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.

Second outing, and a slice of nostalgia from Victims Of The New Math
A selction of our full album reviews
Who you gonna call If you have ghosts? Melodic Swedish occult rock outfit Ghost, that's who! Just how good is their new EP of cover tracks? Check out the review of If You Have Ghost to find out.
Rock ain't dead. The spirit of rock lives on in Motion Device. Defo. Go check out their inaugural release, Welcome to the Rock Revolution. And wish Motion Device all the best with recording the sequel right now - we do!.
An intense and varied compendium of music from Ireland, courtesy of Alex McDonnell.
Parley! Parley! Tali ventures forth from goth to steampunk territory. Check out her review of Abney Park's steam themed Aether Shanties. Air ship pirates abound in this musical treat. Yar!
He, he, he. Don't tell the regular reviewers, but while they popped out of the Rock Hard Reviews office Auntie Ethel managed to sneak in and write all about one of her favourite bands, Flight of the Conchords. She does think Bret and Jemaine are lovely, doesn't she?
Do you yearn for the glory days of hard rock? Whether you want to rediscover the past or find out what all the fuss was about back in the day, why not let Jorn fulfill that yearning?
Fan of the series? Wanna bring a bit of SAMCRO into your life? Check out the soundtrack album Songs of Anarchy. Its rather good...
Late 80's glammy cross between Led Zep and GnR. Surprisingly good, with a sharper edge than most glam rock.
Tali's quest to shout it out loud for commercial quality music inspired by video games continues this week with - surprise, surprise, Level 2 by Miracle of Sound. (Actually, old rock guru Paul Jack is rather keen on Khajit like to sneak, but don't let him know we told ya!)
Polish band Neutral Noise have a new album out. It's called Little Garden. Check out what we think of this cool titled treat.
Check out cheeky, cheery Infant Sorrow. It is a proper album for the Get Him To The Greek movie, rather than a traditional soundtrack. How great is it? Go read the review and see!
There's a powerful pop-punk sound coming out of Vienna these days, courtesy of Escape Artists. Find out more about their second album, ..Never Die.
