Upcoming project!

Introducing a new feature that will run on Rock of ages and Heavy Metal Time Machine each Monday throughout the final four weeks of July. It will be called "Trans-Atlantic Metal Mondays". One of the things I have enjoyed most about reading about Rock of ages is finding out the different bands that seem to have been more prominent in the UK than they were here in the states. So we decided that we would each pick two bands, Bill took two from the UK and I selected two from the US, but we will both be reviewing all four albums. So on the rest of the Mondays in July we will be posting our reviews simultaneously (or at least same day!) and see if we reach different conclusions. First up on July 9th is an English band who saw significant chart success over in the UK in the late 80s and early 90s yet they seemed to get lost in the shuffle over here. Further posts will go up on 16th, 23rd and 30th July. Hope you enjoy the reviews.

The UK/US difference is interesting and it isn't just in metal. Songs that went to #1 in th UK barely charted here and vice versa. It's pretty common, not the rule, but far from extaordinary.

Hope everyone will enjoy this feature. I have been listening to the four albums and I am looking forward to it.
