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.

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?

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!

NOISE - Echoes

Music for the sophisticated listener... Echoes, by Icelandic band NOISE.

Miracle of Sound - Level 4

We focus on awesome video game inspired music this week as Tali immerses herself in Level 4 from Ireland's Miracle of Sound.

Kidneythieves - The Invisible Plan

While we all eagerly awaited the next EP from Kidneythieves, why not kick back with an old one ? The Invisible Plan

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?

Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever

Paul Jack retro-reviews Tom Petty's first solo album, the 1989 classic Full Moon Fever. How has it stood the test of time, and what exactly was a yuppie?

Corrington Wheeler

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

Acer Fury - Crazy King

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

Kidneythieves - Trypt0fanatic

Ever discovered cool music through the medium of video games? Deus Ex fan Tali did. Check out her album review.

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!
