Rags 'N Riches - Heaven Is Only a Moment Away
Review by Gary Hill

On the one hand the guitar sound and production on this lands it in the territory of New Wave of British Heavy Metal and the more raw metal textures of the 80s.

Herman Rarebell - and Friends - Herman's Scorpions Songs
Review by Gary Hill
This album features Scorpions drummer (he’s done so much more than that, too, though) Herman Rarebell along with some pretty great “friends” as guests.

Red Tide Rising - The Rising
Review by Gary Hill
These guys have a modern metal sound that’s related to things like Godsmack.

Rhapsody - Dawn of Victory
Review by Mike Korn
By the bristling beard of Odin, what manner of mortals be these? The members of the Italian power metal band Rhapsody have taken the fantasy theme to new...and often ridiculous...heights.

Rigor Mortis - Slaves to the Grave
Review by Mike Korn
The tale of Rigor Mortis has to be one of the biggest hard luck stories in metal history.

Riot - The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 1 1976-1980
Review by Gary Hill

In terms of sheer quantity you really can't beat this set. It's a six CD set of live Riot shows. These all started as bootlegs, and as such the sound quality leaves a bit to be desired.

Royal Hunt - Paper Blood
Review by Gary Hill
I came to this disc with a bit of trepidation. Frankly, having spoken with former Hunt vocalist D.C. Cooper on a couple of occasions and finding him to be one of the best hard rock/metal vocalists out there, part of me was afraid to hear what Hunt sounded like without him.

Royal Hunt - Double Live In Japan
Review by Gary Hill
Doing a wonderful job of combining classical music with heavy metal, Royal Hunt's albums have always sounded like studio-only productions. It seemed like a lot would be lost in the translation to live performance.

Royal Hunt - Moving Target
Review by Gary Hill

Much of this album represents a nearly perfect synthesis of classical music and heavy metal. In many places, the two styles are so intertwined as to be inseparable.

Rudra - Enemy of Duality
Review by Mike Korn
There’s a whole world of heavy metal outside the usual West European/North American stuff that gets all the publicity.

Running Wild - Rapid Foray
Review by Mike Korn
When a sailing ship is cruising smoothly across the ocean, it is not the time to change course.

Jack Russell - Shelter Me
Review by Gary Hill

Jack Russell is probably best known as having been the lead singer in Great White. I have to think that it might be more accurate to think that Great White was his band.

Sam Russell - Impetuous Desire
Review by Gary Hill

If you give this album a listen, you'll surely be impressed by Sam Russell's mastery of the guitar. If you research the man, though, you are likely to be shocked to find out that he has a Masters Degree in Astrophysics.
