The Meister’s 2015 M3 Experience: Day #2-The Evening of Saturday May 2, 2015 At Merriweather Post Pavilion …And here we go with the grand finale of my experiences at the 2015 M3 Festival in Columbia, Maryland.

I was awake and as refreshed as…

Rock Sugar Reimaginator Review

Rock Sugar Reimaginator Review

Ok, why did it take so long to join the party? To be honest, I’m new here. I have been listening to Rock Sugar for a couple years now and even at that I was late to the Rock Sugar party. These guys, voice actors and accomplished music engineering skills combined, have brought some great pop and rock tunes together as one! While the high note vocals are often the weak part in the “reimagining”…

Y&T At Pickle Park: Concert Review

Y&T At Pickle Park: Concert Review

I typically cringe when someone says a band is “underrated”.  In most cases it really just means the person saying it really likes a band that didn’t become Bon Jovi.  I really like Black N Blue.  For someone like me their first three records are a must for your collection.  But I have no problem understanding why they never became as big as Ratt or Motley Crue.  So when someone starts to explain to me how…

A metal band from the small rock of Gibraltar? Really? Yes, here you got it!

Last Autumn’s Dream Crank It Up To Eleven!

Last Autumn’s Dream Crank It Up To Eleven!

The flow of top quality melodic hard rock bands from the small country of Sweden never seems to end. Last Autumn’s Dream is a relatively “new” band but consists of veteran musicians that have achieved a fair deal of fame and fortune in other bands. A lot of bands exchange members in between each other, especially in the Swedish melodic hard rock scene, and it is hard to keep track on who´s in what band….
