Black Viper – Hellions of Fire (Woah You Guys Do Power and/or Speed Metal?)

  Sheah, we do power metal and/or speed metal on occasion. Got a problem with the gap in reviews? Huh? Deal with it (sunglasses drop), because most of it sucks hard. Too old school and/or not enough modern bite. Unlike thrash, which the majority of us can give a pass to regardless of how old […]

Double Header – Featuring Lost Horizon

It's a two-for-one today at Deaf Sparrow, with this new feature of ours.  Actually, it's a convenient, simple way for us to be lazy while pretending to be productive, because we can fit essentially two reviews into one article, and it will probably never happen again.  In our defense past our own admission of guilt, […]
