Old’n’Tasty Records @ RockmusicRaider – Vol. I

RockmusicRaider - Old n Tasty - Old Rock and Metal of all kindsDid you know that RockmusicRaider covered many old(er) Rock and Metal records over time? No? We did. And will continue – as time allows – to add more to this specific endeavour.

The performance of bands in the ’70s and ’80s brought about some absolute classics that many enjoy to this day. Be it now in a Progressive Rock arena or the early stages of Heavy Metal or any other sub-genre for that matter. All of these bands contributed to the musical soundscape we find ourselves in today.

And to top all this, whilst all of the original band members start to get kinda old, many of them are still alive and kicking.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Black Sabbath – Heaven And Hell (1980) – Review

Apple Music Badge – Buy with Amazon!

Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell Album CoverAt just some 40 minutes of air-time and a meager 8 tracks, with a new front man the band just hired off The Rainbow bar on the Sunset Strip in L.A., a record really needed to be good. The classic and 9th studio album Heaven and Hell from Black Sabbath will qualify – to an extent. And yes, to an extent only. ‘Tis not all great and shiny disco lights. Not all tracks will really open heaven’s gates on this disk. But be this as it may, there definitely is improvement on this album, and this on several fronts at once. But more to that later.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

AC/DC – Back in Black (1980) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - ACDC - Back in Black - Album CoverOkay, I get it – we write the Year of the Lord 2014 and this AC/DC record is so old it should already have turned to dust. Along with everything else that lived back then. Right? But you know what? Back in Black did not descend into oblivion. And many of them bands are still present today. The ones that rocked through music halls already way back in time. Okay, admittedly a bit more worn out they are indeed these days and not so fresh anymore, but still commanding sizable audiences.

And I do agree that the only thing they really know how to do (and constantly deliver) is good, old, solid Hard Rock (some call it Heavy Metal and I tend to agree) and they hardly changed over the years.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
