WHITENAILS – First Trip (Album Review)

WHITENAILS – First Trip (Album Review)

When the Meister first put this thing called WhiteNails in my dropbox my first thought was…  why WhiteNails?  Because he thought there was a void of bands with the word WHITE in their name in my life?  A little stumbling through my internet machine sorting through columns and videos on manicure tips solved my mystery.  They are Canadian.  Just like Decibel Geek‘s proud editor.  See The Meister is well aware of my unhealthy fascination with Canada.  CCM skates hang from my…

THUNDER – Rip It Up (Album Review)

THUNDER – Rip It Up (Album Review)

This review is a big deal for me. I’ve been a Thunder fan since their first album, Backstreet Symphony. I’ve followed them over the years through all the ups and downs they have had. It was a bucket list goal of mine to go see them in the UK for years. When they called it quits (the second time) in 2009, I was convinced I would never see Thunder live or get to hear any…

STEEL PANTHER Brings WILSON and the NSFW banter to Saint Paul

STEEL PANTHER Brings WILSON and the NSFW banter to Saint Paul

It’s Christmas time in the Twin Cities which can only mean a Steel Panther show is imminent. As an added gift from the sack of Steel Panther, we get Detroit’s Wilson opening the show.  Slowly becoming less of a “best kept” secret, Wilson are part of a burgeoning revival in hard rock.  With just enough of their tongue kept in their cheeks to make them the perfect opening act for rock’s reigning lampoon’s Steel Panther….

MALACODA – Ritualis Aeterna (EP Review)

MALACODA – Ritualis Aeterna (EP Review)

Cue the old man voice for the following quote, “When I was a boy, it was all called Heavy Metal!” I recently had a conversation about this with a much younger musician and I laughed because it’s true. Long before Sam Dunn started drawing up the official flowchart of Heavy Metal genres and sub-genres and sub-sub-genres it was simply “Heavy Metal”. Quiet Riot was heavy metal, Venom was heavy metal, Motley Crue was heavy metal,…

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…

ALLEGAEON – Proponent For Sentience (Album Review)

ALLEGAEON – Proponent For Sentience (Album Review)

Trying to classify exactly what genre of technical death metal Allegaeon falls into is about as difficult as it is to figure out how to pronounce their name (I think it’s A-Legion but I’ve also heard people call them Alle-gae-on, or even Alle-gone). What isn’t difficult is recognizing the amount of talent in this band. The musicianship alone is mind-blowing. Add the catchy songwriting, a great sense of humor, and a vocabulary of words you’ve…
