AMERICAN DOG – Unfinished Business (Album Review)

Some release announcements are filled with anticipation. Excitement. Apprehension. And some just plain make you happy. That’s the case with me and Unfinished Business from American Dog.

FIREFORCE – Annihilate the Evil (Album Review)

FIREFORCE – Annihilate the Evil (Album Review)

A hefty slab of Belgian power metal found within! Not knowing anything about Fireforce prior to receiving this album for review, I suspected its contents based on cover art. Always a lover of medieval and fantasy since my younger days, the dragon attacking a Viking warship appealed to me visually.

Late to the party on this fantastic Swiss export, I only joined the Shakra ranks on the High Noon album. From there it was all aboard the Shakra express! I began collecting Shakra‘s recorded offerings. While I still haven’t amassed them all, everything I have managed contains tons of top quality hard rock. The band began in the late 90s with the self-titled debut in 1997. From there the band has issued ten studio outputs…
