CD review MIKE TRAMP "Maybe Tomorrow"

(8/10) Next to the fact that Danish singer Mike Tramp released quite some records featuring excellent songs it is his willpower to continue with rock music, even though times got tougher after having had a huge success with White Lion and partly Freak...

Live report DOOL, Paradiso, Amsterdam, 09.03.2017

One of the shooting stars in 2017 are Dutch newcomers Dool. Now, ‘newcomer’ might not even be the right word, since all involved musicians have a more than solid background in rock and metal. However, the band itself is fairly new with a debut called...

CD review KXM "Scatterbrain"

(9/10) I try to limit the use of the word(s) ’super group’ as much as possible, but in this case it just fits to what KXM is about. This trio from the US is definitely a super group. George Lynch (Lynch Mob, Dokken), dUg Pinnick (Kings X) and KoRn drummer...

CD review PLACE VENDOME "Close to the Sun"

(8/10) Some news from Place Vendome? Actually not. OK, there’s a new longplayer that hit the stores. The band/project that was founded in 2004 became a constant factor in melodic rock. What began with the successful debut found its continuation with two...

Live report HELMET/ LOCAL H, Patronaat, Haarlem, 06.03.2017

CD review ASIA "Symfonia - Live in Bulgaria"

CD review ASIA "Symfonia - Live in Bulgaria"

(*/10) What to say about another Asia live album? If I counted right, Asia has published more live records than studio albums and here comes another one which it's maybe more than just a live recording. It is an Asia release that is the first on after...

CD review BLACK MIRRORS "Funky Queen"

(8/10) This EP belongs to the positive surprises these days. The quartet from Bruxelles blends various styles of rock music, resulting in four songs that are dynamic and vital. Classic rock, a bit of grunge and some hardrock melt, leading a powerful EP...

CD review IMMOLATION "Atonement"

(8/10) Time flies, something that came to my mind when I received the new Immolation longplayer. It was 28 years ago when the guys from New York embarked on their death metal adventure, an endeavor that’s till ongoing to the present. As we speak, a new...

CD review SATAN TAKES A HOLIDAY "Aliens"

(7/10) Like many times before it’s interesting stuff from Sweden that hits the CD players. This time it’s a band that answers to the name of Satan Takes A Holiday. The group is around since 10 years, having their roots back in 2006, when Fred Burman,...

CD review PERSEFONE "Aathma"

(8/10) Andorra isn't a country that comes first to your mind while thinking about heavy metal. However, there are bands that try to bring this small European country also on the map of metalheads. One of these bands is Persefone, a group that started...
