RockmusicRaider Video - Dirty Sound Magnet - Social Media Boy The RMR deck crew surely loves it, when bands create new or newish content. Those who do not only brush up on stuff other guys did, and then call it their own.

RockmusicRaider Review - Steven Wilson - To The Bone - Album Cover

Debate raged around the RMR offices. It was all about an outrageous non-metal album floating out there in the not-so-rocky universe and covered in brightly colored stars. And you heard the hype, right? Don’t we just all love conspiracy theories? Mysteries yet unsolved and deliciously unsolvable?
