Bloom By The Paper Kites

I am always in constant search of small alternative artists and this song is amazing! It’s super catchy and has been replaying in my head all the time this week. 65 more words


Music Review: FINAL DESTINY - North Of Hell

North Of Hell

Well. That’s the last time I get a CD without first listening to it. Why’d I get this? Well, first off, the title ‘North Of Hell’ sounded like a play on Slayer’s ‘South Of Heaven’, and I couldn’t find anything or anyone to give me a general idea what this CD was like. 70 more words

Music Review: GRAMMATRAIN - Flying

Forefront Records

I honestly can’t remember just how this particular album ended up in my collection. I don’t remember ever buying it, nor do I recall anyone giving it to me. 390 more words

Music Review: GUARDIAN - Fire & Love

Fire & Love

The second release from Guardian was something of a breakthrough for the band. After being released from the Enigma label, they found a new lead vocalist in former Tempest singer Jamie Rowe, and was signed to Pakaderm, the imprint label of the production sibling duo Elephante on the Word, Inc. 115 more words

Music Review: GUARDIAN - First Watch

First Watch
Enigma Records

Depending on who you talk to, Guardian’s first studio release is considered either a classic in the melodic metal / hard rock genre, or a good debut album, but not as good as the future releases. 400 more words
