RockmusicRaider Review - Morass of Molasses - These Paths We Tread - Album CoverSometimes it feels good to drown your sorrows in stoner-esque fuzziness. Remembering times that can only be fathomed by those old enough to recall the sounds, smells and sticky feeling of sweaty underground music halls. Distorted goodness served on the holy platter of wah-wah in all its bluesy glory. This is soul healing remembrance indeed. From Zep to Black Sabbath and back we heard it all, now didn’t we? The gods of substance-induced wailing be praised. And many an old band has been down that very well-travelled road already.

Now, the good thing is that many new bands attempt to take that road still. The bad – by contrast – is the need to succeed in a genre that is pretty much sucked dry already.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Dio – Lock Up The Wolves (1990) – Review

Apple Music Badge – Bu with Amazon!

RockumsicRaider Review - Dio - Lock Up The Wolves - Album CoverOkay, when looking through the older records that are living in the confines of this vast collection of mine, I stumbled across Dio (the one with the spider that came along). Good, old and heartwarming Heavy Metal. One of my favorite suppliers of good, crunchy and relaxing Night Music. Long time no hear, by the way, as I was much concentrating on the new age metal stuff that keeps on getting thrown at us.

Founded by Ronnie James Dio after his departure from Black Sabbath (yes, the Ozzy, Tony and Geezer one) in 1982 together with Vinnie Appice, they went on to build a remarkable career with their own outfit called Dio.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Krokus – Dirty Dynamite (2013) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Dirty Dynamite - Album CoverHoly Momma! Just reviewed the newest 2014 AC/DC record. I was kind of looking for some electrical charge in there (not even supercharge, mind you) and not finding it. And here I start on my newest copy from the Swiss Band Krokus and their 2013 album Dirty Dynamite and – wham – I am clinging to the wall, being hurled there by some stellar Metal style Hard Rock. Slam – Bang!! Just wanted to have a little midnight music kind of thing. And now this! This is just rockingfuckinggood!!

And this is what was expected from the AC/DC soldiers for their somewhat wrecked 2014 record. Yet here I get it from good old ‘Krokus‘ – done and demonstrated already one year earlier.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
