INGLORIOUS – Ride to Nowhere (Album Review)

INGLORIOUS – Ride to Nowhere (Album Review)

Inglorious‘ self-titled debut album really impressed me – they were my number 3 pick in 2016 – and the follow-up last year was almost as good. With Ride to Nowhere though, they take it to the next level. The songwriting is sharp, the riffs are strong, the choruses are catchy and lead singer Nathan James has his voice at octaves not heard too often. And then it all fell apart. But first, the album. The music was…

NO HOT ASHES – No Hot Ashes (Album Review)

First time around, melodic rockers No Hot Ashes were big-hitters on the Belfast scene having formed in the early 1980s. Things were looking up for the five-piece of Dave Irvine on guitar, Paul Boyd on bass, singer Tommy Quinn on vocals, Tommy Dickson on keyboards and Steve Strange on drums when they signed for GWR Records in 1988 and moved to London in anticipation of the glory to follow.   Unfortunately, things didn’t quite happen…

NO HOT ASHES – No Hot Ashes (Album Review)

NO HOT ASHES – No Hot Ashes (Album Review)

Seeing the words “melodic hard rock” in the band description is a turn off these days for me. Sorry, but it’s true. I’m a little burnt out on the oversaturated genre. The syrupy flaccidity of much of the output fails to excite nor hold my attention. I find that the melodic hard rock genre, in general, these days, lacks the hooks and choruses making each track identifiable like in the 80s. Many songs and even…
