Just over a year ago Evergrey released “Escape of the Phoenix,” an album that was not only the band’s greatest commercial success, but was also widely acclaimed as one of the best albums of 2021. At Sonic Perspectives, we rated it number one. While many other bands would have been content to rest and revel in the accolades pouring in, these Swedish…
 
Skid Row has always been one of the hardest working bands in the metal / hard rock circuit, but their touring schedule in 2022 is absolutely insane, even for their standards. With over sixty shows booked until the end of the year and hitting all corners of the world, it seems that nothing can stop these New Jerseyans. There’s also new music in the …

Some collaborations do take time to mature and to come into fruition. In the case of James LaBrie and Paul Logue, it took 11 years for their album to finally be concluded. Their story began in 2011, when James lent his voice to a song called “No Holy Man”, from Paul‘s band, UK melodic metal outfit Eden’s Curse. The pair remained in touch through th…
 
The march of time may bring about change, but the memory of those who lived the glory days of thrash metal in the 1980s don’t have to settle for a future that doesn’t possess the music they love, at least if Germany’s own thrash titans Destruction have anything to say on the matter. Having been left with little avenue for touring over the past 2 ye…
 
The career of music producer Terry Brown will always be indelibly linked to that of Canadian power trio Rush. Having worked with Jimi Hendrix, The Who and many others, Terry’s affiliation with Rush helped to shape the trio’s sound, and captured their wildest ideas into musical form, during what many define as their “golden era”. From the band’s deb…

There is no such thing as being too late to the party when it comes to hard rock, and few know this better than Kurt Deimer, who seemingly came out of nowhere a few months back and unleashed an EP’s worth of familiar yet highly unique odes to the aforementioned style. More discerning minds may well recall this enigmatic bass appearing in such noted…
 
Memphis May Fire need no introduction whatsoever. Their genre-defining take on metalcore that has spanned 16 years still has a grip on the metal world, and that grip doesn’t seem to be loosening at all. On June 3rd, the 4-piece will be unleashing their 7th record “Remade In Misery”, crushing any beliefs that the band is ‘going soft’. Diving back in…

There is something to be said for sticking to one’s proverbial guns when times get tough, and few know that better than Cage and Death Dealer screamer Sean Peck. Sharing a birth year with the godfather of grunge Kurt Cobain, his would be a far different path of swimming against the tide of detractors of old school heavy metal in the West Coast of t…

We want to make every second of the music matter. No filler, on any instrum…
 
With their recently released album “Epigone,” Boston-bred aural imaginauts WILDERUN take a deeper and darker step beyond their expansive, prog-leaning metal scores that so skillfully came together on 2019’s “Veil of Imagination.” The result is a record that is at once grandiose, complex, sophisticated and unexpectedly human. “This is certainly a “m…
