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…

The Mad Mad Ones – Down The Rabbit Hole (Album Review)

Wisconsin band The Mad Mad Ones describe themselves as “…a little bit old school Sabbath, a little bit punk, a little bit Indie, and a little bit alternative”, which is appropriate.  Formed in 2010, the band is made up of Ted Fox (Guitar/Vocals), Nick Bretl (Drums), Jeff Sandbom (Guitar) and Ryan Anderson (Bass).  They cite a slew of Stoner and Grunge bands as influences and their sound certainly echoes these influences, but in a unique…

Album Review: Prong – X- No Absolutes

Ten albums in and Prong have recorded their very own Master of Puppets or Reign in Blood, as this collection is a stone cold classic, mixing up every metal genre and busting down the walls with X-No Absolutes.  This could be the record that re-ignites the power of Prong, like the days of The Cleansing and the whole collection sounds classy, clear, aggressive and (gulp) thoughtful.  This seems to align to Tommy‘s comments about themes for…

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

1990.  For music it was year that in many ways was Lost in Limbo (Thanks Ace.)  Genre’s of rock were peaking, ending and just starting.  And no one knew.  It would be the pinnacle of Thrash metal, the roots of Grunge were starting to sprout and the good times for bands of the Hair Metal genre were concluding.  In a little over a year bands like Winger and Warrant would trade major success to be…
