Stryper - God Damn Evil

Honestly now, who among us hasn’t poked a little fun at Stryper’s brand of Christian themed borderline heavy metal at one point or another in our lives? Seeing as I’m accountable for more than my fair share of jibes at their expense, I’m thrilled to announce the holy rolling L.A. rockers from days of yore have risen to the challenge and...

Jizzy Pearl of Love/Hate - All You Need is Soul

Jizzy Pearl’s new album encapsulates the classic vintage vibe of 80s/90s Glam Metal and Hard Rock. The album art gives you a clue to the vibrant, energetic and electric vibes and psychedelic harmonies that it contains. Jizzy dragged the 80s/90s into the modern day with high energy riffs and vocals, so still a great listening for anyone not familiar with the...

Riot V - Armor of Light

It’s friggin impossible to dislike a band like Riot. Stalwarts and Underdogs, they never managed to quite become the huge band they deserved to be and through their many reincarnations – the solid factor was that none of the sixteen albums, so far, has been a bad one. Maybe one or two are the weaker ones, but I doubt any band has managed this many...

Auri - Auri

Auri is basically a trio, which features Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela along with Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donockley from Nightwish. It’s basically, a distraction from the “dayjob” and for the most part some nice “choral” ideas that could just be wasted – since most of them seem hardly compatible with what Nightwish has turned...

Kaine - A Crisis of Faith

For the second time this year I’ve run across a highly eclectic and ephemeral traditional/power metal outfit from England, which manages to sound compellingly radio-friendly while fervently driving its point home in a most unorthodox manner, as well as percolating with numerous subtle details one readily glimpses with each subsequent listen. In fact, such...

The Courettes - We are The Courettes

The Courettes is a Brazilian-Danish duo, which consists of Flavia Couri on vocals & guitar and Martin Couri on drums & vocals. The duo, Flavia and Martin, is both married in life and in music, if one can say so. The group started almost 4 years ago, and in 2015 they released their debut album “Here are The Courettes”. Now, three years later,...

Dukes Of The Orient - Dukes of the Orient

It’s very encouraging to see two of the top musicians of our time working together to release an album with new music. Then again, this album has been 10 years in the making (!), so it was about time, more or less, to hear what John Payne (Asia, GPS) on vocals, guitars & bass and Erik Norlander (Last In Line, Lana Lane) on keys have recorded all these...

High Reeper - High Reeper

Good ‘ol Stoned Meadow of Doom at hullabalootube... while he often caters to outright stoner rock ventures, at times comes up with real fiery glumdingers, namely wickedly infectious, goomba-stomping proto doom metal such as Philadelphia’s High Reeper, a five-man harbinger of Sabbath-y histrionics which last month launched its titular full-length debut...

Black Label Society - Grimmest Hits

ver since Zakk Wylde grew a beard and opened his mouth-breathing orifice to talk, mostly shit has started spewing out. This fake biker wanna be, drunk, guitar god, narcissistically attempts to style himself after his mentor – ie Ozzy, but really fails to replicate him capably enough, thus sounding like a cheap second rate copycat. Ten albums in Black Label...

Lucifer’s Hammer - Time is Death

Borrowing its rather ambiguous and suggestive moniker from the classic Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle sci-fi novel is Santiago, Chile’s Lucifer’s Hammer, a most faithful and un-presumptuous traditional heavy metal trio (elevated from a duo), which last month released a shockingly tight, compact and melodic sophomore, “Time is Death”,...
