BABYLON A.D. Live at Rock n’ Skull (Rock n’ Skull Spotlight)

BABYLON A.D. Live at Rock n’ Skull (Rock n’ Skull Spotlight)

One of my friends introduced me to Babylon A.D.‘s self-titled debut in the early 1990´s. I was blown away by the heavy but yet so infectious and melodic sound. These guys wrote one anthem after another and the second album called Nothing Sacred was almost as strong as I was to find out. Unfortunately, the band were a victim of the changing music business of the early 1990´s and the comeback album called American Blitzkrieg…

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF Day 1

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF Day 1

Late rising due to the tiresome journey to attend Rock n’ Skull 2016, we caught only the remnants as hotel breakfast was cleared away. With coffee back in the hotel room, we killed time, Olivier from Sleazeroxx and I writing RNS reviews for our respective websites. Shawn and Brian going over endless photos. Mikael going over interview questions. Today is Brian‘s birthday, so that’s an excuse for a couple before noon beers no? Uncle Ron stopped by and…

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Let me tell you, I for one would rather attend the smaller festivals (although the bigger events can be awesome as well). Most times they are in a club or medium sized venue and are general admission. This affords much better views of the stage and overall experiences to the concert goer rather than a huge stadium and assigned seating. It’s also not unusual to find members of bands mingling with rock fans and watching their…

Meister’s MORC 2015: A Day At Sea!

Meister’s MORC 2015: A Day At Sea!

Sunday April 19, 2015 was a planned day at sea. No stops (ports) just rock n’ roll debauchery from waking to sleeping (passing out), hell I’m not even sure the ship was travelling anywhere it may have just been anchored in the deep blue sea! After the breakfast experience, the day began with the EH Team photo. I began the EH Team on a whim before last year’s cruise for a few Toronto area cruisers that…

2015 Monsters Of Rock Cruise: Countdown Commencing! My Top 5 Must See Bands…….and Hacked By A Hoser!!!!

I begin this piece during a spat of winter weather here in the Bluegrass; snow on the ground, temps in the teens, 1 snow day on the books. As you might imagine I am already yearning for a warmer climate. Along with said yearning grows an anticipation of volcanic magnitude. For in 5 unbearable months I will embark on, for me, a maiden voyage of Rock n’ Roll destiny: The 2015 Monsters Of Rock Cruise!…
