PAVLOV’S DOG – Prodigal Dreamer – (Album Review)

About The Band I was surprised when offered the chance to review a new album by Pavlov’s Dog as I hadn’t heard the name in many years and had no idea they were still going. Their last “new” album was over 8 years ago although there was one 4 or 5 years ago called The Pekin Tapes which was demo material from the early 70s. Checking things out there is only one original member in vocalist…

TWELFTH NIGHT – Sequences – (Album Review)

TWELFTH NIGHT – Sequences – (Album Review)

  The Back Story: For those of us who grew up during the early 80s and enjoyed what got called “neo-progressive rock” will remember a band called Twelfth Night from Reading in England. The first time I heard them was due to an instrumental album called Live At The Target which featured a near 20 minute musical piece called “Sequences” on side 2! Personally I thought it was amazing. Then a few years later I came…

UNEARTH – Extinction(s) (Album Review)

American metalcore legends Unearth are back with their seventh album Extinction(s) which the band describe as an album “full of venom toward the wrongs of the world, fighting back against the precarious position civilization is in, determined to effect some kind of change.” The inevitability of death, loss, and tragedy is a persistent theme throughout.

BLOODSTOCK 2018 – Sunday Review And Round Up (Festival Review)

For those who have been following my reviews of Bloodstock Metal Festival 2018 on behalf of Decibel Geek will know that I was bitten by an insect and my leg got infected.

BLACK KING COBRA – Law Of Attraction (EP Review)

When writing for Decibel Geek, I am sometimes contacted regarding new or upcoming bands.

This is the case with Glasgow based hard rockers Black King Cobra. I was lucky enough to be sent their new EP being released August…
