Ashtones – Mainline Rockets

ASHTONES play a very simplistic iteration of dirty punk rock, that makes no compromise and will rock your bones all the way through to the end of the album, taking influence from the punk bands to come before them, I can hear bits of SEX PISTOLS and THE RAMONES mixed with a bit of the latter day punk rock sounds of bands like RANCID and BAD RELIGION.

Not my favorite genre when it comes to metal, as there has always been just a few bands that distinguish themselves from the crows, none the less Darkseed has developed a nice following through the years.

FM – Metropolis

One of the staples of the band has always been the amazing voice of Steve Overland, a legend in the Melodic Rock genre and one of those vocalist who has a distinct vocal atonement every time he sings. Such albums like “Tough It Out” the bands most successful album to date are classics of the genre.

Robert Plant talks about upcoming album with Band of Joy

No one ZEPPELIN album followed the next in style. I don’t want to get bored with my own gift.

When we were in Serbia or North Africa or West Africa or Mexico, I just kept absorbing all kinds of music.

The Storys – Luck

The style of music the band play is easiest described as Westcoast AOR, but there are many more elements that make up the total including some soft rock a-la bands like THE EAGLES, RICHARD MARX and even some BEATLES similarities in small smatterings.
