"Your Favorites" is the raw and primitive debut album from Dictator Ship, the latest band to have been signed up by Swedish record label The Sign Records. (It seems The Sign are on a mission to spread the word about 'Scando-Rock' in all its forms to a global audience!) The CD continues a recent trend..
Heavily inspired by iconic super-villains from the Marvel and DC school of fame, The Fangs Of The Dodo are five otherworldly and downright wacky individuals hailing from Bath and collectively producing some fairly dark, gothic, art-rock that will delight fans of My Chemical Romance, Creeper and Evanescence. The principal characters in this stage-show are Count..
Combining elements of 70's punk, post-punk and garage rock, Swedish indie-band Rotten Mind are back with their fourth full length album. As one of the four original bands affiliated with Lövely Records, Rotten Mind had released three studio albums; “I’m Alone Even With You” (2015), “Rotten Mind” (2017) and “Fading into Oblivion” (2018), their style..
In another life, on another planet, Davey Dodds used to be the front man of the prog-rock band Red Jasper. His individual style of song-writing gave the band a unique character. They were signed to the Dutch record label S I Music but when that folded in 1994, Davey quietly drifted away from the music..
Despite it being 24 years, the spectre of the Max Cavalera's acrimonious departure from Brazillian pioneers Sepultura still hangs thick. Even practically on the eve of the release of their new album there was yet another spat based on an interview that vocalist Derrick Green gave recently, a positive comment nicely stirred up and twisted...
This isn't the first (and won't be the last) time I've rattled on about the Esoteric label and their powerhouse reissues of classic progressive rock titles, such as their new four-disc expanded edition of the triumphant Renaissance album Turn Of The Cards. Released in 1974 - squarely in the middle of their legendary run of..
The infernal boys are back! On April 3rd, Lucifer Star Machine will release their fourth album, “The Devil’s Breath”. A straight-shooting record filled with thirteen tracks guaranteed to turn every listener into a fully energised pogoer again! “The Devil’s Breath”, is a 42-minute long road to hell that lures the listener with huge choruses, infernal..
Music afficianados of the 70s and 80s are well aware of the musical contributions of The Babys and its members. John Waite’s unique rock tenor graced solo hits such as Missing You, and keyboardist Jonathan Cain became a part of Journey’s signature sound. But before those projects, The Babys made their mark. Founded in London..
Comparable to the slightly pastoral prog of Charisma labelmates Genesis circa the Trespass album, with strong hints also of early Traffic... Brian Davison. Plenty of people might be aware of him, at a guess, as he was, and remains, best known as the drummer with The Nice, the band which propelled Keith Emerson into the..
Better late than never in reviewing this fine rock and roll album by the groove heavy Irish/Australian rockers, Jailbirds. Both Irish and Australian rock bands seem to be at their best when they produce raw, high energy rock and if cigarettes and alcohol are involved then even better; maybe not the best choice for a..
