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...

Karma Rassa – Talks to Innerself (2016) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Karma Rassa - Talks to Innerself - Album CoverIt sometimes seems as if we preferred the heavy, blackened thumping of any extreme #metal flavor throughout the RockmusicRaider office landscape. But not so! At times something more laid back is in order. And for that we have gotten the folks navigating in the Progressive and Avantgarde field. 

Now, you usually find the well known bands like Leprous, Steven Wilson or the gang around Arjen Lucassen on your radar. But these guys are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The community is huge. Whilst this is so, you will find loads of them progressive folks out there just djenting away until there is no tomorrow.Got hooked?

Thought Machine: Free music for all. Right?

The Thought Machine - RockmusicRaider - Cool Guitar 2016Succeeding and – indeed – thriving in the music industry is hard, real hard. Many bands out there are trying to eek out a living from the music they create, but very few make a decent amount of cash off their efforts. As in sustaining the operation.

And we are usually not talking bad quality music neither, mind you: Often this is really good stuff coming my way from little known bands. Amazingly good.

The same goes – by the way – with reviewers and other suppliers of added services. So here many of them often find themselves between a rock and a hard place as far as paying the bills is concerned.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Vinyl Hero - Seven Days on a Train - Album Cover

Do you like your Rock served together with a whiskey – well – on the rocks? Down by the bayou, sitting on the porch? Rocking chair and all? New Orleans style?

There ya go! You may want to check out Vinyl Hero. Crunchy, scratchy, somewhat jazzy and bluesy rock seemingly blowing over from times long past. Only, they ain’t near any bayou, they dwell in Montréal up in Canada of all places. But never fear, they crunch about that gravel path of theirs like there is no tomorrow. In a way they sound something like a slower, mid-tempo, bluesy version of Bear Bone Company. Even if that don’t quite cut it.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Intermittent Digest – Tome III

Howdy, fans and friends! Months have passed again way too fast since the last point of the situation (as we say in French) and already it is time to halt the horses again and take stock. The first full year @ RockmusicRaider – 2015 – has passed and we start to approach mid-year 2016. By Loki, things are moving fast and I am not getting younger. So, what happened since Tome II. I can say one thing: Dark, dark is the going, when the going gets tough.

Felt waves of Black or blackened Metal are coming our way. I am amazed – seems to be a sign of the times.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
