RockmusicRaider - Los Disidentes Del Sucio Motel - Polaris - Album Cover

We currently need (want) two things on this blog. First, our search sonar is on to bands that are nobody’s bitch. Away from those outfits that cling to the narrowest of styles, and then go ahead and defend it as if their life depended on it.

And then, we need more rock, believe it or not. Lately, the focus has been way too much on the brethren of the metallic underbelly of that mighty rocky beast.

And this means that bands with that kind of firepower are far and few between. But the RMR deck crew here does have … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Wheel - Preserved in Time - Album Cover

Boy, there’s some wheeler-dealer stuff going on. We just heard some proggy news about Wheel from Finland, which didn’t quite make it onto our review pipe yet.

But suddenly, we get those doomy vibes from Germany. And indeed, we got ourselves yet another Wheel on the menu. One with that distinct early Doom Metal flavor. And they ain’t even coming from the US. And that’s almost heresy these days.

Do you know why I kinda stopped looking at Khemmis and – for sure – Pallbearer? They’re great musicians, sure. But somehow, they never quite hit the vibe of … [...] Click to raid more!
