Damaj – Ashen Path

  Damaj – Ashen Path Scottish thrashers Damaj have been very quiet for some time and the reason is their debut album Ashen Path. I have been a fan of this band since their EP “The Contract” arrived on my desk. From there I got to see them live pretty soon after and I cannot count how...

Black Coffee – Take ...

  Black Coffee – Take One OK, I am going to open with a massive frustration of mine as of late. I have no issue with the amount of talent out there today, the UK is full to bursting with amazing young bands but recently I am being inundated with fresh, brilliant and unsigned American...

The Midnight Dogs Se...

  The Midnight Dogs Self Titled Album Having seen this Leicester based band recently, I wanted to review their album. Anyone who has seen this band will know that they play rock n roll with a punk edge to it. Most of the tracks on this were written by Rob, Steve, and Dan, but there were...

Album Review – Diffe...

  Album Review – Different Beings Being Different by West Thebarton So I’m reviewing a release from a band from Adelaide, Australia, named after a part of a suburb far away from the market I’m reviewing this album release for. The simple reason for that is because the UK will take this...

Album Review: Kings ...

  Album Review: Kings Among Scotland – Anthrax There are venues across the globe that are legendary. Every town has a place that the locals can let loose and get amongst it. This album (and DVD) was recorded at the almost-mythological Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, which has become the...

The good news for Te...

  The good news for TesseracT fans is that the new album Sonder builds on where the band left off and this is no backward step. Even more exciting is that Dan Tompkins stays in the role of lead vocals which is a bit of effort for a band that changes vocalists on a biennial cycle....

Halo Tora – Man of S...

  Halo Tora – Man of Stone, First Chapter I can recall about six years ago moaning about the lack of development and risk taking within the world of progressive rock\metal. Often derided as a bunch of Peart worshipping anorak’s by the ‘mainstream’ I was concerned that we were becoming a...

The Dead Daisies – Burn It Down

  The Dead Daisies – Burn It Down   For me The Dead Daisies have been flirting with greatness for some time. Live they are incredible and with the last studio album  Make Some noise we saw a massive step up for the band. When I reviewed that back in 2015 I stated for the record they would become the next arena band and I would suspect them to start headlining festivals. Today that got a whole lot closer with the release of “Burn It Down” The album opens with a lazy assed riff and drums with an attitude all of their own, it swings into Corabi’s melodies beautifully and I cannot over emphasize the importance that the hiring of the...

SAXON ALBUM REVIEW

  Where were you in ’79 when the dam began to burst, did you check us out down at the local show? Yes, Biff we tried to climb the fence at the Balloch Rock Festival to see you, not quite secondary school kids taking our lives in our hands. The festival took place in the bear park,...

Album Review Artist- Rick Parfitt Album- Over and Out Reviewr- Simon Larkin I remember writing the review for Motorheads Live album ‘Clean the Clock’ that was released after Lemmy’s death and having many of the same emotions whilst listening to it. This one though is a much tougher listen, it’s almost as though Rick knew it was the end of the road. I am gonna be honest, big Scotsman or not, I managed to hold it together, feeling sad but holding it in, until ‘Without You’. At that point the damn bust and a wee tear or three were shed. I defy any true Parfitt fan to hold it together! Self pity out the way,...
