REVIEW : Devilfire --- Dark Manoeuvres (2017)

Let's get one thing clear here; this album rocks and it rocks big time!! Man, this came out of nowhere to rock my world and, for damn sure, this is one of the biggest surprises so far. But who is DEVILFIRE really? Devilfire is the brainstorm of Alex Cooper (Shy, Spike of the Quireboys, Ginger), who wanted to create a new melodic hard rock band. "Dark Manoeuvres" is entitled this surprisingly good album that grabbed my attention at once!

REVIEW : Raintimes -- Raintimes (2017, Frontiers Music s.r.l.)

Now this is another release that I was looking forward to listen. After the three amazing singles that I've heard (Forever Gone, Swan and Don't Ever Give Up) I was blown away and I was waiting patiently to receive the promo to write my review. But let's take things from the start and see some things about 'who is who' Raintimes.

REVIEW : PRETTY BOY FLOYD --- Public Enemies (2017, Frontiers Music s.r.l.)

"We're black on black.We're a sex attack.We're the bullet boys.We're rocking with the sonic blast. We're leather boyz with electric toyz. We're making noise tonight. We're leather boyz with electric toyz. We're making noise tonight" that was, and still is for me, Pretty Boy Floyd's biggest success back then, period!! Anthemic, bad-ass with tons of spandex and make-up these sleaze motherf*&ers rocked my world at once.

With their first EP and music video "Old Flames Die Hard" ( ), Aerodyne got the attention of rock fans all over the world, taking the decision of entering the studio in early 2017 in order to record their first full-length.

The Poodles are back with "PRISMA" the follow-up to the critically acclaimed album “Devil in the Details”!

The Poodles have released seven full-length studio albums and one live album over the past ten years and had discussed the possibility of doing an album featuring songs from other artists for several years. They finally decided that it was time!
The title, “PRISMA” is meant to reflect the difference in perspective that the band brings to the songs on the album. The decision was made early to stay away from genres close to the band’s own, but other than that, any song could come into question for making the cut.
In collaboration with up-and-coming producer, Dino Medanhodzic at Radionica Studios, the band came up with a slate of songs that span some 40 years of music, from the 1970s up to the 2010s! The deciding factor was the quality of the song where a strong hook and a driving riff were key ingredients.
Fans of Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Depeche Mode, Blondie, and The Swedish House Mafia are in for a treat, as The Poodles put their unique stamp on classic tracks by these and other artists!

PRISMA is out in virtual and physical stores on January 26th 2018!
