There are a handful of bands at the moment that are injecting new life into the tried, tested and frankly long due for an overhaul rock and roll format. 358 more words


Omni\One - Halo Tora (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

It takes a certain type of band to make music that is as expressive, emotive and engaging as the most eloquent of lyrics and create vocal deliveries what are as elegant and fluid as the instrumentation behind it. 148 more words
