TESLA – Shock (Album Review)

TESLA – Shock (Album Review)

Remember when Tesla put out their way-over-the-top CD back in the ’80s? Oh, you don’t? That’s probably because they never did. They may have come out during the hair metal era, but they never fell into that group. Yes, they’re an 80’s hard rock band, but they offer musicianship and substance that many bands from those days lacked. That’s why I find it odd that they put that album out now with Shock.   Phil…

STEEL CITY – Fortress (Album Review)

STEEL CITY – Fortress (Album Review)

OUT f’n Standing! That is pretty much my entire review of the debut album entitled Fortress from Ohio based rockers Steel City. If you are searching for a melodic pop metal masterpiece, you just found it. After just one listen, Fortress is flirting with my top spot on my Best of 2018 list. It’s that fucking good, no joke. About a month ago, I was invited to come “like” the Steel City Facebook page. Always open…

CRAZY LIXX – Ruff Justice (Album Review)

CRAZY LIXX – Ruff Justice (Album Review)

Having checked out this band a few times over the past decade based on their name, which appeals to me and is generally indicative of my expectations of sound. Over the years they have delivered that sleaze sound that seems to breed like rabbits in Sweden (and neighboring countries). I do keep coming back to Crazy Lixx each release and through many member changes, I still await the evolution of the hooks to over the…

DEF LEPPARD POISON TESLA in Atlanta (Concert Review)

DEF LEPPARD POISON TESLA in Atlanta (Concert Review)

5/3/17 – Lakewood Amphitheater  – Atlanta, Ga. Great concert co-headline packages are all the rage these days with two or three mega bands sharing a bill. In a world where all the 80’s bands we love are struggling to make a living from album sales, more and more bands are forced to earn their living playing live. This is a good and bad thing in my opinion. On the one hand, you get to see your…

KILLER BEE – Eye In The Sky (Album Review)

KILLER BEE – Eye In The Sky (Album Review)

The darkness has descended and the end of the year is just around the corner.  Perfect conditions to test drive some new music in the semi-light of morning on the way to the day job. Killer Bee are a new listening experience for me.  Although the band has been around since the early 1990’s, Eye In The Sky is the first release I have heard from his Canadian-Swedish outfit. As I pulled away from home,…

TESLA – Mechanical Resonance Live (Album Review)

TESLA – Mechanical Resonance Live (Album Review)

It’s hard to believe it was 30 years ago that Tesla exploded onto the scene with Mechanical Resonance. They stood out from the hair metal bands of the time by keeping their focus on their music and not on their image. The result was solid bluesy hard rock and work ethic that they honed from their favorite bands from the 70’s. They’re still going strong with some of their best music coming in the 2000’s….

CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED – Creatures Watching Over The Dead (Album Review)

What do the following albums have in common:  – Master of Puppets by Metallica  – Among the Living by Anthrax  – Toys In the Attic by Aerosmith  – Slippery When Wet by Bon Jovi  – Pyromania by Def Leppard Not only did these albums unleash these bands to a whole new level of fame, but they were their third albums. Many argue that these are the best albums by these bands. The new album by…

DEF LEPPARD at Blossom Music Center (Concert Review)

DEF LEPPARD at Blossom Music Center (Concert Review)

It felt like 1987 at Blossom Music Center just outside of Cleveland. Def Leppard, Tesla and REO Speedwagon brought us back in time with a blast of ’80s hard and classic rock. Def Leppard hit the stage with “Let’s Go”, the opening track from their latest self-titled CD. This song’s main riff is too close to “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and overall too poppy for me. Luckily, they kicked it up a notch with “Animal”…
