EVIL-LŸN – Disciple Of Steel (Album Review)

EVIL-LŸN – Disciple Of Steel (Album Review)

EVIL-LŸN – Disciple Of Steel. That have any other folks thinking of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? C’mon, what 10-year-old boy didn’t watch that classic cartoon? But we are of course talking about a metal band and not cartoon here on Decibel Geek. I could not discern if the band is actually named with that character in mind, but it could possibly be her depicted in the intricate cover art. In any case,…

VIXEN – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

VIXEN – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL has always been about the music. That’s what got me trekking across the oceans that first time six long years back now. I’ve not missed one since and don’t plan on it anytime soon. The magical music performances are what does it. Sometimes it’s a long defunct band enticed back to the stage by SRF organizers. But sometimes it’s just an old favorite ripping it up in a new setting. That was…

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA – Sometimes The World Ain’t Enough (Album Review)

The story so far…. The Night Flight Orchestra (NFO for short) are what happens when members of various metal bands in Sweden decide to have a bit of fun. Founded by 2 members of Soilwork (Bjorn Strid vocals and David Andersson guitar) back in 2007 due to an idea they had whilst in the US.

VON BALTZER – Cultural Daze (Album Review)

VON BALTZER – Cultural Daze (Album Review)

I have absolutely no idea how Von Baltzer got their name, and while that may be interesting, it is highly irrelevant. What I can confirm is that they are a Scandinavian band consisting of four experienced musicians who have got it together to produce their debut album, entitled Cultural Daze. Von Baltzer consist of guitarists Christian Kjellström (Atlantis, RockXPress), Erik Palmqvist (Pork from Cork Ireland, Mickey Slim Band), vocalist Ian Parry (Rock Emporium, Consortium Project,…

WAYLAND – Rinse and Repeat (Album Review)

WAYLAND – Rinse and Repeat (Album Review)

Wayland is a band I’ve attempted to see live over the last few years when they play Denver but they have evaded me every time. Sneaky bastards. Wayland is based in Michigan but seem to play in Colorado every 4-6 months. General bullshittery or a last minute conflict has always rock-blocked me. I discovered Wayland by seeing their name listed on tour promotions with Bobaflex and others. I always research bands on a tour if…

AGRONA – Realm Of The Fallen – Album Review

AGRONA – Realm Of The Fallen – Album Review

      Welsh death metal band Agrona blast onto the scene and lays devastation in its wake. Well, that’s what the headlines should read. It’s about time a band of this genre stepped up to become the new Cannibal Corpse. The band recently signed up to British label UKEM Records and got straight to work on their first full-length album Realm Of The Fallen. They may look a grim bunch, their faces emblazoned with corpse…

BULLET – A Sweden Rock Festival Anticipation Blog (Festival Blog)

BULLET – A Sweden Rock Festival Anticipation Blog (Festival Blog)

Who knows where I crossed paths with Bullet. The internet can be a wondrous place of musical discovery sometimes. Quickly collecting the catalog at the time, I voraciously devoured the oft compared to AC/DC-like outputs. Pre-ordering and waiting for delivery of Full Pull, Bullet‘s 2012 release. There’s nothing like getting one of those packages in the mailbox! Bullet originally formed in Vaxjo Sweden in 1996 comprised of Dag “Hell” Hofer (vocals), Adam Hector (bass), Gustav…
