RockmusicRaider’s Intermittent Best of… Tome I – The first few Months!

cool-guitarWell, hells bells! This was quite a run from no website a few months ago to a blog that starts to pay off to some very, very limited fame. Still going strong, writing reviews left, right and center – investing what little time my already busy schedule leaves me.

The first review that started me off was ‘Hydra‘ from Within Temptation – frankly not the best these guys ever produced – a friggin’ attempt to get into mainstream. A pity if you think that they produced stellar stuff before, real pearls like ‘Enter‘ or ‘The Silent Force’, which still send shivers down my spine for some of them tracks in there.Got hooked?

Black Sabbath – 13 (2013) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Black Sabbath - 13 - Album CoverHa! They STILL can do it! The grumpy old men from Black Sabbath in the original formation. Minus the drummer, I would hasten to add. Because it looks like Bill Ward had issues with a contract, a written contract to be precise. Something he could sign – or more the lack thereof. And he of all people should know that contracts with the devil are not signed. Or then only in blood.

Now, Black Sabbath‘s latest, but hopefully not last album 13 hits us with full force. It comes indeed across as much more powerful, louder and sinister than the other albums ever were. 

13 feels like a continuation of the self-titled very first record Black Sabbath the band produced in 1970.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
