SHOCK and AWE
By Simon Reynolds
Published by Dey St books/HarperCollins



     Mr Reynolds takes us through the magical glam rock period of the 70’s and delivers a no holds barred exquisite contemplation and guidebook to the stars that shaped the genre. Those same stars and flamboyant personalites are examined to the fullest within his SHOCK and AWE book. For this reader, the book weaves a clearer insight into the lives and inner workings of people like, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, And Alice Cooper, among others. You are transported to this incredibly flashy and prolific time period, brief as it was, and leave with a thorough understanding of what made these artists tick. Excellent job Mr. Reynolds. Fans of the genre of 70’s Glam rock should have this book on their coffee table as a reference guide to a golden, glittery age gone by.

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT

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. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Beast In Black Beserker Album Review

Beast In Black
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.

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…
