Tank – War Machine

Regardless of the comparisons Doogie is a great vocalists and it really makes the track stand out on it’s own and the record revives the super speedy, nifty tightly NWOBHM riffs of old all with the help of the dual guitars of Tucker and Evans.

Dear Diary – Dear Diary

The slushy romp of “Tanqueray Tina” adds a sultry taste to the feisty straight edge of the song itself. Yeah what the hell is a Tanqueray anyways? Well is a British Gin if you must know. A lapse effect starts the intricate schism of “Dream In Color” as the building bass adds an ethereal effect to make a nice standout track a memorable one.

Dakrya – Crime Scene

This has to be one of those releases that has to grow on you before you accept it as something new that sounds good, it feels like a weird mix of an eclectic idea thrown in together with other abstract leads to create what we have here in “Crime Scene”.

Fallen Angel – Crawling Out Of Hell

I have been listening to an absolutely amazing album that really came out of nowhere and knocked me off my feet. That album is called CRAWLING OUT OF HELL and is the debut album from American traditional metal group FALLEN ANGEL. The album is actually part of a planned trilogy that tells a flowing story and this is one of the best uses of a concept album I have heard in a long time…

Jimmy Barnes – Rage And Ruin

Since the beginning of his solo career, BARNES has gone from Aussie pub rocker, to AOR hero, to crooner, to soul man and many other things in between. While his rock and AOR days are where his best performances came from, each different era still managed to herald at least one or two great songs…

Lonely Kamel – Blues For The Dead

BLUES FOR THE DEAD is certainly an interesting album, and one that I quite enjoyed. Who it will directly appeal to however is something I’m still not too sure of. Musically LONELY KAMEL certainly have their own distinct sound, which is made up by a combination of classic blues rock/psychedelica and the more modern style of stoner rock/desert rock…

Raimund Burke – Christmas Classics

There is a bit of simple fact to this album really, if you are a fan of instrumental hard rock music or guitar virtuoso music, there is no better way to spend Christmas than with this new album from RAIMUND BURKE in the background. Each song is treated with due respect but also offers plenty in the fretboard fireworks department…

Superhorrorfuck – Livingdeadstars

Getting to the music there is more averageness but some good stuff hidden amongst the wreckage. The band’s sleazy rock sound is also met with some punk rock style vocals and a slight horror punk mentality that when heard is the highlight of the album. YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HEAD ON and HOLY ZOMBIE show some merit and it’s a shame that the rest of the album couldn’t reach the same heights…

Synthetic Breed – Perpetual Motion Machine

The new album pretty much starts off where the previous one finished, so if you liked the first album you’re in luck. The only notable difference I could find is that the actual musicianship is further improved this time around and these guys are slowly but surely starting to sound like virtuosos of their respective instruments…
