LOVE N’ REVENGE – Karma (Album Review)

LOVE N’ REVENGE – Karma (Album Review)

After taking a break from writing, I thought it was time to do a review on an album that I received earlier this year from Kivel Records. If you don’t know Kivel Records I would suggest you get on the site and check out all the amazing bands on the label. I was first introduced to Kivel‘s selections with a spectacular band called Tango Down, which is one of my most played CD’s released in 2016….

SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

“Generation”…(insert bassline here)….“Clash”. For those that have no clue what I am referring to in the previous sentence then you are missing out on one of the coolest songs from one of the most underrated albums to come out of the eighties. “Generation Clash” was the lead off single and video to Accept‘s 1989 Eat The Heat album. The video for this song was my introduction to vocalist David Reece who stepped in as replacement…

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

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…

TANGO DOWN Live (Rock N’ Skull 2016 Spotlight)

TANGO DOWN Live (Rock N’ Skull 2016 Spotlight)

Rock N’ Skull 2016 was a huge success for me. With so many amazing bands over the 4 days in Joliet IL, I needed a week to recoup. Overall, I thought the last day of the festival was not as exciting with the band line-up, compared to the other days. Stephen Pearcy was the headliner and he was amazing with the classic Ratt songs. The opener for the day was a band from Peoria IL…

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Let me tell you, I for one would rather attend the smaller festivals (although the bigger events can be awesome as well). Most times they are in a club or medium sized venue and are general admission. This affords much better views of the stage and overall experiences to the concert goer rather than a huge stadium and assigned seating. It’s also not unusual to find members of bands mingling with rock fans and watching their…
