In days with a world that's thrown out of kilter, bands like Slime are like musical call for action. Although commercially more successful than in the '80s and in general more mature than in the early days, the band is still authentic, stick to their mindset and is never tired of holding up a mirror to society.
With 'Queen of Fucking Everything' the end of the album comes far too early. Fortunately there is a 'Start'-button that you can press again and I can assure you that you will use this button after running through the album for a first time. Peter And The Test Tube Babies in 2020 go strong. Peter and Del might got older but certainly not calmer. These guys still breathe the spirit of Punk Rock.
If you are done already with the usual radio x-mas songs then let me tell you that L.A. Guns offer an alternative.

A couple of week before starting 'The Sound of Scars'-tour, Life Of Agony asked local bands to apply for the opening slot for each of the German shows. The ‚winner‘ for Hamburg is Blast Bomb, a band with a sound that fits in a great fashion into the Hardcore/Metal context of this night. Some hard... Continue Reading →
(8/10) Swedish hard rockers Crashdïet are a band that didn’t take the easy way. Their journey, starting in 2000, was a bumpy ride with many ups and serious downs. The first stroke of fate hit the band in 200 when frontman and founding member Dave Lepard committed suicide. After some first thoughts of stopping with... Continue Reading →

(8/10) US-punk ambassadors Zebrahead had their foundation in the late '90s and it's 'Brain Invaders' being theirnewest delivery in the here and now. The quintet recorded 14 new songs with the first one being a real musical wrecking ball. I had to check the CD if it's right one that went into the player. 'When... Continue Reading →
(9/10) Backyard Babies was never a band that was known for quick deliveries. The quartet from Stockholm instead is known for excellent records that see the light of day in an unsteady pattern. The common denominator of each of the seven albums up to date is the terrific interpretation of hard rocking music, which the... Continue Reading →
