CEREBUS – From Beyond the Vault Door (Album Review)

Cerebus hail from North Carolina and in the mid-1980s attained cult status in the US. Sadly, cult status usually equates to producing fabulous music unmatched by album sales. After a couple of demos, the highlight of the band’s career came in 1986 with the release of the well-received Too Late to Pray, an album chock-full of classic metal with a hefty nod towards the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Twin guitars, powerful vocals, lengthy…

LYCANTHRO- Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse (EP Review)

LYCANTHRO – Bio Horns up! It’s time to prepare for the arrival of the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse. Not talking about Ric Flair’s band of WCW wrestlers, but instead the sophomore EP from Ottawa’s Lycanthro. It was February of last year when I was introduced to this band via their debut self titled release. When I reviewed the debut, I  clearly remember thinking what these guys could be capable of with a little more…

Shokker – “III” (Album Review)

Everything I love about metal! Looking for something new to sink my teeth into and review, I grabbed a copy of Shokker‘s recent release (April 2017) entitled III. Now I do remember Rich “The Meister” Dillon raving about this band in some of our recent music conversations but to this point I had only ever heard their name.

KILLER BEE – Killing You Softly – (Album Review)

I remember a few years back Rich “The Meister” Dillon had conducted a Decibel Geek interview with a band called Killer Bee. As is sometimes the case, stuff gets lost in the shuffle. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and it turns out these Bee‘s are set to infest again in 2016. Not only did The Meister post the new video, an excellent cover of Ten Years After‘s “I’d Love To Change The World”…
