Graham Bonnet, Obscura + More
Here is a list of some of the albums that come out today.
Graham Bonnet Band – Meanwhile, Back In the Garage
Is Graham Bonnet really in his 70s? His voice is just unreal, very few musicians that are ten or twenty years younger are able to sustain a fraction of the power, perhaps Glenn Hughes being the only other singer that comes to mind. The album features the shredding skills of one time Shrapnel recording artist Joey Tafolla, known for such bands as Jag Panzer and Leatherwolf among others, and continues to cement his legacy as one of the greatest hard rock singers of all time.
Obscura – Diluvium
The German band is known as one of the premier technical death metal bands returns with their fourth, and final album in their series of concept albums. This time around, the band focuses on delivering what some have touted as groundbreaking music within their genre, which will look back upon for decades to come.
Gioeli – Castronovo – Set The World On Fire
Technically this isn’t the first time Deen Castronovo and Johnny Gioeli have worked together. For those keeping score, you may remember that the two of them worked together in Hardline in the early 90s. Say what you will about what has transpired outside of the realm of music, but both of these top-notch vocalists have crafted a hard rock album that showcases both of their vocal skills as well as the drumming skills of one of the most in-demand studio drummers of the last 30 years.
Axegrinder – Satori
The London band that stretched the boundaries of crust-punk, and hardcore punk to establish themselves back in the late 80s, is back with their first album in 29 years. Close to three decades later, but still, the same message to battle back, and challenge the authorities in charge, as the world through their eyes has not changed much since they initially assaulted us sonically.
