LOOSE JETS – Loose Jets (Album Review)

LOOSE JETS (Bio) Loose Jets are the band assembled in 2015 of guitarists/vocalists Chad Heye, (formerly of the Needles) and James Sardone (formerly of Brickbat).  The band is rounded out with Chuck Spry on drums/vocals and Chris Bare on bass. Coming out of North Carolina, their sound is a mixture of 1970’s KISS or Angel with the best of the 1980’s Sunset Strip acts.  It is more diverse than you would first think, but the heart…

Deadheads are a four piece, high energy, rock and roll band from Sweden. They have released two full length albums and have toured all over Europe, playing together with bands like Imperial State Electric, Monster Magnet and Supersuckers .  It is nice that I have been able to check out this album, as the very first review I did for Decibel Geek was for their previous release Loadead in 2015. The latest release, This Goes…

DIRTBAG REPUBLIC – Downtown Eastside (Album Review)

DIRTBAG REPUBLIC – Downtown Eastside (Album Review)

Sometimes in life, you just need attitude to get ya through.  This attitude of screw it, I am going to get this done my way seeps through every pore of this second record from Canada’s own sleazy rockers, Dirtbag Republic.  The album cover sets the tone, with the woman standing near a junkie-looking dude, with her eyes blacked out (reminding me of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap by AC/DC). DIRTBAG REPUBLIC – Downtown Eastside Downtown…

CRIMSON STAR – Bay View (Album Review)

This life is full of surprises and can be gloriously optimistic.  Reviewers always need to keep an open mind and not pre-judge anything.  This release has blown me away and I had never heard of Crimson Star until this week!  The Meister (our esteemed Editor) asked me to take a listen and to see what I thought. The band are from Birmingham in the UK and were formed in late 2012.  They are comprised of James…

IRIS DIVINE – The Static And The Noise (Album Review)

“There is no justice…a court of lies“, so begins this fantastic release from the super talented three piece Iris Divine.  So, let the Decibel Geek Court take a look at the facts and reach its verdict – guilty!  Yes, guilty of producing an amazing chronicle of modern life through the prism of progressive metal. All the relevant musical evidence points to an electrifying mix of aggression, progression and possession.  The songs eat into your soul…

UNPARALLELED HEIGHT – Resurgence, Vol 1 (Album Review)

UNPARALLELED HEIGHT – Resurgence, Vol 1 (Album Review)

So you like metalcore riffing and the blast beats?  You love the aggression and technical chops, but you can’t stand the Cookie Monster vocals (as The Meister would say).  Unparalleled Height (UPH) have the answer (as did the late great Affiance) – get a fantastic singer in and utilise the growling sparingly! From the outskirts of Pittsburgh, these guys have released possibly my favorite EP of the year, so far.  This EP is made up…
