Rock Hard Reviews Home Page - Welcome!

Rock Hard Reviews is your friendly, independent music review site, specialising in decades of hard rock, melodic metal, classic rock and suchlike.

Rock Hard Reviews was created by rock fans, for rock fans. We love nothing more than helping new, up and coming rock bands get some publicity, promote new releases, and gain new followers. A rock hard music review might come with a slight twist of British humour, but we love to review and promote music from rock and metal bands from all over the world.

If you are in a rock or metal band and want a bit of free publicity then get in touch. Normally we write and publish in-depth, full page reviews whenever a rock band sends us their latest album and EPK. Digital is preferred, but we still accept a CD through the post. You can contact Rock Hard Reviews via our social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, or you can email us directly on . If you have a new (or old) album release which you think our readers should know about, then we would love to hear from you.

Buffalo Crows - Bovonic Empire

More heavy rock moos, err sorry, news, from Australia, as Buffalo Crows release their third album, Bovonic Empire. Sorry about the pun.

Second outing, and a slice of nostalgia from Victims Of The New Math

A selction of our full album reviews

Pendulum - In Silico

Tali has been venturing into drum and bass territory this week, as a backdrop for creative writing sessions. But is there something of interest to the hard rock brigade in In Silico?

Neutral Noise - Little Garden

Polish band Neutral Noise have a new album out. It's called Little Garden. Check out what we think of this cool titled treat.

Acer Fury - Crazy King

A slice of Germanic metal nostalgia - Crazy King by Acer Fury, a 14 track compilation of classic power metal.

Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz

Paul Jack takes off his rose tinted specs and dusts off Ozzy's early eighties album. Blizzard of Ozz marked the beginning of Ozzy Osbourne's successful solo career post Black Sabbath. How does it stand up today?

Tequila Mockingbyrd - Fight And Flight

Highly rated debut album by Tequila Mockingbyrd.

Alice Cooper - The Eyes of Alice Cooper

After getting her grubby little mitts on some of PJs old CDs, Tali picks out some noughties Alice Cooper.

Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman

So, in another retro review moment, what did Rock Hard Reviews think of Ozzy's second album, Diary of a Madman? (Not to be confused with Paul Jack's well known typo 'Diary of a madam' - Ed)

Viridian - Hope

Hope... The 2015 release from Louisiana band Viridian. It's a five track EP and a miscellany of alt/metal with prog overtones for your listening pleasure.

Creature Feature - The Greatest Show Unearthed

Creepy carnival-eqsue music from Creature Feature. Does reviewer Tali find every track fun and fresh? Have a look!

Corrington Wheeler

Corrington`s first solo album. A post-hardcore EP, a non-profit release in support of a worthy cause.

Muse - Absolution

Tali takes time out to muse over Muse's album Absolution. Does Muse's music keep Tali amused and inspire her when working on creative projects? Absolutely! (Tali has asked us to make it quite clear that she did not write this cheesy intro for her review!)

Megadeth - United Abominations

2007's return to form for Dave Mustaine and Megadeth. Angry, loud thrash metal by crafted by experts.
