The Intelligent Music Project is a Bulgarian rock band or, the more precise, a project that was created by Milen Vrabevski, a Bulgarian businessman and patron of the arts. It appears that he writes and directs all of the songs performed by the project and he adds to unit through the use of many well..
The genre we call Classic Rock has earned its name by virtue of two main characteristics, namely, its quality and its age. With the benefit of hindsight, we can look back over the decades and focus on recordings that seemed to capture the zeitgeist and epitomise the music of their time. Often it seems that,..
There are bands that are acknowledged as having been highly influential in the development of rock music even if they failed to achieve widespread commercial success in their day. Then there are those that have been highly influential but seem to have quietly disappeared and been forgotten about. I think Illinois-based band, Trouble, despite being..
Here endeth the decades-long wait for a decent CD version of Animation... Artists often find themselves at a crossroads by their third release (there's even an unofficial syndrome named for that very quandary), and when change is afoot, the fan base can quickly become disenchanted.

London-based three-piece Mountain Caller have released their debut album 'Chronicle 1: The Truthseeker'.

Just over a year ago, Leigh released Raised By Wolves - Part 1, which garnered some great reviews and ended up in several "Top 5" lists for 2020, much to Leigh's..
If you didn’t pay attention first time around (shame on you!), the Sweet Oblivion project is masterminded by the Italian label Frontiers Music, which has quite a number of successful all-star bands in its roster. This particular project is built around the talent of legendary Geoff Tate, with the help of some amazing musicians from..
Laced In Lust is a rather curiously titled Australian sleaze rock band with First Bite being their debut release. They have been deliciously described as having a sound like a sleazy Status Quo and so many music fans get a bit sniffy when you mention the Quo but the early Status Quo of Piledriver and..
