Those Hosers are Fired! – Ep302

Those Hosers are Fired! – Ep302

The guys are back this week after realizing their Canadian friends were too busy with their own podcast to cover their normal Thanksgiving duties. For five years, Rich “Meister” Dillon and Wally “Gator” Norton devotedly filled in on the last week of Thanksgiving so Chris and Aaron could enjoy time with their families and celebrate their holiday. However, this year the calls and emails went unanswered and the guys were forced to go back out…

JASTA – The Lost Chapters (Album Review)

JASTA – The Lost Chapters (Album Review)

Jamey Jasta, heavy music’s chronic workaholic, releases another Jasta album, but is it as good as Hatebreed? “This Is Your Life“, the first track on the album, kicks off with a pounding drumbeat and revolving riff, before vocalist Jamey Jasta blasts in over the top. You can just imagine the live crowd, fists pumping and bodies hurling over the place when they play live. The chorus reminds me a bit of old Biohazard. That’s one…

SPARZANZA – Announcing The End (Album Review)

SPARZANZA – Announcing The End (Album Review)

If you love Avenged Sevenfold, this is their heavier manic twin brother, Sparzanza. As the first sounds emerge from the darkness, this is as atmospheric as it gets from Sparzanza. The opening orchestral sounding theme music is ominous, as it creeps from the speakers across my room, up the wall and across the ceiling, preparing to bash my head in from above. As the first track “Announcing The End” begins, vocalist Fredrik Weileby sounds uncannily like M…

SKARLETT RIOT – Regenerate (Album Review)

SKARLETT RIOT – Regenerate (Album Review)

Just the title of the album gets me thinking this has to be a cheesy 80’s hair band with the miss spelling of Scarlet, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. The first song, “Break”, starts off with a sci-fi sounding soundtrack piece to a movie. Not at all what I was expecting. The drums sound very electronic while a piano tinkles in the background before a crushingly heavy riff played at 8 billion beats per minute…

PROCESSION – Doom Decimation (Album Review)

PROCESSION – Doom Decimation (Album Review)

As the first stains of guitar softly enter the stereo, luring you into that sense of solemn comfort before the riff proper tears your head off. “The Warning” album opener is a powerful instrumental that just rocks! You can hear the bass widdling all over the place like something Geezer Butler would put together. The soloing all over the main riff is pure 80’s metal. Then in comes “When Doomsday Has Come” which is so hard…

LYDIA CAN’T BREATHE – Tastes New (Album Review)

Very Weird, But Very Metal – Faith No More’s Bastard Sons Break Out Of The Asylum Do you like Faith No More?  Do you like your metal crazy and improvisational?  If so, read on my friends and let the craziness begin. “187 Stupid” Is a bit of a mess, but I like this mess.  There’s a rapping like vocal, mixed with a melodic clean vocal thrown in with some brutal growling, which sounds like it’s…

KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD – Lay It On Down (Album Review)

KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD – Lay It On Down (Album Review)

Kenny Wayne Shepherd Lays In On Down In 1995, I heard about some 16-year blues guitar player who was making some news. I kept hearing about the next Stevie Ray Vaughan. I checked out Kenny Wayne Shepherd and he was the real deal. He blew me away. I’ve followed most of his career which has included pure blues, blues rock and edgier rock. His newest CD, Lay It On Down, continues his stellar guitar work….
