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.

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.

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

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!

Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 My Nightmare

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

Creepy carnival-eqsue music from Creature Feature. Does reviewer Tali find every track fun and fresh? Have a look!

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.

Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz

Paul Jack takes off his rose tinted specs and dusts off Ozzy's early eighties album. Blizzard of Ozz marked the beginning of Ozzy Osbourne's successful solo career post Black Sabbath. How does it stand up today?

Ayria - Hearts for Bullets

Venturing outside the rock arena into a new area, check out Hearts for Bullets by Ayria for something cool and different.

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?
