Act of Defiance – Old Scars New Wounds – 2017

This is not my first encounter with Act of Defiance. It’s not even my first review of one of their albums. The review was, however, lost during a faulty backup of the site. I remember it as very good musically and this has similar qualities. This second album – Old Scars New Wounds – doesn’t sound as much Megadeth as the debut though. It’s not strange at all that this came across in the sound...

Amy MacDonald – Under Stars – 2017

I Believe I own Amy Macdonald’s first two albums. They are very nice listening experiences. I like her voice a lot. It sounds like she’s singing somewhere in the back of her through and it gives a certain sound. I suppose Amy’s music qualify as country pop but to be honest I don’t hear much country music in there. The exception is in her voice. It’s hard to explain but there’s something country there. Apart...

The Lost Boy – 1997 – sequel to a child called it

The Lost boy is the continuing story that began with A Child Called It. The first chapter kinda stays in the story told in the previous book. Maybe it’s a little more in-depth than the story that was told in A Child Called it. As a whole, I feel that this isn’t filled with descriptions of physical abuse. That doesn’t mean that it’s any easier to understand how a mother can treat her child this way. And even...

Alice Cooper – Goes to Hell – 1976

Alice Cooper Goes to Hell follows in the musical wake after the legendary masterpiece Welcome to my Nightmare. The songs seem to be written with the stage in mind and how they could be performed live. It’s theatrical and would fit on any musical scene. At least if you’re talking about rock scenes and other equivalents. But I don’t think there’s any real classics on this album. Of course, we got the main title but...

Overkill – The Grinding Wheel – 2017

Overkill was formed in 1980 and this is their 18th album. That gives an average of about one album every two years. Of course this is not evenly spread out through the years; sometime it has been only one year and sometimes three. But as a whole the albums have been coming pretty steady! I think that’s highly impressive even though they’ve changed some members over the years. Well, most bands have! The singer Bobby...

Thunder – Rip it up – 2017

I don’t know when I first heard about Thunder but if memory serves I think I bought my first album with them by ’mistake’. Obviously it wasn’t a mistake since I planned to buy it and I would also consider it a lucky shot since the first acquaintance with their music was a bliss. I really liked that first album I heard, which was Behind Closed Doors from 1995 if I’m not mistaken. Since then...

Golden Queens Commando – 1982 – Asian Action Deluxe!

Golden Queens Commando is a movie I’ve seen many times. I wonder if it’s released on DVD? I don’t think so. At least I have it on VHS and I’m not gonna part from it. It’s a cheezy Asian flick dubbed into English. We get to meet these 6 or seven women. One by one we’re introduced to them and we get their story of how and why they were sent to prison. They all...

Maze Runner – 2018 – The Death Cure

I’m not sure if you even need to have seen the two previous parts of this story before you see The Death Cure. About the only thing that comes from the other movies is the characters, but sure… they have some relationships to each other that is nice to know about. I must confess that I didn’t have many memories left from the second film though. That must mean that I didn’t like it very...

Miss Violence – 2013 – Slowly the truth reveils itself…

“On her eleventh birthday Angeliki jumps from the balcony and falls to her death with a smile on her face.” That was about all the info I needed before I knew I had to get this movie. These days I’m more interested of strong and repulsive flicks than those that are obvious and gory. Not that gory flicks are all that bad either but I like to think and not get all the info served...
