Review: Blood Red

Blood Red ““Hostage”” (Initial Records) Despite the rather dismal name of this band it actually comes from a U2 song, go figure.  Blood Red heralds from Long Island and I would imagine is a very important part of the island’s…

Review: Bo Hansson

Bo Hansson “Sagan Om Ringen” (Silence Records) “Sagan Om Ringen” translates as “Lord of the Rings.” While this CD comes out in the midst of the film version of the complete trilogy, this album originally came out in 1972. Complete…

Review: Cady Finlayson

Cady Finlayson “Shines like Silver” (Cady Finlayson) In producing this record, Cady (pronounced “Caddy”) seeks to document the American-Irish sound of fiddle music. Her warm and upbeat presentation of instrumental reels, work songs, jigs and more is directed toward appealing…

Review: Cattle Decapitation

Cattle Decapitation ““To Serve Man”” (Metal Blade) Ex-members of the Locust, among others, offer us their brutal first full-length cut for Metal Blade.  A far cry from the sans bass, 30 second song freakfests some of us were privileged enough…

Review: The Clarks

The Clarks “Another Happy Ending” (Razor and Tie) Midwest-ready, Bic-flicking, radio rock from a group flaunting twelve-string guitar wailing and a big, throaty Creed-like vocal presence. If you were retarded enough to purchase the soundtrack to the inane Freddie Prinze…

Review: Common Rider

Common Rider “This is Unity Music” (Hopeless Records) You can’t keep a good band alive. Just isnt possible. Look at Guns N Roses, one of the best rock bands in history and is currently being smothered by an aged, overweight…

Review: The Company Of Snakes

The Company Of Snakes “Burst The Bubble” (Steamhammer / SPV) With three of the original members of Whitesnake, Micky Moody (guitars), Bernie Marsden (guitars) and Neil Murray (bass), along with new additions Don Airey (keyboards), Stefan Berggren (vocals) and John…

Review: …And Oceans

…And Oceans “Cypher” (Century Media) I don’t know what it is, but my heart always opens wide to Scandinavian metal bands like the flower of my fragile womanhood before a Norse God.  …And Oceans come from the Finnish portion of…
