MATTERHORN – Crimes of Man (Album Review)

MATTERHORN – Crimes of Man (Album Review)

Here at the Decibel Geek/CGCM Podcast headquarters, I get inundated with album promos for review. I don’t even read the bios anymore. I just chance and click…if I don’t like it, another simple click stops the madness. Sometimes you win the lottery so to speak! And good morning Matterhorn – Crimes Of Man, nice to meet you! This debut album released independently back in April of 2018. And it’s a ripper! MATTERHORN – Bio Hailing…

HELL’S GAZELLES – Take Your Medicine (EP Review)

HELL’S GAZELLES – Take Your Medicine (EP Review)

When HELL’S GAZELLES – Take Your Medicine appeared in my promo downloads, I was instantly attracted to it. The album cover. The band name. They were simply intriguing and crying out for me to listen to it. On to the phone it went for sampling during the public transit commute to work. The EP played well over my headphones and I opened up the accompanying press release.  I was quite surprised to read that this…

DEE SNIDER – For the Love of Metal (Album Review)

I wasn’t sure just what to expect from Dee Snider, the Twisted Sister frontman with his new solo effort, For the Love of Metal. Let’s face it, I was slightly afraid. Afraid that it would be an awful record. But I’m happy to report that it’s just the opposite! Mr. Snider has come through with a bombastically heavy, fist-pumping release with For the Love of Metal. According to the press release sent along with the…

TRAITORS GATE – Fallen (Album Review)

I was excited to see this album promo arrive in my media download pool. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to spin it right away and it got put aside and forgotten with the travel of two weeks, two festivals in Sweden. The album was released by No Remorse Records on May 25, 2018. I present a wicked slab of NWOBHM with TRAITORS GATE – Fallen. TRAITORS GATE – History The band formed in the…

GIRLSCHOOL – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

GIRLSCHOOL – Sweden Rock Festival 2018 (Spotlight Review)

SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL has always been about the music. That’s what got me trekking across the oceans that first time six long years back now. I’ve not missed one since and don’t plan on it anytime soon. The magical music performances are what does it. Sometimes it’s a long defunct band enticed back to the stage by SRF organizers. But sometimes it’s just an old favorite ripping it up in a new setting. That was…

EVIL-LŸN – Disciple Of Steel (Album Review)

EVIL-LŸN – Disciple Of Steel (Album Review)

EVIL-LŸN – Disciple Of Steel. That have any other folks thinking of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? C’mon, what 10-year-old boy didn’t watch that classic cartoon? But we are of course talking about a metal band and not cartoon here on Decibel Geek. I could not discern if the band is actually named with that character in mind, but it could possibly be her depicted in the intricate cover art. In any case,…
