Rock n’ Skull 2016: MRF vs. RNS – Day #2

Rock n’ Skull 2016: MRF vs. RNS – Day #2

On this Saturday morning, the official Day #2 of 2016’s Rock n’ Skull event, we made sure to get the hotel breakfast in time. After that, it was back to more hanging out in our by now rather smelly hotel room. Perhaps 5 male rock n’ roll road warriors sharing one room was not the best plan. We spent our time looking over yesterday’s photos, preparing interview questions, writing reviews, blasting tunes and scrolling the…

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF Day 1

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF Day 1

Late rising due to the tiresome journey to attend Rock n’ Skull 2016, we caught only the remnants as hotel breakfast was cleared away. With coffee back in the hotel room, we killed time, Olivier from Sleazeroxx and I writing RNS reviews for our respective websites. Shawn and Brian going over endless photos. Mikael going over interview questions. Today is Brian‘s birthday, so that’s an excuse for a couple before noon beers no? Uncle Ron stopped by and…

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF – Pre-Party

…and we’re off! Rock n’ Skull 2016 is well under way and we’re off on a high note after the pre-party! The journey was a little rough as we departed Shawn “Animalize” Irwin‘s house in Oshawa Ontario at 2am. Roaddog The Meister probably had the worst of it. He was at the Tracii Guns show at the Rockpile Toronto on Tuesday night. Then proceeded to go basically straight to work for a 16hr day to turn…

LÖVE RAZËR Concert Review Oshawa

LÖVE RAZËR Concert Review Oshawa

A new band that is creating some buzz around the Decibel Geek office is Löve Razër. The Meister had already seen the band twice (At Linsmore Tavern and At The Rockpile) and was telling me I would love them. Löve Razër hails from Windsor and has come a long way in just a year: they’ve recorded a 3 song EP, Rock n Roll Addiction, done a music video for “First Class Bitch”, secured an opening slot for the KISS tribute band Destroyer and…

Ratt’s Juan Croucier Ratt ‘n’ Rolls The Rockpile

Ratt’s Juan Croucier Ratt ‘n’ Rolls The Rockpile

The Rockpile has done it  yet again folks! My favorite club in Toronto, they have consistently time after time been able to present awesome rock shows and lure bands up to our neck of the woods here in “The Great White North”. This time, it was Ratt’s Juan Croucier who made the trek north of the border. Nevermind att the “name” business that’s rampaging the social media web sites involving former bandmates Warren DeMartini, Stephen…
