Single Review: Lamb Of God – Ghost Walking

August 3, 2012 |

Ghost Walking, the only single from Lamb of God’s new album Resolution, is definitely deserving of the attention it received from LOG’s loyal fans. The album itself is full of Lamb of God’s typical groove metal aspects, as well as pulling together lots of other genres as they’re known for doing. The album is definitely worth a listen to anyone who is in the mood for something heavy, technical and aggressive. Read More

Album Review: Agnes Obel – Philharmonics

July 31, 2012 |

It’s been a while, Rockhaq! Feels good to be back and it feels even better to be back with the chance to review a beautiful classical folk album. Released in 2010, Philharmonics is a number one album from Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel. But enough of the album’s history. The opener, ‘falling, catching’ is a very serene piano piece, which instantly introduces the album’s classical theme. Read More

May 25, 2012 | 2

1993 was a big year for music; the birth of Suede, the original Guns ‘n’ Roses played their last gig, Nirvana’s famous MTV unplugged performance and Tool released their debut full-length album. Tool are a very alternative band, who make music for themselves and their own passion and emotion. Their music is intelligent, witty and very unique and the lyrics are based on the opinions and thoughts of Maynard James Keenan. Read More

Opinion: Bassists; Must They Be Boring?

May 24, 2012 | 7

Guitarists are known for ripping out shredding solos and playing beautiful chords to swoon girls. Vocalists are known for impressive vocal work to swoon girls. Drummers are known to keep a beat and throw impressive fills in here and there. Bassists are known for standing in the back playing the same thing all set. Why? Read More

Album Review: Beth Hart And Joe Bonamassa – Don’t Explain

May 18, 2012 | 3

I picked a random album from my iTunes playlist to review and couldn’t have been happier with the result. Modern day covers usually consist of the trending music, but this album goes back to the start, to a time when musicians were musicians. Performed with passion and love, this album will leave you dragging your jaw across the ground for days. Read More

March 27, 2012 |

On the average Sunday morning, Arctic Monkeys surprised their fans with a video of their new single ‘R U Mine’. Immediately a sudden guitar wham introduces you, and the song’s first brick is laid with a complex vocal melody backed by toe-tapping guitar. Read More
