Suicidal Tendencies - Still Cyco Punk After All These Years

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

There are bands which, as years go by, they get soft(er) and maybe a little bit too professional, meaning that they know what to do and what to say to look like nothing has changed (yeah, right). Well, the seasoned metalhead (hopefully) knows when to call bullshit and there are quite a few bands out there that have become performers of their own music. So, reading the title of the new SUICIDAL TENDENCIES LP stating “Still Cyco Punk After All These Years” can make the ‘bullshit’ sensor to go off, simply because it is impossible to believe a band formed in the ‘80s to be cyco, especially when considering Mike Muir’s age. But hold on a minute; isn’t this the band that has been storming the stages all around the world, sweating their arses off from the first all the way to the last minute of the set? You bet it is, so you better take the album’s title at face value, put on your S/T t-shirt and get ready to keep up with Mike because he has a tank full of gas and he’s ready to floor the gas pedal... Ready or not, here it goes!

Graham Bonnet Band - Meanwhile, Back In The Garage

The 2016 titled “The Book” came as a bit of a surprise as it was a consistent piece of classic Heavy Metal; I don't know what I should be expecting from GRAHAM BONNET BAND really, most likely something softer. No matter what, the album exceeded my expectations by far, so now, for “Meanwhile, Back In The Garage” I was looking forward to hearing something similar.

The Skull - The Endless Road Turns Dark

Greatness; yes, that would be the only word I will use to describe the sophomore album of Chicago’s masters of Doom THE SKULL who continue to produce moody yet crushing tunes, tinged with all the dark colors of the universe. I know, you may think I’m overselling this, but once you have experienced with your own ears how the album opener kicks the door down, you will understand the greatness of this lineup which loyally serves the Heavy music for more than three decades. And yes, it kind of contradicts the fact that the heavier-than-Heavy [sic] “The Endless Road Turns Dark” is just the band’s second full length effort...

Don Airey - One Of A Kind

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

"Can you feel the music running through your veins?" That’s the first thing you see when upon opening the booklet to Don Airey’s fifth solo album, titled “One Of A Kind”. It’s actually just recently I’ve really gained a real interest in various band members’ solo albums. I've of course been familiar with Don Airey's capabilities since long but it has always been the main bands that have caught my interest. Yes, I know, I know, I’ve missed a lot of good music by doing this but it’s better to start late than never, right? With this (and because of his long list of merits), I had no idea what to expect from Don Airey, what he could deliver and frankly my expectations were very far off from what’s delivered on “One Of A Kind”.
