Galactic Cowboys - Long Way Back to the Moon

You know the funny thing with a band such as the Galactic Cowboys is that they came out at the tail end of the 80s – actually debuting in 1991, with their eponymous offering on Geffen, but that was also the year that Nirvana sort of swept everything else – rock – aside.

Threshold live in Athens 2017

Threshold was the only “big” progressive metal band I never had the chance to see live… until now! Both expectations and wondering were embedded in my head for two main reasons.

Nocturnal Rites - Phoenix

Obviously, I know who Nocturnal Rites are, but I did presume them to have gone MIA, since it was ten or so years, since their last album. I must say that I first saw the album on vinyl and I was struck by it’s cool cover artwork… and after that I thought to fire up a google search in case they had any videos out. True that “Before We Waste Away...
