Only “the most exciting blues rock super-group in the UK” right now. That’s the label being applied to Malone Sibun by the European Blues Awards ceremony, despite not yet having an album released. Malone Sibun are a partnership of soulful UK-based Detroit blues-rock star Marcus Malone and British blues rock guitarist Innes Sibun, who met..
Anchor Lane are a young Scottish band in the Classic rock mould, hailing from Glasgow and continuing a proud tradition of cracking bands from that city. They’ve been together since (I think) 2017, having released a 4-track EP New Beginnings that year. Since then, they’ve plied their trade in the time-honoured manner, touring constantly and..
I’ve recently reviewed Danny and his band playing live in Chesterfield (see Live Reviews section, 14 October). Danny has been around for over 15 years, constantly performing live and being feted by Planet Rock and Classic Rock as a rare talent. Danny’s studio albums have simply got better and better (from a strong base), last..
"A German quintet on the path of salvation" was one description of this new alternative rock /metal band when they launched their debut album in the summer of 2017 – largely because the album was called Path of Salvation! This was a well-produced mixture of classic rock/hardrock/metal tracks with strong melodies and good vocals –..
Danny Bryant has been a stalwart on the European blues scene for over 15 years, having carved a name for himself the old-fashioned way – he’s now played over 2000 shows around the world and now has a sizeable and loyal fan base. He’s been hailed as a “National Blues Treasure” by Planet Rock and..
Hmm…..the Black Star Riders 4th album came out in September and mines the same vein of classic rock as its three predecessors. Another ten tracks which are essentially in the same mould as 2017s Heavy Fire and the previous The Killer Instinct and All Hell Breaks Loose. Fans of the Riders will know exactly what..
This is my other review from earlier in the year that got "lost" in the sad demise of the Classic Rock Society. But seeing as Inglorious are just about to start out on a new Autumn tour, billed as "the places they didn't get to visit last time", I thought it helpful to give a..
Fans of European heavy rock, and particularly Swedish hard rock bands, will need no introduction to Joseph Tholl. He's been around since 2007 or thereabouts, with a wide range of bands starting with his own Joseph Tholl and the Escapades album dating from 2008, this being a pleasant collection of tunes that are distinctly softer..
First, a confession. I have to tell you that this review relates to an album that came out at the end of last year but missed the cut in the sad demise of the CRS magazine "Rock Society". When I originally reviewed this album, I thought it was so good that I went straight out..
