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...

Circle to release new studio album “Terminal” on June 23rd 2017

Circle is the very definition of genre-defying; a rare feat for any band, but effortlessly achieved by this prolific Finnish collective.

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...
