THE DEAD DAISIES – Burn It Down (Album Review)

THE DEAD DAISIES – Burn It Down (Album Review)

The Dead Daisies were an interesting musical force for me when I first heard about them a good while back. Me personally, I love a good supergroup, sometimes they can be messy but when they work they lay waste to other bands before them. They came to my attention back when Australian rock singer John Stevens (former singer with Noiseworks and INXS) was then fronting the band. It’s a shame he left because he has…

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – Stone Temple Pilots (Album Review)

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – Stone Temple Pilots (Album Review)

Stone Temple Pilots first run with new vocalist Jeff Gutt finally sees the light of day but will the comparisons be true? Is this just another guy that sounds like late frontman Scott Weiland? I hope not. To be honest, when I first heard they had picked up a singer from much-hated music talent show American Idol I wasn’t expecting much. The bar was pretty low to start but it seems they had grown a…

MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST – Resurrection (Album Review)

So it seems Michael Schenker got together with ex-vocalists of the Michael Schenker Group namely Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet, and Robin McCauley. Add in a touch of Michael Shenker Group bassist Chris Glen, guitarist/keyboardist Steve Mann, and drummer Ted McKenna. Throw in Temple of Rock singer Doogie White and a tour spawned an album. The tour has now materialized into a full-on album with another guest appearance from Metallica‘s Kirk Hammet and altogether you have…

MYLES KENNEDY – Year Of The Tiger (Album Review)

MYLES KENNEDY – Year Of The Tiger (Album Review)

When I first heard rumors of a Myles Kennedy solo album being released, I thought it would be at least six months away.  However, rock’s workaholic frontman Myles Kennedy (also known for being the vocalist of Slash and The Conspirators and Alter Bridge, has the album already in the can and ready to drop on March 9th worldwide. I never expected a hard rock record from Myles Kennedy. What this man has spent his spare time on…

AIRBOURNE – Diamond Cuts: The B-Sides (Album Review)

AIRBOURNE – Diamond Cuts: The B-Sides (Album Review)

This was always going to be a hard one to review, not only because it’s a collection of B-Sides but also because it’s Airbourne. An Australian band that sounds eerily familiar to the native cousins AC/DC and like that band have a collection of albums that contain 10 tracks or more that more or less sound the same. So let’s get into Airbourne – Diamond Cuts: The B-Sides and see if there are truly any…

ENRICO SARZI – Drive Through (Album Review)

ENRICO SARZI – Drive Through (Album Review)

BACKGROUND The debut album from Italian singer-songwriter Enrico Sarzi has dropped and it’s time to take this baby for a spin. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from this.  Just because it was an Italian singer-songwriter, I was expecting the usual Euro-pop.  It’s a good job I don’t judge the book by the cover. ENRICO SARZI – Drive Through The first track “Shameless” kicks off with a funky groove that reminds me of bands…
