Irish Coffee - II (2004)

The year I turned 30 was the year when not even my own band but also my fave belgian hardrock outfit from the 70s, actually my fave organ driven hardrock band of all time, put out their second album after nearly 30 years of silence, following the death of their organist Pol Lambert in 1975. Well, here we go with a bunch of classic hardrock, bluesrock and pure rock tunes with wonderful memorable melodies, punching axework and excellent keyboards. Since most members were in their late 50s then, this is not nearly as wild as it would have been if they released it in 1972 as follow up to "Irish Coffee I" but the songs touch you deep inside and will not leave your head that quickly. So what? Get yourself this album and tell me if you like it...http://www.megaupload.com/?d=9HJWEULG

Lucifer Was - In Anadi's bower

Some cool norwegian band that brings back the original 70s prog and hardrock during the 90s. Lucifer Was have actually been founded in the earliest 70s by then teenage Tore Engen and some friends and took 27 years to unleash their debut album "Underground and below" in 1997. In 1999 they returned with a vengeance and an equally original, moving and memorable second album, "In Anadi's bower". Forget about AOR, Grunge, Sleaze, Stoner and Alternashit, everything that made the 90s the most cruel time for music...this is the real deal, this is classic 70s stuff far away from every mainstreamish feel. This was their last overwhelming album unfortunately, the two later records are just good...which makes them still better than 95 % of the rock albums today. Here is the link, enjoy...
