RockmusicRaider - Jo Below - No Control - EP Cover

Spring’s coming (we hope) and I went searching for some California feel-good music. You know, that snazzy piece of rock that will make you pull down the soft-top, so that the hot sun can burn the skin off your ass. To cruise North along the bars of Malibu on your way to the beach, with surfboards, and what have you.

So, here Jo Below‘s No Control hit me with their carefree brand of rock ‘n’ roll that comes with the slightly smoky voice of Johanna Kari. Only, they’re not from Californian Pacific Coast, but from – Finland of … [...] Click to raid more!

Betonkrebs by Zeit, a furious lament!

RockmusicRaider - Zeit - Betonkrebs - EP Cover

Zeit are very angry, furious actually. That’s why they decided to slam an EP onto the music market that is – for now – seriously hampered by the current pandemic. And indeed, they hail from Germany where the restrictions are especially harsh these days.

But – wait a minute – they don’t lament the current virus, other people are already doing this ad nauseam. Instead, they got us a dirge for the useless Year of the Dark Lord 2020. About all those many other dumb issues that happened then and kinda disappeared under the radar of things.

So, I guess that many metallists got fed up and used other genres to describe things better. Like Gothic Metal for the aforementioned band.

Yet, I reckon that these people never heard of Blunderbuss and their 2016 piece Resurrection. Even if this outfit sports a style that is bemoaned by many to be all bad, playing towards the somewhat … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Sleepless - Blood Libel - EP Cover

What happens when a bunch of Death Metal dudes state that they want to give Heavy Metal a try? Well, Blood Libel happens.

In truth, this is one blurb that kinda missed our review pipe when it hit the world stage already earlier this month. But once their piece finally roared out of the mighty RMR music machine, we were sold.

Because you won’t get yer usual Heavy Metal with its signature screams that are often as fake as many of them orgasms out there. Instead, you’ll get a Sabbath-esque demolition team on steroids boring down on you. Ominous … [...] Click to raid more!
