CD review BLACK STONE CHERRY "Family Tree"

(8/10) It was back in 2001 when a new rock band entered the scene, hailing from Edmonton, Kentucky. The name of this outfit – Black Stone Cherry. The roots of the band go back even longer. It was in high school when singer/guitarist Chris Robertson and...

CD review RON KEEL "Metal Cowboy"

CD review BLACKFOOT "Southern Native"

(8/10) My first Blackfoot album was "Marauder" and the opener of the this great longplayer, "Good Morning", is still one of the best tracks I have heard from Rickey Medlocke and his gang. The Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist started Blackfoot already back in...

CD review BLACK STONE CHERRY "Kentucky"

CD review BLESSED HELLRIDE "Bastards & Outlaws"

(7/10) The first thing that comes to your mind if you hear 'Blessed Hellride' is the Black Label Society album "The Blessed Hellride" from 2003. I don't know if this record was the initial spark for Blessed Hellride to start as a band, but name and sound...
