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.

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

A selction of our full album reviews
Corset clad angry violinist, Emilie Autumn, shares her anger, thoughts or just some fun stories with the world through this brilliant album.
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.
Fun, light, danceworthy pop rock from Sweden? Check out what our reviewer thought of this cheeky album.
July 2016 release from Stone Kings, 12 hard rock tracks, quite literally from Creation to Devastation.
Like a long lost friend that hasn't changed, the sound of Thunder is the sound of raw guitars, great vocals and classic rock from the pre-grunge era. Backstreet Symphony was Thunder's debut album, chock full of hard rock from 1990.
Music for the sophisticated listener... Echoes, by Icelandic band NOISE.
Ghost or Ghost BC? Either way Opus Eponymous is a refreshing dose of harmony and melodic, satanic hard rock. Who said dark and doomy music needed to be errr.. dark, doomy, raucus and screamo? Cos Ghost proves them wrong!
Now what do we 'ave 'ere then? A laid back new album from Deep Purple? Really sir? A 19th studio album? Go on then, what's it like?
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!
Venturing outside the rock arena into a new area, check out Hearts for Bullets by Ayria for something cool and different.
This review is dedicated to the late, great Ronnie Jamed Dio, whose work touched so many lives. With thanks to the nice people running @OfficialRJDio for suggesting we write about Magica.
Continuing our trend of reviewing eponymous debut albums, this week Rock Hard Reviews gives Scorpion Child a spin, and likes what we find.
