NI ROCKS Recommends "End Game" by NAKED
“End Game” is the debut album from Scandinavia based band Naked and it was released through Escape Music on 20th November. The label “melodic rock” has been applied to the band. However, to be honest, whilst there are a couple of tamer, more mellow tracks on the album, probably the majority; or at least all my favourites, are from the heavier end of the “melodic rock” spectrum. The “melodic rock” label is probably one of the most expansive of the rock music genres and it is little wonder that so many bands seem to attract that label. In an era when all music seems to need a label other than simply “rock” maybe that is just the safest option for all those that don’t fit at the heavier end of the spectrum. The track “Blood of My Blood” is included on the Friday NI Rocks Show broadcast on 27th November.

ALBUM REVIEW: Månegarm maul the senses on self-titled release
AHH Vikings - much maligned in history, a loose term applied to farmers and fishermen who had a land grab policy throughout western Europe and beyond.
But, in musical terms there is a rich tapestry of various shades of 'Viking' metal, ranging from those with an eye firmly on the folk side of the equation to the high concept black metal variants.
NEWS: 180gm vinyl release for four albums by The Black Crowes
WITH Rich Robinson recently touring the UK and Ireland it must have seemed opportune for the record label to re-release classic albums by The Black Crowes, but at lease they're doing it right.
'Shake Your Money Maker' was the album that broke the band way back in 1990 under Rick Rubin's Def American label, smashing its way into the Billboard 100 and also performing well across the UK.
The album will be released as a single 180gm vinyl disc.
EP REVIEW: Megaherz improve with Erdwärts release
WHILE receiving much critical acclaim the 'Zombieland' release by German band Megaherz left
us a little non-plussed, and not just because the band sing in their native tongue.
Caught between straightforward rock and the melodrama of Rammstein it seemed not to have a singular identity compared to their earlier release 'Gotterdammerung'.
But the four new tracks on 'Erdwärts' have a cohesiveness and sense of purpose and, at times a sense of menace.<br
