Dio - The Very Beast Of Vol. 2

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Many words have already been written about the huge loss the Metal scene suffered when Dio left this world almost 2 years ago and I am sure more are to follow. There is no one to step into his shoes and I hope his name will live many decades in the hearts of the old metalheads who had the chance to watch him perform live but also of the young metalheads who know this artist (yeah, Dio was a genuine artist) just by name.

Youngblood - No Retreat

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

If you think everything regarding the so-called ‘hair’ Metal scene has already emerged, conquered and settled down during the late 80s and early 90s and only, with no other material to be seeing the light of day, you’re probably wrong. As in the case of every other Rock/Metal genre, the boulevard Rock style had tons of bands that did not eventually make it to even have their recorded material seen in the record store shelves.

Dare - Calm Before The Storm 2

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The other side of Hard Rock – the one that does not rely on straightforward riffing and pounding rhythms – is the one where everything gets emotional. And that’s something Darren Wharton surely knows even from his early 80s days as the keyboardist for Irish legends THIN LIZZY but mainly via his solo vehicle DARE. The sense of melody Wharton has captured in his songs is a rare case seen in British Rock (and not only).

Circle II Circle - Full Circle: The Best Of

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s strange but I have been always considering CIRCLE II CIRCLE as a project band by Zak Stevens since I was sure an announcement about the re-activation of SAVATAGE would hit the media very soon. Well, ‘very soon’ lasted almost one decade and this ‘best of’ compilation came to wipe the ‘project-band’ off my mind once and for all.
