(Tin Idol Production))

With a hard rock sound laced with progressive overtones, the debut outing, 'Burial Grounds' from Honolulu, Hawaii based rockers, HereAfter, is a recording any rock music fan will want to experience. The band is comprised of, Ethan Foxx on vocals and keyboards, Jimmy Caterine on guitars and keyboards, Darren Soliven on bass and Gerard K. Gonsalves on drums. Together this group of talented musicians have created a really powerful sound, not exactly "heavy" but just powerful in the sense that the guitar and the vocals greatly impacted me. You have to hear this recording at maximum volume to really appreciate it, it gets you right in that "fight/I wont take sh#t from you mood." There's also the variety of song structure for each track, with most of the tracks being different from the others. Highlighted by tracks like, "Human Condition Critical", "the riff intense, "Everybody's Broken", "Rebel Spirit", and "War Machine". As a fan of rock music, I dig being introduced to newer bands with a great sound and feel to them. HereAfter is one such band. Great lyrics, great music. HereAfter are the real deal and definitely worth checking out. - Tony @ The Dedicated Rocker Society

REVOLUTION HIGHWAY  by Revolution Highway
(Grooveyard Records)

First impressions are lasting ones and the self titled debut release from Revolution Highway is one that will definitely leave a lasting one! Comprised of,  David Fefolt (Fifth Angel/Masi) on vocals, guitar savant, Stavros Papadopoulos (Super Vintage/Universal Hippies) on guitars and the solid rhythm section of bassist John Christopoulos and drummer Chris "Rock Machine" Lagios. Revolution Highway serve up a heavy dose of Blues infused rock that will get your adrenaline pumping in no time flat! This is a band that knows what us rock music fans want and they deliver the goods ten fold! From the six string rattlesnake rocker "Renegade" that opens the album to other smoking numbers like, "Young And Wild", "Streets  Of Hollywood", "I Need Your Love"  and "Lose You Again". Huge riffs, heavy bass, loud drums, killer vocals and just great songs. This is as good a recording as any that you will experience. The bottom end is fantastic throughout the mix, Stavros Papadopoulos' guitar work is stellar and shows why this guy is a six string samurai of the highest order. Last, but not least are David Fefolt's vocals. He simply reels you in with a swagger and attitude that doesn't let go. The bottom line here is Revolution Highway is a great band and warrants a listen by any rock music fan. You'llf ind yourself wanting to listen to this album over and over again. - Tony @ The Dedicated Rocker Society
