Sari Schorr – Never Say Never

  Sari Schorr – Never Say Never The woman with the beautiful voice and just as beautiful soul is back with a new engine room and a new album, 11 songs to make you think, to make you remember your past both good and bad, to move you, to fill your heart and to live with you for a lifetime. Before I played this album I was filled with excitement and trepidation. I have lived with her debut “Force of Nature” these past two years. It is constantly on my Ipod and in that time I have managed to see this woman play two of my favourite shows, both played in stunning old churches in Glasgow. Both shows saw tears on my cheeks purely from the...

  Bad Touch – Shake A Leg I will start this review with a fact, Bad Touch are one of the best live bands the UK has to offer. They have toured every town across this island in search of their dream. It grinds my gears when I think that the band have been on the go for nine years and I...

  Darkness Divine – Prelude I know for a fact not many of you will have heard the name Darkness Divine and I do not blame you as the band is not even one year old yet. I found the band as support recently in Glasgow and they were very impressive. Glasgow has a lot of great bands but this...

Greybeards Are Perfect For The Wilder Minds

Album Review: Greybeards Are Perfect For The Wilder Minds Greybeards have recently released their album “For The Wilder Minds” through Attitude Recordings, and what an album it is too. First up is “Fast Asleep” with a great layered introduction giving a great rocking vibe all the way. Then in kicks Olle’s vocals. Wow. They are incredible, distinct and sounding like Olle is the metal love child of Blackie Lawless and Justin Hawkins. This is a great rock and roll track with the guitar solos having a distinctly 60’s rock and roll sound to them that just fits right in. It’s like Ingemar is channelling Chuck Berry. The bass has a wonderful...

DEE SNIDER – FOR THE LOVE OF METAL

DEE SNIDER – FOR THE LOVE OF METAL Iconic metal vocalist Dee Snider’s new album is a love letter to everything good about metal. “For the Love of Metal” is the latest solo offering from the former Twisted Sister frontman. Teaming up with Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta, the album features 12 songs of authentic metal. Released July 27th. The album opens with “Lies are a Business”. Immediately I was blown away by the speedy, metal sound. I know that Twisted Sister had a heavy side, but I’m much more accustomed to the lighter, more radio friendly sound of the singles. This high pace, in your face sound sets a precedent for the rest of the album that...

NINE INCH NAILS – BAD WITCH In 2016 Nine Inch Nails planned on making a trilogy of E.P.s. Trent Reznor, the main man behind NIN, explained that he initially wanted to make 1 large album, but instead decided to experiment and split it into three parts. This would help to maintain the momentum...

Primal Fear – Apocalypse

 Primal Fear – Apocalypse Primal Fear, formed in 1997, are at the forefront of German Metal, and they’re a household name in the Metal genre in general. Their latest album, “Apocalypse” (released August 10th on Frontiers Music) sets a high standard for fresh, gritty speed metal. Apocalypse has an authentic, classic speed metal sound. There’s a real Judas Priest feel throughout, emphasized by singer Ralf Scheepers’ (formerly of Gamma Ray) high-pitched, soaring vocals. I really enjoyed the style and I appreciated the albums uncompromising commitment to pure, in your face metal. “Apocalypse”, the titular and opening track, is a spooky,...

Kenny Dubman – American Songbook It was two years ago I discovered Kenny Dubman with his incredible release “ Reckless Abandon”. I was a little shocked to see that all that time had passed as that album is never far away and has been played to death in this house. It also came out of the blue...

Album Review: Enuff Z’Nuff – Diamond Boy E’nuff Z’nuff, known for their hit’s “Fly High Michelle” and “New Thing”, are releasing their latest album, “Diamond Boy” on August 10th. Their fourteenth studio album, E’nuff Z’nuff started in 1984 and are renowned for their melodic, power pop sound. Diamond Boy opens with “Transcendence” a minute-long intro track featuring choir-like vocals. It sets the tone for the rest of the album without diving straight in. The first few songs highlight everything there is to know about Enuff Z’nuff: Catchy melodic vocal lines, poppy rhythms and an overall atmospheric, spacey sound. “Diamond Boy”, the titular...
