Posted in acoustic guitar, americana, folk, hard rock, maryland, Uncategorized on June 1, 2020 by vesalahde

hail minimalistic approach, the man and the acoustic guitar, sometimes less is really more, especially when the songs are full of emotion, beauty, sadness, solitude and darkness; an LP of brilliance. RIPPLEMUSIC

WARCLOUD – earhammer sessions

Posted in hard rock, heavy metal, texas, Uncategorized on May 21, 2020 by vesalahde

in recent years been quite full of all kinda aerial disturbance in Finland so based on cover art i wouldnt buy this, musically reminds of teenage years when heavy metal and long hair were all that mattered, maiden/helloween/motörhead/manowar/accept etc. catchy fast forward rocknroll/nwobhm-metal with tongue in cheek attitude. RIPPLEMUSIC

URIAH HEEP – salisbury

Posted in 80s, finland, hard rock, heavy metal, Uncategorized on April 27, 2020 by vesalahde

1st ever finnish metal band i heard, remember buying this as a cassette, still rocking harder than many new bands.


Posted in blues rock, classic rock, france, hard rock, psychedelic rock, Uncategorized on March 25, 2020 by vesalahde

zeppelin/bolan/lennon/american roots music.. just few things this variation of tracks reminded of, captivating/surprising LP from start to finish. MRS RED SOUND

BEESUS – 3eejus

Posted in fuzz rock, hard rock, italy, progressive rock, Uncategorized on March 24, 2020 by vesalahde

strangest LP ive heard in years, adventurous fuzz rock making your mind wander here and there never guessing what comes next, probably just easier to float in the fuzzflow. GODOWN

DEEP PURPLE – live in london

Posted in blues rock, hard rock, heavy rock, LP collection, Uncategorized on November 24, 2019 by vesalahde

remember buying this as a cassette in early 80s, later found the LP from some Helsinki flea market, the 1st purple album and probably the best live album ive ever heard.

THIN LIZZY – black rose

Posted in 70s, blues rock, hard rock, ireland, LP collection, Uncategorized on November 13, 2019 by vesalahde

Posted in hard rock, heavy rock, southern rock, Uncategorized, video on October 22, 2019 by vesalahde

theres this hard/heavy rock boom going on, nothing beats the originals

VOID VATOR – stranded

Posted in hard rock, heavy metal, los angeles, Uncategorized on October 19, 2019 by vesalahde


mediocre hard rock/heavy metal, only interesting thing was the intro riff to the 8th track, short reminder of the golden years of the 80s speed metal, then even that track turns into boring basic hard rock, at least the cover art tells whats going on in the brave new world right now.

VVLVA – silhouettes

Posted in germany, hard rock, heavy rock, psychedelic rock, Uncategorized on October 8, 2019 by vesalahde


if this music had a little bit o vinyl scratches like the good old LPs, you could think its from the late 60s/early 70s, heavy/hard rock as great as the originals, purple/heep/etc… world in sound

STEW – people

Posted in 70s, blues, classic rock, hard rock, sweden, Uncategorized on September 21, 2019 by vesalahde

Stew band 2019 - 3

after a while an album that was a pleasure to listen, as authentic as 70s hard/psych/classic rock can sound, innovative riffing, skillful vocals, groove, goes to same category as Charlies posted earlier.

CHARLIES – buttocks

Posted in 70s, hard rock, heavy blues, progressive rock, psychedelic, Uncategorized on September 14, 2019 by vesalahde

and finnish heavy psych from the 70s

PEER GÜNT – backseat

Posted in finland, hard rock, LPs i used to have, rock, rocknroll, Uncategorized on August 28, 2019 by vesalahde

Heres a good example of real rocknroll for the new so called rock bands who are just making lyrics and coverart for trolls and spammers, the closest thing to motörhead finland has to offer.

GONE COSMIC – sideways in time

Posted in canada, hard rock, psychedelic rock, stoner, Uncategorized on June 10, 2019 by vesalahde

skillful playing, beautiful vocals, faster than usual psychedelic rock letting your mind wander between the earth and the moon, what else do you need, some love perhaps in the middle of all this hate, greed and corrupted stalking? KOZMIK ARTIFACTZ



Posted in acoustic, desert rock, hard rock, stoner rock, Uncategorized on June 1, 2019 by vesalahde

one from the original stoner

GIN LADY – tall sun crooked moon

Posted in country rock, hard rock, heavy rock, sweden, Uncategorized on May 10, 2019 by vesalahde

forgotten LP from the 60s/70s flowerfilled love-fueled america? unbelievably catchy hard/country rock reminding of (to name a few) kiss, canned heat, lynyrd skynyrd, grateful dead, neil young.. KOZMIK ARTIFACTZ

GEEZER – spiral fires EP

Posted in hard rock, heavy blues, psychedelic, Uncategorized on April 18, 2019 by vesalahde

theres some great psychedelic heaviness, EP that felt too short.

ps. “funny” incident when i checked the spiral fires promo video maybe a month ago and went out, one of these Oulunsalo/Oulu criminals came making spiral shaped chemtrail to the sky, im aware finnish military criminals are stalking/manipulating my internet connection too, as they are stalking when i go out from the apartment.
