UNLEASH THE ARCHERS – Apex (Album Review)

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS – Apex (Album Review)

Prepare to get your head blown off (in the very best way) by this powerhouse vocalist, Brittney Slayes, and her melodic power metal quintet. Hailing from Victoria, British Columbia, Unleash the Archers are quickly reminding me of all the reasons I have a love for this type of music. I wouldn’t consider this to be death metal at all (although some have used that reference), this band is a super talented, melodic speed metal band…

AMERICAN BOMBSHELL – No Regrets (Album Review)

AMERICAN BOMBSHELL – No Regrets (Album Review)

After reading my review of the Junkyard/Little Caesar show, I was contacted by Steve Boyles from American Bombshell. He had read that I had missed their set, in Indy, and offered to send me a CD. I gladly accepted and offered to review it, thinking it was the least I could do. Immediately I thought “CRAP!! I hope I like it!!” The last time I gave a non-favorable review, Rich “The Meister” Dillon, and I, got death…

JUNKYARD and LITTLE CAESAR Live in Indy (Concert Review)

JUNKYARD and LITTLE CAESAR Live in Indy (Concert Review)

It’s funny how things work out sometimes. Every once in a while, all the pieces fall into place, and something really cool happens… Earlier this year, my husband’s favorite band, Junkyard, were announced to be playing at The Rockpile in Toronto. Since Chris (my husband) had been spending so much time in Canada, while we were working on my immigration to the US, and Junkyard being his favorite North American band, we figured it was a…

DWaRfS on Golf…Round Two! DBG Tees Off!

An adventure in golfing with the Decibel Geek Squad. “Where’s my ball?” “Was my head up?” “Did you see where my ball went?” “Was my head up that time?” “I think my head was definitely up because I saw where the ball went.” “Where’s my effing ball?” “I was sure I didn’t have my head up that time!” “Did I have my head up, that time?” “…Where’s the beer cart!!!!!!!” And so begins round two…

KiLLeR DWaRfS Removing Barriers

Removing Barriers: The experience of a fan and a friend of The KiLLeR DWaRfS. Closing in on the last weekend in August, I arrived in Melbourne, Florida early on Thursday afternoon. It’s the weekend music festival called 80’s in the Park and I’d been looking forward to this for some time. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with my rock ‘n roll brothers and sisters from all over North America, make lots of new friends,…

Summer Slaughter 2015 by Metal Kate

Summer Slaughter 2015 by Metal Kate

Every once in a while, I find myself unexpectedly blown away by a band. Last night was one of those nights. My friend Marv invited me to the Summer Slaughter Tour in Hamilton and although most of the bands were a little heavier than I’m used to, I figured it would be fun. Plus, I’ve been dying to meet Marv in person. He admins a Facebook page, a YouTube channel, and a Twitter feed all…

Gundriver CD Review By MetalKate

Gundriver CD Review By MetalKate

  I first stumbled on Gundriver, about a year and a half ago, at the Rockpile, in Toronto. I was helping my friend Ethan at his merch stand and the guys from Gundriver were right beside me working their table. Both Ethan Brosh and Gundriver were opening for Michael Schenker, that night. The Gundriver guys were cracking me up the whole night so I was already a fan of them as people, but when they…

Eden’s Curse ‘Live With the Curse’ Review

Eden’s Curse ‘Live With the Curse’ Review

I’ve been a little pre-occupied these past few months and neglecting my love for music and writing. Luckily for me, the ‘Powers That Be’ at Decibel Geek, were about to inspire me once again. I opened my computer and the first post I read on our staff page was FULL of CD’s up for review. Eden’s Curse Live With the Curse jumped right out at me so I snagged it immediately.  I’m kicking myself now because I’ve been caught up…

Nice Day for a DWaRf Wedding.

     July 25, 2014.  I’ve been looking forward to this day for months. For me, this beats all the other events of the summer. We’re heading down to Buffalo for a rockin’ concert and the wedding of Darrell Millar (aka Darrell Dwarf) and his long-time girlfriend, Stracey Burtch.The venue is one of the coolest I’ve been to.  Braun’s Bar and Grill, in the quaint little town of Akron, NY, is a favourite of the DWaRfs. The owner,…

The KiLLeR DWaRfs. A Hometown Legend.

The KiLLeR DWaRfs. A Hometown Legend.By Kate Campbell. I’m two weeks home from the Monsters of Rock Cruise and the music just hasn’t stopped!! My American friends are quite envious because it really does seem that a lot of the bands followed us back to Canada. Slaughter played The Rockpile the first weekend I was home and Y&T the second weekend. Now heading into the Easter weekend, I get to see one of my all…
