LOVE RAZER – Seacliffe Park Amphitheatre/Hogs for Hospice. (Concert Review)

LOVE RAZER – Seacliffe Park Amphitheatre/Hogs for Hospice. (Concert Review)

Records/CDs/Digital are not what they use to be regarding sales volume. Yes, Captain Obvious! A band has to make it via their live show and merch sales. That sounds familiar and harkens back to a certain band from the 1970s that released 3 albums producing dismal sales before their Alive album catapulted them into a 40+ year career. How does that relate to Löve Razër? I love their first EP and studio sound and of…

In this 2 hour-plus episode, your hosts find themselves looking back on a year that had many highs as well as lows.

What Year Is This? IDORA – Wildcat (Album Review)

What Year Is This? IDORA – Wildcat (Album Review)

It is no secret I LOVE 80’s Hard Rock, Hair Metal and Pop Metal. It was the soundtrack of my youth and continues to comprise probably 80% of my iPod and listening time. 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…

Hoser Heavy Metal Vol. 5 with Löve Razër (Ep#264)

This week on the Decibel Geek Podcast it’s time for the yearly break for hosts Chris and Aaron. As the guys take the week off to enjoy their Thanksgiving football and turkey et al, The Canadian Hosers take over for their fifth time. Self-dubbed “The Hoser Heavy Metal Twins”, mostly due to being born on the very same day….and mass beer consumption during the moniker choosing process….Wally “Wallygator” Norton and Rich “The Meister” Dillon are Decibel…

Löve Razër, Enuff Z’Nuff, Tracii Guns (Review & Interview)

Löve Razër, Enuff Z’Nuff, Tracii Guns (Review & Interview)

Having always wanted to see Enuff Z’Nuff and never having done so since latching on way back in 1989, I was tempted towards this show. Throw in Tracii Guns band and the temptation grew. However the thought of Toronto traffic has severely limited our desire to attend shows as we used to in the city. Then Löve Razër was added and that became the no brainer for our decision. I also hoped to finally meet…

BULLETBOYS / LÖVE RAZËR @ The Rockpile

BULLETBOYS / LÖVE RAZËR @ The Rockpile

When I was a teenage pup there was a music video TV show called Toronto Rocks. On Wednesdays, the show was Midweek Metal Mania and every week I would get my fix of Sunset Strip rock videos. Every Wednesday I would park myself on the couch to see the newest songs from the newest bands all sporting leather and spandex and fishnets and mascara. A time when Rock Stars actually looked like Rock Stars! Well…

LÖVE RAZËR at Eastsides (Concert Review)

LÖVE RAZËR at Eastsides (Concert Review)

It is 7am Saturday morning.  I rarely write about a show this quickly, but I make an exception for the one that Löve Razër put on. Their show, having concluded a mere five hours ago, is still fresh in my memory. I usually allow a show to percolate for a few days, jotting things here and there, before I review it. However, this was too good to let it settle. Thankfully, my wife and I…

STATION – Station (Album Review)

STATION – Station (Album Review)

Not so much late to the party as letting this one age like fine wine. That said, wine needs more than a year and a half and Station needs much less in my opinion. When I came across the band a couple years ago I listened to their EP and really liked “Everything”. The others were good but not as ear catchy. Glad to report they included “Everything” on their full-length release that came out in…
