  • LUCIFER – Occult of Personality

    The word "timeless" is sometimes used to describe music appealing to a broad audience.  Stockholm’s Lucifer have captured the sounds and sights of their music in a nice, custom-made capsule emanating the best musical strengths of the ‘70s with mysterious hints and wayward shadows from the ‘60s. Delivering a mixture of horror cinema, the occult, dark symbolism and Gothic elements

  • THE LICKERISH QUARTET - Interview with Roger Joseph Manning, Jr.

    Roger Joseph Manning, Jr., formerly of 90's power pop band Jellyfish has been busy since the band broke up in 1994.

  • ART OF SHOCK - Challenge Accepted

    What was once a busy touring season for musicians all over the world has become a season of quarantine, bringing back the garage band lifestyle to many eager musicians.  With cancellations, postponements and closed music venues in our headlines we have resorted to live-stream concerts from our living rooms and closed studios.  This could bring down the spirits of anyone

  • IN HEARTS WAKE - Fighting For The Underdog

    When one thinks about Metal and Australia, probably the first band that comes to mind is Sydney’s AC/DC. However, when it comes to newer music, Metalcore band In Hearts Wake have also made quite a name for themselves. Formed in early 2006 in Byron Bay, Australia, a beach town about 400 miles north of Sydney, In Hearts Wake released their

  • GREY DAZE - Making Amends

    Music is a form of magic that connects us together.  There are rhythms that send your body into movements that you can’t control; regardless of your health, ailments or age.  There are melodies that roll off the tongues of thousands; regardless of the languages they speak or the color of their skin.  There are harmonies that send chills up your

  • RICHIE KOTZEN - Mid-Life Rises

    Everyone has the visual of a man turning 50 years old.  You know it, the seemingly normal family man who turns his back on the conventional life in a futile attempt to reap long ago sown seeds of lost youth.  You might envision a balding man strutting into a Chevrolet dealership to purchase that Corvette that may have eluded him

  • CHERIE CURRIE - Blvds Of Splendor

    When iconic artists release new albums, the word “comeback” often finds its home in the headlines of media outlets.  But the album Blvds of Splendor is rock-solid proof that 70’s icon and former Runaways frontwoman, Cherie Currie, never went anywhere.  The album was released via Blackheart Records on April 28, 2020, and is locked and loaded with the classic rock

  • THE DODIES - It’s One Hell of a Ride

  • DANZIG - Danzig Sings Elvis - album review

    To some metal outsiders, Danzig doing an Elvis covers album might seem strange, but to Danzig fans this is a no-brainer.  Danzig has always had an Elvis-like quality to his singing style dating all the way back to his days in the Misfits.  Danzig has been working on this collection since 2016 along with guitarist Tommy Victor between their work

  • DOOL - Summerland - album review

    The members of Dool could be described as true wandering souls, in search of the most unique and diverse ways to accurately translate their ideas to music. Summerland is the Rotterdam group’s second effort, current statement and a step forward from debut Here Now There Then.  It takes their dark, experimental ambiance to parts unknown and places yet explored.  Vocalist

  • THE USED - Heartwork - album review

    The golden age of emo music has long since passed, but 2020 is seeing a massive resurgence of the post-hardcore subgenre that has taken fans on a nostalgic journey.  Fall Out Boy started touring again, My Chemical Romance got back together, and just like that it feels like 2004.  But what would an emo music comeback be without the trailblazers

  • METAL CHURCH - From The Vault - album review

    It’s hard to believe that Metal Church’s debut album came out in 1984. That’s coming up on 40 years of massive metal rockitude (that’s a word, right?).  As is the case with almost any band that has been around that long, there have been multiple line-up changes through the years but Mike Howe returned on vocals back in 2015 after

  • LUCIFER – III

    The Ides of March brought us the third offering from Stockholm’s soothing cult rock outfit Lucifer.  This is a band producing music that is subtle in sound but like any good spell-caster is potent in effect.  III pulls in your ear and maybe even your soul, hooked by the sorcery of Johanna Sadonis delivery and her surrounding wall of retro

  • TESTAMENT – Titans of Creation

    For the superstitiously inclined, 13 is a somewhat plagued number.  For Testament it stands for another landmark album of loud, Bay Area thrash with a namesake defining longevity, with time speaking for them. Their new onslaught incorporates all major earth bound elements, staying loyal to traditional ingredients while tossing some new additives into the eternal-bubbling cauldron.  Titans of Creation is

  • POLARIS - The Death of Me

    Australian metalcore phenoms Polaris have followed up their successful debut album, The Mortal Coil with the highly awaited The Death of Me. As might be expected by the name, this isn’t a peppy, upbeat record. Instead it is a heavy, highly emotion-filled outlook on the world that will most likely speak to many people at this time in history. The
