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...

Thormesis – Trümmerfarben (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Thormesis - Trümmerfarben - Album CoverA somewhat subtle hype was discernible lately in the closed confines of the Black Metal fan crowd. Like the odours of a black mass on the breeze, wafting through the morbid realms of a lonesome and foggy cemetery. A subtle wave of expectation that went on for a while. But now they are here: After some two years of wait, the German band Thormesis released their newest and fifth full length album Trümmerfarben. Of course, expectations were high after their last offering Freier Wille – Freier Geist. This album got pretty high marks throughout the board. And rightly so: A bit rougher around the edges, the latter does indeed generate a certain wow-effect right from the get go.Got hooked?

Ghost Avenue – Impact (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Ghost Avenue - Impact - Album CoverThis sounds like homecoming, folks. Good, soothing old Heavy Metal with no holds barred. The metal equivalent of motherhood, apple pie and the flag. Listening to this sound gives you this warm, cozy feeling of past good times, doesn’t it? Well, maybe not, if you are not old enough to remember.

This latest offering of Ghost Avenue harkens back to the times, when the ’80s were deliriously high on NWoBHM and all its bands. Many of them are still around, alive and kickin’ to this day. Well, then again not quite that many anymore, as we just saw a few important departures in 2016. 

This specific horde of Norwegian metallers made us wait almost four long years to finally inject their third full length album Impact onto an already saturated marketplace.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
