starthumbIf you are a fan of  post grunge, arena sounding rock and you can only afford to buy one album this month, then I suggest you return the new Creed album to the shelf immediately and do yourself a well deserved favour and pick up a copy of 'Peace Machine' instead.......

AfterHoursCover_thmbOver the years there have been far too many atrocious bands claiming to the new Hanoi Rocks or the next New York Dolls...every once in a while a band comes along that is actually worthy of that title; a decade ago we had D Generation, then a few years back we had The Star Spangles, and now we have Prima Donna.

outthumbapproved_small"Thud!" -  that's the sound of my chin hitting the ground midway through 'Out Of My System' the lead track off Outcry Collective's debut album 'Articles'. We may have been slow on the uptake with these guys but when we were tipped off to give this album a spin we never guessed it would be quite this fucking good.

souldoctorNobody likes going to see the doctor, especially not this time of year, but did Über Röck really just request I go test my hearing with someone called the Soul Doctor?
