STEVIE D. feat COREY GLOVER Torn From The Pages

Stevie D & Corey Glover - Torn From The Pages a...

Corey Glover of Living Colour fame joins forces with the maestro Stevie D to release an album of absolute gems.

“Your Time Has Run Out,” is filled with drive and precision that keeps the listener hooked as the vocals soar in and around them. “Wake Up Call,” takes a moment to get going, but with the emphatic riff driving at the fore, it keeps the listener hooked once more, the vocals are filled with class. “Final Resting Place,” is hook worthy, and top heavy, absolutely fantastic. “Strung Out,” slows things down, allowing for a moment of reflection before it drives things up a notch on the bluesy scale. “Fay,” a riff monster that takes the listener by the balls and does not let go. “Haunted,” is soulful. “Now Or Never,” drives the monster at full pelt, bringing with it something nearing perfection.

“Outta My Head,” is anthemic, filled with those big choruses that are a staple of the strip, and the Las Vegas showtunes of old. “Soul To Stone,” slows things down again and adds an extra dimension to the melodies and tunes of old. “Alone Again,” is filled with anthemic melodies and a driving chorus. “This Is The Time,” fills things up with great pleasure and takes a turn here and there, before shifting through. “Final Resting Place Reprise,” is a soulful melody mixed together that then flows effortlessly into “Faceplant,” a riff monster.

This masterpiece of an album is out on 6th September via Mighty Music.

Transport League-A Million Volt Scream

Transport League - A Million Volt Scream (album...

“A Million Volt Scream,” starts things off with a solid thump, bringing the listener right into the move. “1200 Goddamned,” is another electric performance that takes charge and drives right into the heart of the matter. “Monster Human,” drives things through, slowly and then with gradual speed increases until it turns into an absolute rager. “Dawn Of Lucifer,” takes things up another notch to twist and turn the spectre. “Vultures,” is another boomer and shaker.

“Vanished Empire,” takes things up to ten and then hits another a thousand percent. “Facedown Bondage,” rattles cages, and delivers a kicking to the teeth. “Slave In Orbit,” takes the time to build a groove, before it slowly twists the knife in considerably. “Creature Grunts,” is another savage display of intent that veers one way and then the next with great force. “Rabid Horizon,” is energy filled and chaotic.

“Destinations,” is big and bombastic, the perfect opener. “Oblivion,” shreds its way through and growls its dominance into being. “It’s Always Dark Before The Dawn,” takes a moment to let itself settle in before it goes completely for the gullet and snaps you in half. “Through Space and Time,” is another one that ventures this way and that, to produce the most epic number yet. “I Will Be There,” takes on a tad, and ventures to another realm, shifting through and producing something unique. “The Upside Down,” is another song that produces some masterclasses.

“New Era,” is orchestral rock and roll at its best, shifting the tenure and getting the anticipation just right. “A Different Sky,” keeps things interesting and unique with some flattering phrasing and some seriously ball busting melodies. “Resurrection,” flattens the listener with its melodies and phrasing. “You Are My End and My Beginning,” takes things up another level, shifting the tenure and the precision. “Behind The Wall,” is a fitting closer.
