Deep Purple: Live in London (Review)

Few bands have been through as many incarnations and line-ups as Deep Purple have, and they spent eight years broken up. Today’s review comes from the Mark III lineup of the band, consisting of Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. It was recorded, as you could probably tell, in LondonContinue reading “Deep Purple: Live in London (Review)”

Song of the Week Jr- Motorhead

It’s been a little while since we’ve looked at some Motörhead. Despite my review of Iron Fist, I really do like the band. That album just didn’t do it for me beyond the tracks I’d already heard. Anyway, for the band’s first song of the week we’ll be looking at the song the band isContinue reading “Song of the Week Jr- Motorhead”

Max the Axe: Oktoberfest Cheer (Review)

Canadians Max the Axe are back with a new EP, dedicated to the Bavarian festival of the tenth month. Members Eric Litwiller, Mike Koutis, Dave Haslam and Mike Mitchell all return, bringing their A-game as usual. The EP kicks off with opener “Pygmy Blowdart”, and, yep, the band still rule. All the familiar trappings ofContinue reading “Max the Axe: Oktoberfest Cheer (Review)”

Song of the Week Jr- Lock up Your Daughters

Slade haven’t featured on this site for a while, which is a bit of a shame because they rule. So to rectify that we’ll be having a little look at one of my favorite songs of theirs. Top 3 Renditions 1- On Stage Rough, raw and unhinged, this speedier play-through of the song absolutely rules.Continue reading “Song of the Week Jr- Lock up Your Daughters”

Black Sabbath: Reunion (Review)

Looks like it’s a back to back Sabbath double these past two posts. I didn’t originally plan it this way, but a minor disagreement in the comments of last week’s song of the week sent me back to this one. So what do you get from the first Black Sabbath shows with all the originalContinue reading “Black Sabbath: Reunion (Review)”

Song of the Week- N.I.B.

Black Sabbath returns! And today it’s the one that caused many a debate over the inspiration for the title. Top 5 Renditions 1- Live Evil I first heard this version when browsing the interwebs for versions of this song after hearing Ozzy do it on Reunion. I was looking for a vintage live version andContinue reading “Song of the Week- N.I.B.”

Alice Cooper- Special Forces (Review)

Time for some more Alice Cooper. I usually go a little more random, but this time I chose to check out the next album after Flush the Fashion because of my love for most that album. And Special Forces is a darn good album too. All the songs do at least something for me, andContinue reading “Alice Cooper- Special Forces (Review)”

Song of the Week- Start Me Up

It wasn’t going to be any other band this week. For a long time as a kid all I had of The Rolling Stones to listen to was Tattoo You, and this song was my favorite on that album. Then, one time on the drive back from a holiday down south, me and my dadContinue reading “Song of the Week- Start Me Up”

Iron Maiden: Stratego (Review)

Iron Maiden were generous enough to release another advance single from their upcoming Senjutsu album. This time it is the second track on the album. And like with “The Writing on the Wall” I’m going to give it a little write-up. So let’s begin. Though it gets straight into the action from the off, IContinue reading “Iron Maiden: Stratego (Review)”

Song of the Week Jr- Rocka Rolla

Another small one this week. And it’s one of my favorite Judas Priest songs. Though it wasn’t the first one I heard ever, that infectious riff opened the Judas Priest dual review series very optimistically, though we know how that went between Sad Wings of Destiny and Screaming For Vengeance. Top Three Renditions 1- TheContinue reading “Song of the Week Jr- Rocka Rolla”
