ARCHANGE – Flashback (Album Review)

ARCHANGE – Flashback (Album Review)

Fire up the De Lorien, kick off on the skateboard and go back to the 1980’s with Archange.  Archange are a French Hard Rock band from Grenoble that formed in 2013, but sound like they are from the 80’s, with a mixture of prime Scorpions, Whitesnake and Dokken. I hadn’t heard of them before I a got a lucky dip review from The Meister.  He knows I’m partial to a bit of these types of…

CHEAP TRICK – We’re All Alright! (Album Review)

CHEAP TRICK – We’re All Alright! (Album Review)

Not many bands make it to 18 albums. It takes a combination of longevity and releasing albums consistently. Bands that have made this pinnacle include the Rolling Stones, KISS, Black Sabbath and Scorpions. But, many of your favorite bands haven’t reached it (and probably won’t) like Aerosmith, AC/DC and ZZ Top. Well, you can now add Cheap Trick to the 18-timers club with their latest CD, We’re All Alright! If you’re going to name your…

Forced Entry – Forced Entry (CD Review)

Forced Entry – Forced Entry (CD Review)

Back in 1988, I was in 8th grade and listening to popular rock bands like Guns n’ Roses, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. I was starting to discover bands like Scorpions, Metallica and a whole range of harder bands that would fill up my tape collection (this was before I had a CD player). One band that I didn’t hear about, but falls right into the music that consuming my life is German heavy metal…

Phantom 5 – Phantom 5 (May 13, 2016)

Born as Supremacy, the new German Melodic Rock alliance, started when Michael Voss (Casanova, Bonfire, Mad Max) and Claus Lessmann (Bonfire) decided to approach the Frontiers label about making a new record together. Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino loved the idea and suggested the guys should go ahead and involve some of the talented musicians that composed the Melodic Hard Rock scene in Germany between the end of the 90’s and early 00’s. In particular, bands such…

Uli Jon Roth in Toronto (Concert Review)

Uli Jon Roth in Toronto (Concert Review)

Slicing, dicing, wailing, screaming, shredding, charging, chopping, noodling, tapping, guitars, guitars, guitars. Well, what else would you expect from a show titled The Ultimate Guitar Tour really? Some (OK, many of you who know me) may question why I would attend such an event knowing that I’m usually less than a fan (and have expressed my general hatred) of lengthy instrumentals and solos. I’ll answer that question simply: Uli Jon Roth! After all his time…

Rizon – Power Plant (Album Review)

Rizon – Power Plant (Album Review)

File this one under surprisingly great…”if you rule the world, the heart is on fire“; the blood certainly pumped a bit faster after this release.  For fans of bands such as Amaranthe, Swiss band Rizon are like catnip cocaine for cool cats.  This band knows how to bellow out catchy pop metal with all the swagger of a grifter taking your hard earned cash. The band is made up of Matthias Götz (vocals/acoustic guitars), Rahel…
