For the Demented 0

Annihilator releases For the Demented

I have actually missed out on several releases from Annihilator in recent years. it’s kinda strange since Jeff Waters is one of my all-time favorite guitar players. He and Annihilator always seem to do something fresh and inventive on the albums. It’s not just the song, he’s also the master of riffs. There’s no reason to think that it will be any different with For the Demented. I will look forward to it and, in...

In Memoriam – Fats Domino – 1928-2017

Once upon a time, I collected as many classic songs as I could on cassette tapes. There were Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry of course. There was probably Bill Haley and there sure was Fats Domino. He was a true pioneer of rock n roll and it’s not hard to understand why if you take your time and listen to him. His piano playing might not be as distinctive as that of Jerry Lee Lewis...

In Memoriam – Umberto Lenzi – 1931-2017

It’s kinda sad really. Umberto Lenzi was a really good filmmaker and did movies in all kind of genres. Maybe he wasn’t a master of them all but he was close enough to make fine movies in every aspect. The sad thing is that he’s most known for the cannibal film Cannibal Ferox, a movie that supposedly was banned in as many as 31 countries. If that’s true or if it was a way to...

Walk the Earth 0

Europe releases new album

The last few albums with Europe has been quite nice. Some better than others of course but I like the concept. It’s not that kind of “hit pop metal” like during The Final Countdown era. It’s more straightforward hard rock these days. Walk the Earth should be interesting to hear. To be released October 20th, 2017.

Transistion State 0

OZ releases new album

I have a couple of the early albums by Oz. For some reason, I have never listed much to them even if they’re actually really good. Now Transition State is released on October 20th, 2017. I’m excited. Should be interesting! The cover art looks fantastic too!

Monstrocity 0

Madam X releases Monstrocity

Do you remember 1984 when We Reserve the Right to Rock came out? There was also a hit single – High in High School. What happened then? One of the Petrucci sisters –  Roxy Petrucci joined the all-female band Vixen but I don’t know what happened to the other members. They just disappeared I guess. Monstrocity must be one of the most anticipated this entire decade. I must have it! It will be released on October 13th,...

baeutiful trauma 0

Pink releases Beautiful Trauma

Pink is one of the most unusual artists in my frame of liked artists. Not because she’s any different from other pop artists. Well, maybe she is or I wouldn’t like her music so much. But as an old metal-head, I find it remarkable that I like her albums so much. I don’t have all of them but I do have a few and they’re very nice to listen to. Pink has a great voice and...

Tom Petty 0

Tom Petty Passed away

To write an obituary or something similar about an artist I never really listened to and don’t know much about is hard. Sure I’ve heard him over the years but it never really grabbed me. I was a metal head after all. I did enjoy The Travelling Wilburys though. So for me, Tom Petty was first at foremost one-fifth of the super-band also containing Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne. It’s unquestionable how...
