EUROPE – Concert Hall (Perth, Australia) (Concert Review)

EUROPE LIVE! It’s a warm autumn night at the concrete bunker that is the Perth Concert Hall in Perth, Western Australia. The hall itself is intended for use by the local orchestra, but has seen a string of live gigs over the years by bands like R.E.M. and more recently Glenn Hughes on his Deep Purple outing. It’s a bit like watching a concert in your local cinema, but tonight I didn’t really care because…

PARKWAY DRIVE – Reverence (Album Review)

PARKWAY DRIVE – Reverence (Album Review)

Destruction from Downunder Australian metalcore legends Parkway Drive are back for the attack with their sixth long player entitled Reverence which follows hot on the heels of their chart-topping smash Ire. Frontman Winston McCall in a recent interview claimed that Reverence would be a much more aggressive album than its predecessor.

SKINDRED – Big Tings (Album Review)

Welsh ragga metallers Skindred are now 7 albums deep into their career and with each release there has been an injection of craziness.

So here we are with album number 7 and I’m expecting an explosion of something I’ve never heard before. Each time I go in thinking…

I picked up on Shinedown around the time the band released The Sound of Madness which I personally thought was a strong record filled with radio anthems, crunching guitar riffs and some of the strongest and melodic vocals I had heard in some time. Here we are with Attention Attention the sixth album from the Florida rockers and I’m hoping they don’t follow the formula of last release Threat to Survival, an album that put…

ALICE IN CHAINS – New Music Video (News)

You know it’s going to be a good year when Alice In Chains drops a new single on you out of the blue. The new track, titled “The One You Know“, is one hell of a track! It’s 100% the Alice In Chains we all know and love. The track starts off with a dirty out of tune guitar tone which drones away as its down stroke staccato crunch beats the sub woofer to death….
