Sweet/Lynch – Only To Rise Review

Ending on a pulsating note with title track Only to Rise, this song bears all the hallmarks of a relentless jam. Lynchs’ no frills riff work and Tichys’ animalistic skin battering are monstrous. It would be a crying shame if this project was a one off. Sweet and Lynch clearly have a smokin’ hot compatibility. Their energy and enthusiasm are all over this wonderful album.


Interview with George Lynch (Guitars) (Dokken, Lynch Mob, Sweet & Lynch)

And I think that that is kind of the question for at this point is like, “What works best, and is there one way, or multiple ways that could work best, depending on the conditions and the components of this group?” So in Dokken’s case, which is one of the few experiences I’ve had as a model, there was the natural hierarchy, just sort of the way that things work actually.
And there was a more closed hierarchy, which people tend to skew the natural hierarchy to favour themselves against the will of nature so to speak here [chuckles]. So I wonder about that. I think if you take that example as a lesson and you extrapolate that example to a larger world, to other arenas, positions, man versus nature, man versus man, and all this sort of stuff; there’s something you can learn about it and hopefully find a better way to do things. So in my case, I’ve had.. I’d been thinking about this one for a long time. And I’ve always been of the opinion that level playing field is the fairest thing. We have to throw it all into a petri-dish and then allow people to grow according to their own potential and will, right? Without taking anything from anyone else.

Stryper – Live At the Whisky Review

I have told people for a long time now, if you are avoiding Stryper strictly based on the religious message they put out, you are doing yourself a major disservice. I can understand not liking a band based on musical taste, but to totally avoid them because they are Christian and promote their religion I don’t agree with

Stryper – No More Hell to Pay Review

This offering is a big step forward from the last original release “Murder By Pride” in 2009. “No More Hell To Pay” is rich with classic metal riffs and hooks that hark back to Priest, Sabbath, and The Scorpions…

Stryper – The Covering

Yeah I know what you’re thinking, but wait why would a christian band be covering this song? Because the song kicks ass and so does Stryper. Enough for ya? Good I give them a horns up or down whichever you prefer on the classic UFO cut “Lights Out” featuring a thundering rhythm and bass section
