Physical & Digital releases…

The digital music (r)evolution has urged the young generation to be part of the music business and even make it grow bigger in a very different way than the “old-traditional” one.   Now that every album is released both digitally and physically, both parties, the old and the younger ones can be totally satisfied in their own way. To each their...

To DIY or not to DIY…

I’ve noticed that many newcomers do not mind not signing to a music label (of course things are different when it comes to major labels, in most cases), and they have found the way to do things on their own, the famous “DIY”, and they are happy with the results.   You see these days it’s the PR labels that are doing the entire job....

Summer, Music & Festivals…

Summer is finally here – officially – and I think this time of the year is one of the best (if not the best) for most people who enjoy the sun and the sea. Moreover, people’s mood is getting better and better each and every sunny day and with the right rock/metal music, it can reach the sky!   Apart from the above-mentioned things, there...

So much music...

There are times that you wonder why there’s so much music out there. Why are there so many releases by labels & independently each week? Not that this a bad thing or anything, but personally I cannot remember a worst time for music in general which has had so many releases every month.   People (fans) hardly buy any hard copies, or even the digital...

Analog sound strikes back…

Life is going in circles… and so is music and everything that has to do with people’s lives. I remember how fast technology influenced music recordings and production in late 90s/early 00s and how every sound engineer & music producer were trying to get rid of the old equipment (tape analog consoles etc.) and get into the new digital stuff....

Rock Stars in our time…

Where are the Rock Stars of our time? I mean like the Rock Stars of the old days. According to the “Rock Star” definition: “a Rock Star is a famous or successful member of rock band, especially with a celebrity status”. Well, I do not agree 100% with that definition, since the celebrity thing is something of the modern times.   Just...

The modern and retro rock/metal music of our time…

It’s the modern rock/metal music of our time… actually after the 00s when everything changed in a “weird” way globally and not only in the music part. Why’s that? What’s going on with the so called “modern” music that once was very trendy, but over the last years has started to become a bit dull, unexciting and...

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/...
