RockmusicRaider - Johnny Nocash and The Celtic Outlaws - Burned Alive - Video Cover

The area around Toronto seems to spawn those down’n’dirty rock bands. Halfway stuck between some punky country origins and Southern Heavy Rock, they kinda hack away at their trade as if they actually originate from somewhere further down towards the equator where the warmth dwells.

RMR already featured some of them from the cold shores of Canada. Gotta be the desolate stretches of downtown Toronto that does that to them. But hey, we appreciate it. Because we like to go where the rock is mean and the lyrics rough.

So, here we got Johnny Nocash and The Celtic Outlaws who … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Empty Trail - Lost - Album Cover

Ah, Rick Lambert and his band Empty Trail are on the prowl again. And this is interesting, in a geeky and telepathic kind of way. Just a few short weeks ago I wondered whatever happened to this band I used to cover.

Yet here we are.

After the pretty sturdy Hollow Hearted of 2014 and the less juicy 2016 full-length Bare, they are now back in business. With their newest, yet decidedly very short EP Lost. And we all hope that the title is not meant literally.

True, the RMR deck crew … [...] Click to raid more!
