JEAN BEAUVOIR – Rock Masterpieces Volume 1 (Album Review)

JEAN BEAUVOIR – Rock Masterpieces Volume 1 (Album Review)

Jean Beauvoir has a CV as long as your arm but if you haven’t heard of him then you’ll surely recognize him. His famous mohawk is as recognizable as Eddie the ‘Ead or Angus Young in his school uniform. Beauvoir has performed with bands such as Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul along with punk legends The Plasmatics as well as fronting his own bands, Crown of Thorns and Voodoo X plus numerous solo…

LITTLE CAESAR – Live In Sweden (Concert Review)

LITTLE CAESAR – Live In Sweden (Concert Review)

A mathematical thing. 30 years. Over 10 failed attempts. 4 different countries. What does it add up to? 1000’s of tears. Tonight, I cried. I openly wept warm salty tears of disbelief and happiness. After approximately 30 years and over 10 false starts, I finally witnessed Little Caesar live. Little Caesar hit the music scene in 1989 with their self-titled debut and the cover of Aretha‘s “Chain of Fools”. I’ve followed the band since then, almost 30…

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Day Two (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Day Two (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL While obviously paramount, every festival is about more than the music. The social aspect and expanding your worldwide network of like-minded friends has to come into play somewhere as well. Also eating, that’s important too! This means at a jam-packed event like the Legions of Metal II Festival, it is inevitable that you will not see some of the acts on stage. Also, I did not enjoy every band I…

STRYPER – God Damn Evil (Album Review)

STRYPER – God Damn Evil (Album Review)

I am not a religious fanatic.  I am not a devil worshipper (although I have partaken in many of his sanctioned activities).  I’ve been deemed a gift from heaven (never mind that the person was very drunk). I’ve been called the Anti-Christ (which may be a bit more accurate, but I had just terminated that person’s employment). You could easily hear me singing at the top of my lungs (in my car… in the key…

MINISTRY – AmeriKKKant – (Album Review)

 Historical background                                                                                The first time I heard the band Ministry was in a club. I remember thinking how intense and how angry it sounded both musically and vocally. The song which I came to find out…

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH – And Justice For None (Album Review)

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH – And Justice For None (Album Review)

Ladies and gentlemen, from Las Vegas, Nevada please welcome Five Finger Death Punch. With a name like that, that’s how they need to be introduced in my opinion. Now I am not a huge fan of this band, I sometimes find the dulcet tones of frontman Ivan Moody a bit of an annoyance but you can’t dispute the fact that they have put some great tracks together over the years and live they are a…

SEVENDUST – All I See Is War (Album Review)

SEVENDUST – All I See Is War (Album Review)

Atlanta, Georgia’s own Sevendust are a band that I think are criminally underrated. For a band that are 12 (yes I said 12) albums into their career and not only that but they are 12 immensely good albums with well-written songs and great musicianship they always seem to miss the boat when it comes to hitting the next tier which would push them to the top of the pile. They are practically unknown in most…

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Pre-Party (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL II FESTIVAL – Pre-Party (Festival Report)

The 2018 Legions of Metal II Festival was a complete and total no-brainer for me. Last year I attended the event mostly because my beloved Lady Beast was on the roster. Who’s kidding who…if not for that, the event may have flown under my radar forever! 2017 brought some troubled times for me personally, but you can read my account of this much needed at the time musical getaway here: LEGIONS OF METAL 2017. And…

MISSION IN BLACK – Anthems Of A Dying Breed (Album Review)

MISSION IN BLACK – Anthems Of A Dying Breed (Album Review)

During a lengthy intro, “Premonition of Chaos”, which I’m not a fan of in any instance really, a deep booming voice invades the eardrums. The voice proclaims “…They’re on a mission and their mission is black!” And then Anthems of a Dying Breed literally erupts with “Welcome to the Apocalypse”. Like an exploding volcano spewing its hot molten lava from the pinnacle flowing down on the villagers below. The repetitive grinder of a riff is…
