Doro – Forever Warriors / Forever United (Nuclear Blast)

Ok, so; When is a double album not a double album? When it’s actually two albums except that they are not sold separately. Yeah, ok..so that implies that there is a difference between them somehow, but they are supposed to… Continue Reading →

Voodoo Circle – Raised On Rock (AFM)

If you have a penchant for Melodic Metal’s heady late 80’s period of wealth there are still plenty of routes open to you if you want to reconnect with those halcyon days. Many of the bands have reformed, some of… Continue Reading →

The Dead Daisies – Make Some Noise (SPV)

Every few years or so, there always seems to be a huge influx of musicians already in bands looking to collaborate with each other for various reasons. Some of these collaborations become fully fledged bands with a life of their… Continue Reading →

Primitai – Night Brings Insanity (S/R)

Now this is a heart-warming listen and then some. Boasting a denim-and-leather fuelled assault of unashamed melodic metal, this Berkshire-based five-piece have chosen to roar out of the traps all guns blazing with their fourth full-length. Polished and professional, there’s… Continue Reading →

Spiritual Beggars – Sunrise To Sundown (Inside Out)

You know, I tend to grit my teeth whenever I hear a new rock or metal band described as a “Super Group”, an overused moniker that often means a hodgepodge of disparate artists thrown together by label pressures or a… Continue Reading →

Resurrection Kings – S/T (Frontiers)

Way back in 87 on the cusp of 14 I ventured into Our Price in North Finchley. There I purchased Constrictor by Alice Cooper. It started my path to the glorious darkside. I didn’t linger too long in the world… Continue Reading →

Black Wizard – New Waste (Listenable)

I’m not a particularly superstitious type, but sometimes I feel that the first album review of the year can set the tone for the next twelve months, and my first to be sent to the editor, if not necessarily the… Continue Reading →

Oblivious – Out of Wilderness (Gaphals)

Despite this being their third album, albeit apparently after a line-up overhaul and label change, Oblivious are an act that I’ve been, well, oblivious to. So, is ‘Out of Wilderness’ the album to amend their status on my ever burgeoning… Continue Reading →

Wolfpakk – Rise Of The Animal (AFM)

Ah, Wolfpakk, so we meet again…and my, what big teeth you have! I had the honour of reviewing their previous outing “Cry Wolf” in 2013, which on the whole was very good (if I ignore the Michael Bolton meets Disney… 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 →

Winger – Better Days Comin’ (Frontiers)

Winger? On Ave Noctum??? What’s the world coming to? Actually I thought something very similar when I heard their largely overlooked “Pull” album back in 1993. Reportedly feeling annoyed and misrepresented by Beavis and Butthead’s portrayal of the band as… Continue Reading →

Journey + Whitesnake + Thunder – London Wembley Arena 29th May 2013

Coupled with the additional task of England vs Ireland at Wembley Stadium, tonight’s initial travel fears were subsided and after a relatively short queue, the stage was set. Opening band THUNDER are one of the most consistent live bands out… Continue Reading →
