Miley, Daft Punk, Roxette, and More Go Metal – Bizarro Covers (EP#310)

In an ongoing quest to make you question your sanity, we’re back this week with Bizarro Covers. The concept is simple; hard rock and metal bands covering songs that are anything but. After doing 7 previous volumes of this theme, we had our work cut out for us. We think you’ll enjoy the results. Who doesn’t want to hear heavier versions of Miley Cyrus, Daft Punk, Roxette, Neil Young, and many more? Bizarro Covers  …

PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS – The Age of Absurdity (Album Review)

PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS – The Age of Absurdity (Album Review)

I have been looking forward to this album for quite some time. My curiosity in what Motorhead‘s Phil Campbell would do next when it came to musical output was huge and full of excitement. But with all the anticipation came an undying devotion to support a member of one of my favorite bands of all time. Not to mention to also support a fellow Welshman in his future endeavors. Don’t get me wrong though this…

ARMORTURA – Armortura (Album Review)

ARMORTURA – Armortura (Album Review)

I love reviewing bands that are completely unknown to me. Like Armortura‘s Armortura album. Sometimes I find some real treasures and other times some real stinkers that should never have got off the starting line. This is thankfully the former but it has it’s downsides in parts also… read on. “Zodiac” – It all starts off heavy…. so that’s a good thing. It’s very 80’s thrash reminiscent of bands like Exodus, Annihilator et al. The…

MAGNUM – Lost On The Road To Eternity (Album Review)

MAGNUM – Lost On The Road To Eternity (Album Review)

It has been 46 years since the birth of British rockers, Magnum. In their infancy, it was not an easy task for founding members Tony Clarkin (guitar, songwriter) and Bob Catley (vocals) in keeping their dream alive. After playing in clubs and releasing a single in 1975, their ascent to fame did not begin until 1977 when (still without a record label) they opened for Judas Priest. Finally in 1978, as a five-piece outfit, they signed with…

VINNIE VINCENT INVASION – All Systems Go (Retro-Review)

VINNIE VINCENT INVASION – All Systems Go (Retro-Review)

If Aaron Camaro and Chris Czynszak read this I’m probably getting fired. Especially when they learn that I have never heard either of Vinnie Vincent Invasion albums or anything else in his solo catalog, these my friends are virgin ears so a fresh new opinion is on the way…. read on! “Ashes to Ashes” kicks in with a cranking little 80’s riff that reminds me a bit of “Still of the Night” by Whitesnake. I…

LEAVES’ EYES – Sign Of The Dragonhead (Album Review)

LEAVES’ EYES – Sign Of The Dragonhead (Album Review)

Leaves’ Eyes was formed in 2003 by Norwegian vocalist Liv Kristine and German singer Alexander Krull. I would describe the band as symphonic metal with a taste of Viking/Pagan/Celtic and folk. In 2018 they will release their seventh studio album, Sign Of The Dragonhead, their first with new singer Elina Siirala who joined in early 2016 after the departure of founding member Kristine. I have been lucky enough to get my hands on an early…
