SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

“Generation”…(insert bassline here)….“Clash”. For those that have no clue what I am referring to in the previous sentence then you are missing out on one of the coolest songs from one of the most underrated albums to come out of the eighties. “Generation Clash” was the lead off single and video to Accept‘s 1989 Eat The Heat album. The video for this song was my introduction to vocalist David Reece who stepped in as replacement…

Conversation with JEFFREY McCORMACK of Q5 (Interview)

Conversation with JEFFREY McCORMACK of Q5 (Interview)

Growing up in Sweden in the 1980’s the only way to find new hard rock music was going down to the local music store and checking out the latest vinyl additions. Radio and TV did not play hard rock at all (except for one radio show every Saturday called Rockbox). There was hardly any newspapers or magazines covering this, by many deemed as a decadent and repulsive genre. It only fueled my interest in this…

Inside The Burn – CHEMICAL BURN Interview – Alexander Rowe

Inside The Burn – CHEMICAL BURN Interview – Alexander Rowe

The small town of Stratford, Ontario isn’t exactly renowned as a rock n roll town. That may be about to change as a four piece band calling themselves Chemical Burn are aiming to change all of that. I was introduced to Chemical Burn earlier this year courtesy of their most excellent Smoking Mirrors EP (see review click here) and on July 10th, I was fortunate enough to catch them live when they were support for 80’s…

But after listening to it a lot over the past couple of months, I say this band is a real shining light for US music. They have a new fan…

Apocalyptic Lovers – Interview (David Hope)

Once in a very long while, you get the chance to interview hot new bands who impress with their music.  Once such occasion was recently when I got the chance to discuss Apocalyptic Lovers with drummer/manager David Hope.  Their debut EP is called Redemption Volume 1 and is a fiery ball of classic rock that owes some of its sound to favourites such as Dokken, a link strengthened by their work with the legend that…
