ARCHANGE – Flashback (Album Review)

ARCHANGE – Flashback (Album Review)

Fire up the De Lorien, kick off on the skateboard and go back to the 1980’s with Archange.  Archange are a French Hard Rock band from Grenoble that formed in 2013, but sound like they are from the 80’s, with a mixture of prime Scorpions, Whitesnake and Dokken.

You can slag on the 80’s all you want but it was a great time to be a teenager, the music was loud and more than anything else it was FUN! If nothing else, 2016 has been a year of discovery for…
