Stryper – Even The Devil Believes Review

Experimental. Technical. Heavy. Perfect. Those are 4 adjectives that I’d use to describe this album. It was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a musical followup to God Damn Evil. Instead, I got a lesson in what amazing guitar playing and singing sounds like. All 4 members stepped up their game. They are now on a higher level than they’ve ever been, and I’m blown away. I’d compare my reaction to Even the Devil Believes to my reaction to Judas Priest the first time I heard Painkiller. Stunned, Shocked, maybe even a little intimidated but in a good way. 5 of 5 stars from me. Get this album. Now!

Walter Trout On New CD, Ordinary Madness – You Have To Play With The Hand You Have Been Dealt!

There is something about the way we play together that I never had as a band before. You can hear it on this record. These guys are tight, and I gave them a lot of freedom. I told them, I love the way you play, here is how the song goes. Let play it until we find an approach. It was rather ambitious as I haven’t thought about that word, but you’re correct.

WarKings – Revenge Review

When I first heard Reborn, I thought it was a fun album, but that WarKings had the potential to step up their game a bit further, and create a more memorable album. With Revenge, that’s exactly what’s happened, as while it’s stylistically a very similar album to the band’s debut, the performances and songwriting seem to be just a cut better, with an extra layer of energy and intensity. Fans of the band’s debut should love this, and anyone looking for a fun heavy/power metal album with a mix of intense riffs, great melodies, awesome vocals, and catchy choruses, would be highly recommended to give this a listen.

Jinxx of Black Veil Brides on Re-Imaged CD, Re-Stitch These Wounds – We Envisioned Something Bigger With Those Songs, Now We Have It!

About a year ago, when we regrouped to make a game plan moving forward, Andy approached us with the idea of Lonny joining us. Andy wanted to run it by us first as he didn’t want us to think he was pushing the guy from his solo project.
