White Wizzard – Infernal Overdrive (M Theory)

White Wizzard – Infernal Overdrive (M Theory)

I never really rated the last two albums by White Wizzard, they went into a shady inconsistent path for my tastes. This one I take with apprehension…and quickly discovered the band have turned my thoughts around. The album sounds like it’s really two releases. The.. Read More
Anvil – Pounding the Pavement (SPV)

Anvil – Pounding the Pavement (SPV)

It takes me about a minute to realise that Anvil’s first track Bitch in the Box isn’t about matricide or anything so eeeeeevil and metal. How things have changed. When I first picked up an Anvil record, Forged in Fire, from a second hand record.. Read More

Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Another review, and yet another band I’d never heard of, in this case Purple Hill Witch. Despite hailing from the wintery realms of Norway, they are not a new addition to that region’s pantheon of corpse paint wearing child frighteners, rather an act that are.. Read More

Procession – Doom Decimation (High Roller)

High Spirits - Escape (High Roller)

High Spirits – Escape (High Roller)

The ever reliable High Spirits, I missed the chance to see them earlier this year as I had ticket in hand, but no bloody trains, at least I have memories of the last time I swung my hips to this infectious band. Led by multitasker.. Read More
Jack Starr's Burning Starr - Stand Your Ground (High Roller)

Jack Starr’s Burning Starr – Stand Your Ground (High Roller)

I’m all for a bit self promotion – if you think you’ve just recorded a great album then that’s a fabulous thing and you should promote this. Let the world know that your album is pretty bloody good and then wait hopefully for people to.. Read More
Venomous Maximus - No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Venomous Maximus – No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Texans aren’t generally known for doing things on a small scale so when it comes to generosity with classic sounding riffs we should be able to expect something big from the Lone Star state. Venomous Maximus bring in said generosity with third long player, “No.. Read More
