Plenty - It Could Be Home

Plenty was formed back in 1986. The founding members were Tim Bowness (No-Man, solo, etc.), Brian Hulse and David K Jones. Three cassette releases appeared between 1987 and 1988, and it was in 1990 when the band took a big hiatus till 2017, when Tim, Brian and David started re-recording the band’s 80s catalogue of 16 tracks, plus a new one, so as to complete...

Eldritch - Cracksleep

Almost three decades and eleven albums in their career, Italian progsters Eldritch have soldiered on through the years, with Eugene Simone and Terence Holler having been there since the beginning and the rest of the current members accumulated in the past decade.   Now they seem pretty faithful to their technical yet emotive style, that recalls part Angra,...

Toledo Steel - No Quarter

Fans of compact and “nitrogenous” mid-tempo traditional heavy metal which touches heavily on classic mythology/science-fiction/all-around metal mayhem narrative themes in a similarly accessible and enthralling manner as Ambush, Bullet, Sacred Leather or Substratum owe it to themselves to zero in on Toledo Steel’s long overdue yet powerfully...

Doro - Forever Warriors, Forever United

Doro, I mean, what’s not to love, in what the first lady of metal has been doing… for such a long time, she’s been a strong female lead, a pinup of posters in young metalheads rooms in the 80s and she wasn’t only eyecandy but also had the spunk to genuinely be a female rocker back in a time when women in metal were probably counted in the...

Leather - II

Obviously Leather Leone made a name for herself as the leather lunged vocalist of a good number of Chastain albums in the 80s. Now she also did release a solo album “Shock Waves” in 1989, just between “Voice of the Cult” and “For Those Who Dare”, an album written by Chastain and her, but bizarrely enough performed by Michael...

Ross The Boss - By Blood Sworn

Ross “The Boss” Friedman is joined by Marc Lopes on vocals and keyboard, with Lance Barnewold smashing the drums and Mike LePond setting the bass ablaze. Luckily they all lived close by so the album was created organically. Starting with Ross and Mike playing around with some tunes and riffs, then forming the songs around them. Ross drives the direction...

Laura Meade - Remedium

The vocalist of Izz, Laura Meade, has finally released her debut solo album. Having some prog elements here and there, the album is more laid back, atmospheric and ambient on the whole. It still maintains various pop melodies along with an acoustic character and it’s generally straightforward, especially when it is compared to the Izz’s releases....

Almost a decade and five albums in, Norweigian vocalist, Isabell Øversveen, which from the go has been given Frontiers Records undivided attention, but doesn’t seem to have managed a lot still, despite all the prestigious guest and help she’s been given.   On her fifth album Øversveen continues her American rock aspiration, but...

Dobbeltgjenger - Limbohead

The Dead Daisies - Burn It Down

The Dead Daisies are one of those bands you can’t help but enjoy.

In the five years they’ve been together they have made three studio albums, a couple of EPs, and even have a live album under...
