THE DEAD DAISIES – Burn It Down (Album Review)

THE DEAD DAISIES – Burn It Down (Album Review)

The Dead Daisies were an interesting musical force for me when I first heard about them a good while back. Me personally, I love a good supergroup, sometimes they can be messy but when they work they lay waste to other bands before them. They came to my attention back when Australian rock singer John Stevens (former singer with Noiseworks and INXS) was then fronting the band. It’s a shame he left because he has…

TOMORROW’S OUTLOOK – A Voice Unheard (Album Review)

TOMORROW’S OUTLOOK – A Voice Unheard (Album Review)

Tomorrow’s Outlook formed in 2007 in Sørvik, Troms County, Norway. That’s Arctic Northern Norway. Sounds way too cold for this Canadian Metalhead! The original formation saw songwriter Trond Nicolaisen and bassist/songwriter Andreas Stenseth joining forces. In present times as of 2018 the core line-up duo has added guitarist Øystein K. Hanssen. The boys take their time on creating an album. Since inception, Tomorrow’s Outlook has issued only one album, the full-length 34613 in February of…

WHITE FOXX – Come Pet The Foxx (Album Review)

WHITE FOXX – Come Pet The Foxx (Album Review)

Are you familiar with bands like Cinderella, Britny Fox, Tangier and Heaven’s Edge? Ever heard of White Foxx? You will probably say yes to the first question and there is a high probability you will say no to the second. Still, there are a lot of similarites between all these bands which shared musical vision, played the same club circuit and even shared lots members. White Foxx played an important part in Philadelphia’s metal scene…

AMORETTES – Born To Break (Album Review)

AMORETTES – Born To Break (Album Review)

High expectations don’t scratch the surface of my anticipation of the forthcoming effort from The Amorettes – Born To Break. Their previous release, White Hot Heat in 2016 found its way into my best 10 albums of the year. And I still spin it from time to time. Great gym workout tunes. Fast furious and simple. If AC/DC were female. It is said that they are “like Airbourne with Joan Jett as a front woman”…

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – Stone Temple Pilots (Album Review)

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – Stone Temple Pilots (Album Review)

Stone Temple Pilots first run with new vocalist Jeff Gutt finally sees the light of day but will the comparisons be true? Is this just another guy that sounds like late frontman Scott Weiland? I hope not. To be honest, when I first heard they had picked up a singer from much-hated music talent show American Idol I wasn’t expecting much. The bar was pretty low to start but it seems they had grown a…

STEEL CITY – Fortress (Album Review)

STEEL CITY – Fortress (Album Review)

OUT f’n Standing! That is pretty much my entire review of the debut album entitled Fortress from Ohio based rockers Steel City. If you are searching for a melodic pop metal masterpiece, you just found it. After just one listen, Fortress is flirting with my top spot on my Best of 2018 list. It’s that fucking good, no joke. About a month ago, I was invited to come “like” the Steel City Facebook page. Always open…

DEMONS SING OF THE END – Take Life By The Throat And Scream (Album Review)

DEMONS SING OF THE END – Take Life By The Throat And Scream (Album Review)

When I hear the phrase “one-man band” I always think of Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Yeah, I’m weird. Well, it ain’t ole Dick here, that’s for sure. Welcome to Demons Sing Of The End, a one-man band from London, UK. Created and helmed by Rob Lewis who carries out all aspects of writing and recording. While the band’s moniker is quite the mouthful, the debut album’s title, Take Life By The Throat And…

NIGHTBREAK – Wicked Angel (Album Review)

NIGHTBREAK – Wicked Angel (Album Review)

Coming out of The Bronx New York City New York we have Nightbreak. Personally, I’m a little confused about this release. It arrived to me via download and came with no information. No worries I’m internet savvy. But I uncovered some conflicting info. According to the Encyclopaedia Metallum website, Nightbreak issued a demo in 2017 titled Wicked Angel. While that demo listed there displays the same title and cover art attached to my download, I…

MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST – Resurrection (Album Review)

MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST – Resurrection (Album Review)

So it seems Michael Schenker got together with ex-vocalists of the Michael Schenker Group namely Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet, and Robin McCauley. Add in a touch of Michael Shenker Group bassist Chris Glen, guitarist/keyboardist Steve Mann, and drummer Ted McKenna. Throw in Temple of Rock singer Doogie White and a tour spawned an album. The tour has now materialized into a full-on album with another guest appearance from Metallica‘s Kirk Hammet and altogether you have…

SALTY DOG – Lost Treasure (Album Review)

SALTY DOG – Lost Treasure (Album Review)

Sometimes albums and/or songs just stay with you. For almost 30 years even. That’s the case with a song called “Come Along” from a band called Salty Dog. Ever since I first heard the track, probably on the radio back in those days, it appealed to me. Once acquiring the Every Dog Has Its Day album on cassette, it was hard to switch it out of the car’s tape deck. A one and done kinda…
