Suicide Bombers - Suicide Idols

Having chosen probably the silliest most disgraceful name in recent history and having their singer, Chris Damien Doll “The Sleaze Fuhrer” (!?) present himself with a Nazi commander’s hat, is a move done in very bad taste, even if it’s done in jest. Further to that, when compared to their Swedish counterparts that seem to be the majority of...

Biters - The Future Ain’t What It Used to Be

Biters is a rock band that has been going on for quite a while (with numerous EPs since 2010), but only debuted a proper full-length a couple of years ago on Earache. They have a decent style inspired from earlier bands (ie The Cheap Tricks, NY Dolls and Alice Coopers of this world), but brought up to today. The process of making their stuff contemporary strips...

Warrant - Louder Harder Faster

Warrant were both extremely lucky and unlucky at the same time, when they made it with a guy like Jani Lane as he’s credited with having written some of their biggest hits during their heyday… they did drift apart after a string of albums that failed to match their early success and while grunge was really laying most of the 80s and 90s hard rock bands...

Michael Monroe to release “The Best” compilation on June 9th 2017

In the leather-bound history of heartfelt rock ‘n’ roll, not only will Michael Monroe have at least one chapter all to himself, but his name will be colourfully threaded throughout, such has been his impact, his appeal and his ongoing never-surrender story; a powerful, inspirational tale told in detail on “The Best” – the first...

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...
