THE EROTICS – Stuck Between Venus and Mars (EP Review)

THE EROTICS – Stuck Between Venus and Mars (EP Review)

The Erotics – Stuck Between Venus and Mars is the new EP from the New York-based punk/glam/sleaze band. Dropping on August 24, 2018, via Cacophone Records, The Erotics deliver six songs on this slab of wax. Basically, I have never heard of The Erotics before. Until a Swedish friend started to chirp about them recently in her excitement to witness them at HRH Sheffield in early September. Then as if by magic or the call…

MAYBE NEVER – Maybe Never (Album Review)

MAYBE NEVER – Maybe Never (Album Review)

Sometimes a completely unknown band opening a show can just click with you. As an avid music listener and rabid fan of the Hard Rock/Heavy Metal genres this discovery is one of the greatest feelings. There’s no pre-conceived notions, just you experiencing the band’s compositions and live show for the first time.  Such was the case with Maybe Never out of Rochester, N.Y. My Maybe Never awakening occurred as my friend (Olivier from Sleazeroxx) and…

WILSON – Tasty Nasty (Album Review)

WILSON – Tasty Nasty (Album Review)

Detroit rockers Wilson are back with a new record titled Tasty Nasty. Fans of the band’s full blast hard rock/metal sound are in for a surprise.  Well, less of a surprise and more a shock.  If you’ve been following lead singer Chad Nicefield on Instagram, he’s been leaving cryptic clues for at least a few months that with the benefit of hindsight seem to foreshadow the evolution Wilson was in midst of. Tasty Nasty is…

KILLER BEE – Tapes from the Attic (Album Review)

KILLER BEE – Tapes from the Attic (Album Review)

Killer Bee‘s new EP Tapes from the Attic is presumably just that. Five songs cultivated from some old cassette recordings found in Anders Ronnblom‘s attic. And all five are purely 80s sounding (although the band only began recording in the 90s). Hooks, catches and choruses abound, they were recorded during the band’s first go around. Forming in 1990 and recording Raw in 1993, Cracked Up in 1995 and World Order Revolution in 1997, Killer Bee…

BLACK COFFEE – Take One (Album Review)

BLACK COFFEE – Take One (Album Review)

Iced or steaming hot? How do you like your coffee? I take mine Black and powerful! The buzz has to be there and so has the strength. All these qualities can be found with the band called Black Coffee. Black Coffee formed in early 2017 after drummer Tommy McCullough introduced singer/bassist, Ehab Omran, to guitarist Justin Young. From the Ohio area, these men provide a classic backdrop for the modern rock world. It would be…

BLACK KING COBRA – Law Of Attraction (EP Review)

BLACK KING COBRA – Law Of Attraction (EP Review)

When writing for Decibel Geek, I am sometimes contacted regarding new or upcoming bands. What is occasionally annoying is when one of them is pretty local and has played one of my home town’s venues not so long ago and I missed them. However, as they say “better late than never”. This is the case with Glasgow based hard rockers Black King Cobra. I was lucky enough to be sent their new EP being released August…

KISS – ’78 Solo Albums, Hollywood style (Album Review, KISSmas in July)

KISS – ’78 Solo Albums, Hollywood style (Album Review, KISSmas in July)

Five decades ago, the biggest band on this continent, a free nation, conceived in Liberty, dedicated themselves to the proposition that all bands are not created equal.  Although Abraham Lincoln had died 113 years prior to KISS embarking on the seemingly impossible journey of releasing 4 solo albums on the same day, I think he would’ve been proud of how far our country had come along.  Can you imagine Lincoln in Ace’s makeup? So, to…

EPICA – Vs Attack On Titan Songs (EP Review)

Background To Release Epica have decided to officially release worldwide the EP that was only released in Japan late last year.  Entitled Vs Attack On Titan Songs, this is music originally composed by Revo from a Japanese band called Linked Horizon.  Linked Horizon wrote the music for a series of Manga movies. The pieces were written (apparently) in an Epica style, so now the band have re-recorded them for the more Metal based market. To…

MASSIVE WAGONS – Full Nelson (Album Review)

MASSIVE WAGONS – Full Nelson (Album Review)

Massive Wagons are indeed massive, in their hometown of Carnforth in the northwest of England. So much so, that their loyal band of followers organized a huge mural of the cover of their forthcoming album, Full Nelson to be painted on a wall in the nearby town of Lancaster. On hearing the record I’m not surprised. This album is brim-full of top quality tracks. It rocks, it rolls, has variety, emotion and, in no small…

MATTERHORN – Crimes of Man (Album Review)

Here at the Decibel Geek/CGCM Podcast headquarters, I get inundated with album promos for review. I don’t even read the bios anymore.

This debut album released independently back in April of 2018. And it’s a ripper! MATTERHORN – Bio Hailing…
