Dissona – Dissona Review

So how glad am I that I spent some time with this album? Very fuggen glad! Seriously though, DISSONA is one of the best unsigned bands I have heard in a long time and this album is a truly fantastic example of a band that is ready for the big time…

Pretty Maids – It Comes Alive Review

ow Pretty Maids aren’t at the level of success of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, or Poison completely baffles me. Barring the band’s name itself (the general consensus when I tell my friends about them is that the band’s name is terrible,) you will find no group that has more consistently released incredible music from their first album to their most recent.

Nightqueen – For Queen and Metal Review

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a sucker for women in metal/hard rock. I have been since the days of Lita Ford, Vixen, and Doro Pesch in Warlock as well as solo. Perhaps it’s a carnal thing but truthfully it’s more to do with the fact that having a female in this genre automatically sets a band apart from most others.

Dark New Day – New Tradition Review

Dark New Day’s New Tradition is the much anticipated follow up to their 2005 debut Twelve Year Silence.

Thankfully I have such a long history with Frontiers who instead of sticking to the contract and standing their ground about ONLY having 11 songs on the final album, they gave me the respect of releasing the ‘directors cut’ with all 14 songs I felt were the true vision of it.

Jeff Scott Soto – Damage Control Review

One patented staple you can always expect from Soto is the high soaring choruses he usually taps down perfectly, this new one has plenty of hooks and melodies for every fan to rejoice. Starting things off right is the jolted chorus in the opening tune “Give a Little More”. This one opens the path to another heavy reliance on JSS’s vocals in the title track, this one brings similarities from the W.E.T project with some crunchy harder guitars leading the way

Furyon – Gravitas Review

Is hard to initially categorized the band as I said earlier there are commercial strides, elements of progressive metal, post modern and grunge all rolled into one conglomerate melting pot of induced rhythms and groove. The band lays down an interlaced path of hooks and melodies that are hidden in deep in the submersion of the sound
