CORRODED – Defcon Zero (Album Review)

CORRODED – Defcon Zero (Album Review)

Another band to hit my radar and assault my ears is Sweden’s Corroded. Not exactly a new band, they have released 4 albums since their debut in 2009 but Defcon Zero is their latest offering to the metal masses. Not sure why but the cover art immediately reminded me of the old Apocalypse Now movie poster from the 70’s. Dark, foreboding and maybe a hint at the music I was about to uncover. I usually follow a…

L.A. GUNS/Diemonds Live! (Concert Review)

L.A. GUNS/Diemonds Live! (Concert Review)

A number of years ago, I watched as one of my all time favorite bands splintered apart in an intense and honestly ugly situation. For quite some time, years actually there was essentially 2 active versions of LA GUNS. I am not sure if they were the first band to create such a situation but they certainly weren’t the last. Great White, Queensryche and more recently Ratt have found themselves in similar situations. Some will…

BULLETBOYS / LÖVE RAZËR @ The Rockpile

BULLETBOYS / LÖVE RAZËR @ The Rockpile

When I was a teenage pup there was a music video TV show called Toronto Rocks. On Wednesdays, the show was Midweek Metal Mania and every week I would get my fix of Sunset Strip rock videos. Every Wednesday I would park myself on the couch to see the newest songs from the newest bands all sporting leather and spandex and fishnets and mascara. A time when Rock Stars actually looked like Rock Stars! Well…

Slave To The White Line! – Chemical Burn “Smokin Mirrors”

Slave To The White Line! – Chemical Burn “Smokin Mirrors”

One of the pleasures of writing for the Decibel Geek website is the chance to discover and share new music with you. Rock is dead or so they say, but then again who the hell are “they”? Certainly the old school mentality of signing the big record deal and becoming rich and famous is a thing of the past but rock and roll lives and breathes in the hearts of the young. Truth is I…

“Meh,” No Steven, No Izzy, No Reunion! – Wally’s Rant

So 2016 is a few heartbeats away and it appears that this year will bring about one of the most anticipated “rock reunions” of all time. All together now, Guns n Roses!, Guns n Roses!” Ok, I admit that does feel pretty damn good. Guns n Roses largely contributed to the soundtrack of my youth. I was there from the very beginning. Well ok, maybe not the sunset strip “pre-record deal” beginning but I eagerly…

Hey Rolling Stone! Get Off My Lawn!

Hey Rolling Stone! Get Off My Lawn!

Hey, Rolling Stone! Get Off My Lawn! So there I was minding my own business until someone sent me a link to read an article. Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Hair Metal Albums of All Time, interesting because as a teenager from 83-89 I was fully engaged in the world of hair metal and I pretty much recall the ever pompous Rolling Stone pretty much ignoring the entire genre if not openly mocking it. First I…
