CD review SINNER "Tequila Suicide"

(8/10) I'm not sure if there are busier musicians in German rock/metal than Mat Sinner. Primal Fear, Voodoo Circle, ... are outfits that include the Swabian bass player on the four string guitar and sometimes also as being producer too. Next to all these...

CD review BLACK STAR RIDERS "Heavy Fire"

CD review MIDGE URE "Breathe Again: Live and Extended"

(8/10) To mention each of the important musical mielstones of Midge Ure would be a very long list of bands and projects the iconic musicians was involved in. I don't think that such an outstanding career was to foresee when Ure started in 1976 with Silk,...
