Drum Wars Live
Review by Gary Hill
This live recording definitely lands under metal because most of the music fits.

Carmine & Vinnie Appice - Drum Wars: The Ultimate Battle DVD
Review by Gary Hill
The premise is interesting. Two brothers, both legends of the rock world (think Vanilla Fudge, Black Sabbath and more), both drummers, put together a show down to see which of them is the ultimate drummer. Let’s just say one thing right out front – both of these guys are incredible and I know you’ve heard their work on lots and lots of music, even if you might not know the names off hand.

Cactus - Live DVD
Review by Gary Hill
I admit it; I’m a progressive rock and heavy metal junkie. That doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate good old blues oriented 1970’s styled rock – who doesn’t?

Review by Gary Hill
Anybody remember the power trio? Well, have to say that I do, and I generally found that when a power trio was on - they rocked!

Heaven and Hell - Live in Hoffman Estates, IL, September, 2007
Review by Greg Olma
For those of you who don’t know who Heaven and Hell is, it is basically Black Sabbath Mk III. Although the original lineup is considered the best (not by this writer), this version definitely has a high regard among all heavy metal fans.

Heaven and Hell - Live Radio City Music Hall 2007 DVD
Review by Greg Olma
This tour and now DVD has been a long time coming. I always felt that the Dio era of Black Sabbath was overshadowed by the original line-up.

Travers & Appice - Pat Travers and Carmine Appice – The Balls Album
Review by G. W. Hill

This hard rocking album really works pretty well. There is nothing here that’s entirely unique or original in terms of songwriting.

Vanilla Fudge - Renaissance
Review by Gary Hill
Vanilla Fudge may not be progressive rock, or they might. Either way they have seriously influenced and impacted prog rock from the beginnings and I've always included them there.

Vanilla Fudge - The Beat Goes On
Review by Steve Alspach
One criticism of progressive music is that it takes itself too seriously. This album is the poster child for that argument.

Black Sabbath - The Rules of Hell
Review by Rick Damigella
Like the opening of an arcane tome of eldritch and forbidden knowledge, Black Sabbath’s The Rules of Hell have been put forth. After a seeming eternity of a wait, every album from the Ronnie James Dio-era of Black Sabbath have finally been given a proper re-mastering and re-release in this must have box set.

Vanilla Fudge - Then And Now
Review by Gary Hill
No one can fault the musical performances on this one. Vanilla Fudge has always been an incredible band capable of creating and producing incredibly complex and powerful arrangements, and this album is no exception to that rule. No, the real problem here comes in the form of repetition.

Carmine Appice - Ultimate Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill
An album like this could be a tricky venture. Essentially the concept is a series of songs with the same basic core band.

Vanilla Fudge - Vanilla Fudge
Review by Gary Hill
The Fudge is back! I'm sure we can all sit around and debate for ever if they are truly prog or not, but the truth of the matter is, even if they weren't early prog, and I am not sure the answer to that, they influenced so much prog that they have earned an honorary mention.
