Those Hosers are Fired! – Ep302

Those Hosers are Fired! – Ep302

The guys are back this week after realizing their Canadian friends were too busy with their own podcast to cover their normal Thanksgiving duties. For five years, Rich “Meister” Dillon and Wally “Gator” Norton devotedly filled in on the last week of Thanksgiving so Chris and Aaron could enjoy time with their families and celebrate their holiday. However, this year the calls and emails went unanswered and the guys were forced to go back out…

OZ – Transition State (Album Review)

OZ – Transition State (Album Review)

Transition State is an interesting name for this album from Finnish metallers OZ. This is their first album of all new songs in 31 years, so this particular state has been in some transition for many years. To maintain enough enthusiasm through all these years, it has taken some gumption and determination of the only remaining original member of OZ, drummer Mark Ruffneck. He is joined by Johnny Cross (guitar), Juzzy Kangas (guitar) and Peppi…

FIREFORCE – Annihilate the Evil (Album Review)

FIREFORCE – Annihilate the Evil (Album Review)

A hefty slab of Belgian power metal found within! Not knowing anything about Fireforce prior to receiving this album for review, I suspected its contents based on cover art. Always a lover of medieval and fantasy since my younger days, the dragon attacking a Viking warship appealed to me visually. A collection of rippingly thunderous power metal anthems await discovery within. Upon reading the included bio sheet in the press kit I found them to…

PHEAR Strikes at The Rockpile in Toronto (Concert Review)

Fear not my friends…metal flames burn brightly in Mississauga Ontario. The Toronto suburb is home to meal band Phear. Spelt with a “ph” like phat…meaning cool? Works for me. Nothing to be afraid of here despite what you may have heard on the CGCM Podcast about frontman Patrick Mulock being a scary guy. There may also have been other inappropriate chatter concerning genitalia. Those that know, know. Those that don’t…might want to maintain that blissful…

JASTA – The Lost Chapters (Album Review)

JASTA – The Lost Chapters (Album Review)

Jamey Jasta, heavy music’s chronic workaholic, releases another Jasta album, but is it as good as Hatebreed? “This Is Your Life“, the first track on the album, kicks off with a pounding drumbeat and revolving riff, before vocalist Jamey Jasta blasts in over the top. You can just imagine the live crowd, fists pumping and bodies hurling over the place when they play live. The chorus reminds me a bit of old Biohazard. That’s one…
