SISTER SWITCHBLADE – Tales and Taboos (Album Review)

SISTER SWITCHBLADE – Tales and Taboos (Album Review)

A ways back now, in August 2017, I received a surprise package in the mailbox. It was a promo CD sent for review…and it was awesome! I speak of the debut album Best Served Cold from Australia’s Sister Switchblade. The band arose from the ashes of vocalist Andy Smith‘s former outfit, BabyJane. A great album filled with Hard Rock Sleazers, it still sees rotation in my playlists two years later (save the damn ballads). In…

MURDERBIRD – Pillars of Creation (Album Review)

MURDERBIRD – Pillars of Creation (Album Review)

Sometimes you find yourself, almost subconsciously, returning to an album over and over again. I call that a sleeper. You spin it the first time, knowing nothing prior to that. It finds its way onto your phone for mobile listening and is seen to while away bus travel hours more often than expected. Then a week or two later at home scrolling through some recent releases and additions to your digital library, you again settle…

BULLET – Live (Album Review)

BULLET – Live (Album Review)

Bullet is a straight-ahead AC/DC-style Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band from Vaxjo, Sweden. Originally culminating in 1996, the current roster sees Dag “Hell” Hofer (vocals), Adam Hector (bass), Gustav Hjortsjo (drums), Hampus Klang (guitars) and Alexander Lyrbo (guitars). One of my early articles, when I started out writing for Decibel Geek, was a piece on Bullet. Discovering them somehow not too long before that, I loved the band and everything I’d heard. I guess I just…

DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

The first time I heard Danko Jones “Bounce” I was overtaken. His sound was so different, so fresh. It had a funk to it but was also balls-out hard rock. The song used to play on the radio in the kitchen at work or in my car while I was delivering pizzas thanks to the only radio station I would consent to listen to at the time, 97.7HTZ FM. I steadily collected the recorded works…

BEXATRON – Rivoli Toronto (Concert Review)

Since first hearing the album’s lead-off track, “Get Out of My Tree”, it’s catchy hum along chorus will not leave my grey matter. The album arrived at the doorstep of CGCM Central and our staff writer and all-around good guy Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall jumped on an album review. Check it out here: Bexatron – Hey You (Album Review). Less than two weeks later Bexatron have hit Canadian soil and I was fortunate enough to catch…
