EVERY MOTHER’S NIGHTMARE – Backtraxx [remastered +3] (2019)

Forming in Memphis, Tennessee in 1987, EVERY MOTHER’S NIGHTMARE released two strong albums for major Arista Records in 1990 / 93. The band recorded their 3rd effort in 1994 but were dropped by the label, and the tapes shelved. Finally in 2001 Perris Records released it under the title “Backtraxx“.
After hearing from fans that the CD was seemingly impossible to find, the band decided to release it again in 2019. Remastered by Bill Chavis for HighVolMusic with a new artwork and adding a few bonus tracks for their fans, once again “Backtraxx” gets a new life, and enters our music lovin’ lives.

TREMENDOUS – Relentless (2020)

It takes some balls for a band to not only call itself ‘TREMENDOUS‘, but also use all caps in their name. Fortunately, the Birmingham, England-based trio deliver the goods with their colorful and exuberant style of Glam Hard Rock that’s heavily influenced by such legendary and diverse artists as Cheap Trick, Slade, Def Leppard, Mott The Hoople, Journey, New York Dolls, The Babys, David Bowie, and Aerosmith.
On their fresh debut album “Relentless” the swagger and confidence of this band is infectious. They have all the down n’ dirty catchiness of the aforementioned acts at their best, the showmanship and vocal power of Steve Tyler, and a sense of fun not often seen amongst young and emerging bands.
