Review: Tossers “Long Dim Road”

Tossers “Long Dim Road” (Thick Records) Oy, where’s me Guiness? The Tossers take the mighty sounds of the Irish and whip it into a tamer, calmer version of the spectacular Flogging Molly. Many bands have tried to capture the traditional,…

Review: The Yo-Yos “Uppero and Downero”

The Yo-Yos “Uppero and Downero” (Sub Pop Records) Wow! Excellent pop rock by the impeccable Yo-Yos.  Sporting the greased up pompadours and the leather jackets, the Yo-Yos return with their most promising album yet.  “Uppero and Downero” provides a healthy…

Review: In Flames

In Flames ““Clayman”” (Nuclear Blast) Out of Gothenburg, Sweden comes the straight up metal act In Flames with “Clayman”. A hard rocking band that brings together a myriad of different sounds all over the metal map including death, thrash, black,…
