Dennis DeYoung - And the music of Styx

Dennis Deyoung brought his band to Los Angeles to record a concert for AXS-TV. Styx is the legendary rock band from Chicago which has been very famous in the 70’s and the 80’s. However you can’t call them one of my favorite bands. Dennis Deyoung was the vocalist, keyboard maestro and genius behind some of their hits. Now he is playing with young musicians and he is covering Styx! For me it doesn’t work! As we expect from a live album, the classics are all here! “Grand Illusion”, “Lady”, “Mr.

Audrey Horne

Audrey Horne’ return with their new album just over a year since the highly enjoyable ‘Youngblood’. Most of the band members are also in death/black metal bands, yet Audrey Horne is more a homage to the classic rock of bands like ‘Van Halen, Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden’.

Romy Conzen

You know, it's amazing how, even in a small country like our own little Belgium, some albums can be laying around in stores for quite a while, before the media pick up on it. This very record came to our editor-in-chief through the help of a friend, whom felt the need to help out the artist somewhat. Well, let's look at what's in store here, shall we?

Pet The Preacher

Now this is a great release, PET THE TEACHER newest release is as far as I am concerned one of the first highlights of 2014.

Despite having some well known musicians in their ranks, this new project started by unknown guitarist Jeremy Brunner, and having enlisted the aid of Andy Johns for the production, I’m afraid this album is rather disappointing.
