CD review MAGNUM "Lost on the Road to Eternity"

(9/10) Introducing Magnum feels like carrying sand to the beach. I can't imagine that there are fans of rock and metal that never heard at least the name of the British hardrock legend. Guitar wizard Tony Clarkin and singer Bob Catley began in 1972 and...

CD review MAGNUM "The Valley of Tears - The Ballads"

(*/10) Magnum without any ballads is something I can't imagine. Even though the band of hardrock dinosaurs Tony Clarkin and Bob Catley wrote excellent hardrock songs, it has been always the ballads that gave each Magnum longplayer a certain width and...

Live review MAGNUM, De Boerderij, Zoetermeer, 10.05.2016

It's not that often that UK hardrockers Magnum are visiting the Randstad area in Holland. Normally the guys stop more often in the (South-) Eastern parts of The Netherlands, but this time, being on their way from Germany to the UK, Bob Catley, Tony Clarkin...

CD review VEGA "Who We Are"

Veröffentlicht am 8. Mai 2016 von Markus W. in Vega, News, CD Review, Magnum, Hardrock, Rock, Melodic Rock, AOR

CD review VEGA "Who We Are"

(7/10) VEGA's new album "Who We Are" is already number four in the band's history and the guys focus again on melodic rock. Their sound is rooted in the 80's when bands like Def Leppard celebrated their biggest success. Vega takes this inspiration, writes...

CD review MAGNUM "Sacred Blood "Divine" Lies"

(8/10) To introduce Magnum isn't necessary. After more than 4 decades in hardrock music the guys from England are a well know act all over the world. I still can remember when I heard "On a Storytellers Night" somewhere back in the mid eighties. It was...

CD review MAGNUM "Escape from the shadow garden - live 2014"

(8/10) If I counted right "Escape from the shadow garden - live 2014" is Magnum's ninth live album - and it's another good one the add to their discography. The first song I heard from the British melodic hardrock band was "Les Morts dasant" from the...

CD review MAGNUM "Escape from the shadow garden"

(9/10) It was in 1985 when I heard the first time about Magnum. Till then it was a private investigator from Hawaii wearing funny colourful shirts. But from that moment on the name became for me a synonym for excellent hardrock music. Almost 30 years...
