SPARKY’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

SPARKY’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

Over here in the UK, 2018 has not proved to be our greatest year. In fact, it’s been a bit of a shitstorm, or clusterfuck if you like, politically at least. The possibility of Brexit has brought everything many predicted; uncertainty, division, and hostility. Fortunately for everybody, rock keeps on rollin’ and there have been some great albums released this year. Contrary to popular opinion (well, one guy, anyway) rock is not actually dead. This…

MEISTER’S Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

MEISTER’S Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

The time of year has once again rolled around and is fast closing in. I feel suffocated, drowning. Like caught in the garbage compactor with Luke, Leia, Chewie, and Han I feel the walls closing in. This is for me the most difficult time of year and hardest Decibel Geek task to perform. A top ten is simply not enough for me. I need a top 30…or even 50 would be great! But alas, it…

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”…

Metal Mama’s Top 10 Albums of 2016

Wow! What a year for music! It was my privilege to become a part of the Decibel Geek family in 2016 and I have enjoyed every moment of it. From major label releases to independent and crowd funded projects, hard rock and heavy metal bands had a variety to share with us. There were so many outstanding albums this year, in fact, that choosing a top ten list was a monumental task. There were several…

AMORETTES – White Hot Heat (Album Review)

AMORETTES – White Hot Heat (Album Review)

Scottish hard rock, all-female trio, The Amorettes have recently issued their third album offering. Titled White Hot Heat, the album was available June 27, 2016, via Off Yer Rocka Records. And what a foot stomping, head banging, fist pumping barn burner it is! This third full-length record follows the debut, 2010’s Haulin’ Ass, and 2015’s Game On. Produced by Chris Tsangarides, Game On has been in my collection since shortly after its release. Unfortunately, it never…
