Wicked Smile, "Wait for the Night" Album Review

I've been an obsessed hard rock/heavy metal fan and collector since the early 1980s. If it's got a good guitar riff and attitude, I'm in. Wicked Smile - "Wait for the Night" Last year, Australia's Wicked Smile was kind enough to send me their self released debut EP, Delirium, to review. I was impressed by the 4 tracks of polished, melodic but heavy '80s style metal on the EP, which hearkened back to the loud n' proud glory days of bands like Judas Priest, Dokken and Skid Row. Delirium remained on my play list for quite some time after that review was published, and now the quintet has returned with their first full length album, Wait for the Night, via the U.K.'s Cargo Records label. I am pleased to report that Wait for the Night picks up right where the Delirium EP left off, and these ten tracks of crunchy, anthemic hard rock will have the old schoolers throwin' their horns, air guitaring, and banging their heads like it's 1987 all over again.

Bloodride – Idiocracy Review

Pay close attention to the drums thing in this album and my dear fan will get the difference I always tell about speed in the 1980s and speed in Extreme Metal. Pay attention that the drums are faster using a different bass drums technique. I mean, the difference was the use of only a single bass drum pedal so the drummer had to give more notes to play it faster. Now with the double bass drum pedal things got easier and bands could do the jump to a groundbreaking sound. Early Extreme Metal bands used a lot this technique until the use of the double bass drum pedal got well-known. Pay attention to seminal albums as Slayer’s “Show No Mercy” or Metallica’s “Kill’em All” or even Motörhead “Ace of Spades” and note the use of the single pedal.
