TRAGEDIAN Album Review

     Submitted for your metal approval. TRAGEDIAN, UNHOLY DIVINE   The Devil Calls You ….Kicking off the third installment of TRAGEDIAN'S brand of German power metal is a song worthy of the Gods. Full shred speed ahead on this one. Vocals are on point as the band tears through this epic power metal masterpiece. This is the band to watch from Germany in 2018 and beyond. Tracks like Dullahan and Revelation continue with the blitzkrieg assault of inescapable sonic perfection. Revelation has a distinctive Dragonforce feel. Over the Edge features a cameo solo by none other than master HELLOWEEN guitarist, KAI HANSEN (Gamma Ray). The song sounds like it belongs on a classic HELLOWEEN album. No joke it is that good.  One of the stand out tracks on the album. Flyaway and Shadow of the Moon are also memorable songs. The lead on Shadow of the Moon is by far one of Gabriel's best. Pure prolific power meets perfection. Spectres and Chasing a Dream are killer comp

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 industr


L.A.GUNS is an American Iconic hard rock band That always delivers. This latest release does not disappoint. If you thought they could not return to that first album sound then you are sadly mistaken. These songs sound a lot like they belong on that first album. This is one hell of a kick ass testament to the staying power of American rock and roll. This album, this band, this is what we need in these troubling times. This is the sound track for a new party. A new America. Hard rock is dangerous and fun at the same time and L.A. GUNS delivers. Get this album!!!!! 10/10 wolf howls CRY OF THE WOLF magazine As the revival of the classic ‘80s hard rock and heavy metal scene continues unabated here in the 21st century, one reunion has been at the top of the wish list of many a fan for a long time: the songwriting combination of Tracii Guns and Philip Lewis under the L.A. Guns banner. What once seemed like a distant memory with no hope of returning has now

Pink Cream 69 Headstrong review

Pink Cream 69 is a phenomal hard rock band that conveys all the spirit of the hard rocking 80’s with the modern production values that are second to none. Every song is a power house and master class in sonic perfection. This is true rock and roll at its pinnacle. The musicianship is second to none. Favorite tracks here at the office are: “ WE BOW TO NONE “ MAN OF SORROWS” “ BLOODSUCKER” Hands down a front runner for album of the year here at the CRY OF THE WOLF studios. You must get this album. And as a bonus there is a live disc included. The live songs are equally impressive. Few bands can transfer from studio to stage so easily. This band does it all.
