PAGENINTEYNINE – DOCUMENT 7

Who says you can’t go home again? PageNinetyNine just blew that notion out of the water. With the 2017 release of their Document 7 EP, these rowdy Virginia boys have done just that. After disbanding 14 years ago, the most controversial Presidential election possibly...

LISA CUTHBERT – HEXTAPES

If Erykah Badu was a white woman who made Celtic art rock instead of the Nubian queen soul she lays down now, then this album is what she would sound like. If that sentence didn’t pique your interest, then odds are this one is not going to be your jam. If you’re a...

KIMI KARKI – EYE FOR AN EYE

Finnish singer songwriter Kimi Kärki is soon to release his new solo album Eye for an Eye on August 18th courtesy of Svart Records. Also a cultural historian, Kimi is known for his impressive soloistic and versatile guitar playing. This whole composition is really...

GRIDFAILURE – SCATHED

New York’s own GRIDFAILURE has once again defied genre labels and industry norms with their new album Scathed. Scathed is less of a traditional music album and more like the creeptastic soundtrack to the zombie apocalypse. Dropping 10 utterly eerie tracks that are...

FIVE HORSE JOHNSON – JAKE LEG BOOGIE

Hailing from Toledo, OH, the Midwest boys of Five Horse Johnson are set to drop their eighth album Jake Leg Boogie. FHJ formed in 1995 and now back with their original line up, these “blues brothers” have been at it for a minute and it shows in their unique blend of...

PROSPEKT – THE ILLUMINATED SKY

One of the coolest things about writing for a music website is the free music; sometimes you get that stinky old egg, but you also get that aged brie cheese (I’m old, don’t judge), and I believe that’s where Prospekt’s new album The Illuminated Sky fits comfortably....

TAU CROSS – PILLAR OF FIRE

So the first thing you need to know is this: Tau Cross is WEIRD. The band name suggests prog, the album title (Pillar of Fire) and cover suggests old school death metal, and the music is… well I plugged it in and was impaled with tones of Venom and Motorhead. So yeah....

THE WEEPING GATE – MALICE & DECEIT

Straight from the sunny shores of Little Rock, Arkansas cometh The Weeping Gate, a Christian melodic death band with FOUR vocalists. The band started as a rock band back in 2007 and, through a slew of roster changes, have molted into what we hear now; a mix of...

PROGENIE TURRESTRE PURA – [.OLTRELUNA.]

There isn’t much of an opportunity to listen to a metal band from Italy. It’s there, but it doesn’t hop the pond so well because, well, ‘Murica. Aside from Lacuna Coil and Dragonforce’s new drummer, Gee Anzalone (all hail), you don’t get to hear much. Ever heard of...

NYN – ENTROPY: OF CHAOS AND SALT

NYN is a prog/tech death group that was originally a solo project (Noyan Tokgozoglu), but then evolved into a group with 3 members. They will be releasing their newest album Entropy: Of Chaos and Salt on August 11, 2017. This beyond technical outfit exceedingly proves...

CASKET ROBBERY – THE ASCENSION

The heavier subgenres of metal have been making a huge advance in the last few years.  With bands such as Lamb Of God and Devil Driver thriving in the fold, one can easily forgive the advent of so many new bands, and it would be even easier to lose the good ones in...

BONEHUNTER – SEXUAL PANIC HUMAN MACHINE

Bonehunter, the Finnish power-trio, is releasing their highly anticipated second album, Sexual Panic Human Machine, on August 4, 2017, courtesy of Hells Headbangers. The album boasts an album that does not just replicate past glories, but instead embarks on new...

MUTANK – W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.

MUTANK is a rowdy Canadian upstart band ready to make some serious waves on the scene in 2017. It’s hard to label them (and labels suck anyways but…) imagine if Mike Patton and Dave Mustaine got together with Buckethead and Les Claypool - this EP is what their jam...

LEGIONNAIRE – DAWN OF GENESIS

Boys and ghouls, get ready for a heaping dose of old school cool. Legionnaire’s Dawn of Genesis is a callback to the heavier underbelly of 80’s metal and is pretty damn awesome. From the get-go, Legionnaire reps traditional heavy metal without apology and unleashes...

BARROWS – OBSIDION

Barrows released their album Obsidion on May 26, 2017. The Los Angeles based band recently toured promoting this new album all over the U.S.  This instrumental album is said reach into the depths of consciousness - and let me tell you, it sure as hell does just that....

LIVE LIKE GLASS – TRAPPED IN NOSTALGIA (SINGLE REVIEW)

Live Like Glass released the video for their song “Trapped in Nostalgia”. This song and video are going to remind you of old school videos, where the focus was not the theatrics of the video, but rather the band, the music, and the lyrics. The full focus of this video...

AMERICAN STANDARDS – ANTI-MELODY

The mythological phoenix is said to be reborn from the ashes of its former glorious self, a story all to appropriate for Phoenix hardcore group American Standards.  Forming in 2011, American Standards emerged from the ashes of a genre that had choked itself to death...

NITROGODS – ROADKILL BBQ

If you have ever thought about drinking a beer with someone famous, Nitrogods are the guys you have always wanted! Get ready to crack open a cold one with your new beer drinking bad ass southern rock go-to Nitrogods. Ripped right out of the 90’s metal scene and...

MOSCOW – QUEEN OF SIN

With the repeated explosive success of bands like Evanescence, In This Moment, and Halestorm, etc, it is safe to say that the “hot chick fronting mediocre band” cliche isn’t going away anytime soon. That is not to say that every band with an attractive female singer...

CIRCLE – TERMINAL

While the guys of Circle have had quite an odd history changing styles, completely changing members and at some point even changing the band’s name, they damn sure know how to make the madness work in their favor (and the history is actually an interesting tidbit to...

BISON – YOU ARE NOT THE OCEAN YOU ARE THE PATIENT
