One of the most requested Album reviews of all!
The highly anticipated album, a sequel to one of the best albums of 2013.
A band from Canada made their name known last year on the Rockcast thanks to a link to download ‘Gamera’ for Free.
Is this the sequel we’ve been waiting for?
Watch the video to find out!!

Finally! I have returned to some album reviews!
What a way to return, an album that I pre ordered since December last year! I have high hopes for this band, the album is finally released and I got my digital copy (while I’m awaiting the physical copy)
When I first presented this band on my Rockcast, I dubbed them ‘UK’s Answer to Alter Bridge’
I present you with Martyr De Mona and their new Album ‘Impera’

The design of the artwork is awesome, designed by Mario Lopez. Go check out his awesome website;

Was there any other albums from last year that you enjoyed along with Varga’s Enter the Metal?
Are you a fan of Iron Maiden? Saxon? or even Judas Priest?
Then you should be checking out this amazing band. This is Dendera, hailing from Portsmouth, England. This is a prime example of the future!!
I tell you why that their debut album ‘The Killing Floor’ is one of the best albums from last year.
I’ll be surprised if they don’t get the attention after a fantastic debut!
If you want to support the future and begin your experience, head over to: to get yourself 2 albums and a t-shirt! ALL FOR £20. Worth the Price!

The Rock Fanatic reviews an album that is an absolute bargain! I bought an album from iTunes and this one album caught my attention. 6 Tracks and it cost £2.49! No one has ever reviewed the album and so I come to the rescue. I present you with a band from Norway, Few Dollars More. I’ve filmed this review with a brand new webcam ready for future reviews and interviews via Skype.

So I’m back with an album review! I decided to give you my opinion on a group that’s meant a lot to me in the last 3 years.
This is Battlecross, I’ve played them twice on my Rockcast. Since discovering them on twitter, they have easily become one of my favorite bands of all time.
I’ve decided to check out their debut album Pursuit of Honor, which I think is one of the greatest debut albums (well in the top 3 anyway!)
They are owned by the awesome Metal Blade Records: My all time favorite Record Label.
