ROADKILL – Ruled by Machines (Album Review)

ROADKILL – Ruled by Machines (Album Review)

In early January of last year (2017), I discovered a band, album, and song that got its hooks in deep. From the first “click” on the video suggestion that popped up in the sidebar while checking something else out on YouTube, I was hooked. I usually ignore those things, but for some reason, I clicked this time. The song was “Ready for War” from Hobart, Tasmania’s Roadkill. I reviewed the album, E X T I…

STRIKER / LUTHARO – Velvet Underground Toronto (Concert Review)

STRIKER / LUTHARO – Velvet Underground Toronto (Concert Review)

Unleash the Archers are coming to Toronto. Meh. Supporting them are Edmonton’s Striker. Now that I’m in for. A longtime fan, I’ve never seen Striker in concert as yet. Throw in local support Lutharo, who my friend Jamie O’Toole has been telling me I need to see since forever. I’ve traveled further and paid more just to see supports and openers! So, I find myself at Velvet Underground on Queen Street Toronto on a Monday…

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

UK based Swedish singer Mia Klose first came to my attention thanks to Sweden Rock Festival. In 2013 I made my inaugural trek trans-Atlantic to attend my first Sweden Rock, not my last! Prior to departing Toronto for the adventure, I performed my due diligence on many, many bands of the 80 act roster that were completely unknown to me. Sadly, I found little to nothing on Mia Klose in the way of albums for…

A proud supporter of British Rock Music, Cloven Hoof has gained a big following in the UK’s rock music scene. A week or so ago I found myself in London, UK. It was a “make the best of a bad situation” deal, where I was unable to obtain refunds for trans-Atlantic flights…

VANDALLUS – Bad Disease (Album Review)

VANDALLUS – Bad Disease (Album Review)

Although the initial offering from Ohio’s Vandallus arrived in 2016, the band was unknown to me. That debut release, On The High Side, delivered by High Roller Records, completely slipped me by. Perhaps even more notable is that Vandallus contain members of thrash band Midnight. From Midnight, Shaun Vanek (guitars and vocals), and Steve Dukuslow (drums) hold down Vandallus as well. Rounding out the Vandallus camp is Jason Vanek (vocals, guitar), with Tyler Harvey (Deadiron)…

SATAN – Cruel Magic (Album Review)

SATAN – Cruel Magic (Album Review)

“Are you familiar with Satan? No not the ruler of the Underworld but the band. Yes, there’s a band with that, perhaps very unfortunately so, choice of name that may have helped to contain them in obscurity for much of their career.” I wrote that as my opening line when reviewing SATAN – Atom By Atom in 2015. I stand by it now, approximately three years later. That very Atom By Atom release saw placement…

DREAM PATROL – Phantoms of the Past (Album Review)

DREAM PATROL – Phantoms of the Past (Album Review)

As a kid, I remember being excited to head over to my buddy’s house and watch restricted movies. Usually, action and/or horror films were the genres of choice and the A Nightmare On Elm Street series was a popular one. Receiving the album promo for DREAM PATROL – Phantoms Of The Past and reading that those films inspired their choice of moniker intrigued. DREAM PATROL – Info With band members from USA, Slovakia, Austria and…
