Gamma Ray - Majestic Review by Mike Korn You can feel confidence and poise radiating from this latest effort from long-running German power metal band Gamma Ray. They have been a constant and steady presence on the European metal scene since their mastermind Kai Hansen split from the legendary Helloween back in 1987. More
Gamma Ray - To the Metal Review by Gary Hill When Kai Hansen left Helloween he formed Gamma Ray. For that reason one would expect the group to sound like Helloween.
Gentlemen's Pistols - Gentlemen's Pistols Review by Mike Korn Right now, retro is in as far as hard rock goes. Hordes of stoner rock bands are trying to recreate the magic that grizzled titans like Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Free cast upon the land many moons ago.
Ghoul - Maniaxe Review by Mike Korn In the strange and rather ominous country of Creepsylvania, there is a forbidding old cemetery known as Monture Noir. It is here that most of the "Ghoul" sightings have taken place. More
This is the first time Ian Gillan and Tony Iommi have done any recording on the same project since 2006 when Iommi guested on Gillan's Inn, a career retrospective dual disc of re-recorded classics of Gillan's.
Girlschool - Legacy Review by Gary Hill In the last issue of Music Street Journal I reviewed the latest Bang Your Head DVD and it featured Girlschool. I saw the band years ago and their performance on that DVD was every bit as potent as they were in their early years. More
Giuntini Project - III Review by Gary Hill II saw a show on metal the other day (a rather cool documentary). In it Rob Zombie says something to the effect that no one can create anything new in heavy metal as far as riffs because Black Sabbath (and specifically Tony Iommi) already did all the cool ones. More
God Dethroned - The Toxic Touch Review by Mike Korn Holland's God Dethroned has been so consistently good for so many years that it's very easy to take them for granted. They have turned out unique and interesting death metal on a very regular basis since the early 90's and show no signs of slowing down.
Godsmack - Godsmack Review by Gary Hill Arguably, this album is one of the best hard rock/metallic albums of the last couple years. The songs are all very strong, without exception. More
Godsmack - Awake Review by Gary Hill There is a term in the music biz called "sophomore jinx". It refers to the phenomenon of bands with very strong debut efforts having a hard time matching the quality of that first release on the follow-up. More
Grave - Back From the Grave Review by Mike Korn Here is proof positive that the dead can return. Swedish death metal champions Grave were supposedly buried back in 1996 but apparently the internment was a bit premature, as their rotting corpse has risen here in the new millenium. More
Grave Digger - Liberty Or Death Review by Gary Hill Fans of True Steel rejoice! Grave Digger has given us another smoking slab of their brand of the genre. Opening and closing with epic metal cuts, the main core of the disc is in the vein of vintage Priest and Maiden.
Grave Digger - Yesterday E.P. Review by Greg Olma It has been a long time since I listened to Grave Digger. I remember them from the early days back in the mid 80’s where they fit somewhere in between the NWOBHM and the then emerging death metal. More
Grave Digger - 25 To Live CD Review by Gary Hill A companion disc to the DVD release, this one is a strong live album from a very effective metal outfit. As good as these guys are it should be no surprise that they've been around as long as they have. More
Grave Digger - The Grave Digger Review by Mike Korn I don't know what it is about German bands that makes them so tenacious, but Grave Digger are another example of the hardy Teutonic breed that has produced long-lasting bands like Running Wild, Helloween, Kreator and Sodom. More
Grayceon - Grayceon Review by Gary Hill Grayceon is definitely one of those bands that push the boundaries of heavy metal. With classical instrumentation fully integrated into their music they launch on a series of four musical compositions that combine the raw power of punk with the majesty of epic metal and the aggression of thrash.
GZR - Ohmwork Review by Gary Hill Ohmwork is the latest album by the outfit Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler belongs to as his side outlet. The group is not really a solo project, but more band, therefore it is little like Sabbath in terms of sound. Rather than finding that classic metal approach that Sab created one can expect something more along the lines of modern nu metal with some rap metal thrown in for good measure More
