Indie music and various press stories…

Isn’t it strange to see magazines and ezines reviewing and rating high bands that belong to a major label’s roster and on the other hand ignore or low rating bands that release their own stuff independently or belong to small labels in general?   I have been witnessing such cases from more than 15 years that I’ve been dealing with the rock/...

Band reunions of all kinds…

For some reason, we witness many band reunions or comebacks to the music scene by eminent musicians from the old days over the last years. It’s strange to see bands that have been on hiatus for 10, 15, 20 or even more years to return to music. Some of them didn’t even have the chance to release a full-length album back in the day, but now they seem...

Music and Seasons in total balance…

Fall is here… and Summer is over! Well, that’s life and we cannot do otherwise. Even though some of us fancy Summer more than anything, we cannot change the way things go. The same thing goes for your beloved bands as well. Sometimes they excite us and other times they disappoint us. Then again, we must always support our beloved rock/metal music by...

Rockin’ Summer Days…

During the summer when most people are relaxing and some others are trying to do so in every way they can, there are always some minimal decisions that bother us when it comes to Summer Festivals and new releases that we should listen to and buy. How great it would be if things were like that for the most time, but let’s enjoy these moments as long as we can...

Summer Fests all the way…

It’s summertime again and apart from vacation time and swimming in the sea, it’s time for Summer Festivals as well. Every summer in Europe and not only there are lots of festivals that combine good music and lots of cold beer too. I used to fancy such festivals and I was longing for them every summer time or so. Not that they are not good anymore or...

Bands and trendy T-shirts

Do you remember the time when we used to wear the T-shirts of our beloved bands/artists not only to show the world how much we liked the specific bands/artists but also the rock/metal music? Rockers and metalheads were the ones that were proud to show everyone they friggin loved this kind of music and they promoted it in any way they could. That was a way to...

Are there limits to freedom of speech?

After some strange incidents that I came across lately, I started wondering if in the 21st century things that have to do with the freedom of speech, democracy and the international human rights are still valid or they have become a “figure of speech” so as to serve the needs and the requirements of the powerful ones.   The Internet and the...

The Music Biz Paradox...

It’s to wonder how in a “destroyed economy’ and in a time-period when the music sales (both digital and physical) have taken the downside, there are so many music labels, music managements, PR labels, bands/artists and of course releases around. In a way, it can be described as “irrational” since the economic model of “supply-...

The Grammy awards paranoia...

Well, the 59th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held on February 12th, 2017, in Staples Center in Los Angeles. According to the official “Grammy” definition: A Grammy Award, or Grammy, is an honor awarded by The Recording Academy to recognize outstanding achievement in the mainly English-language music industry.   OK got it now?! An “honor...

Great music is everywhere…

It’s true that 2017 made quite an entrance on the musical, social & political part. I won’t deal with anything else but music; although things are not going so well both on the social & political part and soon they are gonna affect music as well. Let’s hope that this won’t happen anytime soon and somehow we will manage to get through...
