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.
