Every year the Lost in Music Festival brings around 100 Artists to Tampere, showcasing what the Nordic region has to offer of music. And we made it to one of the shows happening at Olympia-Kortteli, featuring rising stars Bloodred Hourglass, One Morning Left and Shereign. It was packed, it was hot and it was a big party!

People at the Backstage venue in Munich were eager to see The Baboon Show play the songs of their new album ‘God Bless You All’ live, and we were not disappointed! What an energetic punk and rock ‘n’ roll show was that! Support came from the equally killer Spiders, both bands you need to go see live whenever you can!

In the last hot days of this year’s summer, the H.E.A.T & Eclipse Co-Headliner Tour 2023 entered the stage at the ‘Im Wizemann’ in Stuttgart, Germany. That was a night of awesome Swedish hard-rock, and both bands delivered to the full expectation of the audience!

In the beginning of the month, the streets of Brussels turned black and the sky was filled with smoke for 3 days in a row: Rammstein was in town, and they held nothing back!

Album Reviews

Blink-182’s new album ‘One More Time’ brings you straightforward power chords, clean vocals and pure punk rock. Varying between different paces and energies, this will be youth sentiment taking you back a couple of decades for many people among us. Released via Columbia Records!

Black Stone Cherry have their eighth studio album, ‘Screamin’ At The Sky’, set for release on Friday 29th September via Mascot Records. After a rather not so hard and heavy styled album, we are happy to say that they’re back with 12 hard, heavy, blues-rock infused songs, the BSC we all fell in love with in the past!

Guess who’s back? Danko Jones are releasing their 11th full-length album ‘Electric Sounds’ this Friday via AFM Records, and deliver an album that’s bound to be a classic in the pantheon of modern rock… the typical Danko Jones sound with a higher speed, and more grooves than before, proving that after over a quarter of a century they still kick ass. Highly recommended!

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!

‘Rise’ is a pretty average album. It’s been executed fine, but it can’t hold up to the pretty high standard The Rasmus has set in the past. The songs are very catchy but not that much more. That “something” that made The Rasmus great is just mostly missing on this record. Out since today via Playground Music, what do you think of it?

Sweden’s finest all-female hard rock band and #1 rock export Thundermother have released their newest album ‘Black and Gold’ via AFM Records and it’s yet again filled with heartfelt and solid rock songs that are primed to take over the world!

Sublime sleazy garage grunge full of swagger, bravado, confidence and great, great tunes.

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

The Florida rockers of Fortune Child are about to release their debut full-length ‘Close to the Sun’! Get ready for some good old-fashioned rock!

Kissing Dynamite is ready to rock again and spread rock music all over the world! With positivity as the key message.
