EDGUY Live at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

Sweden Rock Festival, the greatest festival in the world, always has so many bands that I personally want to see each year. Even though it is only my second year going, you can look at the past lineups and see why it is the best festival around. Last year I saw some bands I never thought I would see. This year, maybe not as many bucket-listers, but one band sits on the top for me this…

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Recap Day 2 (Festival Review/Feature)

Thursday, June 8, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #2 Hotel breakfast and buckets of coffee started Thursday, June 8th. Then it was some confusing shower experiences. No, not like that you perverts! We couldn’t figure out the taps as they possessed no markings whatsoever. And the tub was basically open in the bathroom with only a little shower curtain that didn’t even go half way around. Almost impossible to prevent a bathroom…

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!

Avantasia Live In Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Avantasia Live Toronto, Ontario, Canada, April 13th, 2016 Queen Elizabeth Theatre Avantasia is a band I discovered in late 2013. New to the European metal scene I have discovered so many great bands in the last three years. Where have I been?

Album Review: Energy of the Elements – 03:30 Dehuman Rise

Album Review: Energy of the Elements – 03:30 Dehuman Rise

Love Power Metal?  Love Operatic Metal? Love Energy of the Elements? I listened to 03:30 without any preconceived ideas and was rewarded by a fascinating mix of the old and new from this group, who have a cultured line in fantasy-themed storytelling. Hailing from Turin, these Italian metallers have just issued their debut long player.  The band consists of Fabrizio Balliano (Vocals), Riccardo Balliano (Lead guitar), Roberto Deblasio (Rhythm guitar), Gabriele Gilodi (Keyboards), Emanuele Lepredoro…
