SAINTED SINNERS – Back With A Vengeance (Album Review)

SAINTED SINNERS – Back With A Vengeance (Album Review)

Wow, it seems like only a year ago I sat down to review the debut album from Sainted Sinners. Holy crap, not even a year!! It was a strong debut filled with lots of Deep Purple/Whitesnake like grooves. So strong in fact that it took the number eight spot on my Decibel Geek 2017 Top Ten List. When I heard that David Reece and Frank Pane had begun work on a sophomore album last year,…

CGCM Podcast Interviews GYPSY ROSE Vocalist, MICHAEL ROSS (News)

CGCM Podcast Interviews GYPSY ROSE Vocalist, MICHAEL ROSS (News)

The CGCM Podcast has released an interview with Michael Ross, vocalist of the Sarnia, ON-based Canadian band Gypsy Rose. Signed to Gene Simmons’ record label Simmons Records/RCA, Gypsy Rose released their debut album Prey in 1990. The album was a melodic hard rock masterpiece. But a changing of musical climate combined with a complete shake-up at RCA left this incredible debut in limbo without the support and push it should have received. A brief Gypsy Rose reunion of sorts took place in 2012…

KADAVAR – Rough Times (Album Review)

KADAVAR – Rough Times (Album Review)

Wallygator here, yes I know it’s been a while since I have put pen to paper for the Decibel Geek. I figured I could squeeze in one review though before the clock hits 2018. Last week, The Meister made a call out for someone to review the new Rough Times album from German rockers Kadavar. Who are Kadavar, you ask? I reacted with that exact same question. Now before I replied to this review request,…

SUiCiDE BOMBERS – Suicide Idols (Album Review)

SUiCiDE BOMBERS – Suicide Idols  (Album Review)

Sleaze, I love this word. As a noun, “She’s such a sleaze” it invokes all kinds of colorful images, but I prefer sleaze as an adjective. Sleaze rock is perhaps one of the most perfect monikers for a musical genre. It so accurately describes not only the look of most of the bands found within the category but also the music itself. For me, sleaze rock is low-slung guitars, riffs that somehow ooze…you guessed it,…

CORRODED – Defcon Zero (Album Review)

CORRODED – Defcon Zero (Album Review)

Another band to hit my radar and assault my ears is Sweden’s Corroded. Not exactly a new band, they have released 4 albums since their debut in 2009 but Defcon Zero is their latest offering to the metal masses. Not sure why but the cover art immediately reminded me of the old Apocalypse Now movie poster from the 70’s. Dark, foreboding and maybe a hint at the music I was about to uncover. I usually follow a…

Shokker – “III” (Album Review)

Shokker – “III” (Album Review)

Everything I love about metal! Looking for something new to sink my teeth into and review, I grabbed a copy of Shokker‘s recent release (April 2017) entitled III. Now I do remember Rich “The Meister” Dillon raving about this band in some of our recent music conversations but to this point I had only ever heard their name. That changed yesterday afternoon when I slipped on the headphones and got my first taste of the…

L.A. GUNS/Diemonds Live! (Concert Review)

L.A. GUNS/Diemonds Live! (Concert Review)

A number of years ago, I watched as one of my all time favorite bands splintered apart in an intense and honestly ugly situation. For quite some time, years actually there was essentially 2 active versions of LA GUNS. I am not sure if they were the first band to create such a situation but they certainly weren’t the last. Great White, Queensryche and more recently Ratt have found themselves in similar situations. Some will…

LORDI at the Opera House Toronto (Concert Review)

LORDI at the Opera House Toronto (Concert Review)

Toronto Loves a Monsterman! A Lordi Concert Review I remember being introduced to the band Lordi way back in 2006 sometime near the release of The Arockalypse album. Being a lifelong KISS fan, I loved the whole “monster” vibe and my inner 12-year old threw his fist in the air! I couldn’t wait to go and experience this band live. Well, it took eleven years for these fine looking Finnish rockers to finally land in…

SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

“Generation”…(insert bassline here)….“Clash”. For those that have no clue what I am referring to in the previous sentence then you are missing out on one of the coolest songs from one of the most underrated albums to come out of the eighties. “Generation Clash” was the lead off single and video to Accept‘s 1989 Eat The Heat album. The video for this song was my introduction to vocalist David Reece who stepped in as replacement…

LYCANTHRO – Lycanthro (EP Review)

LYCANTHRO – Lycanthro (EP Review)

Don’t go around tonight, it’s bound to take your life. There’s a bad moon on the rise! Seems this bad moon has given rise to Lycanthro, a young metal band out of Ottawa, ON. These young musicians have been tearing up local metal shows and have shared stages with the likes of Beyond Creation, Hibria, Untimely Demise and the legendary Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden). Comprised of James Delbridge – Vocals/Guitar, David Shute– Guitar, Michael Lanning – Bass and Jon Picard– Drums, Lycanthro has recently…
