Ground Zero Neurotic (Roadrunner Records 1987)


Brooklyn, New York in the midst of ninety two era ruled by the empowered violence of Thrash Metal waves and other Metal maniac music spawning various terrible names which for some managed to gather more attention and becoming legends or respectable pioneers and one of thus name is Carnivore that formed itself as a trio consisting of Peter Steele (vocals, bass), Louie (drums) and Marc (guitars, vocals) as these underground outfit would sounded familiar to Overkill meets the early troop of James Hetfield or in between the Hardcore Punk anguish and Thrash shocking Metal producing the combination of pure Metallic sound faster enough to destroying the neighborhood and the glance of Doomy influences later brought by Mr. Steele to his next Gothic Metal experiments later. Carnivore's second earbreaker charging explosions album Retaliation is a good example about how awesome the New York City Metal scene grown up from years of struggle to giving birth to the best bands ever coming out from that area. You will get crush slowly by the formidable closest to Anarchy tempos and brutal infiltration through sadistic blasts of Inner Conflict, Race War, Technophobia, Five Billion Dead, Jesus Hitler and even the silly song Jack Daniel's and Pizza for watching the last days of the Coldwar.
One needs to pay attention about this band even when they're now might disbanded and long gone; the legacy of hatred and malfunctioned arts influences carried on by the ashes through winds.

   The jaggernaut sound of destruction and harbringer combinations between Rob's signatured screaming vocals and the crunching metal music is the key for this debut album entitle War of Words to eventually didn't need too much time to surfacing through the Rock Media's radar as a great comeback from the mouth of Priest himself.
   Crushing riffs and tempo plus untamed drummings and rhythm sections would do good damage for you in the pit by chopping up weak ears and fake listeners within Immortal Sin, Life in Black, Laid to Rest and Nailed to The Gun which really could delivering the pressure to bown down once again to the Biker Man whose control the microphone and will definitely ready to fight any of you !


First Break Of Heart (Melodian 1991)


   This Hard Rock outfit straight coming from Melbourne, Australia might not be the concrete example of a band that unluckily only having their short moments to shine through the Rock Music career but even for Roxus; which actually sounded very pleasantly delicious for Rock and Pop fans, the term of one hit wonder didn't really too bothering for them as long as some people still remembered how this five piece group had their time for ruling the Radio Charts with the rest of the Hair Metal pioneers before the instant explosion of Grunge came.
   Sounded like the transplants between Bret Michaels of Poison and the harder version of Osmond Brothers in their nineties rock n' roll attitude - Roxus led by vocalist Juno Roxas and four of his rockhead friends probably can giving you a good headbanging times during the listening to this Nightstreet album.
   Brilliantly glamour and groovy with catchy choruses and fine melodic solos; one needs to open their hearts for the pleasure romantic story songs about relationships and other hillarious topics brought by Hard Rock like on the anthemic Bad Boys, Midnight Love, My Way to the band's classic hits that will never fades - Where Are You Now ? (damn, you would love to hearing this all over again !)

   Sadly, this group didn't make it out towards the tight selection of the Alternative Rock striking era soon after that.

   Considering as their best recording so far - Journey's Escape album not only includes some of the best cuts ever made by this AOR legends but also having their complete line-up here being adorn by rock lovers and potentially would put you r miserable lives back on track. With the "soul of the band" vocalist Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain (keyboards, guitars, piano), Neal Schon on guitars and backing vocals to Ross Valory (bass) and Steve Smith on drums; Journey becoming one of the ultimate Slow Rock bands that selling million records since then and no one will ever wanted to dismiss listening beautiful tracks like Don't Stop Believin', Open Arms or Stone in Love which became the band's best hits forever in Rock's golden collection forever. The good intimated soft soaring melodies and catchy tunes to listening without problems louder on the Highway probably the number one reason why this group being truly loved by American Rock public and everyone whose since the releasing of this record proclaiming themselves to become a fanatic fan. In AOR golden decades: the charismatic sophomore vocals of Perry and the combinations of neaty Soft Rock sounds by Schon and Cain might be then an essence of their band tones for decades.

Catchy lyrics and rocking dance simple beats will giving you a glance of good vibrations and smiling attitude to follow songs like Meet Me in The Middle, Say it isn't true, Fallen Angel to Never Be Another One which pretty anthemic and carrying most of the stained feelings left behind by the borderline between the late New Wave music and the influental Dance-Rock mix which already giving most of our parents, uncles and aunties a damn good time of their life back there.
This Canadian group The Arrows might be one of those "forget to noticed" bands from the same era releasing their Poppy record that would make you thinking about Hawkeye's hot mom completed with her Archery equipments ready to posing in tight dark suits for the band's front cover.
Try to listen to Girl in 313 which also having a great videoclip or getting the brokenhearted issue right on Enough is Never Enough and seeing if some of your older family members will still be dancing to this - Stand Back album !
Consisting of more than ten band members like Dean Mc taggart on vocals or Rob Gusevs the keyboardist; no wonder this band didn't survived the  mis-management problems back to that days but luckily, they're particularly one of those one night stand performers producing good music to us.

