KILLER BEE – Remember the Times (Album Review)

KILLER BEE – Remember the Times (Album Review)

Atmospheric beginnings leave way into the explosion of hard drumming and sweet guitar riffage that follow. That’s the start of the latest offering from the Swedish Canadian band Killer Bee and the lead track “Rockaholic”. The song rips along at a breakneck pace with almost thrash sensibilities underlying. That’s exactly how you open a fucking album! Way to grab my attention from the get-go Killer Bee! Due to hit shelves on February 8, 2019, is…

PAIN CITY – When Life Gets You (Album Review)

PAIN CITY – When Life Gets You (Album Review)

So, I’m a proper idiot sometimes! Listeners of the CGCM Audio Podcast Episodes are already aware of this, however! Let give a quick little backstory here. My email inbox is literally flooded daily with album promos, band news, video releases etc. Having a minor breakdown at the sheer overwhelmingness of it all, I started a massive campaign over the holidays. I spent hours upon hours quickly previewing and deleting emails. Usually if I see the…

METAL CHURCH – Damned If You Do (Album Review)

METAL CHURCH – Damned If You Do (Album Review)

On Pearl Harbor Day, 2018, iconic metal band Metal Church released their 12th studio album (and 5th with Mike Howe on vocals), Damned If You Do. The album continues right where 2016’s XI left off. If you are a fan of any of the albums that the band has recorded with Mr. Howe then you will be absolutely pleased with this release! This album sees the band with longtime W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland coming “Into…

THOSE DAMN CROWS – Murder and the Motive (Album Review)

THOSE DAMN CROWS – Murder and the Motive (Album Review)

The newest signings to Earache Records and the Welsh valleys newest export, Those Damn Crows sound nothing like their Welsh brothers Bullet For My Valentine or Funeral For a Friend. In fact, you wouldn’t pick them as a band from the town of Bridgend at all. No, this isn’t your usual screamo/metalcore we’ve all gotten used to from these parts, this is good old classic rock with an almost Southern tinge. First track “Don’t Give a Damn” starts off…

SNEW – You’ve Got Some Nerve (Album Review)

SNEW – You’ve Got Some Nerve (Album Review)

It’s not SNEW, s’old to me! Somehow, somewhere I came across the band SNEW and their 2008 CD SNEW You. I also crossed paths with the 2014 single “Thunderdog” or maybe that’s where it all started? No idea, but a great track in any case! Then while attending a pool party ahead of the Monsters of Rock Cruise in sunny Miami, SNEW CD’s were among the prize packs distributed to partygoers. Most folks were going…

DAMN DICE – Thriller Killer (Album Review)

DAMN DICE – Thriller Killer (Album Review)

Damn Dice kinda came at me from out of nowhere. Sure they contacted me through the Decibel Geek email board to submit their forthcoming Thriller Killer album for review. But I didn’t expect what I heard. I envisioned, for some reason, another 80s sound clone type band that never really quite reaches the target quality of that golden era. So many bands fall into this sub-par category if you ask me. Perhaps it’s because I…

ROADKILL – Ruled by Machines (Album Review)

ROADKILL – Ruled by Machines (Album Review)

In early January of last year (2017), I discovered a band, album, and song that got its hooks in deep. From the first “click” on the video suggestion that popped up in the sidebar while checking something else out on YouTube, I was hooked. I usually ignore those things, but for some reason, I clicked this time. The song was “Ready for War” from Hobart, Tasmania’s Roadkill. I reviewed the album, E X T I…

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

UK based Swedish singer Mia Klose first came to my attention thanks to Sweden Rock Festival. In 2013 I made my inaugural trek trans-Atlantic to attend my first Sweden Rock, not my last! Prior to departing Toronto for the adventure, I performed my due diligence on many, many bands of the 80 act roster that were completely unknown to me. Sadly, I found little to nothing on Mia Klose in the way of albums for…

VANDALLUS – Bad Disease (Album Review)

VANDALLUS – Bad Disease (Album Review)

Although the initial offering from Ohio’s Vandallus arrived in 2016, the band was unknown to me. That debut release, On The High Side, delivered by High Roller Records, completely slipped me by. Perhaps even more notable is that Vandallus contain members of thrash band Midnight. From Midnight, Shaun Vanek (guitars and vocals), and Steve Dukuslow (drums) hold down Vandallus as well. Rounding out the Vandallus camp is Jason Vanek (vocals, guitar), with Tyler Harvey (Deadiron)…
