Song Review by Anselm Anderson Californian Hard Rockers King's County has been working hard this past year on a new album, including the latest single, 'Holding On'. A follow-up to the ultra-popular 'Equilibrium' with the video amassing over 450k YouTube views. Produced by Chuck Alzakian at Pearl Sound Studios in LA, the song is about moving on from past bad relationships.  "Holding On" has the same metal vibes as the 2000's radio-friendly acts like Seether and 3 Day's Grace. The explosive opening chords of guitarists Steve Bell and Bill Kania capture the listener's attention. Vocalist Dexter's husky voice resonates over a gritty and energetic riff.

  Album Review by Anselm Anderson Multi-National Rock act Karmin Line get on board with their debut LP Like A Machine, released a couple of weeks ago. Formed during the Covid Pandemic in UAE, the band is led by the soulful vocals of Greg Brown and is joined by guitarists- Tristan Surina and Frank Bassiouni, bassist Petar Milosevic and drummer Danny Langston. The band lean heavily towards influences of Thin Lizzy and Led Zeppelin with groove-orientated riffs and catchy tunes. Let's get into the album, shall we? 'Bridges of Neptune' is a soulful track with a groovy riff reminiscent of the boys back from the Town. Next is the funky 'King of the Day' with a sense of swagger and singalong verses.
