GRAND ROCKTEMBER VI – End of Summer – Festival Review

GRAND ROCKTEMBER VI – End of Summer – Festival Review

“Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well.” – George R.R. Martin For the past five years, thousands of aging metal heads have spent their last days of summer in Hinckley, MN for the annual Grand Rocktember Festival. With bands featured in the pages of Circus Magazine and Hit Parader between 1982-1990 filling the stage over two days.  For the sixth year the folks at Grand Casino decided to add a third day.  Who…

My Top 10 Albums of 2017 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

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…

MOONSTRUCK – Impact (Album Review)

MOONSTRUCK – Impact (Album Review)

There is great music all over the world and often some of it can be found via social media. Having come across Moonstruck by accident (or more precise a friend’s Facebook page who lives in that area of the world), I was delighted to have the opportunity to review their 4 track EP called “Impact”. The first track I had heard was progressive in sound and reminded me a little of Queensryche, but still had…

The End Of Summer 2017 Part Two – GRAND ROCKTEMBER V

The End Of Summer 2017 Part Two – GRAND ROCKTEMBER V

While Grand Rocktember may cater to an audience with a median age that skews a bit north of your average festival, the second day starts largely the same.  The first people on scene are a mix of those who aren’t hungover, those who are still drinking and the event crew.  Walking in we were treated to another all female tribute band.  This time it was Iron Maidens.  Another uncomfortably spot on interpretation from the singer. …

Shokker – “III” (Album Review)

Shokker – “III” (Album Review)

Everything I love about metal! Looking for something new to sink my teeth into and review, I grabbed a copy of Shokker‘s recent release (April 2017) entitled III. Now I do remember Rich “The Meister” Dillon raving about this band in some of our recent music conversations but to this point I had only ever heard their name. That changed yesterday afternoon when I slipped on the headphones and got my first taste of the…

GEOFF TATE – The Whole Story (Concert Review)

GEOFF TATE – The Whole Story (Concert Review)

Geoff Tate has always been a bit of a round peg in a square hole. Or is it square peg in a round hole?  Nonetheless.  In the early 80’s fronting Queensryche he seemed as good a fit as any for a burgeoning metal singer. He certainly had the pipes.  But as the decade progressed and the image of an 80’s metal singer started to take shape, Geoff seemed more and more like a fish out…

OPERATION MINDCRIME – Resurrection (Album Review)

OPERATION MINDCRIME – Resurrection (Album Review)

To quote Geoff Tate from Queensryche’s The Promised Land, “Where did it all go wrong?” I think it started back when Chris DeGarmo left Queensryche. They continued to put out albums, but nothing to the level prior to that. Tate was eventually fired in a public battle. His newest project is Operation Mindcrime. Unfortunately, their newest CD, Resurrection, just doesn’t come together for me. Resurrection is the second part of a trilogy. The story? It…

The End Of Summer 2016 Part 1 – GRAND ROCKTEMBER IV

The End Of Summer 2016 Part 1 – GRAND ROCKTEMBER IV

Summer should get a speeding ticket. I’m not sure who to attribute that quote to and apparently neither does the internet. Summer is my favorite time of year and it’s too short.  It wasn’t that long ago I was freezing my ass off in Somerset WI, watching Ghost at Northern Invasion.  And here we are.  In Hinckley, MN with the weather quickly approaching that of Northern Invasion. As the summer of 2016 comes to a close…
