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.

Ian Gillan and Tony Iommi - Who Cares

Rock legends Ian Gillan and Tony Iommi team up with pals all in the name of charity. A compilaiton of new, rare and classic material covering a range of musical styles, but certainly not lacking in hard rock content. Read the review and buy a copy - WhoCares is in a good cause!

Songs of Anarchy - Sons of Anarchy soundtrack

Fan of the series? Wanna bring a bit of SAMCRO into your life? Check out the soundtrack album Songs of Anarchy. Its rather good...

Doctor Steel II: Eclectic Boogaloo by Doctor Steel

More weird noises oozing from Tali's evil steampunk laboratory. Trepidation abounds as the lab door creaks open, pushed by a slime green tentacle. The strains of Dr Steel's second album Doctor Steel II: Eclectic Boogaloo get louder, louder, and... Right, this has gone far enough. Just check out Tali's latest review of Eclectic Boogaloo, OK!

Flight of the Conchords

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?

Miracle of Sound - Level 2

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!)

Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 My Nightmare

The Alice Cooper Band reunite with a spooky sequel to a 70's classic.

Roses Unread - The Silver Lining

Roses Unread unleash a new album... The Silver Lining is a melodic scorcher, and you can check out the full album review here.

Sabbat - History Of A Time To Come

Paul Jack returns from his sabbatical to pick through a lost thrash metal classic.

White Zombie - Supersexy Swinging Sounds

In search of energy, motivation and retro Rob Zombie, Tali ventures into remix territory. Is this an album for hammock fans or for the industrial / alternative crowd?

Megadeth - United Abominations

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

Prosevere - Hurts Like Hell

Delighted to hear from Gary Segars, singer for Prosevere this week about the release of their first full length album Hurts Like Hell. And a mighty fine album it is! Go check out our full review.