Stand Back:

Guesser Fragment's Shelter (Heavenly 2014)


   You may feeling trancend while listening to these English Psychedelic unit made of Kettering by the quartet of young folks with 70's oldie souls brought their mystic lyrics and rhetoric Pop-retro sounds ebut release of Sun Structures which also having the mysterious display of a strange tower on the front cover surrounded by the band members same as the music containde inside it; the tranquillity melodies to the firm-structured beats taht could hypnotizing the listeners just like The Beatles did.
Temples might born too darn late for playing this type of Eastern Oriented kind of music but with their talents of combining this with a little bit of Garage Rock attitude and multi-interpreted of wisdom and lyrics - James Bagshaw, Adam Smith, Samuel Toms and Thomas Warmsley are confirming their aims to tempted the audiences for this symphonic from the past Summer of Drugs and The second Renaissance called The Age of Aquarius through their seductive tracks like A Question Isn't Answered, Sand Dance, The Golden Throne or Test of Time.

Everything's flowing like shroom effects ...



Streched Thin Forget (Independent 2013)


   Crossing the State highways to Denver, Colorado to meet one of the infamous Sludge Metal characters with their ability of correlated producing and distributes the malfunction white noise on disc plates and selling them as an infection worldwide to the area outside this dangerous band dwelled right now. Primitive Man is a trio of low-life existence without border in mixed races - two whiteys JC (bass) and Ethan McCarthy (guitars, vocals) and a black drummer named Bennett Kennedy strapping the naked truth about overloaded volume speakers, destructive unbound doomy beats and limitless riffage which can cutting their audiences into tiny pieces in just one strike like a shovel to the head.
Hailing their broken howling debut Scorn and spreading the malfunctioned noise tones like a meaningless but after a while even the smartest person on Earth would realized that this lot is really dangerous and hungry for feasting on the lost souls scattered across the empty highways slicing the land, waiting to consumed by either death or evil.
Thunderous growler attacks explodes with thus overdubbed PA's system and the malignant echoes terrible feedback from here to the deep dark pit of Hell and back again ...
   Be scared of Rags, Antietam, Black Smoke and Astral Sleep. Hide your youngsters and kill yourself after them before this band gets you.


Hail Hail (Feretro Records 2010)


Who said that a band can only worshipping Satan through a Metal extremist acts using vocals ? Not necessary anymore when you can build your own Indie Doomy destroyer group without vocals but still can be sounded "undergroundly Satanic" to the core. Meet Bongripper - the Illinois Grindcore Sludge quartet consisting of Nick Dellacroce (guitars), Daniel O'Connor (drums), Ronald Petzke (bass) and Dennis Pleckham (guitars) releasing their wrath of the dark-side to the weak modern world with their ultimate earthquaking devastation record - Satan Worshipping Doom; a powerful and outraguous record with four tracks that will torturing you and your family for entirely gone to be cursed and condemned by these unholy and pure blasphemous riffs and metallic sounds straight imported from Hell on for example: Worship which durated until sixteen minutes of fatal explorations to the edgy suffering non-human noises as the explosive beginning of the countdown to extinction.

The underground metallic sound ritual for cosmic light burial of Him.


Voice On A Hotline (Epic 1986)


Unless you are the diehard fans of the television series - Miami Vice, you would be so surprising to see Don Johnson the actor retiring his day-job for a while to started a musical career rather than shooting bad guys or endlessly tiresome of weak seductions over the downtown nightlife. Don decided to have his own term and time to go for an adventure through recording songs and imagined himself as an ordinary field reporter moving from places to cover the latest news of thrilling issues, famine or civil wars on a remote country. Having on board top ten legendary guitarist on his six strings department from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Dweezil Zappa with other semi-legendary musicians from various music styles like Omar Hakim, Bashiri Johnson to Chris Botti involving on this Pop Rock record of Mr. Don Johnson vocals ambition. Heartbeat album filled with mostly cheesy music and too hillarious like Love Roulette, Star Tonight or Heartache Away but on the other hand, this album showing that music isn't just about the money but passion to making it happens - that's matter to Don on this for showing the world that the adventure is on and there are some things to be sacrificed to achieving greater aims - for this moment maybe he just signing a goodbye contract to his beloved wife Melanie Griffith and his movie career for another passionated purposes among th eheat of the night rain.


