I’m gonna say some things about the ratings of the album reviews and the perfect scores or the close to perfect scores in a brief way, cuz the specific theme has been fully analyzed on an editorial that was written back in 2015 (check it out here).   It’s so common to see newcomers, less known,… Read More

So, the day has come for a more censored internet! Sounds unexpected or bizarre?! Sure it does but it’s the damn truth and Europe is leading the way! Yeah the European parliament has voted to vastly increase internet censorship. Hence the specific directive is all about the copyright issues, and… Read More

2019 has come in full force, since many great releases are already out and others are on the pipeline as we speak. It seems that 2019 will be a better year than 2018, especially on the music part… but let’s hope it will also be on all other parts that affect our lives too, especially in a positive… Read More

It’s that time of the year again! So, here we are with Grande Rock’s “Best of” list for 2018! Check it out here!   I won’t say that 2018 was a great music year, but wasn’t a bad one either … it was OK in general. There were some amazing releases, lots of mediocre and some just fine ones on the… Read More

I remember writing about band reunions & comebacks almost a year ago (check it out here) and how things have changed as more and more well-known or underground bands are reuniting these days and start touring and releasing new albums.   To my surprise, after writing the editorial about the “… Read More

Every start is difficult… that’s what we thought before we decided to put Grande Rock online again back in late 2011, after a 4year hiatus. We knew that we were going to have a tough time, since the web has changed a lot from 2001, when GR was online.   We designed the ezine from the start, built… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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!  … Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More
