The heavy artillery diesel of the crashing guitar riff in “Indestructible” is a warming track which sparks up the bottom half of the record. The last track “Born To Rock & Roll’ ends this come back journey in high gear as Skin leaves a good taste in my mouth with a perfect return to form from these cagy veterans of the UK rock scene.
Barons Ball is an interesting melodic rock outfit from Germany, the crew has borrowed influences from more modern rock bands like Nickelback, and some classic ones like Bon Jovi or Guns N’ Roses. I’m always fascinated to hear more mainstream music from other parts of the world, as much as mainstream rock gets constant airplay on the radio and tv back here in the states, in places like Germany however, other genres and different types of music dominate the airwaves.
A Sound of Thunder is back and better than ever! I was lucky to catch this band opening for Raven a few years back and was blown away by their performance as well as listening to their subsequent albums. When I heard they had a new album coming out I was eager to hear it and I was not disappointed at all. The Lesser Key of Solomon is such an incredible follow up to their last album,Time’s Arrow, which was an astonishing release.
