Top Female Vocalists at RMR - Female Rock Concert Picture

Over the years we covered a whole bunch of female interpreters that more or less prominently appeared on the RockmusicRaider blog at some point in time. And this at a rate of some 25% of all reviews done to date.

Now, let’s be clear.

There will be no quota for anything on this blog, so don’t get your hopes up. We’re not going down sillyroad and die the painful death of fucking political correctness. Nor will there be any single-minded preference towards any type of interpreter on the RockmusicRaider blog.

We will – however – cover whoever in the world … [...] Click to raid more!

Amon Amarth – Berserker (2019) – Review

      RockmusicRaider - Spotify Logo

RockmusicRaider - Amon Amarth - Berserker - Album Cover Sometimes things just fit. At the time of the release of Berserker, Amon Amarth‘s 2019 epic, I was just reading the newest novel of Bernard Cornwell’s Viking series.

A perfect backdrop to a great story, whilst Johan Hegg growls about the English growing confused when faced with the berserkers of the Norse invaders. Back in time, way back in time.

Arch Enemy – Will To Power (2017) – Review

      RockmusicRaider - Spotify Logo

RockmusicRaider Review - Arch Enemy - Will To Power - Album Cover I confess. Sometimes I do look into the opinions other reviewers express. Not so much to gain specific word-by-word insight, but more to get a general drift of a record.

Usually the sum of all parts gives you a pretty good idea where an album resides. It is a bit like Trip Advisor, where you get the gist of things from the overall rating. But not from the detailed wording of endless badly written and subjective comments.

For any record you will always find the fan boys and girls schmoozing the audience in glowing, sugary colors on the beauty of [...] Click to raid more!
