LIV KRISTINE – Vervain

To a backdrop of Norwegian beauty roamed a little girl known as Liv Kristine Espenæs Krull, and as the years went by she grew up to be a very prolific female front woman who not only tackled vocal duties for Leaves’ Eyes and Theatre of Tragedy, but also ventured into solo singing territories.  These days and… Read more »


ENUFF Z’NUFF – Like a Sumo Wrestler and a Cupcake!

Not many bands deserve the respect that should be laid at the feet of this Illinois-based rock band.  Since 1984, they have worked hard and relentlessly plied their art which is an infectious pop-driven form of accessible and at times quirky style of rock music.  Their self-titled debut album was unveiled in 1989 complete with… Read more »


EVERGREY – Embracing A Sense Of Hope

Back in 1998 a Swedish metal band went to Gothenburg to record their debut studio album The Dark Discovery not realizing that in 2014 they would still be a functioning band and ready to unveil album number nine.  Hymns for the Broken captures a band in touch with their strengths yet moving in to a… Read more »


CROBOT – Something Supernatural

Like someone leaving the window open as a gush of wind enters a busy office and papers are blown all over the place, paperwork flies here and there captured in a moment of brief chaos; this is the imagery that might accompany listening to Crobot and their studio long player called Something Supernatural. This Pottsville-based… Read more »


VIRGIL & THE ACCELERATORS – Army Of Three

A brisk and emotive concoction awaits those who venture near this UK-based blues orientated rock n’roll three-piece.  With a line-up which includes Virgil McMahon attacking the guitar and dealing admirably on lead vocals, drummer and backing vocalist Gabriel McMahon plus Jack Alexander Timmis-Lakland providing bass and backing vocals, it is time for you to grip… Read more »


ZODIAC – Sonic Child

Adopting the 70’s work ethic of prolific and rapid releases, the German emotive rocking quartet follow-up last year’s A Hiding Place with their third studio album.  At one time it wouldn’t be too hard to find descriptions of this band being described as bluesy rockers but it’s too dismissive of how versatile they are.  Sonic Child… Read more »


AMULET – The First

The debut album by these London-based metal hoodlums echoes the debut Iron Maiden album with moments of instrumentation which is comparable to prime cuts of Motörhead.  Is this a good thing?  Naturally if you’re rather partial to the resurgence of another NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) which was in prominence relatively briefly in the… Read more »


WORK OF ART – Framework

It has been a long, long road for these Swedish melodic rockers.  Formed back in 1992 and only now preparing to release their third studio album, you’d be somewhat puzzled at the time line.  Imagine if you will a group of talented melodic rockers only managing three albums of material which was poor in quality over… Read more »


AMPLIFIER – Mystoria

Front man and main brain behind the mighty England-based progressive rockers Amplifier would possibly admit that he wasn’t prepared for the pivotal impact ex-Oceansize guitarist Steve Durose and bassist Alex ‘Magnum’ Redhead would have when they joined the line-up.  Since they added their abilities and talent to the music the quartet have certainly been prolific….
