REVIEW : DE LA MUERTE --- VENGANZA (2017)

Back in 2015, I reviewed an extremely interesting album from a band called De La Muerte (a rock band charmed by the Mexican "Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte" cult). That was a damn fine and very powerful album that grabbed me at once and left me hungry for more! Nowadays, the band strikes back with the brand new "Venganza" record.

RFL RECORDS ANNOUNCES NEW SIGNINGS, SEEKS NEW TALENT


It’s been a while since a new record label specializing in rock and metal truly left its mark on the music scene. But the newly-launched RFL Records is off to a very strong start. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and founded by Jon Marchewka, RFL Records was established in July 2016, and created under a father company, Rock in the FastLane. The labels first signings include Silk9, Black Knots, Hydrogyn, and Perfect Strangers (the latter of which features Ronny Munroe of Metal Church and Trans-Siberian Orchestra).

“We saw so many artists that have greatness in them that were not being heard, so we decided to use our platform to get them heard,” explains Marchewka. “I am extremely passionate about music and saw a HUGE need for the ‘people’ aspect to be brought into the business. RFL Records and our artists are not 2 separate entities, but a family of artist and label.”

REVIEW : WARRIOR SOUL --- Back On The Lash (2017)

Back in the early 90's Warrior Soul came out of nowhere and, for sure, made a big noise in the hard rock scene. A band that combined perfectly the punk with hard rock and along with a more metallic edge made an impact back then. Angry, pissed off and politically incorrect Warrior Soul released some great music and gained the respect of both fans and critics.
