A big shout out to Crow and the Crows Nest for being involved with rock in the Triad as long as I can remember. It made my night, not to be watching a cover band, and a bad rendition of Coyote Ugly! It’s was a solid performance by all the bands, with King’s X bringing the big guns to close the show. If the vibe at this show is any indication for the rest of their gigs, it is well worth it!Read more
Although he performs his music with a brilliantly controlled ferocity, at times his interaction with the crowd is just as compelling. When he addressed, as he called it “the big fucking elephant in the room“, meaning the empty balcony above, it drew a loud belt of laughterRead more

Wading through a sea of new bands there are few that have made as positive impact on me as A Sound of Thunder. My first exposure was when I saw them opening for my very first Raven show. I was already pretty amped for the show because as a lifelong Raven fan to finally be able to see them was a dream come true. Typically under these circumstances I don’t care who is opening, but ASoT made such an impact on me with their songs and delivery I was blown away.Read more
Thundermother play classic, hard hitting Rock n Roll with a fresh edge to it – I was instantly smitten. Their latest album Road Fever is due for release on 4th September 2015 and is sure to be exceptionally well received by all!Read more
Voodoo Hill, the outstanding collaboration of Italian guitar wizard Dario Mollo and legendary singer/bassist Glenn Hughes (and if I have to tell you who he is, well, hang your head in shame and go find out.) This is their third album in 15 years and like a fine wine they get better and better. Mollo is best known for his work with Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath vocalist) in a band called The Cage, while Hughes is fresh off his classic rock trip with Black Country Communion and California Breed.Read more
I had never heard of Kings of Spade until just before they took the stage opening for King’s X recently. All I knew up until that moment was that my friend Dennis told me I wasn’t going to believe her voice. As soon as Kasi Nunes started you could’ve knocked me over with a feather at this fantastically soulful and bluesy voice. Not only was her voice amazing, but her band was phenomenal too. I could not wait to get my hands on their album and let the tunes wash over my ears.Read more
Manowar is an iconic band mainly from those 6 albums in 6 years which still hasn’t been topped . What lessons have I learnt ? Well when I see an infection growing I deal with it promptly and wont let it fester.Read more
From Sci Fi to Spaghetti Western – ‘Psychic Warfare’ is real! I don’t know if it’s that I have been living under a rock for the last 25 years but I cannot for the life of me, tell you why Clutch never hit my radar. Luckily all is not lost as the band is about to release their 12th, self-produced album through Weathermaker Records ‘Psychic Warfare’.
‘Psychic Warfare’ was the first album in ages that, when it was over, I wanted more.
I had no idea that people were laboring to try to find us. I suppose we weren’t that easy to find since they had been looking for ten years, and it’s funny and coincidental that we had been toying with the idea of doing a new album since October of last year. I thought it was around New Years but my girl friend told me I’ve been messing with this for a whole year now.
But getting back to the “Kill Devil Hills” reissue; I thought it was great that a label would want to re-master and reissue the CD, it’s a great sounding disc and I’m very proud of it, it took a lot of work to make it the great sounding disc that it is. Jamie King did a great job re-mastering it and that’s why I chose him and his studio to record the new album.Read more
Mike Tramp, Danish born (Michael Trempenau), for those who don’t know has been around for a very long time. Trempenau started his musical career singing in Vesterbro Ungdomsgård, a youth group club in Copenhagen, and appears on their first album: Vi lever på Vesterbro (1974). In 1976, Trempenau, now known professionally as Tramp, joined the pop band ”Mabel” as the lead singer.Read more
