Without a doubt the amazing  metal band OVERTURES, have crafted an epic release with ARTIFACTS, their third album. Chock of memorable hooks and instant classic metal songs, this is the album to buy above all others. This is progressive power metal at its finest. My personal favorite is the song "artifacts". Just a hands down pure metal powerhouse. There is such a distinctive soundscape coming from these musicians. Look no further than OVERTURES if you need a daily power metal fix. They are one of only a handful of bands to watch for 2017!

QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali.

This is a band that offers you a perfect power metal album. The sound is a sonic picasso of indulgent riffs and screams. This album is full of a master class in perfect power metal. The strength of this band is unmatched. Their lyrics are straight through the heart and the production value is spot on. 

Here is a band that you will need to watch for 2018. They are about to make a huge impact on the metal scene. From the epic "Blind And Frozen" to the juggernaught that is "Beast In Black" every song on this album is simply perfect. This si the metal band of the future. You will get this album. You must get this album.

Babylon A.D. Interview

Babylon A.D. is about to release a new album on Frontiers records.REVOLUTION HIGHWAY will be released on November 10th on Frontiers Records. The Band, still with original members, will be celebrating 30 years. The songs on this album are undeniable and certifiable hard rock gems. The band has never sounded better or tighter. This is pure American rock and roll. Hands down one of the best albums for 2017. Check out their new album.  10/10 wolf howls Below is an earlier interview I did with guitarist Ron Freschi.

Interview Ron Freschi Babylon A.d./ Syrym "We are discussing  recording a new album"
Back in the day when MTV actually played music videos, Babylon A.D. was one of the best hard rock bands to tear across the television screen. The songs were filled with sex and life and just a pure rock and roll sense that few bands actually capture. Their  melodic brand of style was soon eclipsed by grunge and the fickle whims of the recording industry, and the rest is history. But they n…
