CD Review: Tango Down / Charming Devil

indexTango Down
Charming Devil

Reviewed by: Roger Scales

Two years ago when Tango Down released Identity Crisis, I called it my favorite album of 2012 in my review. It was full of everything that puts a smile on my face and it exceeded the standards of what I call the “Three H” method when judging a record: harmonies, hooks, holding power.   That record still gets heavy rotation on this “80’s Guy’s” Listening Machine. ,24 months later, Tango Down is back with Charming Devil and I read a quote from Scott “Rif” Miller that TD has once again “raised the bar” and an expectation level from TD fans waiting to hear if the band can surpass 2012’s monster release. Did they indeed put on the jet packs and head even higher than they ever have before? “Charming Devil” has done just that with a 10 song selection of well written, well produced melodic gems full of harmonic flavor, a dash of metal and a smattering of memorable guitar riffs that just may put Mr. Miller on my personal pedestal of current guitar gods.

Webster Theater – Hartford, CT

Reviewed by: B. Cross

Thunderous heavy metal reigns supreme when Amon Amarth comes calling. Despite the unseasonably warm and humid weather, there was a massive turnout when the venerated band and friends hit the Webster Theater in Hartford, CT.

Wasting no time, openers Skeletonwitch unleashed the serpents with a multi-pronged extreme metal blend. With crowdpleasers like “Beyond the Permafrost” and “Stand, Fight, and Die” taking their place alongside newer material like “Burned from Bone,” the intensity didn’t let up for a second. Dual guitar assaults backed by a pummeling bassline and tight drum work, not to mention Chance Garnette’s high-energy vocals, set the tone for the entire evening. Read more

I had a “bad girlfriend” once. It’s not as fun as Tyler Connolly makes it sound in their 2008 hit of the same name. They played it to close off their show last Tuesday at the House of Blues in Boston. It reminded me why I like of lot of their stuff. They just don’t seem to give a crap if some people get offended at their lyrics, and that lets them explore less politically correct themes. Read more

Book Review: Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith

Joe Perry with David Ritz

Reviewed by: Roger Scales

Back in 1997 Stephen Davis wrote Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith and I remember reading it and being mildly shocked, somewhat amused, largely enlightened, very informed and never bored. This was a big deal at the time because many rumors had persisted for years about who said what to whom and at what point did the relationship between Joe Perry and the rest of the band deteriorate to where Joe left the band in 1979 half way through recording Nut In The Ruts. Was it just a rift between Joe and Steven? Why did he through a glass of milk at Tom Hamilton’s wife in Cleveland Ohio? We got the answers and then some. Read more
