Accept – Death Row – Review

June 1, 1995

Death Row moves Accept into the ’90s under the power of Hoffman’s rock solid, aggressive guitar style and Udo’s piercing growl.

The Pietasters – OoLooLoo – Review

June 1, 1995

I was disappointed with this new offering from these ska masters. Resident ska experts Stacey and Opie agree with me: Something is missing from OoLooLoo.

Krug – Review

June 1, 1995

If the name’s not cool enough for you, the music is. These Canadians bash out their pissed off barrage in the tradition of field artillery and napalm.

Ugly Stick – Review

May 1, 1995

The Helmet/Tool clones are piling up like cop cars in the The Blues Brothers movie. Another attitude band to fill the void until Helmet and Tool return.

Ednaswap – Review

May 1, 1995

Man, I’m a sucker for intense female vocalists. Annie Preven sings her ass off on Ednaswap’s self-titled CD. The girl’s got rhythm.

Ecolyn – As The World – Review

May 1, 1995

Think Kansas-Dream Theatre-Yes. Sporting amazing, choral vocals, heavy organs, hot bass, and drumming with complex, quasi-jazz musical structures.

Beowulf – 2¢ – Review

May 1, 1995

Beowülf, like Suicidal Tendencies, was one of the premier skatepunk bands of Venice Beach back in the days of yore. They has returned with 2¢.

Bad Seed – Review

May 1, 1995

Almost Soundgarden, almost early Metallica, but they never get that keyed up. A sludged-out-Sabbath-drone, nice vocal harmonies and a leaden low-end thud.
