CD review NICK OLIVERI "N.O. Hits at All - Volume 4" EP

(5/10) OK, I think we can keep this one pretty short since it is part four of Nick Oliveri’s release series of cover songs. Like with the earlier records also this one comes with tracks that are a matter of heart for Oliveri. So far so good and actually...

CD review THE QUILL "Born From Fire"

(8/10) Swedish rock and metal has, to a big part, a homebase in either Gothenburg or Stockholm. The Quill doesn’t call any of these cities their home. The guys founded the band in Mönsterås which is smaller town at the Swedish East coast. The guys aren’t...
