Samarkind- Samarkind

  Samarkind- Samarkind What the hell are they putting in the water in Ireland? The emerald isle already has a host of brilliant young talent, The Answer, Baleful Creed, Gasoline Outlaws and The Screaming Eagles to name but a few. Yes, they have also produced gods in the likes of thin Lizzy and Gary Moore so be prepared to add another name to the list, Samarkind are about to send shockwaves through the rock world with this debut release. From the moment opener “ Black Rain” hums its way to your ears till the bluesy “Blue Mountain” fades out you are going to be in blues/rock heaven. I can happily say this is the best debut of 2017 for...

  Album Review: Ruby the Hatchet – ‘Planetary Space Child’  Likely that this may be my shortest review ever as typing time is not listening to Ruby the Hatchet (Ruby) time! Ruby are a five piece from the US that exist in the 1960s and travel to the present to blow our minds. Planetary...

ALBUM REVIEW: Cradle of Filth bring glorious gothic terror to bear on Cryptoriana IF ‘Hammer of Witches’ proved that Cradle of Filth had regained their edgy artistic mojo then new release ‘Cryptorian’ shifts them up to another level entirely. This is the marriage of previous musical excesses and a true sense of gothic terror – not in the mainstream sense of ‘goths’ but reaching into the dark labyrinthine murk of Victorian streets, where danger and sensuality stand side-by-side. ‘Cryptoriana’ is a tapestry of lust and evil delivered with all that you would expect from Dani and co. Apart...

HOW DARE YOU new album  release date 13.10.17 [Metropolis Records] Thirteen. It’s a really lucky number. When you turn thirteen you get to have a bar mitzvah.  That’s the definition of lucky. Want another example? If you live on the thirteenth floor of an  apartment building, you get to tell people you live on the fourteenth floor, and this allows you to come off like a slightly higher roller. You see where we are going with this? Thirteen is not bad  at all…nay, it’s good! Name a band that has made thirteen albums besides Sparks. You can’t do it.  Now you can.  Electric Six joins the lucky thirteen club with their new release ‘How Dare...

Grand Royale give us the Breaking News
