Confess - Haunters

Confess is a pretty fun band, on their sophomore album, that has this modernized Skid Row meets Ratt edgy “Street Metal” sound, that parts seedy, sleazy hard rock, hair and big balls having to fit in tight spandex.   Think “early” or singles only Crashdiet and any other decent Scandi band of their ilk, but this band doesn’t feel...

Vain - Rolling with the Punches

Vain is quite a unique band, for the lamenting, minor and passionate delivery of Davy that can rock full on as well to the unique tone of misters Scott and West on the guitars making it groove and sing as necessary.   “Rolling with the Punches” might have 2017 copyright notices, but screw me, if this couldn’t have been an album that the...

FerreTT - In Through the Out Door

WTF! I was intrigued to see the pictures that came with this promo and immediately I thought, Italians and comedy band… boy was I wrong on probably both accounts? They come from NY – but they could be Italian-Americans still and they might be over the top, but not exactly “comedic” in nature, although I wouldn’t just take them too...

Steel Panther - Lower the Bar

Despite loving them Panthers of Steel and owning literally everything by them, as a true Fanther should, I can’t really pretend I totally love everything they do, just because “it’s them”. See being a Fanther is different than being your regular fanboy.   I did find their debut – to be an instaclassic (but then again it was...
