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.

Recent reviews

Thunderbird - Heavyweight

2016 release Heavyweight... A raw and punchy album from Thunderbird, in the style of the golden era of Oz Rock.

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.

Victims Of The New Math - Satellite Head

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

A selction of our full album reviews

Infant Sorrow - Get Him To The Greek

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!

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?

Rival Sons - Head Down

We said... Time for something new and exciting - Head Down by Rival Sons. Heck, it's been a long time since PJ got so interested in a new band!

Royal Republic - We are the Royal

Fun, light, danceworthy pop rock from Sweden? Check out what our reviewer thought of this cheeky album.

Blue Oyster Cult and their eponymous first album.

Douglas Adams once wrote that the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything is 42. Paul Jack travels back in time 42 years to the early days of Blue Oyster Cult. Tune in for a history trip. No Cully Stout Beer in sight.

Ayria - Plastic Makes Perfect

Tali checks out Aryia's electronica masterwork.

Corrington Wheeler

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

The House That Dirt Built by The Heavy

If Borderlands 2 themed music inspires you to check out the band behind the cool tunes then look no further than this review of The Heavy's 2009 offering.

Abney Park - Aether Shanties

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!

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!

Dio - Magica

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.
