Speaking of Firehouse, as I have mentioned this was probably my 7-8 time seeing them live. Clearly I’m not only a fan, but a committed fan. I keep seeing them live because they never fail to put on an awesome show. Allen, Bill, CJ, and Michael are all four exceptional musicians and give 100% to their fans no matter what is going on in their personal lives. That is one of the things that I respect the most from them
Tesla are a band that I have had a long musical affinity with since I first saw them support Def Leppard for two nights in my home country in Belfast in 1987
As the year draws to a close and the best-of lists start flooding the interwebs it seems logical to start looking toward 2015, which is already hinting at being a ridiculously good year for metal. Before you do though, make sure to dig a little deeper in the vast sea of good lesser-known releases from 2014, as there is bound to be a few gems hidden away. A DAWN IN THE AGE OF WAR is definitely one of those gems and is highly recommended. The entire album can be streamed for free on the label’s BandCamp page too, so what do have to lose?
