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..
We recorded the drums, bass, guitars and keys, as we always do. Then if I remember rightly, Andy put a monitor in the toilet... First off, let’s set something straight – Austin Gold is the name of a band, not a person. It grew out of a standard Peterborough pub blues band, and is named..
The Far Meadow are a 5 piece symphonic prog rock band from London who’ve now been playing for five years. They’re a band at the mellower end of the prog spectrum. There’re no lengthy ‘for the sake of it’ guitar/keyboard soloing, or raucous instrumental histrionics, just plenty of virtuoso playing, some epic songs, plus a..
...this album is definitely, almost defiantly, grandiose in its scope and range Salutogenesis is the debut album from Germany’s Soulsplitter, who’re an arts and music community as opposed to a band. There may be only four people in the actual band but, in the three year gestation period for this album, around fifty people were..
It's been a great five years for Québec-based Mystery and their fans since the release of their previous live album Tales From The Netherlands in 2014. In that time, they've brought formidable vocalist and front man Jean Pageau on board, released two of their strongest studio albums to date, and played numerous Canadian and European..
The Ferrymen is one of the cases where the term “super group” does not sound like an exaggeration. The threesome of Mike Terrana (don’t expect us to put down the zillion bands he has performed with), Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, who plays guitar, bass and keyboards on the album and is the main composer) and..
Annie is a revelation throughout ... the standard that she continues to reach four decades on from the first release of these albums is quite astonishing. In 2011 Renaissance undertook a US tour which consisted of them performing their classic albums Turn Of The Cards and Scheherazade & Other Stories in their entirety. Here in..
It felt like a cathartic goodbye to both the band members for at least another year and to the much loved venue, sadly, forever. A truly unique and emotional night was in store for all attendees of The Citadel in St Helens on June 14th 2019. This gig was special for a number of reasons...
During their performance at Rock in Rio Festival last Friday (4 October), Brazilian metal icons SEPULTURA unveiled the first details of their upcoming studio album, and now want to make it official for their worldwide fan base; the band's next full-length release will be a thrilling concept album titled Quadra, scheduled to see the light of..
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..
