URIAH HEEP, Outsider Album.

Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep all had become top bands in the early 1970s – and each was one of  the so called “Big 4” at the time. Myself as a child born of the 1960’s, I’ve had the pleasure to grow up with these groups and watch …

Night Ranger- High Road

Reunions are a fickle beast. Sometimes they work, sometimes they are a callous attempt to make some money and sometimes they are initially a response to a rose tinted view of the past but turn out to be better than before. Europe, Journey and Accept are three names that have …

It’s an unwritten rule that reviewers are not supposed to talk personally or write in the same mien, but I am sure our dear PM readers will indulge this writer in a touch of reminisence… I remember well the first time I heard Tesla:  I was just over a hear …

Winger are one of the few bands from the ‘big hair’ era of the late 1980s/early 1990s to have survived not only with their reputation still intact but also their integrity in terms of their viability as a relevant and vibrant rock act in the second decade of the 21st …

Pretty Maids - Louder Than Ever Artwork

.@planetmosh reviews the new album from Pretty Maids, out now on @FrontiersRec Thirty years into their stop-start career, this 14th album from Pretty Maids is something of an amalgam, being as it is a combination of re-recorded tracks and four new songs.

De La Cruz – Street Level

It may be 2013, and they may hail from the Gold Coast of Australia, but De La Cruz look and sound just like they’ve stepped out of a strip bar somewhere off LA’s Sunset Boulevard sometime back in the mid- to late-80s. ‘Street Level’ is very much from the Ratt …

W.E.T. – ‘Rise Up’

Normally, I avoid so-called “supergroups” with a wider berth than I would give to a black rat diagnosed with carrying the bubonic plaque… in my book, most of them can be described as something else beginning with ‘s’ and rhyming with ‘height’! However, a couple of years ago, the debut …

Crashdïet – ‘The Savage Playground’

It would be very easy to dismiss Crashdïet as yet another Swedish sleaze metal outfit, and indeed they have been very much at the forefront of the revival in that regard. However, personally, I’ve always found them to be more appealing than, certainly, the awful Reckless Love or their poppier …

Dokken – ‘Broken Bones’

I have to admit it – I’m a child of the Eighties. I mean that in that is when I got into metal: it was the formative years of that historic decade in rock history that, as a lanky-haired rebellious private school-attending teenager that I first discovered bands such as …

Million Dollar Reload – Empire Music Hall, Belfast, August 9 2012

It’s always great to see a local venue rammed to the rafters on a week night – and even more satisfying when it’s in support of some of the best in local talent, and not because it’s some visiting ‘big name’ band. That’s why this particular night starts off on …
