Wig Wam – Wall Street Review

Well, once again WALL STREET is a different beast to anything the band has done previously and while some elements of the album work well, overall it just feels as though the band have come too far away from what made them great and have possibly over-reached this time around…

Overkill – The Electric Age Review

Overkill is one of the greatest thrash bands of all-time. Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth is the best thrash frontman. Period. There is no one better than him.

Steel Assassin – WWII Metal of Honor Review

Then tossing a curve ball into the mix they do an awesome cover of the Rush song “Red Sector A.” Surprisingly, it works well as a metal song, and Falzone’s voice is so mesmerizing you simply don’t miss the distinctive sound of Geddy’s voice. Rush is a band not many bands could pull off, but Steel Assassin do it without missing a beat. WWII: Metal Of Honor is an outstanding release I highly recommend to metal fans.