Sheffield Milestone Laughter (Geffen Records 1993)


Not too be too seriously sure or confusing to mentioned Sugartooth; one of the second level Alternative/Grunge bands from the nineties era with much good straight forward rocking ready tunes but not too much story to tell except that they're founded after a band circuit meeting between the trio of Timothy Michael Gruse (lead/rhythm guitar), Marc Hutner (vocals, guitars) and Josh Blum (bass) somewhere on the Southern California area as these new rockheads decided to form a band since then. Opening for  various names from Stone Temple Pilots to Soundgarden; the band's also appearing for fame through Beavis and Butthead Show and Howard Stern Private Parts until releasing their first album the self-titled Sugartooth. Capturing the slow beats and doomy Sabbath semi-Seattle riffage and intense stranger licks towards their songs and lyrics, Sugartooth probably would have much better opportunity during the surfacing of these rock unit on a mainstream shore but unluckily not for long (even) they're already legally under the wings of famous record company at that time - DGC. Using the skilled drummers like Randy Castillo or Dusty Watson as an additional personel for shaping this record to be sounded independent and Grungy in its atmost appearances, still - time and fortune cannot be by their side for longer time. Rescheduled the heart-pumping cool progressive Pearl Jam meets Jerry Cantrell meets old Soundgarden style on Cracks In The Pavement, Third-Day-To-Forever, Barrel or the infamous Leave My Soul to Rest are brilliant and amazing calculated by bravery and honest lyrics trapped inside the circling fish-net named Modern Culture.


Insane Asylum Keigome (Asphodel 1998)


   Entering and welcome to the realm of mystic Avant-Garde music symphonies of Diamanda Galas; an Anatolian Greek-American female singer of the gloomy days desperations whose forever remains secretly sacred to some of her fans.
   The live recording of Malediction and Prayer - Concert for The Damned probably could given more perspective to anyone who wanted to learn about her long-term eerie sounds and musical works from the entire career since the beginning as well as here everyone will feel the emptiness and drought of joy buried deep but sinful atmosphere like magic conquering the dead air and main stage.
   This live recording shown most of the listeners as well as the audience whose lucky enough to got themselves straight face to face with the legendary medusa of thrilling Chamber music in flesh eventhough mostly tracks recorded here are composed by other musicians but still ever single thing brought to stage and sang as like they were litanies of the damned souls purely would becoming Ms. Galas own collective collections numbers to her catalogs once again.
   The melodramatic piano plays completely amusing and scary with her "fallen goddess" vocals that can stab your heart in instant to the repertoir of blended classic tones and forbidden symphonies over My World is Empty without You, Abel et Cain, Supplica a mia madre, 25 Minutes to go to the depth hellish ritualistic melodies upon iron lady, The Thrill is gone or Death Letter.
   One will get easily threatened after listening to her influental and hypnotizing voice and shall never seeing the beauty dark shape the same again because redemption won't come and the salvation are far from this lot ...


Fourth Heavy Rope Cactus (Last Gang Records 2011)

   Born as Valerie Anne Poxleitner with plenty music talents flown inside her veins as she will now known as Lights (as simple as that) the multi-talented gorgeous singer and young good-looking musician from Canada just stood there on the Pop mainstream music pedestrians like a longtime lost mate for Owl City music that never will stop amazed us by telling stories about life and love in translations especially this releasing of Siberia - a collection of simple mixes of Pop and Soft-Electronic Dubsteps and Ambient Shoegazer which sounded very interesting, attractive and sensual to the ears. Lights playing most of the music-instruments including keytar delighted the laser-line bass beats of her sweet vocals and stylish multicolours that too good to offer (not) to be ignored by music public.
   Let oneself travelling through the white clouds or into the tunnel of hyper-drive music buzz and dreaming about the most beauty of Natural places on Earth or the images of this smart and lovely singer through Where The Fence is Low, Peace Sign, Timing is Everything, Toes and Everybody Breaks a Glass ...

Lovely Softly.


