Welcome to Rock Rips

February 27 2021

Crystal Ball:

Led by vocalist/actress Netta Laurenne, Smackbound is a heavy metal band from Helsinki, Finland. Their roots spring from involvement in such past bands as Wintersun, Amorphis, Stratovarius, Tracedawn, and even Lordi and Hevisaurus. You may note that her voice has a rasp to it, a hint of Bonnie Tyler gone bad, but we're sure you'll love them! Check out:

    Kingfisher SkyThis week's number 1 is by Eva Under Fire, who have had 13 charted hits on Rock Rips, and now 8 #1s. This song is significant because it's from a movie - we haven't had alot of sountrack hits in recent years - but more because of the movie it's from, Sno Babies. This movie explores the little-spoken of opiate crisis - an ongoing crisis that has taken the lives of thousands in Canada and the US alone. According to the CDC, 128 people die every day in the US from opiod overdoses - both illegal and prescription forms. Stream the video on Youtube and help the cause!

    IllumishadeWe welcome Illumishade back to Rock Rips with a new song, and another band we've not heard from in awhile - Kingfisher Sky is back with a cover of an Alanis Morrisette song.

    The Holderness FamilyThe corona virus has enveloped the world and we are certainly in a very different time - of pandemic, social distancing, racial inequity, and job loss. That's why we keep adding to our Pandemic Playlist, with many entries from the Holderness Family to keep us laughing: Pandemic Playlist."

    Top 50 of 2019 is here!

    DelainThe Top 50 of 2019 is topped by a Dutch band who's had 18 hits on Rock Rips, including 8 #1s since 2009. And #2 is from a Canadian band new to the Rips!
