Be unique – find an exclusive band name...

I was looking at a band’s name the other day and it was familiar in a way. Then I did a brief search and I found out that there have been at least 4-5 bands with the same name since the 70s. This wasn’t the first time that I happened upon a band with a name that has been used before. This is sort of an issue that’s more evident today than ever. I...

Dumb ways against Piracy...

It’s been quite a while since I wrote down some things about the music business and the way things work these days. Hence, the new trend has to do with the digital promos… but hey that ain’t new at all. Sure it ain’t! But I’m talking about the streaming promos! Hooray!!! Things are even easier now! All you’ve gotta do is stream...

You are never too old to try new things...

Well, since it’s officially Spring now and the time has also changed, I decided to do a little “experiment” and see if people are interested in new releases and new bands or not, especially these days.   Having been a part of several FB rock/metal music groups and on FB pages, I started posting videos and tracks of bands that have come out...

Full of oneself...

Something very wrong is going on with the “music industry” these days. And by “music industry” or “music scene” if you prefer, I mean the DIY or independent bands that are increasingly releasing albums every so often. I do know how hard things are when an independent band has a new album out and how difficult it is to be reviewed...

Life, Death & Foolish Acts in Between

How not to comment on the frequency that some Rock Stars & legendary musicians have passed away over the last month or so?! It’s like the “old rock/metal generation” is leaving us for good! And that ain’t a good thing cuz there are not so great rock personalities or songwriters today, like the ones who used to be in the 60s, 70s &...

Merry Xmas & Best Wishes for a Rockin’ 2016!

Another year has passed, with its bad & its good times. It’s Xmas time again; time to relax (those who can), re-arrange our thoughts & acts and have some time on our own to do the things we like the most.   In comparison to 2014, I think that 2015 was a better year for the rock & metal music. Specifically, the second part of 2015 was better...

About the Greek rock & metal scene...

Well it’s one of these times again, when a conversation ends up in total confusion as you do not know what’s exactly the mistake that needs to be fixed and who’s to blame at all. I had a conversation the other day with a friend of mine about the Greek rock/metal scene and we were talking about why the Greek scene never managed to break its barrier...

The blind leading the blind…

Well, you never know what might pop-up out of nothing every month or so. This time I had to deal with those musicians who cannot stand to get a bad review. They believe everything they touch is gold and everyone should bow to their greatness! The most disappointing thing of all is how some fans/followers act the way they are told to by their leaders – the...

Reviews & Ratings - Big Bands & Labels

So… here we are again saying “goodbye” to Summer and hailing Autumn. In truth to be told, September is a “hot” month not only due to its “high temperatures” but also due to the “hot new releases” by some of the biggest Metal bands this month. I guess the lion’s share on the rock & metal magazines,...
