Motörhead’s Legacy

By |March 25th, 2015|All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk, Rock, The 70s, The 80s, The 90s|0 Comments|

Not every band can claim they’ve left a vast legacy that spans genres and decades. And not every band can make that claim while still being very much alive and kicking. Motörhead, however, can make this claim. Motörhead will tell you themselves that they are a mere rock and roll band. But everyone else […]

Rob Zombie: A Retrospective

By |March 23rd, 2015|All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 90s|0 Comments|

You might be prone to overlooking Rob Zombie if you were to compile a list of today’s top shock alternative rockers. Manson, who just released a tape, would probably come to mind first. But to skip over one of the 90s hardest rocking musicians would be a dire oversight. He’s not a has-been by […]

Summer of Ozzy

By |January 31st, 2015|1983, All, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock|0 Comments|

When you’re a kid you look forward to summer with a sense of excitement. The summer of 1983 was one I looked forward to with even more excitement than usual. I was eleven years old and I was starting to make that transition to my teenage years. You know the period when you start […]

The 1990s were an interesting time, filled with the arrival of many types of music and a unique expression of individuality. When talking about some of the best songs of the time, well frankly it’s not that simple to narrow down to one comprehensive list. There are so many factors that go into such […]

Black Sabbath – Paranoid (1970)

By |January 5th, 2014|1970, All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, The 70s|1 Comment|

Now here we have a classic. Black Sabbath’s second cassette was maybe one of their most popular ones. It sold in millions of copies in the US, and some hits published on it are still their greatest. It was also the only Black Sabbath cassette to appear high on the UK Album Charts.  So, […]

Black Sabbath – Paranoid (1970)

By |November 27th, 2013|1970, All, Best Ever, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 70s|0 Comments|

My mother has told me about how she used to listen to Black Sabbath in the school parking lot, feeling like a badass because of the heavy sound, message, and darkness of the lyrics. We forget sometimes what music meant when it first came out. This sound of dark, heavy metal was something revolutionary […]

IRON MAIDEN, “KILLERS” (1981)

By |November 13th, 2013|1981, All, Heavy Metal, The 80s|1 Comment|

Iron Maiden is the difference between Heavy Rock, which is often slow and plodding as though weighed down by its own bass lines, and Heavy Metal, which is a lot faster and a lot more aggressive. Born on Christmas Day in 1975, their self-titled debut was released April 14, 1980 and featured a gape-mouthed […]

“Here I Go Again” with Whitesnake (1987)

By |February 8th, 2013|1987, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 80s|1 Comment|

When I think of influential cassettes in my life, junior high was a time when I experienced a variety of music in my own little music world – my Walkman. “Here I Go Again” and the cassette it appeared on served as the Whitesnake anthem that carried me through my eighth grade year. The […]

Deftones: White Pony (2000)

By |February 3rd, 2013|2000, All, Alternative, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 00s|1 Comment|

The first time I heard the Deftones, I was in Sacramento, California visiting a friend. She was really into their album called Adrenaline, but it reminded me too much of Black Sabbath and Metallica, and that’s just not my thing.  Bazillion years later, at the Sanitarium Tour, I reconnected with the Deftones.  There third […]

Metallica: And Justice For All (1988)

By |January 4th, 2013|1988, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 80s|0 Comments|

There was a time in my life when my world consisted only of pop music. One day, I was looking through my cassette library. I felt so bored with what I had. I felt the songs I had been listening to were so one-dimensional. I went out, to my favorite cassette shop, sure they […]

Sepultura: Roots (1996)

By |December 30th, 2012|1996, Genres, Heavy Metal, The 90s|0 Comments|

The first time I saw the name “Sepultura” was at a Metallica concert. I remember Jason Newsted, the bass player in Metallica was wearing a black t-shirt that said “Sepultura” on it with a very gothic logo.
 
I had no idea what his shirt all meant. Later that day, when I went to the cassette […]
