25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

This is my fifth edition of “25 Albums” for Decibel Geek. And things were getting a little thin by 94. Grunge had basically morphed into top forty “alternative” music like Weezer and Belly causing Kurt Cobain to blow his brains out. Pearl Jam sued Ticketmaster and lost. Gotta love those service charges.  Green Day ushered in the pop-punk movement that would influence future greats like Fall Out Boy and Panic At The Disco. Pink Floyd toured…

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. Admittedly, my favorites tend to be from the Melodic Rock and Symphonic Metal genres. Regardless, I am proud to present my Top Ten for 2017. To…

Those Hosers are Fired! – Ep302

The guys are back this week after realizing their Canadian friends were too busy with their own podcast to cover their normal Thanksgiving duties. For five years, Rich “Meister” Dillon and Wally “Gator” Norton devotedly filled in on the last week of Thanksgiving so Chris and Aaron could enjoy time with their families and celebrate their holiday. However, this year the calls and emails went unanswered and the guys were forced to go back out…

UNPARALLELED HEIGHT – Resurgence, Vol 1 (Album Review)

UNPARALLELED HEIGHT – Resurgence, Vol 1 (Album Review)

So you like metalcore riffing and the blast beats?  You love the aggression and technical chops, but you can’t stand the Cookie Monster vocals (as The Meister would say).  Unparalleled Height (UPH) have the answer (as did the late great Affiance) – get a fantastic singer in and utilise the growling sparingly! From the outskirts of Pittsburgh, these guys have released possibly my favorite EP of the year, so far.  This EP is made up…

MEGADETH – Roy Wilkins Auditorium, St. Paul, MN

MEGADETH – Roy Wilkins Auditorium, St. Paul, MN

A titan in Metal and my favorite Birther, Dave Mustaine, came to Saint Paul with his band Megadeth. In support of 2016’s magnificent record Dystopia, Megadeth is wrapping up its North American dates with a swing through Roy Wilkins Auditorium.  With him, in what has become almost an annoyance, are 4 support acts.  Almost like a traveling mini-fest.  Fests, even of the mini ilk, don’t work well on a weeknight. When I first saw the…
