Saracen – Marylin Review

To describe the music here would be somewhat an intricate task, I want to compare the overall structure of the music somewhat resembling some of the softer material from Gary Hughes and TEN, but really the music falls into place on it’s own. The elements of the saxophone in certain songs adds a new layer of smoothness, and are provided by the very well known sax man Snake Davis

Shy – Shy Review

The guys from Shy have managed to return to fine form and instead of trying to wait for things to fall in to place and take over in this ever chancing musical landscape, they have shown exemplary showcase and raw power that really proves that this sorta of music never dies.

Sebastian Bach – Kicking & Screaming Review

“Dance On Your Grave” is another prime cut, as the drums slash its way with power and precision, Bach still sounds very strong in the vocal department, another one of the rockers out there that does more then a decent job at taking care of it’s voice despite constant abuse of the 80’s.

Red Remedy – Oblivion Review

RED REMEDY have an interesting sound that takes its cues from a mixture of modern radio rock and some late nineties/early 2000’s alternative rock and metal a la bands like INCUBUS, SEVENDUST and fellow hometown heroes GRINSPOON. But where the sound really flourishes is with the addition of a heavy layer of melodic rock sensibility and a real no-jokes underlying groove.//

Raygun Rebels – Bring Me Home Review

The band’s sound draws influence from the sunset strip sound of the eighties with some early day GUNS ‘N’ ROSES and some MOTLEY CRUE and even a slight, slight hint of POISON, but where things get interesting is the inclusion of some obvious influence from some seventies rockers like AEROSMITH and NEW YORK DOLLS…

Badmouth – Heavy Metal Parking Lot Review

This new album improves on every element from the debut tenfold and if I didn’t know better I would swear it’s another group entirely. The base sound is still a pretty basic hard rock groove, but this time around the songs are catchy…

Red Hot Chili Peppers – I’m With You Review

The album is almost progressive in its nature, keeping the blend of funk and hard rock but also adding some odd time signatures, a bossa-nova segment and also a couple of occasions where you could be tempted to call the sound disco and even a near hip-hip piece too…
