SWEDISH sleaze rock doesn't come much better, ladies and gentlemen than Crazy Lixx. These Scandinavian rockers only serve to prove just how spoilt their region is for talent.

Twin guitar, killer riffs and  memorable choruses make this outfit a worthy match for the likes of Sweden's Crashdiet, Hardcore

WHEN discussing with a colleague the upcoming Electric Mary gig on Friday (November 7th) at Diamond Rock Club it was difficult to pin down exactly what these Oz rockers could be described as...


The closest we came to was Black Stone Cherry meet The Answer, Jet and Airbourne on the way to a BB King gig.


And, as we

A FEW years ago Black Stone Cherry seemingly came from nowhere, a hard rockin' southern US band full of passion, riffs and songs, backed a label that seemed to understand where they were coming from, and four guys who seemed to have hard work ingrained in their core.

Moving from bigger and bigger venues Black Stone Cherry now

“Unleash the Fire” is the first album from Riot V and it was released through Steamhammer / SPV on 27th October. Riot V is the natural successor to power metal band Riot, following a decision to rename the group after the death of founder Mark Reale in January 2012.  Former Riot members Mike Flyntz on guitar (since 1989), Don Van Stavern on bass (from 1986 originally) and Frank Gilchriest on drums (from 2003 originally) are joined by Todd Michael Hall on vocals and Nick Lee on guitar. “Unleash the Fire” is a very fitting addition to the Riot discography albeit under a different name.

After reading the press release for the debut album from Swedish rockers Bulletrain I thought the least I could do was give it a listen. It’d be fair to say that the band seem to have a few ups and downs between their formation in 2006 and the release of “Start Talking” by AOR Heaven on 27th October.  I hadn’t heard the band’s earlier EPs so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but “Start Talking” is definitely worth checking out. It may have taken them a while to get there but their perseverance has resulted in an album that they can take pride in.

Angels or Kings trace their roots back to Manchester in 1988. Like many of those local bands making a name for themselves in the AOR / hair-metal heyday of the late 80s and early 90s, they weren’t to survive the changes in the rock scene in the 90s. They’ve now re-emerged with a new singer and released their debut album called “Kings of Nowhere” through the AOR Heaven label on 24th October.

THERE is such a thing as using invective as a rhetorical device in speeches and writing, but at times deploying invective in musical lyrics can be a tricky business. Once upon a diseased time such invective was limited to punk.

Responsible metal acts of all genres now take on the use of invective, but it is rare that the musical
