Supersuckers – Suck It (SPV)

‘All Of The Time’ opens the 30th anniversary of this twelfth Supersuckers studio album with a bit of studio anger outtake. Which oddly for this most rocking of rawk n roll bands seems to run through this album. The song… Continue Reading →

The Wild! – Wild at Heart (SPV)

It’s rock n roll time. The publicity promises an all killer no filler hard hitting blues-influenced rock concoction. There’s even an exclamation mark in the band’s name. There is talk of punk rock attitude, swagger and reckless abandon. There’s no… Continue Reading →

The Clamps – Blend, Shake, Swallow (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Italian trio The Clamps play a slightly stoner influenced brand of blazing trashy punk ‘n’ metal garage rock ‘n’ roll. Cranking up with the opening instrumental ‘Barracuda’, an exercise in shouting without words “we really know what a riff is!”,… Continue Reading →

Bombus – Repeat Until Death (Century Media)

With Sweden’s big, bad rockers now happily settled in at label giants Century Media, this new album of theirs is going to have to break the mould to impress. Can they create the kingmaker? Things are sounding good. What we… Continue Reading →

The Shrine – Rare Breed (Century Media)

The Shrine’s last outing ‘Bless off’ was the right side of heavy, with ‘Rare Breed’ they continue to cross borders with their love of rock ‘n’ roll, US punk and a touch of stoner and psychedelic added for a complete… Continue Reading →

Alfahanne – Blod Eld Alfa (Dark Essence)

This rag-tag-bag of Swedes pretty much came out of nowhere delivering their storming first album ‘Alfapokalypse’ onto the scene and giving it a real kick up the arse in the process back in early 2014. It’s an album that still… Continue Reading →

Barbatos – Straight Metal War (Hells Headbangers)

After years of familiarity with a bunch of oddball horror, sleaze and psychobilly punk rock bands embracing violence, war, peace, sexual depravity and other general lawlessness, it’s difficult not to feel a little bit jaded when you come across a… Continue Reading →

Live Albums – Blues Pills v Zodiac (Nuclear Blast / Napalm Records)

This week sees blues rock aficionados Zodiac and Blues Pills both release an album of live material. The former have their Road Tapes, Vol. 1 for sale whilst Blues Pills have the simply-named Blues Pills Live for your delectation. If you… Continue Reading →

Eldorado – Babylonia Haze (S/R)

There’s a vintage quality to much of the rock n’ roll music that Eldorado peddle. The Madrid quartet are bluesy enough to draw comparison to bands like Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake and Led Zep, but its their groove, moxy and hep… Continue Reading →

Orange Goblin – Back From The Abyss (Candlelight)

2015 sees Orange Goblin celebrate 20 years, and already they have announced a pretty special show at London’s Desertfest playing their classic ‘The Big Black’ in its entirety as well as doubtless a few special surprises.  Yet, despite that, and… Continue Reading →

Jackson Firebird – Cock Rockin’ (Napalm Records)

Crude, lewd Australian dudes Jackson Firebird are a duo utterly embedded in the world of sex, whiskey and rock n’ roll. Following the past rules that seem to come with the sleaze rock territory, guitarist Brendan Harvey and drummer Dale… Continue Reading →

Blackbird – Of Heroes And Enemies (Pure Rock)

I suspect that this may ruffle some feathers but from the first crash of a chord here, there is a question that needs to be squared up to. Philosophy 101: If Airbourne took a template from a thirty year old… Continue Reading →
