“This album has classic grooves, vibes and melodies supporting the king.”
“The “Texas massacre” started with this one.”
“It’s full-frontal assault riffage and in-your-face lyrics.”
“This felt like fresh U.K. blood from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and it was top of the heap.”
“On their debut, Korn brought a new definition of metal that was a game changer.”
“This was full-on thrash energy that led the USA charge.”
“This is the blueprint that epitomizes everything metal.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
