Sleepy Hollow – Tales of Gods and Monsters: Album Review

Sleepy Hollow – Tales of Gods and Monsters: Album Review

Sleepy Hollow‘s Tales of Gods and Monsters, out this coming Friday (19th) on Pure Steel Records, is the fourth release for the self-styled US Metal Veterans and the second since their reunion for 2012’s Skull 13. Interestingly, it’s the first album without original singer Bob Mitchell and after listening to the previous outings I have to say I prefer the new “dramatic, plainly deeper vocals” approach from replacement singer Chapel Stormcrow; Mitchell‘s all out air-raid siren…

Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock @ The Ironworks, Inverness

Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock @ The Ironworks, Inverness

Towards the end of last year, I was fortunate enough to score the job of reviewing the new album by Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock, Spirit on a Mission. Not only did the album utterly blow me away but I also found out that the band was visiting Inverness, of all places, on the UK leg of the Spirit on a Mission tour.

Regardless, their latest release certainly doesn’t sound like a bunch of old guys going through the motions; it sounds pretty bloody incredible and makes me wish I’d heard of these guys sooner. 1. Masters and Slaves 2. Sea of Sins 3. When Darkness…

Album Review: Andrew Watt – Ghost In My Head (EP)

Out of California Breed‘s demise comes guitarist Andrew Watt‘s debut through John Varvatos Records/Republic Records, and on the four track EP we find Watt, who came to mainstream attention as part of California Breed (formed with Glen Hughes and Jason Bonham) in supremely confident form. . Personally, I’ve really been looking forward to this release after Watt‘s paint-blisteringly low down & dirty playing on California Breed, which to be truthful suits my tastes far more than Hughes &…

Hey there, and a very Happy KISSmas in July! Just in case you’ve wandered in here by mistake, KISS is a huge band, commanding a huge and devoted following. Most fans have favourite eras and line-ups and enjoy them regardless but for some arguing about who & what is best seems to take up most of their time. Personally, I just like the music, and the performance, in and of itself, no matter what era…
