JACK BRUCE & ROBIN TROWER (Seven Moons) CD

Jun/15/2012

Originally released in 2008 via Floating World Records, 'Seven Moons' is not the first collaboration between these two influential musicians and hopefully not the last. By the way, I hope there is no need to introduce Jack Bruce and Robin Trower to you...

JOHNFISH SPARKLE (Flow) CD

Feb/28/2012

JOHNFISH SPARKLE come from Italy and this is their second album, released by Transubstans Records in 2011. For me it's the first record I've heard from JOHNFISH SPARKLE, and it's definitely an ambitious work that's diverse and eclectic for the genre...

JEREMY IRONS & THE RATGANG MALIBUS (Bloom) CD

Aug/08/2011

Behind the strange band name hides one of the best 1960's/1970's retro rock bands of current times. Instead of burying the listener under a wall of heavy fuzzy riffs, Sweden's JEREMY IRONS & THE RATGANG MALIBUS place greater value on well elaborated arrangements, which results in eight tasteful songs...

JPT SCARE BAND (Acid Blues Is The White Man's Burden)

Oct/11/2010

Wow! Within a short period of time, it is once again time to write another review about a new JPT SCARE BAND album. Well, it is not the case that I like to complain about this situation...

JPT SCARE BAND (Rumdum Daddy) CD

Sep/18/2010

In 2009, two years after the release of their latest album 'Jamm Vapour', JPT SCARE BAND return with a new record and show the world again that they haven't lost their magic after almost forty years. As in the case of 'Jamm Vapour', their heavy acid rock is, today, not quite as wild and uninhibited as it was in the mid-1970's, but that does not mean that the music has become stale...

JPT SCARE BAND (Sleeping Sickness) CD

Aug/27/2010

JPT SCARE BAND is definitely a well-known name among many aficionados of obscure or unknown heavy rock bands from the 1970's. Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, the power trio has developed a heavy sound during the mid-1970's that was dominated by improvisation and long monster jams...

JAMESON RAID (Just As The Dust Had Settled) CD

Aug/02/2010

It's quite amazing to see how much unknown bands from the NWOBHM period have been unearthed by Shadow Kingdom Records. And the best part of it all is that these bands really do deserve it...

JEX THOTH (Witness) MCD

May/10/2010

Up until now, JEX THOTH have been very busy in 2010. A few weeks ago, the band finished their first European tour, including an appearance at Doom Shall Rise VIII and two shows at Roadburn...

JOE HASSELVANDER (Road Kill/Lady-Killer) CD

Mar/15/2009

I don't think Joe Hasselvander needs an introduction. The time he spent with Death Row/Pentagram is well-known among all Doom Metal fans, but he also was a long-term member in Raven and played together with countless bands like Blue Cheer, Cathedral, Phantom Lord, Black Manta and many more...

JEX THOTH (s/t) CD

Jun/06/2008

Everybody should know by now, that this band issued their first release under the monicker TOTEM, so I don't have to mention it. Now in the year 2008 the long-anticipated album is finally out, and again it has been released by I Hate Records...
