CD review STONE TEMPLE PILOTS "Stone Temple Pilots"

(8/10) Grunge was invented in Seattle and that's where iconic bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and many more came from. In parallel a rock outfit was formed in San Diego, California that started with a similar sound. Scott Weiland, Dean...

CD review AMPLIFIER "Trippin' with Dr. Faustus"

(8/10) Amplifier still belongs to one of the most underrated bands when it comes to alternative rock music. Even though having release five full-length record, accompanied by some EP’s and three live recording, Amplifier never reached a wider audience....

CD review NICOTINE NERVES "Nictotine Nerves

(7/10) Aarhus - Rock City? OK, this is a bit overdone, but there seems to be a vital rock scene in Denmarks second biggest city with Nictotine Nerves being a part of it. The Danish duo released their debut album a few weeks ago, featuring eight rock songs...

CD review SEETHER "Poison the Parish"

(8/10) "Poison the Parish" is Seether's seventh album and it's a strong one. Three years after having had "Isolate and Medicate" out there in the shops the new longplayer comes with twelve new songs that are all excellent rockers. "Stoke the Fire" is...

CD review NAVARONE "Oscillation"

(8/10) A colleague of mine mentioned Navarone quite a few times and I haven't done anything with this information - up till today. Things changed with getting the new album from Dutch-based rockers. Navarone is the brainchild of singer Merijn van Haren...

CD review THIRD ISLAND "Dusk" EP

CD review RICHARDS/CRANE "Richards/Crane"

(7/10) Hmmmm. What to write about this album? Not easy and even after quite some rounds of listening I'm not hundred percent sure when it comes to "Richards/Crane". Richards/Crane is the first album out of a cooperation of Godsmack's Lee Richards and...

CD review RAW IN SECT "Blue Haze"

(7/10) Raw In Sect is a still fairly new band from Athens, Greece. Even though their history goes back to 2011, the band hasn't released more than a demo and the debut album. Their first record was followed by quite some live shows with various acts....

CD review NOTHING "Tired of Tomorrow"

(8/10) Nothing's second strike is called "Tired of Tomorrow". The band from Philadelphia released their debut "Guilty of Everything" two years ago and I was already at that time impressed by the quality of their songs, something that raised the expectation...

CD review VALLEY OF THE SUN "Volume Rock"

CD review VALLEY OF THE SUN "Volume Rock"

(8/10) The title of this album couldn't be chosen much better. "Volume Rock" describes exactly what you get with this longplayer. Valley Of The Sun releases with "Volume Rock" an album that hits bulls eye. The guys from Cincinatti, Ohio push the pedal...

Live review TREMONTI / THE RAVEN AGE, 013, Tilburg, 19.12.2015

It feels like Mark Tremonti having a good relationship with The Netherlands. I can't remember him touring through Europe without having at least listed one show in the Holland. Also this time the tour stopped in the Benelux country and it has been second...

CD review SAINT ASONIA "Saint Asonia"

(8/10) I have the feeling that 'supergroups' spring up like mushrooms at the moment. Maybe this has to do with the start of the autumn season or whatever. Saint Asonia is the name of one of those 'supergroups'; this time in the field of alternative metal....
