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...

Cyanide 4 - Nekyia

Cyanide 4 is a Greek power/neo glam metal quartet, a poor man’s Crashdiet, with inferior songwriting with a couple of releases up their sleeves, a debut comprising of a variety of private EPs that sounded quite disjointed but had its moments and a later EP that I didn’t even know it ever came out. Not certain if the band was on hiatus either, since I...

Sandness - Higher & Higher

Sandness is an Italian trio that has been together for some eight years now. This is their second album after several demos and a debut a couple of years ago that was followed by some mini tours and support slots.   They are an average hard/glam band, with somewhat weak vocals, but tight enough performances and average songs. I had to look at them twice to...

BlackRain - Released

I remember having and then selling one of BlackRain’s previous four albums in the past, which I got cheap and because I though the cover was interesting… I think it was “License to Thrill”…? but then selling it, because it didn’t really do much for me. The French “hardcore” not-so-stars have now been around for a...

The Senton Bombs is a UK band that has been going on for almost a decade. “Mass Vendetta” is the band’s fourth studio release, after “Chapter Zero”, which was released in 2013.   The Senton Bombs play an amalgam of hard rock, glam rock, sleaze-punk, punk-rock with pop-rock elements. The play quite well and the singer, Joey Class...

The Last Vegas - Eat Me

I like it how some “traditional” labels are discovering there might be life and hopefully sales, beyond the “usual” genres they specialize in and as such take forays into sub-genres that are usually foreign to them. AFM Records are signing The Last Vegas, a bizarre rock n roll/hard glam band from Chicago of all places that sound influenced...

Twisted Sister - We are Twisted Fucking Sister

I must admit that this review is one that gave me the hardest time. I must have gone over it two or three times at one point completely scrapping it altogether. Why? I’m not sure, but when you really like a band, “documentaries” will either demystify them in your eyes, or like in this case might give you another perspective… you see...
