LAST BULLET – 80-69-64 EP (Album Review)

“When we hit the stage we make it our responsibility to get your hips shaking, your heart racing and your head banging.”  These Canadian rockers have been around for seven years….I am afraid I know little more than that.  I know they are made up of Bryan Fontez, Brenden Armstrong, Michael Silva, Will Shannon, Chris Galaz, but have no idea who plays what…Maybe update your bio guys? Anyway, regardless of who does what, this EP…

Not many bands make it to 18 albums. It takes a combination of longevity and releasing albums consistently. Bands that have made this pinnacle include the Rolling Stones, KISS, Black Sabbath and Scorpions. But, many of your favorite bands haven’t reached it (and probably won’t) like Aerosmith, AC/DC and ZZ Top. Well, you can now add Cheap Trick to the 18-timers club with their latest CD, We’re All Alright! If you’re going to name your…

42 DECIBEL – Overloaded (Album Review)

42 DECIBEL – Overloaded (Album Review)

Make no mistake, when you listen to 42 Decibel, you know what you’re going to get: heavy, bluesy riffs, shredding lead guitar and a rock solid rhythm section. With they’re newest CD, Overloaded, they take it to another level. The name is intentional as the goal was to push their equipment to its limits. Yet, they maintain enough control of their sound so that it doesn’t muffled. With the exception of the opening track, “Whiskey…

HELL’S BELLS + WHISKEY LIES at The Globe, Cardiff (Concert Review)

“It was one of those nights, when you turned off the lights and everything came into view“…It was actually a crushing night where two great bands tore down a sold out hot sweatbox of a venue in Cardiff (UK) called The Globe. The two bands couldn’t have been different, in that one, Whiskey Lies, are a local rock band playing originals and Hells Bells are a veteran tribute act for the mighty AC/DC.  Regardless, this…

HARDBONE – Tailor Made (Album Review)

HARDBONE – Tailor Made (Album Review)

Well, it happens every year after issuing Decibel Geek’s Top Ten Albums. I’m again listening to albums for the first time that perhaps should have been considered. Here’s another one, Hardbone‘s Tailor Made. Would it have made the list? I don’t think so, but it should have at least been considered as it would have surely placed in the top twenty. In any case, I only experienced my first listen today, New Year’s Day. Furthermore…
