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.

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

A selction of our full album reviews

Mudvayne - The End of All Things to Come

After watching Ghost Ship and going 'Hey, it's that guy from Dexter!', Tali gets inspired by Not Falling and decides to dig out Mudvayne's The End of All Things to Come.

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...

AC/DC - Highway to Hell

Blimey, Tali turns her attention to the classic rock album Highway to Hell by AC/DC. Sounds like she has been hanging around Paul Jack too long and his taste in retro music is starting to rub off. So, what does Tali make of this 1979 Aussie release?

AC/DC - Black Ice

In 2013, we said... It's been too long since veteran rockers AC/DC released their last studio album in 2008. Check out the crisp Black Ice.

Triumph Over Logic - Soundtrack To Life

Rock Hard Reviews goes down under once again, as we check out Soundtrack To Life, the new album by Triumph Over Logic.

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?

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.

Ghost - If You Have Ghost

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.

King Diamond - Abigail

A retro review of King Diamond's classic album Abigail. Ghostly goings on in the haunted La'Fey mansion gives us an album widely considered to be among the band's best work.

Muse - Absolution

Tali takes time out to muse over Muse's album Absolution. Does Muse's music keep Tali amused and inspire her when working on creative projects? Absolutely! (Tali has asked us to make it quite clear that she did not write this cheesy intro for her review!)

Neutral Noise - Little Garden

Polish band Neutral Noise have a new album out. It's called Little Garden. Check out what we think of this cool titled treat.
