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. Which of course was getting progressively worse as the festival wore on. By this point on Sunday, I was struggling. I decided to slow things down a little whilst still trying to hopefully give a full and inclusive review of the event. I…

BLACK KING COBRA – Law Of Attraction (EP Review)

BLACK KING COBRA – Law Of Attraction (EP Review)

When writing for Decibel Geek, I am sometimes contacted regarding new or upcoming bands. What is occasionally annoying is when one of them is pretty local and has played one of my home town’s venues not so long ago and I missed them. However, as they say “better late than never”. 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…

Be sure to check out the Decibel Geek website contributor’s collective compilation of the top albums: Best of 2017 Article A little bit about the choices that made my top 10. In a year where there were many excellent new releases from older artists to younger bands and across different rock styles it was difficult to pin down an exact ten. Within the ten there is quite a bit of progressive music, not only as…

Be sure to check out the Decibel Geek website contributor’s collective compilation of the top albums: Best of 2017 Article Every year I think these top ten lists will get easier, but they don’t – and that’s a good thing.

My First Time: A SWEDEN ROCK 2017 Retrospective (Blog)

This is about my first time…No, not THAT first time, that was already well documented in a letter to Penthouse Forum in the mid-80’s. I’m talking about my first time at the Sweden Rock Festival held June 7-10 2017 in Solvesborg, Sweden.

SARACEN Kills It At Brofest – (Concert Review)

SARACEN Kills It At Brofest – (Concert Review)

When taking a quick look at the bill at Brofest, Saracen might seem a little bit misplaced. These metal progrockers from Matlock, Derbyshire widely used keyboard as part of their sound from the very beginning and the approach is much more melodic than your usual NWOBHM band. The songs have a slight proggy touch but are very melodic and catchy. The Saracen gig was one of the anticipated highlights for me personally at Brofest. The…
