AUTOGRAPH Photos – Monsters of Rock 2018 (Brian Ronald)

Decibel Geek‘s ace photographer Brian Ronald spent his time aboard the Monsters of Rock Cruise 2018 capturing as many fantastic performers in action as he could. In his first gallery of shots, he showcases Autograph as they rocked the Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas! The Southern California hard rock band delivered three albums, Sign In Please [1984], That’s The Stuff [1985], and Loud and Clear [1987] before disbanding in 1989. Returning in 2014 with original members Steve…

Gene Simmons Band Treats KISS Die-Hards in Boston

Gene Simmons Band Treats KISS Die-Hards in Boston

The Gene Simmons Band band blew minds last night at Lynn Auditorium near Boston; treating KISS die-hards to a dreamlike set list. The band has earned a reputation for delivering long hoped-for deep cuts but last night they truly upped the ante. The show started in typical fashion with the band charging through classics Deuce and Shout It Out Loud. The band then performed Are You Ready, a track from the Gene Simmons Vault box…

DEADLY CIRCUS FIRE – Edinburgh Opium (Concert Review)

DEADLY CIRCUS FIRE – Edinburgh Opium (Concert Review)

DEADLY CIRCUS FIRE The last time I saw Deadly Circus Fire was at Bloodstock Metal Festival, way back in 2011. If memory serves me correctly, it was the same year that I saw them at Hammerfest in Wales. Both times, I was mightily impressed. Therefore, I was delighted to find out that not only were they touring, but playing my home town in Edinburgh at a venue called Opium, a club/bar in the Cowgate area…

THERION – Glasgow Audio 2018 (Concert Review)

THERION – Glasgow Audio 2018 (Concert Review)

Metal opera legends Therion brought their show in support of the new three CD album (Beloved Antichrist) to Glasgow Audio, along with three supports for a night of metal, opera and craziness. MIDNIGHT ETERNAL When I arrived, the first band had started.  It was a very early start, with Midnight Eternal (a symphonic metal band from the USA) onstage at 6:30!  Singer Raine Hilai had a very nice voice and guitarist Richard Fischer does some…

The Spaceman ACE FREHLEY Visits NJ. (Concert Review)

The Spaceman ACE FREHLEY Visits NJ. (Concert Review)

I’m a late bloomer in the world of KISS. To be honest, I just didn’t get it when I was a kid. Mostly I’m amazed at the strong impressions the band has made on so many of my friends. And now I’m slowly coming to realize that they CAN actually play! Some of the great recent video from Gene‘s shows and the DVDs that I have borrowed show their true talent. So I was excited…

MICHALE GRAVES – Edinburgh 2018 (Concert Review)

MICHALE GRAVES – Edinburgh 2018 (Concert Review)

After something like a 15 to 20-year wait, Michale Graves is touring the UK. For many folk, certainly in Edinburgh, this was the first time seeing the man in action. Pleasingly the set gave us all the chance to hear some of the choice cuts of the two Misfits albums he sang on from the late 1990s. Those being American Psycho and Famous Monsters. However, he also gave us songs from some of his solo albums including…

ASKING ALEXANDRIA at the Myth Nightclub (Concert Review)

ASKING ALEXANDRIA at the Myth Nightclub (Concert Review)

I first heard of Asking Alexandria from a Revolver Magazine article with Sebastian Bach.  Shortly after that, I saw them play with Bas at the Golden Gods Awards.  I wouldn’t see them again until a couple years ago when I saw them twice on the Black Tour.  They are currently on the Resurrection Tour and I caught up with them at the Myth Nightclub in Maplewood, MN. Opening with the second track on their latest…

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY (Concert Review) – Denver 2017

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY (Concert Review) – Denver 2017

Corrosion of Conformity Concert Review:  COC kicked off their winter tour with Black Label Society at the Ogden Theatre on Wednesday, December 27th. The first time I heard “Albatross” I jumped and crashed through the third story window of Club Obi-Wan, landed in a 1934 Duesenberg Auburn convertible and instructed the underage Asian boy in the front seat to drive me to JR Records and Tapes to purchase COC‘s Deliverance album.  The boy introduced himself…

THE DARKNESS – Cardiff, Wales (Concert Review)

THE DARKNESS – Cardiff, Wales (Concert Review)

As concerts go this is definitely one of the most amusing and unusual I have had the pleasure to witness. After zipping across the world enclosed in a pressurized tin can shooting through the air at over 500 mph, I definitely needed something to relieve the pressure of a hard trip and The Darkness tonight were just the remedy to soothe my ills. I saw The Darkness around 4 months ago in Australia and knew they…
