. In fact, I love lists. I keep lists for everything. Top 10’s, best of’s, bucket lists and must see’s. On my list of “Euro Must See” bands is one from Sweden called Casablanca. This entry to my list was acquired from loving their first two CD’s – 2012’s Apocalyptic Youth and 2013’s Riding the Black Swan. So when given the opportunity to review their latest CD Miskatonic Graffiti, I jumped at the…

Midway Lights and Slow Rides-Foghat Plays C.N.E. Toronto

Midway Lights and Slow Rides-Foghat Plays C.N.E. Toronto

I came across a post last November in Bandsintown about Foghat playing the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) the following August. I laughed and said holy cow that’s almost a year away! Well as usual, the year flew by and I found myself heading down to Toronto. I eagerly paid my $30 for parking and $18 admission and made my way down to the “free” Bandshell concert. Being a child of the 70’s, Foghat were a…

CONFIRMED: I am a Rockaholic!

I have had the pleasure of going on the first three Monsters of Rock Cruises and I am currently booked on the upcoming fourth one in April 2015. One band that I am still surprised about their absence on the cruise so far has been Warrant. They have all the qualifications – American, MTV stars, late 80’s/early 90’s sound and they are still touring. Maybe there is a story behind why that I have yet…
