The Outer Ocean is the first release from High Roller Records artist VOJD. However, it was originally started as the third release from Swedish rockers Black Trip. Why change the name? Well after getting new drummer Anders Bentell and new guitarist Linus Bjorklund the remaining Black Trip members felt that with the new members and the new material it was time to start a new chapter. According to the band’s vocalist Joseph Tholl, VOJD is a much more…

TEQUILA SUNRISE – Danger Zone (Album Review)

Not too long ago I asked The Meister to surprise me and send me something I had not heard before. He came up with Spanish band Tequila Sunrise. Hailing from Madrid, Spain Tequila Sunrise to my recollection are the first all Spanish band I have listened to.  Well done sir! The band consists of Rubén Santos on drums, Ramón Blein guitar, Cecilio Sánchez-Robles guitar, Jorge Cortés vocals, and Jesús Acosta bass. I would call them a melodic…

NIGHT RANGER – Don’t Let Up (Album Review)

35 years and Night Ranger is stronger than ever! On March 24th 2017 the band saw the release of their twelfth studio album, Don’t Let Up, and believe me they do not let up! Night Ranger are known for their most popular song, the ballad “Sister Christian”. While the song was a career defining moment for the group, it also put them in the position of following it up. While they did that with the ballad,…

EDEN’S CURSE – Cardinal (Album Review)

EDEN’S CURSE – Cardinal (Album Review)

October 14th is the release date of AFM Records recording artist Eden’s Curse to release their latest album Cardinal. The band took three years to record the follow-up to 2013’s Symphony of Sin. The extra time was taken in an effort to do things properly and to explore every possible opportunity to make each song the best it could be while trying to create a heavier sound. They nailed it with Cardinal! All the songs are well crafted, with progressive…

MICHAEL SWEET- One Sided War (Album Review)

MICHAEL SWEET- One Sided War (Album Review)

Is there a harder working musician than Michael Sweet these days? Maybe there is, but I am hard-pressed to think of anybody that is. After all in a little less than three years he has recorded, or produced, or played on no less than seven albums. Being what I consider a quadruple threat, he is a great singer, guitar player, songwriter, and producer. His ability to put out dependable, great quality music is inspiring.  He…

Q5 – New World Order (Album Review)

Reviewing a new album from the band Q5 is not something I ever thought I would be able to do. After all, their last release was in 1986 and they have been disbanded since 1987. Thanks to a one-off request for a show at the Sweden Rock Festival in 2014 the band decided to reform, and thanks to Frontiers Records we now have a new Q5 album titled New World Order. Q5 originally was something of…
