Interviews

  • Blood, Blades and Nugent; the American Way.

    NUGE!!  How else would one expect Ted Nugent to answer the phone?  Nugent says hello with piss and vinegar in his voice.  “I’m doing so good it’s stupid and willing to share it with you.  I hear you deserve me this morning,” he says jokingly.  Taking a break from his morning hunt, Nugent gladly tells about his life.  “It’s so

  • EDEN'S CURSE Nothing Comes from Staring at Another Sheep's Bottom

    If you hear any S.O.S. this year, let it stand for Symphony of Sin which is the latest and quite plausibly the greatest album thus far by European-based melodic progressive rockers Eden’s Curse.  The quintet, by their own admission has surpassed the previous albums in quality and performance to deliver thirteen songs which retain the melodies and the arrangements they

    Continue Reading.

  • STORMZONE - "It Lives on a Stage"

    The story begins during what has become synonymous as the ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal’ when John ‘Harv’ Harbinson and Davy ‘Basher’ Bates received the taste of the lifestyle that is associated with rock music.  They both received their experience whilst performing in Sweet Savage, a well-respected NWOBHM band during that movement.  Harbinson was the vocalist for a brief

  • MINDSET EVOLUTION - "An Attitude of Gratitude"

    Fate is an interesting concept, and becomes somewhat curious when life changes thanks to a pivotal moment.  When the path that you’re on can clearly be defined by that one special encounter, and all things you experience from then onwards stem to a singular point in time.  This outlook or philosophy is highly relevant to the band Mindset Evolution who

  • DEF LEPPARD Standing The Test Of Time

    August 3, 1987 was the release date for one of the most iconic albums in rock history. Def Leppard’s Hysteria, being their fourth studio album, sold over 20 million copies worldwide, which also included 12 million in the U.S. and brought seven hit singles. Just three weeks after surgery, Phil Collen sits in the California sun and shares his recovery. “It’s

  • THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT – Southern Rockers from...

    Imagine if you will that you’re stranded on a small desert island with a palm tree for company and plenty of sand granules which get everywhere.  You inhabit this small piece of land surrounded by the sea for many weeks without noticing that there is a working radio that could help you get a message out.  That sort of scenario

  • JAN KUEHNEMUND An Echo Transcending through Time

    When asked how she was doing on August 31, 2013, Vixen's founder Jan Kuehnemund replied in her soft-spoken voice, “[I'm doing] pretty good. Still working on songs, and still doing it.” Little did the world know of Kuehnemund's silent struggle with cancer, which claimed her life on Thursday, October 10, 2013- a mere 6 weeks later. She was never one to complain,

  • NEW MODEL ARMY It’s just about what it’s like Being Alive

    Since 1984 and their debut album Vengeance, New Model Army have moved forward on their own terms.  The band has a reputation built up due to their truthful attitude towards the music press which left them being cast in an awkward light, and arguably created a distraction from the music that was being created.  Lyrics which touched on political issues, family relationships

  • IWRESTLEDABEARONCE Late For Nothing

    Most bands want their music to be taken seriously, some to the point of considering their music an art form and insisting that it should be respected as such. Iwrestledabearonce (IWABO) is not one of those bands. Humor is a big element with the group, but that doesn’t mean their music is all fun and games. With a unique and massive

  • EMPHATIC - Another Shot

    The phrase “arising from the ashes” is a cliché that is often used in music to describe a band regrouping after a poorly selling album, or perhaps a change in lineup. However overused as that phrase may be, in the case of the band Emphatic it almost seems too tame. How many bands can survive a complete lineup change where

  • STONE TEMPLE PILOTS with Chester Bennington – High Rise EP

    When Stone Temple Pilots fired their frontman Scott Weiland earlier this year, it came as no surprise to fans who had watched Weiland battle some personal demons; it's no secret that Weiland's career has been plagued by substance abuse and several arrests.

  • NEW MODEL ARMY - Between Dog and Wolf

    The 12th studio album by these well-respected UK-based alternative rockers should not disappoint their loyal fan-base and should also be something special for those who aren’t so familiar with their style.  Beginning with a tribal and prominent drumbeat to the backdrop of some spacious atmosphere, Horsemen gets the journey off to a fine start.
