My Top 10 Albums of 2017 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

Be sure to check out the Decibel Geek website contributor’s collective compilation of the top albums: Best of 2017 Article As 2017 quickly approaches its conclusion, I find it appropriate to reflect on almost 150 new releases of music that I have discovered over the course of the year.

HAIR METAL HEAVEN (…or Hell?) – Day 1 (Festival Review/Blog)

The first ever Hair Metal Heaven Festival in Hull UK has wrapped up its inaugural run. I’m here to give you a brief synopsis from a Canadian who traveled the Atlantic for this first-time event. You may agree or disagree, but these are my truthful and honest thoughts as I sit here days after the event has wrapped up. I certainly do not know all of the facts, not the ins and outs. I haven’t even…

ECLIPSE – Monumentum (Album Review)

ECLIPSE – Monumentum (Album Review)

One of the things I enjoy most about writing for Decibel Geek is discovering new bands – or at least ones that are new to me – from all over the world. Often, these bands have several other releases and are fairly popular in their country but not very well-known anywhere else. As usual, I find myself amazed that there is so much great music out there that most people don’t even know exist. When…

Hailing from Austria, Symphonic Metal band Edenbridge was created in 1998 thanks to Guitarist/keyboarder – Arne Stockhammer known only as (Lanvall), bassist Kurt Bednarsky and the beautiful Sabine Edelsbacher on vocals.

My Top 10 Albums of 2016 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

Another year has passed with new music and what a year it has been. With over 100 releases for me to go through to try and break it down to my personal top 10 favorite, wasn’t easy! As a fan of different styles of music, it was hard to pick what I feel as my Top 10. One day it might be some heavier music where other days more melodic. So many other great releases came…
