KADAVAR – Rough Times (Album Review)

KADAVAR – Rough Times (Album Review)

Wallygator here, yes I know it’s been a while since I have put pen to paper for the Decibel Geek. I figured I could squeeze in one review though before the clock hits 2018. Last week, The Meister made a call out for someone to review the new Rough Times album from German rockers Kadavar. Who are Kadavar, you ask? I reacted with that exact same question. Now before I replied to this review request,…

ACCEPT – The Rise of Chaos (Album Review)

ACCEPT – The Rise of Chaos (Album Review)

Accept have returned to greatness! And thank God for that! By the time 2010 rolled around I had lost touch with Accept. To be honest, hard rock/metal in general. 90’s released Accept albums Objection Overruled, Death Row and Predator came and went without my knowledge. Then I acquired 2010’s Blood of the Nations and all of that changed. Surprised to stumble across it, I, of course, got it much later than its actual release day. Playing…

ACCEPT – Restless and Live (Album Review)

ACCEPT – Restless and Live (Album Review)

I have to be honest here – even though I developed my love for this genre in the 80’s, I missed out on some bands. I mean, I knew their hit songs but didn’t really dig deep into their back catalogs. As I’ve matured in my musical tastes, I “discover” these bands and appreciate the songs I missed back then. If we’re being honest here, I think everyone can say there is at least one…

BLACK STAR RIDERS – Heavy Fire (Album Review)

BLACK STAR RIDERS – Heavy Fire (Album Review)

I had a girlfriend once who wanted to celebrate every anniversary. The first time we saw a movie. First time we kissed. First time we made love. I didn’t buy into it. Firstly, I’m not an anniversary type of guy, usually. But this is one anniversary worth celebrating. Irish rockers Thin Lizzy celebrate 40 years of rocking the world this year. Now that’s something to pop the bubbly over! Things look a little different in…

My Top 10 Albums of 2016 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

Another year has passed with new music and what a year it has been. With over 100 releases for me to go through to try and break it down to my personal top 10 favorite, wasn’t easy! As a fan of different styles of music, it was hard to pick what I feel as my Top 10. One day it might be some heavier music where other days more melodic. So many other great releases came…
