Hard Rock Hell AOR 2017 Highlights: Friday

Gloriously, the gods of weather have treated us here at Hard Rock Hell by getting all of the rain out overnight so we don’t have to suffer through it. This is especially welcome as the suffering is real. If you don’t have a hangover this morning, you are not experiencing a rock and roll festival properly. With pounding headaches, a ...

RAMzine Classic: Judas Priest - Sin after Sin

RAMzine Classic: Judas Priest – Sin After Sin

Judas Priest Sin after Sin was released 8th April 1977 through CBS Records. Who would have thought that Judas Priest started their incredible journey in 1969. Their first album was brought out in 1974 and entitled Rocka Rolla. My favourite album from Priest is without doubt Sin after Sin released in 1977 mainly due to the fact it brings back memories spending my time ...

King King + Broken Witt Rebels: The Robin 2, 2017
