CD review MASTODON "Emperor of Sand"

(9/10) My Mastodon trip started with their sophomore album „Leviathan“. This disc made more than an impression and still belongs to my all-time-faves. This was 13 years ago and in the meantime the Atlanta-based band released many more records with an...

CD review ONE OK ROCK "Ambitions"

(6/10) It's always good to have ambitions in life. These bring us further, supporting our development and individual growth. I guess the guys of One OK Rock have ambitions too, individually and as a band. I don't know what these ambitions are, but listening...

LP review "IRON MAGAZINE "Queen of Hell" EP

LP review "IRON MAGAZINE "Queen of Hell" EP

(8/10) Iron Magazine isn’t a new rock magazine. It’s the name of a band/project that describes themselves as ‘boundary-crushing-finno-canuck hard-prog team-up’. It might sound a bit crazy, but it is what it is and it’s the right description of what you...

CD review BLACK MAP "In Droves"

(8/10) The Bay Area stands for more than just being the cradle of thrash metal. Also alternative rock/metal has a home in San Fransisco, California and one of the protagonists is Black Map. The trio has released first EP and the debut some years ago and...

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 DANKO JONES "Wild Cat"

(8/10) Toronto, ON is a great city. The Blue Jays, the Waterfront area with the lake and the CN Tower, all exciting things to watch and experience. It’s a vital city with a positive vibe that makes you feel home very easily. It’s not a surprise that the...

CD review PYOGENESIS "A Kingdom to Disappear"

CD review PYOGENESIS "A Kingdom to Disappear"

(8/10) Swabian powerhouse Pyogenesis belongs to the group of bands that don’t care about what’s hot and what’s not. Flo V. Schwarz and his gang started in the 90’s, a decade in which real metal bands had a hard time. Pyogenesis began as a death metal...

CD review NICK OLIVERI "N.O. Hits at All - Volume one"

(7/10) Most of you know Nick Oliveri from his Kyuss-days and his contribution to Queens Of The Stone Age. However, the musician was involved in many other projects too and had various guest-appearances as well. Heavy Psych took this as an opportunity...

CD review JOHN GARCIA „The Coyote Who Spoke in Tongues"

(7/10) If there's one voice that stands for stoner rock like no-one else than it's ex-Kyuss singer John Garcia. The guy from Arizona has his own phrasing and a timbre that makes him to an outstanding vocalist. Regardless if it was with the mentioned Kyuss...

CD review SOEN "Lykaia"

(9/10) The moment I listened to Soen’s third longplayer for the first time was with earphones on a flight. I didn’t do this by purpose but in fact it turned out to be a great momentum. This has less to do with being on a flight. It was more the intensity...
