Kyng For A Day Or Two. Or Longer.

Kyng For A Day Or Two.  Or Longer.

“There are little gems all around us that can hold glimmers of inspiration.” – Richelle Mead I had already placed Kyng on my list of bands important to rock’s future well before their Bass player Tony Castaneda sold me a t-shirt.  The bass player in my own band said they were right up my alley a few years prior.  So while I didn’t show up to the Minneapolis night club First Avenue in mid October…

JESUS CHRYSLER – Make Bold Statements… (Album Review)

JESUS CHRYSLER – Make Bold Statements… (Album Review)

One of the many ways that the Decibel Geek Podcast has enriched my life, other than laughter, is the discovery of new music and bands. I’d like to take a few words here to discuss and/or introduce you to a band. A member of this band was beyond kind enough to send me a sweet care package through the snail mail quite awhile back. It contained all 4 of their albums and a t-shirt! Very…

Diamond Lane (Rocklahoma 2016 Spotlight)

Diamond Lane (Rocklahoma 2016 Spotlight)

Having been introduced to Diamond Lane thanks to a past episode of the Decibel Geek Podcast, they were a clear target for me at Rocklahoma. Podcast hosts Chris and Aaron spun “The Enemy” from the Terrorizer CD during the second edition of the Fresh Blood Podcasts (Fresh Blood Vol. 2-Episode #150) . That sent me on a search for the album, which resulted in a download purchase of Terrorizer. I have enjoyed the 2014 released album immensely,…

Rocklahoma 2016 and Decibel Geek

Rocklahoma 2016 and Decibel Geek

Several years ago I made the bold decision that I wanted to experience a festival of the highest order. Believing that we here in North America just don’t know how to put on a tip-top rock festival the way they do in Europe, I immediately discounted any North American Festivals and set my sights on the Sweden Rock Festival in early June in Solvesborg, Sweden. Don’t get me wrong, there are some good festivals over…

Lady Beast in Canada (Concert Review)

“The metal cuts our hearts but we bleed together. It now bonds us forever and ever. I pilot this machine, it’s powered by dreams! Together we will live our destiny…Our Heavy Metal Destiny!” – Lady Beast **Decibel Geek readers and listeners may be familiar with the name Lady Beast. Their 2015 album, rather inventively titled Lady Beast II, was reviewed here by The Meister (Lady Beast Cooks Up a Delicious NWOBHM Feast), who also caught them…

Album Review: Black Trip Shadowline

Album Review: Black Trip Shadowline

Not quite a year ago I was first introduced to the band Black Trip on episode 162 of the Decibel Geek Podcast (Episode #162-Fresh Blood Vol. #3). Podcasts do sell albums because from that introduction I immediately went out (by “out” I mean went to my Decibel Geek Amazon page) and got their first album, Goin’ Under. I was not disappointed. Black Trip‘s sound is somewhere between the first Iron Maiden album, old Black Sabbath, and early AC/DC guitar riffs. Shadowline does not deviate from this…

Wilson – Right To Rise Album Review

Wilson – Right To Rise Album Review

Detroit Michigan is responsible for a lot of rock n roll. It is Detroit Rock City after all.  One of the Motor City’s latest rock n roll exports is the quintet Wilson. Wilson first came on my radar during a discussion with Marty McCoy of Bobaflex. When I told him I was going to be covering Crobot at the same club his eyes grew wide and he interjected that I had to check out Wilson. “Wilson? …
