Venom – From the Very Depths – 2015

I think that From the Very Depths, was the first album that I really listened to after I was discouraged by one of the more commercial albums where Cronos wasn’t present. I can’t remember which one though. But back in the day I really didn’t like it. But on the other hand, I didn’t really like the Black Metal album back in the day either. And, I don’t know why I started to listen to...

The Family Sowell – Time Travel – 2022

I don’t know much about the Family Sowell, or the Sowell Family. It seems to be an internet of TV phenomenon though. I like that they’re all siblings, at least that is my assumption and that they play and perform music together. But I’m not that familiar with them. I do tend to like acoustic music with banjoes in it though. And Banjo is one of the instruments this band uses along with fiddle, mandolin,...

Battle Beast – Circus of Doom – 2022

There’s really nothing else to do but confess. I don’t follow bands and album releases in the same the way I used to in my youth. Battle Beast and therefore Circus of Doom has completely passed me by. But I did a quick google search and Battle Beast is a band from Finland. They have been around since 2005 and Circus of Doom is their sixth studio album. The signature sound of Power Metal is...

Saxon – Carpe Diem – 2022

Saxon has been around forever at least in my life. Carpe Diem is their twenty-third studio album if I’m counting correctly. They released their first one in 1979 and I was nine years old. No wonder they have always been there for me. They started putting out records before I had a clue what Hardrock or Heavy Metal was. There have been some amazing songs of the years but as a whole, Saxon kinda suffers...

Megadeth – Youthanasia – 1994

I think the cover art of Youthanasia is the beast of all Megadeth’s releases. That, together with the title pun speaks to me. It’s unclear why the title is not written on it. Anyway, this album came out when Megadeth was in a particularly good place. The previous album Countdown to Extinction was a masterpiece in my mind and I think they wanted to do another album with that style. That’s pretty catchy melodies and...

Old Rockers Never Die 1

Marshall – Old Rockers Never Die – 2021

I got a message from Freddy Marshall the other day asking me to check out Old Rockers Never Die as it was hard and heavy. Now, I don’t necessarily need hard and heavy to like music or an album. At least not these days, I’ve become very eclectic with the years. But anyway, Old Rockers Never Die is definitely both hard and heavy. And, I like it! The cover art is very strange. You have...
