Tyketto - Reach

Tyketto - Reach
Timing is everything. As cliché as that sounds, it’s true. Looking back on the 80s it’s harder to describe the rise and eventual fall of hair bands and the “copycat” syndrome. Almost any successful band had 2 things happen; the “brand” made a ton of money and the industry went into overdrive to do it again with another band. You like Night Ranger, we’re going to give you more Night Ranger, so to speak. But as a famous author once wrote – Nothing gold can stay. It was 1987 and in many ways, 80s music was at its climax and bands were being pushed out as quickly as they could be found. Howev...

The Twisted One Returns

The Twisted One Returns
I've been working with RenegadeRadio.net now for a bit over 9 years now, in one form or another. I Originally started out Wednesday afternoons back in the summer of 2007, as I was working a 3rd shift job and that seemed like primetime for me.. "Grave Disorder" it was called. Had a decent run, but then had to step away for personal reasons (Because, Life happens.)Came back and started again 12-25-2009. Decided to take over Friday nights.

Heaven Below - Good Morning Apocalypse

Heaven Below - Good Morning Apocalypse

Concept albums are far from new. Most fall short of any individual goal to tell a story more so than just put out an album loosely tied together with the "concept" of a story that doesn't really get told in the album. The most notable examples of these I can remember would include Styx with Mr Roboto and KISS with their hidden gem, The Elder. Now, the list of successful concept albums grows in ranks as Heaven Below releases "Good Morning, Apocalypse" and the story of Dr Faust’s (inspired by the German legend of Faust) dealings with the devil in his own struggle with life. I do s...

falling in love with violet janine

falling in love with violet janine

One of the best things about music is it lets you fall. in this case with a new release from Swedish rockers Violet Janine (ja-nine) you're going to fall in love. Lead singer Janine Nyman can certainly hold her own and her soulful edge comes through with emotions she's not even trying to hide. As you make your way though Between Red and Blue you are going to fall in love. time and time again. There are times I want to save the best songs for last but this release makes choosing such things a certain 1st world problem. But hey, the struggle here is real and in the end you're going to decla...

Lzzy and Lita and Dorothy, Oh My!

Lzzy and Lita and Dorothy, Oh My!
Yes, friends, it was girl’s night out last Thursday at Gas Monkey Live and it frickin rocked!  And I’m not referring to free drinks after 5pm for all the ladies at the bar (although that would have been a nice bonus).  Better yet, I am referring to the fact that last Thursday night was nothing but kick ass female fronted bands the entire evening.  Now that’s something to buy a girl a drink for!  Why? Because even in this day and age, you don’t see a line up like this very often, in particular the rock and metal genres.  Historically, women have taken a back seat to men...
