REVIEW : LOVE AND A .38 / NOMADS (2016)

Love and A .38 is a rock band that consists of four guys from different parts of the country, whose varied and shared experiences, triumphs and failures have brought them all to Los Angeles with that same conclusion; to play rock 'n' roll in the way it should be played!! Since forming in 2009, the band has done its fair share of touring, traveling throughout the southwest and up and down the west coast of the United States.  “As tough as it is to do as an independent band, It’s always a thrill to pile in a van with nothing but rock n roll and open road,” says frontman Ryan Hudson. “The money is tight, sometimes worse than tight… but the memories and experiences are absolutely priceless.”

REVIEW : C.O.P. UK / No Place For Heaven (2016)

To tell the truth here, the band of C.O.P. UK was completely unknown to me till the day that I crushed onto the lyric video of "No Place For Heaven" in you-tube!! A superb slice of pure Euro-melodic hard rock heaven with a Def Leppard vibe in it that grabbed me at once and left me hungry for more music from this band.

Sixx:A.M.–featuring bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist Dj Ashba, and vocalist/producer James Michael–have announced they will release a new single, “Rise,” on March 1.
The song will be from a forthcoming first volume of a double album, coming this year.
Of the single’s message, Sixx said, “We are not a political band, but we are extremely reflective. During the making of this album, we were under the same media siege as the rest of the world, so ‘Rise’ came out of that and hopefully reminds people that we all have a voice.”
Michael added, “Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change. ‘Rise’ is about how we find ourselves at a global tipping point and how it is our duty as citizens of this world to come together, communicate with one another and rise up to demand more of ourselves and our leaders.”
