TOP ROCK CDs @ The Dedicated Rocker Society / FEBRUARY 2015
Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker debut release has a great, upbeat, rock n' roll energy and spirit, and is incredibly fun to listen to. It's a shame more modern rock bands don't take this approach. It seems like having fun isn't allowed anymore in mainstream rock. If you are a fan of the "Classic Rock" vibe done up 70's style then look no further.
Farmikos' debut release is a juggernaut of the some of the best heavy metal/hard rock captured on record. Farmikos is addicting- hear it once, you enjoy it-listen to it any more than that and your hooked.
'You Owe Nothing' is the kind of album you'd expect to hear from a side project of seasoned veterans. It's a very strong, totally captivating slab of old school rock n' roll that is unlikely to disappoint fans of the classic rock sound.
'A Conspiracy Of Stars 'going to put UFO back on the map, so to speak, and return them to their earlier, heavier sound from the Schenker days? Not quite, but this is definitely the best Vinnie Moore-era record to date.
Jeff Scott Soto – one of today's premier Rock frontmen and vocalists – and a union of hotshot young musicians bring you a slamming blend of melody and muscle in some of the freshest power metal to surface in years present. Together they are SOTO, and their debut album “Inside The Vertigo” will blow your mind away.
'Wonder Days' by Thunder is a highly recommended album for fans of classic well-crafted British rock 'n' roll, although inevitably overshadowed by the near perfect 'Backstreet Symphony',
If you like hard rock with great vocals, killer bottom end, and groove after killer groove , look no further, this is what Devil's Train bring to the table. guitar driven, straight ahead balls to the wall hard rock, look no further. 'II' by Devil's Train has what you crave in spades!!
Ten is still in top form, and still the most underrated band in the history of AOR, delivering a level of class, lyrical sophistication and melodic sense that is head and shoulders above any other band of their generation. Hands down! 'Albion' is amongst Gary Hughes' best works
The Foundry have released an album that is loaded with well thought out change ups, crushing grooves that have ton's of texture & melodic chorus lines & very original music. Straight-up balls-out rock and roll, this is required listening.
If you have been looking for a new band that plays rock music with swagger and one hell of attitude, Motor Sister will be your favorite band.
From the Irish-tinged rock of “Soldierstown” to the balls-out twin guitar riffing of “Sex Guns & Gasoline”. From the dirty groove of “You Little Liar” to the acoustic “Blindsided”, this is a band coming of age. “The Killer Instinct” will see Black Star Riders cement their place as one of the most exciting contemporary rock acts
REVOLUTION SAINTS' music is played with a heart and soul and that highlights the passion and the enthusiasm of three of the best rock and all-around musicians in the game today.
I'm a Richie Kotzen fan - plain and simple. The guy has been putting out the highest quality music. If his name is written on it, it's going to be good.
