Different perspectives cause turmoil...

Sometimes you may not have a clue of what the next editorial would be like, but suddenly something always shows you the way. This month I’d like to refer to an “odd situation” which occurred after the publication of an album review.   I understand that most bands/musicians believe that their albums are the best music works the world have...

Junk Music of our time...

What’s wrong with music today? What has happened? Why did we come to this point? I know that the means for one to record, mix, play and release a track or an EP or a full-length album is easy to obtain but is that all? What’s the point of making music of any kind? From teenagers up to “forgotten” musicians, in their basement or their attic,...

Indie Music, Labels & MP3

How fast time passes… It’s almost impossible to catch up with it, no matter how hard we try. In the end, there are only the good memories that are left with… the ones that we try hard to create each & every day. The same goes for music more or less. How much music is released every day… one is impossible to keep up with it… but...

Rockin’ Summertime...

Summer is indeed a magical season. As I’m writing these words, I’m gazing at the endless blue of the sea while listening to prog rock/metal music. What a fine way to write down any article.   Music business has started to become a field where the nastiest, the sneakiest & the copycats are getting all the credits and make money out of the...

The music trend of our time

All this metalcore, extreme emo-core mania of our times kinda reminds me of the trend with grunge music in the early 90s. If you didn’t play grunge music back then no label was interested in your band. The same goes for all today’s talentless, unskilled & funny little bands which sell aggressiveness & extreme attitudes for nothing. If you have...

Music press & music industry...

It’s to wonder how the major & much heralded music magazines & webzines support, advertise & promote various bands & artists that we – the common people, the lowly digital music press – despise, loathe, mock & dislike generally. What do they see that we don’t? What do they get and we cannot get it? Certainly, those press...

Spring Time...

Auspiciously, winter is over and spring is on the way. What a great time… especially when summer is nearby. Musically, two months have passed since the beginning of 2014 and there are numerous very good releases on the market. Specifically, February was the month with the most and best releases. March is coming in full force as well.   As you have...

Grande Rock - The Best of 2013

We welcome 2014 with our best wishes and thoughts. 2013 is already in the history books and, in truth to be told, it wasn’t so much of a great rock/metal year, at least in my book. We always have high hopes & expectations every New Year so raising the bar higher than in the past should always be in everyone’s agenda. Here, on Grande Rock, we have...
