Often we all wonder whatever became of certain bands or where they disappeared to. Certainly, those bands who had the chops and drive to go somewhere. Such is the case with DEMENTIA.
With their album Back for the Kill, this melodic rock powerhouse was a huge band on the club circuit in North Carolina back in the day
I already felt a connection and kinship with their music, and I must say that those who held high praise for Assassin were not kidding. License To Kill is an excellent old school metal album and a welcome addition to my collection.
It’s like a never ending fountain of metal, almost a Fountain of Youth, because an album like No Comment from Denial transports me back to the good old days.
Conquistadors from U.S. shores set out to spread their gospel of heavy metal to the masses.
My writing has given me so much satisfaction in my life. Not necessarily the writing itself, but certainly most of the events leading up to it, and some aspects that have remained with me forever. I have seen some amazing bands, heard some incredible music, and made some wonderful friends in my 43 years of life; made memories I will never forget, and forged relationships that have meant more to me through my love of music than most people will realize
In 2011 the band Dogbane released their debut Residual Alcatraz. Though I didn’t review that album I found it to be quite an impressive first album. Hailing from Greensboro NC, the band took to the scene in 2010 with a sound and style that was pure classic metal while at the same time maintaining a sound not entirely retro.
