If you’re looking to get your fix for bombastic Industrial-tinged Electro bangers in 2019 then look no further because Alpha Bionic from Gabriel and the Apocalypse is almost here! Filled with biting lyrics backed by chugging riffs and a massive wall of electronic ecstasy, Gabriel and the Apocalypse expand their already established sound to get exquisite results on their latest.[Read more…]
I have no fucks to give when it comes to my love for Powerman 5000.
Powerman 5000 has been on a creative roll since Anyone For Doomsday? was shelved back in 2001, like a band burdened constantly with something to prove, and continue to astound with their latest slab of spaced out rawk, New Wave. [Read more…]
It’s always a good indicator of a hiatused (Not a real word) or previously kaput band’s intentions when they not only return with a new full-length but also a plethora of material soon after. Case in point, the newly resurrected Flaw who are set to unleash a new EP barely a year after comeback LP Divided We Fall was released. [Read more…]
Who’da thunk I’d be here in 2017 writing ecstatically about a new Dishwalla album?!?! Honestly, I remember “Counting Blue Cars” from 1995 and absolutely NEEDING to get Pet Your Friends as soon as humanly possible and not much else which is weird because after hearing Juniper Road, their fifth studio album, I’ll be hard pressed with a reason to forget them again.
Flaw has always been a bit of an anomaly in the metal scene. Emerging at the tail end of the nu-metal era with bands like Ultraspank, Skrape, and Nothingface who all added even more groove to separate them from the herd, Flaw shined with chugging riffs and a vocalist whose lyrical flow was on par with Jonathan Davis or Corey Taylor, but with an even more intense delivery.

I’ll be honest: I haven’t listened to a thing (hed) p.e. has put out in almost a decade. I have fond memories of Blackout and still listen to it regularly but after that they became a band I wasn’t interested in for some reason. Forever! is the album that’s going to change my current status quo with the band along many longtime listeners as well as a whole new generation of heavy music fans. [Read more…]
Soulful yet heavy with a sound at times reminiscent of the rawness of Sevendust’s debut if fronted by Sierra Kay of VersaEmerge, L.A. via Melbourne’s Bellusira harness an energy that makes their second offering, The Healing, a 2015 shining light. Add some guy named Koichi Fukuda (Static-X!!!) to the mix and this band is truly one to be reckoned with in today’s modern metal scene. [Read more…]
Like the bastard child of Marilyn Manson and Static X with some dope thrown in for good measure, Murder F.M. perfectly fuse metal and industrial together to create ….y’know what? Forget that. You want to get to the nitty gritty? Murder FM is industrial sleaze rock at its finest. Kind of like Matt Kramer or Jason Bieler (The progenitors of The Lizard, look ’em up!) fronting Videodrone if you’re looking for a comparison. [Read more…]
For some reason, I just never clicked with Tennessee’s Straight Line Stitch. Gahd knows they’ve shared the stage with enough of the bands I really dig but for some reason I never paid attention. Friends, I’m telling you now, after listening to their latest EP Transparency I’ll be paying attention a whole lot more. And so will you. [Read more…]
For you New England readers, think of Chicago’s A.D.D. (Analog Digital Disorder) as WAAF’s Mistress Carrie fronting Sevendust if you need a comparison to draw you in. For the rest of the world, A.D.D. is quite simply a kick ass female-fronted hard rock outfit that’s on the verge of blowing your mind with their latest album. [Read more…]
