BEEZER’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

BEEZER’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

There’s no doubting that every man, woman and beast that contributes to the hallowed pages of Decibel Geek, loves their music hard, heavy, melodic and on a daily basis. Personally, I wear ear phones for around 8 hours a day while I work and then, when I sit back and relax at home with a cold beer, it’s always with a pair of throbbing speakers within earshot. If I’m not at home I’m at a…

HALESTORM – ReAniMate 3.0 (EP Review)

HALESTORM – ReAniMate 3.0 (EP Review)

Happy New Year Decibel Geeks! Time to dive into my first assignment for 2017, a review for the just released Halestorm ReAnimate 3.0 EP. As the number implies this is the third installment of “cover song” EP’s that Halestorm have delivered as a stop-gap between full-length studio albums. There are some that don’t particularly enjoy cover albums, and sometimes for good reason. That said, if done well (Def Leppard‘s Yeah and Halestorm‘s ReAniMate 1.0 and…

Sunset East at Thee Rock N Roll Residency

Sunset East at Thee Rock N Roll Residency

In 1988 an introverted 11-year-old kid, who had fallen in love with hard rock music just a couple years prior, spent his Saturday nights doing his usual routine; video games (the Nintendo kind), junk food and sodas, and the weekly viewing of Headbangers Ball on MTV. But on one particular Saturday night, he turned off Mike Tyson’s Punch Out a couple hours early and tuned into the music-channel-that-no-longer-plays-music a couple hours earlier. This night was…

Halestorm – Into The Wild Life: Album Review

Halestorm – Into The Wild Life: Album Review

Halestorm‘s The Strange Case Of… was the first album I’ve ever given a perfect score for, and I’ve only given two others since. I thought so highly of that album from a band whose self-titled debut album also blew me out of the water the first time I heard it, all almost completely thanks to the voice of Lzzy Hale. Having been a fan since not long after the release of the first album, I…

Five Things You’ll Need For Northern Invasion

Five Things You’ll Need For Northern Invasion

  As a native Minnesotan there are only three reasons I willingly cross the border into Wisconsin.  Beer on Sundays.  A play date with my BFF Aaron Camaro.  And a rock show.  Or in this case an Invasion.  Part of the World’s Loudest Month festival series, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal are set to invade western Wisconsin on May 9th at the Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset WI with the Northern Invasion Festival.  I have seen at…

Halestorm-Into The Wild Life (April 14, 2015)

Halestorm-Into The Wild Life (April 14, 2015)

From Red Lion, Pennsylvania comes Halestorm. Lzzy Hale and her brother Arejay both started their musical journey with the piano at the young age of 5 years old before eventually upgrading to drums for Arejay and guitar for Lzzy.  The siblings have been creating original material since they were 10 and 13 respectively and the early stages of the Halestorm band featured their father Roger Hale on bass guitar.  Guitarist Joe Hottinger was recruited in 2003…
