UNLEASH THE ARCHERS – Apex (Album Review)

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS – Apex (Album Review)

Prepare to get your head blown off (in the very best way) by this powerhouse vocalist, Brittney Slayes, and her melodic power metal quintet. Hailing from Victoria, British Columbia, Unleash the Archers are quickly reminding me of all the reasons I have a love for this type of music. I wouldn’t consider this to be death metal at all (although some have used that reference), this band is a super talented, melodic speed metal band…

AMERICAN BOMBSHELL – No Regrets (Album Review)

AMERICAN BOMBSHELL – No Regrets (Album Review)

After reading my review of the Junkyard/Little Caesar show, I was contacted by Steve Boyles from American Bombshell. He had read that I had missed their set, in Indy, and offered to send me a CD. I gladly accepted and offered to review it, thinking it was the least I could do. Immediately I thought “CRAP!! I hope I like it!!” The last time I gave a non-favorable review, Rich “The Meister” Dillon, and I, got death…

JUNKYARD and LITTLE CAESAR Live in Indy (Concert Review)

JUNKYARD and LITTLE CAESAR Live in Indy (Concert Review)

It’s funny how things work out sometimes. Every once in a while, all the pieces fall into place, and something really cool happens… Earlier this year, my husband’s favorite band, Junkyard, were announced to be playing at The Rockpile in Toronto. Since Chris (my husband) had been spending so much time in Canada, while we were working on my immigration to the US, and Junkyard being his favorite North American band, we figured it was a…

Rock n’ Skull 2016 Final Day…Finally.

Rock n’ Skull 2016 Final Day…Finally.

Finally, we come to the final day at Rock n’ Skull Festival 2016. It’s taken quite awhile to get to this point in the story, but here we go! After our now standard routine of hotel breakfast and returning to the odorous room to kill time before the venue, we prepared for the final day. This day was to be the shortest at Rock n’ Skull 2016, having less bands than on previous days. The leader…

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF – Pre-Party

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF – Pre-Party

…and we’re off! Rock n’ Skull 2016 is well under way and we’re off on a high note after the pre-party! The journey was a little rough as we departed Shawn “Animalize” Irwin‘s house in Oshawa Ontario at 2am. Roaddog The Meister probably had the worst of it. He was at the Tracii Guns show at the Rockpile Toronto on Tuesday night. Then proceeded to go basically straight to work for a 16hr day to turn…

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Let me tell you, I for one would rather attend the smaller festivals (although the bigger events can be awesome as well). Most times they are in a club or medium sized venue and are general admission. This affords much better views of the stage and overall experiences to the concert goer rather than a huge stadium and assigned seating. It’s also not unusual to find members of bands mingling with rock fans and watching their…

An adventure in golfing with the Decibel Geek Squad. “Where’s my ball?” “Was my head up?” “Did you see where my ball went?” “Was my head up that time?” “I think my head was definitely up because I saw where the ball went.” “Where’s my effing ball?” “I was sure I didn’t have my head up that time!” “Did I have my head up, that time?” “…Where’s the beer cart!!!!!!!” And so begins round two…

DWaRf On Golf: Rock Against Hunger Charity Tournament

DWaRf On Golf: Rock Against Hunger Charity Tournament

As nervous as I was when the day approached I was also excited beyond belief, I knew it would be a great day! Turns out that it more than exceeded my expectations. I’m speaking of the KiLLeR DWaRfS Rock Against Hunger Charity Golf Tournament on September 24, 2015. The Canadian heavy metallers decided to host this event to support the “Feed the Need in Durham” food bank, joining them in the fight against hunger. Decibel Geek…
