BUCKETS REBEL HEART – 20 Good Summers (Album Review)

BUCKETS REBEL HEART – 20 Good Summers (Album Review)

I first heard of guitarist Dave “Bucket” Colwell with the release of Bad Company’s Company of Strangers in 1995. I’ve always felt like that was a highly underrated album. He also spent time in Humble Pie. So, being familiar with some of his work, I was excited to see he is putting out a new album, 20 Good Summers, with his new band, Buckets Rebel Heart. Buckets Rebel Heart is Colwell, former 720 and New…

Progsters Lifesigns have stopped that happening by doing three shows in the Scotland, including one in the village/town of Kinross!

SLAYER – Birmingham Arena, UK (Concert Review)

SLAYER – Birmingham Arena, UK (Concert Review)

To say I was excited about this gig is a vast understatement, having seen Slayer and Anthrax multiple times previously. Going back 30 years for both bands and never being disappointed, I expected a lot from tonight.  After all, we were saying goodbye to one of the most iconic metal bands ever. OBITUARY Obituary, the Florida death metal veterans, play a deep, dark and growling set to get everyone in this packed arena warmed up. …

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

UK based Swedish singer Mia Klose first came to my attention thanks to Sweden Rock Festival. In 2013 I made my inaugural trek trans-Atlantic to attend my first Sweden Rock, not my last! Prior to departing Toronto for the adventure, I performed my due diligence on many, many bands of the 80 act roster that were completely unknown to me. Sadly, I found little to nothing on Mia Klose in the way of albums for…
