Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014 29.07

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››
Amaranthe - American Beauty Car Show, Haapsalu Episcopal Castle, Haapsalu, Estonia, 19.07.2014 28.07

Haapsalu is a small and beautiful Estonian resort town by the sea. Each July its quiet is disturbed by an invasion of owners and admirers of the American car industry. Shining cars, roaring engines, burning rubber, cruising, and a drag race on the airfield strip - American Beauty Car Show has got it all. If you're into all that, it's the place to be. Naturally, this also calls for musical entertainment of varied sorts, which somehow managed to grab my attention for the first time with only one name - Amaranthe. Just because I happen to like them.

Annihilator - All For You (2004)

I wonder how many times Jeff Waters is going to fool around with the line up of Annihilator until he finds the one (no pun intended)... This time around he got hold of a young singer called Dave Padden - THE singer of Annihilator in Waters's own words - and of drummer Mike Mangini (Extreme, Steve Vai) to form, as always, the best band he ever played in (or so he said). The result is... well, let's put it mildly, special. I hated this album when I first heard it, and more or less hated it... (by Deadsoulman)   Read more ››
