Judas Priest

Judas Priest

Having been born in an economically and geographically isolated region, I frequently found myself seeking new music from less than likely sources. As a result, when presented with a copy of the Judas Priest classic British Steel (1980), I found myself wondering 'is this really happening?' as “Living After Midnight” roared through my headphones of my Walkman. The rest is ancient history as I've been happily 'throwing the horns' and to all things Judas Priest since.

Overkill

Overkill

When Overkill unleashed Feel The Fire (1985), few knew of the true impact they would have on still-burgeoning genre. Although the ensuing years haven't always been forgiving, the group bravely soldiered on, issuing their critical and commercial breakthrough The Years Of Decay (1989). Now, nearly thirty years later, they have returned with the devastating White Devil Armory. Read More

Rubicon CrossRubicon Cross

As I've aged, my tastes and, as a result, the artists and groups I find myself partaking in the most have changed dramatically. An exception to this change has been iconic Hard Rock veterans Firehouse. Led by frontman CJ Snare and guitarist Bill Leverty, the group bust onto the scene with Firehouse (1990). Now, nearly twenty five years later, I now myself enthralled with the full-length debut from the mighty Rubicon Cross. Read More

Dilana Robichaux

Dilana Robichaux

Throughout my career as a music and 'entertainment' journalist, I have been blessed with opportunities to work with artists and groups that the public at large are more than likely unfamiliar with. A prime example of such an artist is Dilana Robichaux. Having already released pair of well-received solo efforts and finishing second behind Lukas Rossi on Rockstar: Supernova, Robichaux wasted little time unveiling the gem Beautiful Monster. Read More

Exotype

Cover 1

Let's face it folks; it’s not always pretty when the oten tumultuous realms best known as the Heavy Metal and Sci-Fi genres collide.  Even with the presence of full-fledged classics such as the Fear Factory gem Soul Of A New Machine (1992), most listeners remain impressed.  As a result, you can only imagine my excitement when Orlando, Florida-based upstarts Exotype announced the release of their self-titled debut.Hear More

Maxxxwell Carlisle

Cover 1

The Urban Dictionary best defines a nutswinger as 'someone who follows ever move they make'. Although such a description may lack originality, it does in fact accurately summarize my feelings about notoriously muscule-bound guitarist Maxxxwell Carlisle. In fact, for as long as I can remember, I’ve been a disturbingly-dedicated fan of his distinctive, shred-laden tonalities in groups as diverse as the Neil Turbin's Deathriders and Hellion.Hear More
