Liverpool’s 5 piece Hard Rocking outfit Revival Black makes a splashing return with their sophomore release “Under The Light” via the label TMR Rock Records. Categorized as New Wave of Classic Rock is a good way to describe the young band. Although enough with labels, the guys seem to imprint their refined sound I reckon to say. The promising Brits bring soul and firepower with their new album, and with an overall crisp production to boot, they are ready to make waves.
Is there a band with as long and rich a history, still releasing music that still manages to sell well, that can do world tours around the world in large venues and sell them out, that has such a divided fanbase?
‘Rock Believer’ is the best Scorpions album in years. The German metal pioneers go back to their roots when it comes to the sound of the album and at the same time unveil a freshness and dynamic that positively surprises. Everybody that lost their passion for Scorpions music after the release of ‘Love at First Sting’ should give this album a chance. It is worth it.
Throughout his 40+ year career, Steve Vai has transformed the world of instrumental guitar, something that would seem to be nearly impossible, into a very successful career. From his early beginnings with Frank Zappa’s to his work with the ever-flamboyant David Lee Roth, then back to his exploratory solo work, Steve has continually challenged traditional guitar playing and composition into a mind-altering experience. He has revolutionized guitar playing and has influenced legions of fans and guitarists along the way, something he is very humbled by.

Simply a powerhouse of Purple perfection!
The prize for the best title has to go to ‘Monkeys with Money & Guns’, a tongue in cheek rascal of a tune and hip in its funky blues-ness. And if you want a slice of ‘Hey Big Spender’, high kicking jollity, look no further than ‘Deep Water’ brought together with a superb chorus and hard-hitting brass section.
The video screens and additional narrative help tell the story of the evolution of rock music through the decades. Interspersed in all of that we have of course the performances from the exemplary list of musicians that help define three decades of classic rock.
