There’s no doubt that the second wave of ‘80s hair metal and those MTV video stars killing the radio…
Residing smack dab at the stylistic intersection of Boogie Boulevard and Prog Place, the Long Island-based band, Blue Öyster…
“Tonight’s the night, we’ll make history…” Paradise lost. Dennis DeYoung enters the hallowed halls of the theatre and recreates…

Vivian Campbell, Vinny Appice, Phil Soussan, and Andrew Freeman collectively known as Last in Line, are set to release their second album, II via Frontiers Music Srl on February 22, 2019. They talked about the album just as new single “Landslide” dropped.

Toronto got a treat last Saturday night with an epic performance by Oregon rockers Black ‘N Blue. It’s difficult to fathom, but this was their first-ever concert in Canada.
In support of Defying Gravity, Mr. Big — still comprised of Martin, Gilbert, Sheehan and Torpey — is in the midst of a world tour. We had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Martin about his life on-stage and off.
Great White is yet another band that achieved great success in the mid to late eighties and has since been trying to reclaim just a portion of that acclaim. As with most of the groups from that era that are still knocking around, Great White has gone through countless lineup changes and has seen their fair share of tragedy, though they’ve still managed to release a number of decent rock n roll albums along the way.
In Progress is the latest release from Swedish melodic hard rock outfit, Work Of Art, and there’s enough passion, energy, melody, and well-crafted arrangements packed into this disc to really satisfy fans of the genre. The disc opens with a bang and I found myself totally rocking out to “The Rain” and “Nature Of The Game”, but then things got a little sketchy for me.
This disc has been a looong time coming! The melodic UK rockers, Airrace released their debut way back in 1984 and are finally following it up with their sophomore effort a staggering 27 years later. I’m not sure many bands would be able to pull off a feat like this, but amazingly Airrace has done it! They’ve successfully released a relevant melodic, hard rock record that I think fans of the genre will totally dig.
As a longtime fan of Sebastian Bach’s work, I had mixed feelings when I popped this into the player. I was hoping it would be better than his last solo release, Angel Down, which never really did anything for me. I was routing for him when the opening track, “Kicking & Screaming,” started the album off.
Night Ranger doesn’t recreate the wheel on their new disc Somewhere In California, but rather stuck close to familiar territory, releasing a record that consists of great big choruses, lots of sing-along moments and a pristine production. While this record doesn’t tread new territory, it doesn’t necessarily miss the mark entirely either.
