Hard Rock n 2014 had great highlights (no dyed hair joke intended). From Charm City Devils making a bigger name for their brash selves to Chevelle‘s thunderous Terminal 5 show (and tightly wound single “Take Out the Gunman” ) it was a solid year. Buckcherry have also been hitting the road and maintaining a dedicated tour ethic, while Pop Evil  put out a very cool LIVE version of a “Trenches” video thanking fans for the solid support given the nearly unstoppable ascent of Onyx. Diablo Blvd had the best goth hard rocker “Follow The Deadlights” this side of The 69 Eyes and the Belgians killed it opening for Life Of Agony in New Jersey. Best of all is Black Star Riders new record The Killer Instinct, which keeps alive the Thin Lizzy legacy into 2015 and MORE than ensures/proves the genre of hard rock is still worth the fuss.

Chevelle have achieved their highest ever charting album with new release La Gargola,  the hard rock band’s seventh banger. Always one of the more actually talented popular hard rock bands, the Chicago based act have taken a break from touring to let drummer Sam Loeffler have some time with his newborn son. Fans needn’t worry however, as Chevelle will return in the early summer to kick some ass at a theater near you.

I love these guys. My band antidote 8 even covered “The Red” for shits and giggles at my recent birthday show in my hometown. That was a lot of fun, so I am betting the actual band’s current tour supporting a great new record and seven records worth of big riffs to choose from will be a real gas. La Gargola has some real killers, from the soaring and amazing guitar work of the risque “Choking Game” to the adrenalized thump of “Under the Knife” or the somber and dreamy “Twinge”. Pete Loeffler retains his usual sense of hooky insistence akin to Maynard Keenan circa Undertow, though the trio have long since proved they are their own beast.
