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,...

Music leads the way through the dark times...

I couldn’t help but comment that almost every part of our lives is a bit mess. The global economy is heading downhill, even though some believe that they are safe & secure in comparison to others. The quality of our lives is not as it used to be 10 or 20 or 30 years ago. Too much anxiety, concern, stress & fear both for today and tomorrow. As expected...

The new “old” music trend...

It’s a fact that rock & metal are going through their hardest and most laborious crisis ever. I can’t remember a time since the early 60s that the music business was such a mess like today. There’s nothing to remind of the glorious days except for some old bands which have become a shadow of themselves and others which are trying hard to stay...

Music quality vs Music quantity

It’s to wonder how the music industry is coping these days. During the economic crisis & recession the consumers’ salary is shrinking day by day so the CD, vinyl and digital sales have been going downhill as well. Music is supposed to be fun, entertainment and amusement apart from a high expression of art, which always comes first.   But...

EPs & various review stories…

I was about to talk about some totally different things in this editorial but a few last incidents urged me to talk about the reviews of EPs, singles, compilations, live albums and albums which were released the previous years. Even though we have placed a text about these things on the contact page which clarifies things… we still get, even to this day,...
