Hey, gang, in case anybody cares, I joined the staff of Hardrock Haven as a CD reviewer. You can check out my biography/photo here: Hardrock Haven Staff Bio

 

And read my first review (Salute--"Heart of the Machine") here: Album review

 

I agreed to bang out 3 or 4 reviews per month, so I'll try to post here and let everyone know when my reviews have been uploaded to Hardrock Haven.

 

Now, as you were...which I'm pretty sure for Geoff means naked and surrounded by several large Japanese men with curiously shaved bodies.

Nice one mate. So, the dude in the pic? Uh, who's that creep? HAHA! :lol: Gosh that was a good one.

 

Nice one, mate. You're everywhere these days! Good to see. Good luck with it. Oh, and why do you hate your poor little kitty?

"Why do you hate me, Mark?"

Nice going mate.

 

P.s. Did you get the new SHOWDOWN disc yet? After their last couple of great ones, this newie is pretty weak...

Yeah, I snagged it as soon as it came out. While not quite up to the standards of "Temptation Come my way" or "Back Breaker," I still think it's a pretty darn good metal album, and personally wouldn't rate it as weak. But The Showdown is just one of those bands I really like...something about them clicks with me. I thought the first 3 songs--"The Man Named Hell," "Heavy Lies the Crown," & "Bring it Down"--ranked up there with some of the band's best. Certainly got my head banging, anyway.

 

Interesting (or maybe not) sidenote: I had to submit a sample review for consideration before getting the Hardrock Haven gig, and I actually wrote a rough draft review of the new Showdown album. In the end I wasn't happy enough with it though (the review, not the CD) and ended up submitting a review for Shotgun Revolution: "Join the Revolution" instead, which resulted in me getting the job.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
