GRETA VAN FLEET – Anthem of the Peaceful Army (Album Review)

GRETA VAN FLEET – Anthem of the Peaceful Army (Album Review)

Greta Van Fleet is a name I’ve heard bouncing around over the last year, along with the taglines attached of Led Zeppelin rip-offs and the alternate saviors of rock. This bunch of late teens from Michigan, U.S.A. have really got the rock world in a spin and I can see why right from the first track of their debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army. The title itself suggests a hippy 70’s vibe from the off and…

COHEED AND CAMBRIA – The Unheavenly Creatures (Album Review)

COHEED AND CAMBRIA – The Unheavenly Creatures (Album Review)

COHEED AND CAMBRIA – Bio Around ten years ago, I kept hearing the name Coheed and Cambria at comic cons and while reading an assortment of rock magazines. I always avoided checking out the band because of their name, which at the time I thought was a bit lame.  However, one day I was sat watching highlights from the Download festival on the t.v. when a live performance from said band hit the screen. My…

AGRONA – Realm Of The Fallen – Album Review

AGRONA – Realm Of The Fallen – Album Review

      Welsh death metal band Agrona blast onto the scene and lays devastation in its wake. Well, that’s what the headlines should read. It’s about time a band of this genre stepped up to become the new Cannibal Corpse. The band recently signed up to British label UKEM Records and got straight to work on their first full-length album Realm Of The Fallen. They may look a grim bunch, their faces emblazoned with corpse…

GHOST – Prequelle (Album Review)

GHOST – Prequelle (Album Review)

      Ghost Get Medieval Before I heard their music back in 2010, I did what anyone else looking from the outside would automatically do. “What’s that?”, I hear you say.  I automatically put Ghost into the Death Metal category of my brain, based on the fact they are from Sweden, the land of Black Metal, and the image they had at the time. I obviously jumped the gate there, as I figured out…

JONATHAN DAVIS – Black Labyrinth (Album Review)

JONATHAN DAVIS – Black Labyrinth (Album Review)

Frontman with nu-metallers Korn, Jonathan Davis has just unleashed his solo album Black Labyrinth. For 25 years he has been the focal point of Korn with his crazed vocal tones and style, his heartfelt and pained lyrics and a whole lot more. So what does he have to offer without his nu-metal brethren backing him up? “Underneath My Skin” is not a surprising start to the album, it sounds very much like Korn with a…

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH – And Justice For None (Album Review)

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH – And Justice For None (Album Review)

Ladies and gentlemen, from Las Vegas, Nevada please welcome Five Finger Death Punch. With a name like that, that’s how they need to be introduced in my opinion. Now I am not a huge fan of this band, I sometimes find the dulcet tones of frontman Ivan Moody a bit of an annoyance but you can’t dispute the fact that they have put some great tracks together over the years and live they are a…

SEVENDUST – All I See Is War (Album Review)

SEVENDUST – All I See Is War (Album Review)

Atlanta, Georgia’s own Sevendust are a band that I think are criminally underrated. For a band that are 12 (yes I said 12) albums into their career and not only that but they are 12 immensely good albums with well-written songs and great musicianship they always seem to miss the boat when it comes to hitting the next tier which would push them to the top of the pile. They are practically unknown in most…
