You see last year was the first time that our very own Rockin’ Ron Runyon ventured beyond the borders of the United States. This brought the discovery of his directional challenge issues. I mean, the guy got lost trying to exit the Toronto airport during his layover. Yes, that’s right not lost in the city, lost in the…

MAGNUM – Lost On The Road To Eternity (Album Review)

It has been 46 years since the birth of British rockers, Magnum. In their infancy, it was not an easy task for founding members Tony Clarkin (guitar, songwriter) and Bob Catley (vocals) in keeping their dream alive. After playing in clubs and releasing a single in 1975, their ascent to fame did not begin until 1977 when (still without a record label) they opened for Judas Priest. Finally in 1978, as a five-piece outfit, they signed with…

LEAVES’ EYES – Sign Of The Dragonhead (Album Review)

LEAVES’ EYES – Sign Of The Dragonhead (Album Review)

Leaves’ Eyes was formed in 2003 by Norwegian vocalist Liv Kristine and German singer Alexander Krull. I would describe the band as symphonic metal with a taste of Viking/Pagan/Celtic and folk. In 2018 they will release their seventh studio album, Sign Of The Dragonhead, their first with new singer Elina Siirala who joined in early 2016 after the departure of founding member Kristine. I have been lucky enough to get my hands on an early…
