Buried Treasure – A Bustle In Your Hedgerow

Buried Treasure – A Bustle In Your Hedgerow

Andrew Jacobs here, Down was a heavy metal supergroup formed in the early 1990s and consisting of Philip Anselmo (Pantera, Superjoint Ritual and literally a million others) on vocals, Pepper Keenan (Corrosion Of Conformity) on guitar, Kirk Windstein & Todd Strange (Crowbar) on guitar & bass respectively and Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod) on drums (Todd Strange was later replaced by Pantera bassist Rex Brown).  Many of you are probably most familiar with Down from their 1995…

Buried Treasure – American Hi-Fi’s self titled debut

Buried Treasure – American Hi-Fi’s self titled debut

Andrew Jacobs here, Seeing as how Wally just posted about Rockhead and Bob Rock, I figured that I’d do a post on one of my favorite (and one of the least heard) Bob Rock produced albums, the 2001 self titled debut by American Hi-Fi.  Although this is American Hi-Fi’s most popular album, I’m guessing that there aren’t very many of you who have heard it.  Well all I have to say is if you’re a…

Buried Treasure – Rockhead

Buried Treasure – Rockhead

Most of you are probably aware of Bob Rock. The Canadian record producer that has worked on albums such as “Dr. Feelgood”, “Slippery When Wet”, Metallica’s “Black” album and of course his big screen role in Metallica’s “Some Kind of Monster” movie. Not exactly a shabby resume. Certainly most of the albums Bob Rock has worked on would never  be considered for a “Buried Treasure” column, except for maybe one. 1992’s Rockhead album by the band…

Buried Treasure – Steve Jones’ Fire And Gasoline

Andrew Jacobs here, Although my last post was a bit of a tongue in cheek response to Wally’s “Buried Treasure – BOD!” post, I do think that his idea of showcasing overlooked albums is a damn good one, so I figured that I’d post a serious one. As you’re all well aware at this point, I’m a HUGE Steve Jones fan.  His work in the Sex Pistols alone makes him one of my favorite guitarists…

Buried Treasure – BOD!

Buried Treasure – BOD!

Welcome to the first ever “Buried Treasure” column where I will dig through my CD collection in search of albums that deserve a little time in the spotlight for one reason or another. I would love to see this column go completely “interactive”. So to the Decibel Geeks that might be reading this, it would be awesome if you would dig out an album of yours that you feel is worth sharing with friends, maybe…

The Death of a WARLOCK Brings the Birth of a Metal Goddess

The Death of a WARLOCK Brings the Birth of a Metal Goddess

Way back in 1987 I was a fourteen-year-old kid starting to discover the pleasing sounds of non-radio played rock, usually introduced to us by my friend’s older brother.  We ate it up each time he would give us a new record or cassette to check out, bands that we’d never heard of, records often filled with fear invoking images, we liked the shock factor.  When Warlock’s Triumph & Agony was left in the living room…
