BULLET – Live (Album Review)

BULLET – Live (Album Review)

Bullet is a straight-ahead AC/DC-style Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band from Vaxjo, Sweden. Originally culminating in 1996, the current roster sees Dag “Hell” Hofer (vocals), Adam Hector (bass), Gustav Hjortsjo (drums), Hampus Klang (guitars) and Alexander Lyrbo (guitars). One of my early articles, when I started out writing for Decibel Geek, was a piece on Bullet. Discovering them somehow not too long before that, I loved the band and everything I’d heard. I guess I just…

BEXATRON – Rivoli Toronto (Concert Review)

Since first hearing the album’s lead-off track, “Get Out of My Tree”, it’s catchy hum along chorus will not leave my grey matter. The album arrived at the doorstep of CGCM Central and our staff writer and all-around good guy Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall jumped on an album review. Check it out here: Bexatron – Hey You (Album Review). Less than two weeks later Bexatron have hit Canadian soil and I was fortunate enough to catch…

GREEN JELLŸ – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Sometimes it’s good to try new things. Get out of your comfort zone. I did just that at Sweden Rock 2019. All hell-bent for leather on seeing Saxon on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at the festival, that plan dissipated surprisingly easy. It was suggested to me that “you’ve seen Saxon many times”. Indeed I have, in fact just recently on Monsters of Rock Cruise. “And you’ll see them again”. Most probably, I will, yes. “But…

BURNING WITCHES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Once again the first band of the day proves how Sweden Rock should be started! They again, like The Wild! yesterday, hold the “Best Band of the Day” title! I present Burning Witches, a quintet of ladies hailing from Switzerland. Springing to life (or wisping out of a cauldron perhaps), Burning Witches started out in 2015. These “witches” specialize in true Heavy Metal/Speed Metal and the coven already possesses two albums in the catalogue. The…

BARSTOOL PROPHETS – Crank (Retro Review)

BARSTOOL PROPHETS – Crank (Retro Review)

Ever get tired of nothing but “new” music? Don’t get me wrong, I love discovering new bands, awesome new songs, and albums, but sometimes the old favourites from days gone by get lost in the shuffle. And, subsequently forgotten. With the sheer influx of pre-release promos I receive from companies and outlets around the world, I fall into this trap all too often. But sometimes you uncover a forgotten gem. You see, I have a…

LICENCE – Never 2 Old 2 Rock (Album Review)

LICENCE – Never 2 Old 2 Rock (Album Review)

Sequels are exciting, especially if you hold the original in high regard. But sequels can also often be disappointing compared to the original. The biggest exception to that is, of course, the film Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. In 2017 I discovered (thanks to a promo company) a band called LICENCE and their Licence 2 Rock debut album. You can read my review on that release posted on the Decibel Geek website here: LICENCE…

The Wild! _ Sweden Rock 2019. Canada’s THE WILD! truly are a force to reckon with. They’ve grown a lot in popularity and recognition with good reason, but there’s still so very many not in the know. The band, based out of Kelowna, B.C. launched in 2012. Releasing their first video in 2014 for the song “Roadhouse” brought them airplay on Canadian rock radio. That video going viral brought tours with the likes of Korn,…
