ROCKET REVIEW: OZZY – “Ordinary Man” (CD)

Ozzy Needs To Retire… Again…

BLACK SABBATH lead singer, OZZY OSBOURNE, returns in 2020, to deliver without a doubt the worst album of his solo career titled “Ordinary Man”… and let me proudly be the first to state for the record that it’s undoubtedly ‘ordinary crap’, and critics who say anything else are living in total delusion. It sounds like Romper Room metal. Firstly, longtime Ozzy axeman, Zakk Wylde, who has been back in the fold as of late for his live touring, is nowhere to be found on the studio effort, which is comprised of eleven absolutely underperforming tunes, and all I can do is scratch my head in disbelief, because this will most likely be Ozzy’s final recording output, now that Sabbath is over...

EXHORDER – Premiere New Single

EXHORDER have unleashed a new single titled “The Man That Never Was.” The groove-laden, face-melter was recorded during the sessions for their recently released record, Mourn The Southern Skies, their first in nearly 3 decades. Fans can stream the track now and pick up a limited edition 7″ vinyl, featuring the b-side, live version of “Legions of Death” recorded live from Saint Vitus in New York, on the upcoming tour.

“Formed in the late ’80s out of a common interest in speed and doom metal, Exhorder helped shape the “Louisiana sound,” a common sound shared between many metal bands from the state. By crafting chugging, tight riffs with a rigid structure, Exhorder made quite the local impression with 1990’s Slaughter in the Vatican...

Reunited San Francisco Bay Area thrash act VIO-LENCE are expected to sign a deal with an “as-yet-undisclosed record label” to cut a new EP.

The news of VIO-LENCE‘s return to the studio was broken by guitarist Phil Demmel in a recent interview with the “Talk Toomey” podcast.

VIO-LENCE released three studio albums between 1988 and 1993. The group reunited soon after Demmel left...
