Silvertomb debut “Insomnia”, Hit The Road With Life Of Agony


Without even hearing a note, the new project featuring former Type O Negative members Kenny Hickey and Johnny Kelly already had a spot on our “Most Anticipated Of 2018” list that we posted in January (Don’t believe us? Click here). [Read more…]

Modern Mimes Preview Next Full-Length With New Single “Stare”

I became aware of Fort Lauderdale’s Modern Mimes after their cover of Type O Negative’s “I Don’t Wanna Be Me” was released and, quite frankly, was pretty blown away. As a tattoo-emblazoned, TON-loving uber fan (As in, bought the Playgirl and had it signed…or bought tickets at a far away outdoor amphitheater to see them despite the set being just an opening slot for Queensryche) I was impressed not only because it takes some chutzpah to cover Type O in the first place but then to take on one of the “modern” tracks to boot? Get outta here! But they did it justice and managed to elevate it beyond the original.  [Read more…]

Ex/Current Members of Easter Bloodhounds, Test Meat And textbookcopilot Join Forces In forktie, Debut “Spores”

The measure of a good debut song is something that’s timeless: It sounds like a song you’ve heard before but can’t quite place it but it also sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard at the same time. Still with us? Great! Because that’s exactly the sort of reaction that “Spores”, by forktie, evokes on each consequent play through. [Read more…]

Untitled Metal Column: Volume 13 (Nuke Everything, “No Control”)

It seems that 2018 is the year for resurrecting old columns here and the latest single from Nuke Everything seemed to be the perfect excuse to bring back “Untitled Metal Column”! Also, holy shit, we haven’t done one of these in almost three years? And holy shit! We’ve been around for over three years?!?! [Read more…]

Singles! blindspot, “All I Am”

 

 

It takes a special kind of band to bring “Singles!” out of mothballs and even more special when said band isn’t Misery Loves Co. (Who have been the focus of the last two of these posts) That “special kind of band” in this case is Boston’s own blindspot who just released new single “All I Am”, with a new video to boot.

Singles! Misery Loves Co., “Suburban Breakdown”

The last time our Singles! column was resurrected was because of Misery Loves Co. so it’s fitting that they’re the reason for a new piece under that header. But you read that right: Misery Loves Co., the Swedish Industrial juggernauts, has risen from the ashes of the aughts like a phoenix first with single “Would You?” (Released back in June, read our take here) and now with “Suburban Breakdown”.

Harborlights Release “Riding Ladders” Off Upcoming EP, Record Release Show On July 30th

Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to a lot of Cave In lately, but putting on “Riding Ladders”, latest single from Harborlights (Off their upcoming EP due on July 30th), reminds me a great deal of an instrumental version of those fellow Boston post/prog rockers. Think the early progressive bits of Until Your Heart Stops that morphed into Jupiter with a full on conclusion that lurches into a Pelican-like juggernaut at the conclusion.
