CALL OF THE WILD – Festival Preview (Blog)

So, The Meister is at it yet again! As many followers of CGCM or Decibel Geek or personal Facebook friends know, Rich “The Meister” Dillon is a rock show freak. He travels, often far and wide for the gig. He is known to endure 6-hour bus trips in the middle of the night to get to and from the gig, whether scheduled to work the day after or not. Or flying halfway around the world…

TRUCKER DIABLO – Other Side of the City (Single Review)

TRUCKER DIABLO – Other Side of the City (Single Review)

I owe a few things to the Northern Ireland band TRUCKER DIABLO. They were a huge part in my “reawakening”. You see, I spent a number of years “out” of music. Mostly for reasons that I just don’t care to go into here and it’s not really important anyway. As I started to once again come alive with the missing piece of my existence, I mostly stuck to the bigger, known bands of yesteryear. Hey,…

TRUCKER DIABLO – Fighting For Everything (Album Review)

TRUCKER DIABLO – Fighting For Everything (Album Review)

Sometimes rock is just rock. It doesn’t need to fit into an overly dramatized subcategory. And it’s not dead. Not even close. Ireland’s Trucker Diablo is such. They are just rock. Good rock. Hard rock. Rock that’ll have your toes tapping. Or headbanging. Or even up on the dance floor, groovin’. My road to discovery took place back in 2013. Seems like a lifetime ago. The record company imposed upon me a new album. Back then…

The Big Truck Rolls On: A Review of Trucker Diablo’s Rise Above The Noise

The Big Truck Rolls On: A Review of Trucker Diablo’s Rise Above The Noise

Trucker Diablo is a straight up, no frills hard rock band out of Northern Ireland whose Songs Of Iron CD from 2013 made The Meister’s best albums list of that year. The Songs Of Iron album is loaded with fist pumping, thunderous rock anthems with songs such as “Red Light On”, “Drive” and “Not So Superstar” that are still fairly regular listens for me. Here’s a link to The Meister’s review of Songs Of Iron: The Big…
