Thank Dan Lorenzo for The Cursed

A couple of weeks ago we ran a short blog and video (here) that Hades guitarist Dan Lorenzo made in tribute to Danzig and his dislike (or secret love affair) with Christmas. I just loved the video and the off the cuff remarks of Lorenzo who wasn’t taking himself too seriously and just wanted...

ALBUM REVIEW: THE RODS, VENGEANCE

When I first read their name “The Rods” I asked myself what would make them want to call themselves The Rods.  I thought maybe it was a band full of members who were actually named Rod, but no that wasn’t it.  The next thing that came to mind was, uhh, they all have rods?? ...

John Wetton: Raised in Captivity

I will admit to anyone that JOHN WETTON on a heavy metal site is a bit of a stretch, but when you have someone with the career this man does in influencing current artists we listen to, you pretty much have to pay him proper respect and honor his work. John Wetton is very...

Deep Purple: Phoenix Rising

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know the band Deep Purple. I have the distinct honour of reviewing the newest Deep Purple release, “Phoenix Rising.” The musical portion of the release is recorded from the Rises Over Japan concert from December of 1975. This concert recording is a combination of instrumentals,...

Yes: Fly From Here

The English band Yes has been called rock and roll pioneers, ground breaking, and a band who redefined the boundaries of rock. You have all heard them, although you may not have known it was them. “Owner of a Lonely Heart” was probably their biggest mainstream single in their 40+ years of performing and...

Lemmy is a Headcat

For you diehards out there that yell at me if I stray from the path of metal let me warn you in advance: the band were looking at today isn’t even remotely in the ball park of metal. On the other hand the Headcat’s have one very metal singer and bass player: Lemmy. So...

Aerial Ruin: Valleys of the Earth

For the first time I have a record I can use to put me in a state of relaxation and retrospective thought. Erik Moggride from Bay Metallers Epidemic has released a solo project that is filled with striped down guitars and singer/song writer vibes. Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t cover it, but as long...

Place of Skulls: As A Dog Returns

You think I would learn by now not to judge a band by its genre identification. This one struck my lack of intelligence especially hard because I made the same mistake last week. When I was sent a copy of Place of Skulls new album “As A Dog Returns” I made note of the...

Deep Purple: Come Taste the Band – Again!

The 35 Anniversary 2CD set of Deep Purple’s Come Taste the Band was sent to us a couple of weeks ago and I have been giving it some listens.  I don’t normally review reissues because the originals have normally been talked into the ground so what’s the point. Actually I don’t even usually mention...
