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/...

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...
