This is a site where I post reviews of CDs, DVDs, LPs, and concerts. I have been writing music reviews on and off since 1984. I ran a heavy metal fanzine from 1984-1988 called Metal Madness and have been a staff writer for Aural Innovations for many years. I have also contributed to Chrohinga Well (RIP), Bad Acid (RIP), Lowcut (RIP), Roadburn and a number of other zines as well. I recently moved to Portugal so please request the new address and do not send any music to Denmark anymore. Tak..

Fuzz Sagrado- A New Dimension (Self Released)
The Hobbit House Collective Double 7” (Fruits de mer Records winkle45)
The other 7” features Icarus Peel´s Acid Reign doing a take of the Chain by Fleetwood Mac in a very interesting and jammed out version. The final track by the Locker Room Cowboys appears to be an Icarus Peel track! It is an uptempo guitar driven track with a bit of a funky rhythm and some dashes of organ here and there! Cool stuff.
Organik- Morte Momento (Self Released)
Inside starts things off slowly and melodic but then just get super heavy, post rock like riffing but more heavy. Flatline starts with a heavy riff and has a lot of rhythm changes but it gets nice and spaced out with some synths in the middle of the track and a really spacey guitar.. Very cool.. Great dynamics.. Impersonate has a funky wah guitar and is interspersed with a brutal riff. A bit later it mellows out with some keyboards and spaciness. A longer guitar solo in the middle but a good mix of light and heavy.. The Eternal Boy and Paper Cut take the next 20mins. Eternal Boy features a female singer and piano but then we transition to like brutal death metal, which totally takes you by surprise!!! Powerful emotional stuff.. Paper Cut is something totally different and I really like that and the guitar sound is quite unique.. What a great contrasting song to the previous but it still is heavy as it gets going.. I love the end section the best though.. Unsettled starts with a nice melodic guitar and then a really jazzy funky vibe with piano some nice guitar playing. Calm takes us back to the heavy doomy stuff.
It is a very interesting record that mixes a lot of styles from Psych rock to jazzy to Death metal like stuff. Great Danish band…
Led Zeppelin- On Track- Every Album, Every Song by Steve Pilkington (SonicBond Publishing)
One thing that is amazing and discussed in a fair and balanced way, is the fact that Led Zeppelin stole a lot of material from older (or not so old in the case of Dazed and Confused) and did not properly credit the artists… It seems virtually all of these were sorted out and the original artists were later added to the song credits… NO one could get away with that today!!!
There were not that many Led Zeppelin albums in the end but this is a great book. He also discuss the DVDs and other archive materials (BBC sessions). I also liked the last section about concert milestones. This was really interesting.. Great job Steve.. Cool book…
