New Rock Music Releases 2022 Recommendation from Doc - Deraps
There are times when we find ourselves wondering what became of straightforward, guitar-driven rock and roll. It is still possible to find it; you simply need to look in the right places. The Australian and Canadian power trio known as Deraps is a return to the hard rock of the 1970s and 1980s, a genre that clearly influenced the band in many ways, including the band's choice of name. Jacob Deraps, the band's guitarist, and lead singer, also goes by the surname Deraps, similar to Eddie Van Halen. And even if it isn't obvious from this song, Eddie and Van Halen significantly impacted young Jacob's musical development. They will release their debut album in the latter part of this month. They have already distributed a few singles and videos based on the album, so if you enjoy this song, you should also check out their other songs.
New music recommendation from Doc: Michael Monroe
A good number of you may have never heard of the Finnish rocker Michael Monroe. This man got his start in the music industry with a local band from Hanoi called Hanoi Rocks back in the eighties. Due to unfortunate circumstances, the name of that band may be familiar to some of you. I believe that the Doc has a copy of almost every cassette or CD that Hanoi Rocks has ever published, in addition to a great deal of Michael's solo work. This kind of music has been called glam rock, glam metal, and even glam punk at various points in its history. Even though he's 60 years old, he's still putting out some awe-inspiring songs. In addition to that, he is skilled in other instruments. If you enjoy this song even a bit, you should check out the rest of his solo discography and Hanoi Rocks's.
New music recommendation from Doc: Balls Gone Wild
The German band Balls Gone Wild comprises three members and has been described as having a "punk and hard rock sound of the 1970s and 1980s with a fresh breeze in the here and now." These fellas are fond of making the assertion that they would have been produced if Motorhead and AC/DC had an adulterous affair and had children. In any case, they will release a new album in a few weeks as part of their celebrations surrounding the band's ten-year milestone. They are working on their third studio album, and this song is the first single to be released from it.
