Michael Schenker – “Michael Schenker Fest ‘Live’ Tokyo”

Michael Schenker – “Michael Schenker Fest ‘Live’ Tokyo” 2CD / DVD (inakustik) A legendary virtuoso guitarist who started his career aged just 15 years old when he recorded his first album with the Scorpions, Michael Schenker went onto a stellar career in UFO then later establishing his own namesake band, MSG. When it came out in 1982, “One Night At Budokan” became a legendary double live album, cementing this revered status not in Japan, where he trod in the hallowed footsteps as a guitar god, but also internationally as a major headliner.

King of Asgard – “:taudr:”

King of Asgard – “:taudr:” (Trollmusic) Having been signed to Metal Blade since 2010, King of Asgard have been quiet over the last few years.

At one point residents of South London’s posher (lol) neighborhoods in Tooting Bec, these guys came from the cold, bleak Baltic nation of Finland, which apart from vodka, nobody knew jack about. Still, it was a different matter with Hanoi Rocks. Gifted with one of the most beautiful front men in Mike Monroe and son of Johnny Thunders guitarist Andy McCoy, … Continue reading

Rotten Mind – “Rotten Mind”

Rotten Mind – “Rotten Mind” (Lövely Records) Swedish punk – hmmm, that’s gotta be a new one fer me. Still, with the undoubted punk influences in their legendary death metal scene, I had to give Rotten Mind a listen and wow, make that another hit for Sweden! Despite their deranged name and regurgitated press musings of melancholy and darkness these guys came across as jovial as a Christmas tree! Mixing the punkerola of 70s UK bands like The Damned and Buzzcocks along with poppy adolescent vocals and rockabilly guitar, there’s plenty of frantic beats here but equally tons of catchy … Continue reading
