ENUFF Z NUFF/BULLET BOYS CONCERT REVIEW

Image
80's rockers ENUFF Z NUFF and BULLET BOYS brought their brand of hard rocking hair metal to the vault @ the greasy Luck Pub in New Bedford, Mass. Saturday night.  Tearing through a raucous rock and roll set of new and old songs, ENUFF Z NUFF was clearly a band that loves what they do. They tore the stage apart in unbridled rock and roll ecstasy and included the hits, "Fly High Michelle", and "New Thing" back to back. 

Performing in a reformatted bank  (Thus, the name of the club), leads to some serious acoustical challenges. The sound quality for ENUFF Z NUFF was spot on. In simplest terms, and despite being an almost nostalgic era act, ENUZZ Z NUFF displayed an incredibly diverse range of musicianship. This is how rock and roll was made, raw and exciting. They deliver.


Next up was BULLET BOYS, an 80's hard rock powerhouse that delivered a slew of hits, like "Smooth Up InYa", and "For the Love Of Money" While the trappings of MTV f…

Kobra And The Lotus Concert Review/Club Alchemy, Providence Rhode Island

Image
 It has certainly been awhile since I attended a hometown concert. But when I heard that the mighty Kobra And The Lotus was coming to a local venue I had to be there. The club is called ALCHEMY, located where another club called Jerkys used to be. Jerkys was a pickup bar that was as diverse in  attendees as you can imagine. Below Jerkys was a club called Hell, where on Sundays you could watch people being whipped on a spinning wheel....but I digress.
     Club ALCHEMY has created a  cool, vintage, rock club atmosphere. Very clean and dark. Pool table..classic video games. The layout reminded me of the old LIVING ROOM,( another Providence landmark club from a by gone era.) I grabbed a drink and watched the other bands in anticipation of finally seeing KATL live. 




 First band to take the stage was GRANNY 4 BARREL. Yes the lead singer has a granny persona complete with giant sewing needles in the white hair, and a rocking chair onstage. The band features an electric violinist who tore in…

SENSE OF FEAR---AS THE AGES PASSING BY

Image
SENSE OF FEAR is a classic heavy metal band that defines the meaning of the term "Heavy Metal". The album, "AS THE AGES PASSING BY", represents a text book delivery of perfect Molten Metal!. This is the way bands should sound. Raw, loud, un relentless and primed to take over the world.  Hailing from Greece, SOF do have an early heavy metal influence. Bands like, ICED EARTH, METAL CHURCH, and early MEGADETH come to mind as this album just tears into you. Heavy metal galloping at full speed like a runaway freight train. This is best played loud as hell.
     Check out "Slaughter Of Innocence", "Angel Of Steel", and the incredible guitar theatrics of "Black Hole". All in all this is one hell of a good record, chock full of every possible heavy metal standard you can raise your fist to. Enjoy this album. This band is poised to become unstoppable.
