Album Reviews

There are so many emotions going through the songs from The New Roses, and most of it is determined by the first guitar note that you hear. Maybe that’s why this album is called ‘Sweet Poison’; because the same memory can make you smile, tear up, or both at the same time. That’s what makes me exited every time this band releases a new album; You know you’re going to be in for something that makes you get a smile on your face. Released via Napalm Records!

The Germans of J.B.O. are back to lighten up the party with their brand new party-metal album ‘Planet Pink’!

This is a really cool heavy metal/ rock ‘n roll album by Gygax. It has different vibes to it. There is a very active solo guitar, which sounds cool, but can be a bit too much as well.

Good ol’ Rock ’N Roll power, but nothing you haven’t heard before.

Pop this disc in the car radio, start driving and listen to what is half an hour of the perfect roadtrip music!

We truly believe we got to experience the new prince of modern rock on his rise to kingdom when we got to go to his Kulttuuritalo Helsinki stop on the “Life on Mars Europe tour”!