Tank Bride Salute (Liberation Records / Go! Discs 1991)


   Often being mentioned (with a negative explanation) as a Communist lecture, the English song-writer and daily Left Wing activist Stephen William Bragg or Billy Bragg would sometimes felt his movement area were restricted by the British authority during the cold war but it doesn't stopping this man from making free speech to public or writing protesting songs as far as we know in his entire music career. Well-educated and literary smart since the early years of his post-teenage days, Billy Bragg often will making most of the Parliament House Representatives or The Royal Family mad for his non-compromising and lack of conformity while shouts his opinion of injustice through music and to prove it just have a look deeper onto Don't try This At Home; the sixth Urban Folk and string arrangements full of protest made by him and releasing as also a warmth salute to Billy's dad whose passed away of cancer as well as the warning signs in form of songs which confrontates good people to reconsider about things and global issues happening in the world today not with for being passive but spiritually stepping out the miserable lives and become a better men concluded on wiser tracks like Everywhere, Moving The Goalpost, Accident Waiting to Happen that sounded like a karma curse to Capitalism and consumtive folks to the minarets of higher messages on the tribute to philosopher of conceptualism photographer from New Jersey arts Cindy Sherman in Cindy of A Thousand Lives or thus New Wavy attributes cologne critics to Country bigots on You Woke Up My Neighbourhood.
Smart and charismatic with double decker buses full of enemies and haters aren't enough to stop Billy Bragg from singing the truth and his opinions about the globe and the national's controversy progress over cold war interest and other horseshit achievements by killing millions.


Blank Backwards Talk (Island Records 1973)


   One step farther away from his semi-legendary legacy career with Roxy Music by doing his onw thing a solo artist, Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno or simply known as Brian Eno - a complete true artist and musician with talents deeper as Atlantic with a very good touch on production, song-written, mixer, composer and multi-instrumentalist; on this debut only introduced himself as Eno releasing Here Comes The Warm Jets, a collective composed record of artistic sounds and music as complete as the combinations of King Crimson, Hawkwind, New Wave to Glam Rock in great taste of European electro-KrautPop which clearly would be another legendary album in musical history. This artistic half-artificial and controversial record armed with plenty various noises and synths but also having the live music elements as well promising a Power-Pop attacks like Cindy Tells Me or The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch and the mechanical monotonous beats to dance crazy for in Needles in the Camel's eye that remarkably should reminding some of the spectators who about to hear the famous young Bowie-sque vocals like in goosebumps.
Brian Eno got all the help he needs from numbers of guitarist such as Robert Fripp and Phil Manzanera to the keyboardist Andy MacKay and Nick The Koolaids to the more the merrier additonal lists of drummers and musicians listed themselves for this album.

A masterpiece of Art Rock popping up in the middle of Mainstream Music Storage ...


Booshduckdow Contordations (Kung Fu Records 1998)


   Should the band thanking Tony hawk's Underground skateboard games for having them to fill up the soundtracks or it is just another coincidence that Riverside, CA lucky enough to have this short-living product of Pop Punk Ska-core unit like Assorted Jelly Beans ? Lesser known as a band but infamous for their cover albums, band's names and more indie fluctuationed merchandise; erupts since their quietly releasing the second album What's Really Going On ? like questioning the situational conditions sucked up music scene on California at that time where too many posers getting famous or the overloaded Ska-Punk generations selling their ass-out lower than hookers price-tag to the music company and other issues like environmental or broken home stories and other not so sweet as candy topic. Consisting as an addition to the last scenester "jumps the train" at that time; the two Ricky (Boyer and Falomir) with guitarist Wylie Johnson just going the flow waves playing their music which based on the hybrid mixes between The Vandals and Operation Ivy in Indie mode - putting their songs of freedom of ideas and protest deploying the ears and the air surrounds like small firecrackers as you might listening to them on Juttered, Loadie Mission, Dead Neighbors to Parents.

   Surely, one can catch the glimpse of warmth welcome breeze off the West Coast oceanway side (in a smart-nasty Punkrock salute).

What's Really Going On:

Teacher Sacred Hour (Jet Records 1982)

   Not too overseen band from Birmingham but producing some successful albums like this one - the third efforts from Magnum might a bit sounded like a reflection of Kansas because of the producer Jeff Glixmann hands which indefinitely handling the mixed sounds a little too sloppy as he making this Melodic Rock sounds familiar to adopts US Rock Style. Used to be called The Spirit; the (later) Chase The Dragon probably showing the essence of favorable theme chosen by the band themselves as a semi-fanatics of any Tolkien works or just commncing the ideas of magicland and mediaeval dragons story to the music but the lyrics would be enough to be called modern with some Brian May's licks on here and there lifting the five-piece members: Kex Gorin, Mark Stanway, Wally Lowe, vocalist Bob Catley and the founder of this group guitarist Tony Clarkin by names but only around UK and such. More essential good tracks highlighted inside this record that will amaze you and the rest of the patience listeners like On the Edge of the World, Walking The Straight Line or Soldier of the line - with a great combinations of heavy licks, vocalization harmonies and solos including the keyboards effects which would lullabying one to fell asleep over it.
