Geoff has just finished his latest album under the Operation: Mindcrime moniker, The New Reality, which is set for release…

XS ROCK: So, Quiet Riot now has James Durbin as lead vocalist. I’ve had a chance to listen to Road Rage and I think it’s going to surprise a lot of people.

Interview With Former Sister Sin Vocalist Liv Jagrell

Interview With Former Sister Sin Vocalist Liv Jagrell

    In my opinion, one of the best metal bands to come out after the year 2000 had to be Sister Sin.
