Thunder - Rip It Up

Thunder is a band that should be treasured… despite their ups and downs and their non-so permanent splits – that ended up being more like 2 years away from each other, the Brits continue to be one of the better bands in classic rock to have come out of the “Isles” in recent history. Maintaining the same lineup for almost two decades, even...

Black Star Riders - Heavy Fire

Third album for the Black Star Riders and I guess the decision to not go out under Thin Lizzy, proves to be a correct one. While they’re deeply inspired by the Irish giants and even featuring Scott Gorham on guitars. Managing to maintain their lineup steady, the band has developed a chemistry that’s not to dissimilar to that of Lizzy, but without being...

Pride Of Lions - Fearless

Gotthard - Silver

“Silver” is the 3rd album with Nic Maeder following original singer’s Steve Lee’s sad and tragic freak accident that cost him his life and it finds Gotthard still largely unable to quite display the knack for coming up with hits that much of their Lee led era had after a certain point. While in Maeder they’ve found a great singer and...
