Too many great albums, so little time…

Habits by Neon Trees - recently purchased

I have recently purchased a number of rock albums which I plan to review in the next few weeks.  There are so many great rock bands at the moment.  BCC, Avenged Sevenfold, Bonafide, Million $ Reload to name a few, many classic rock bands still going strong – AC/DC, Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple.  Plus many bands making comebacks like Def Leppard, Mr Big and Warrant.

But, the most fascinating aspect of the rock industry at the moment is the emergence of a number of great bands who are re-inventing the wheel.

So, I have purchased Habits by Neon Trees, We Stitch These Wounds by the Black Veil Brides, The Heart of Everything by Within Temptation, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by Black Stone Cherry and American Slang by The Gaslight Anthem, which I do plan to review – so keep checking back!

It’s going to be a fun few weeks, I can’t wait….

  1. Some big names from the past, not too familiar with the ‘newer’ names. Got any Gamma Ray? Iced Earth? I’m quite interested to hear your thoughts on Black County Communion if you come across it.

    • I haven’t, heard of Gamma Ray but haven’t really got anything of theirs – any good? What genre are we talking about here?

      Have seen BCC live and met Glenn Hughes in the process. Their first album is absolute classic – love it! Plus they were sensational live. BCC2 hasn’t lived up to it if I am being honest – really can’t get into it.

  2. Gamma Ray is a German metal band, and while not Scorpions put up a good fight. I have most of their albums (actually, I think I have them all) and like Iced Earth did an album based on covers from some of the biggies in metal and hard rock. Not up there with many others metal units, but guitar rock is guitar rock, and thats all that matters.
    Being DP’s unofficial “stalker” my favourite line up was in fact MkIII with Glenn Huges, however as good as his voice is, it didn’t fit the DP sound which in part lead to Blackmore’s split. I thought Coverdale had the better voice, in fact thought his voice was better than Gillan’s, but there is a point to everything that happens.
    Trapeze were impressive live, and in fact will give Glenn his dues, I thought some of his singing during Califronia Jam was pretty cool. And his bass playing is impressive!
