Interviews

  • Brian "Head" Welch on Faith, Fatherhood and Korn

    Brian “Head” Welch of Korn has certainly made waves in the music world, and not just for his songwriting and guitar skills or the success of the band he helped form. In 2005, he made headlines when he decided to leave the massively successful Korn after having found God. MTV covered the story when he was baptized in the Jordan River

  • AL JOURGENSEN - Never A Dull Moment

    The always insane, never dull Al Jourgensen is back with a new project called Surgical Meth Machine. The album, which goes by same name, was released on April 15, 2016. Some may remember when we last checked in with Jourgensen, Ministry had just released From Beer to Eternity, as well as his autobiography The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen,

  • FULL THROTTLE SALOON - Back in the Saddle Again

    The Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, South Dakota, known as the “World’s Largest Biker Bar,” might also be the most well-known biker bar. Having been a staple of the Sturgis rally for many years, and in more recent years being the subject of a reality TV show, proprietors Michael and Angie Ballard and partner Jesse James Dupree (also of the

  • THE DECOYS - Canadian Indie Road Warriors

    People think being on the road with a rock band is glamorous, but that’s because most people’s images come from documentaries about huge arena rock bands. Private jets, lavish tour buses, wild backstage parties. Reality is, when you're a young, fairly unknown band on a self-supported tour, there’s not a lot of glamour to it. “We had a bit of

  • TOXIC ROSE - Totally Tranquil

    Take your favorite Dimmu Borgir video, transport it back to the ‘80s Sunset Strip, add four young lads from Sweden, some horror elements and you have the modern day trans-genre morphing of Stockholm’s Toxic Rose.  They may call Sweden home and be wrapped tight in spiked black leather but their sound screams of ‘80s arena rock with a modern day

  • DEATH ANGEL - The Evil Divide

    It could never be said that Death Angel has had it easy.  Though second offering Frolic through the Park spawned MTV video Bored and provided backwoods chase music for Leatherface, a bus crash supporting third record Act III derailed them for a decade.  They returned to form on 2004’s Art of Dying pummeling out three more records between ’08 and

  • THE DECOYS - In Our Blood

    The Decoys are a three-piece band from the exotic-sounding  city (at least to American ears) of Kamloops in British Columbia, Canada. Vocalist/guitarist Matt Stanley said of their new album In Our Blood “We incorporated elements of punk, grunge, folk and country rock,” and that description is pretty spot-on. The opening track Don’t Hesitate is full-on garage rock at its best.

  • DEVILDRIVER - Trust No One

    After DevilDriver’s 2013 Napalm Records debut Winter Kills, Dez Fafara took a break, focusing on the rekindled Coal Chamber, thereby becoming Napalm brethren and giving DevilDriver a needed hiatus. Recharged after many long hours and burned candles they’ve emerged with Trust No One.  The insidious glare of the predator’s eyes ripping through its prey’s skin mimics the music, from dangerous

  • THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT - White Bear

    If ever rock n' roll needed saving, now is the time.  The last decade and a half has spawned many imitators, primadonnas, and hacks that have had the inability to provide the public with decent rock n' roll.  Sure there have been acts that have been worthy of a listen, but none that truly make you a believer.  With that

  • DANCE GAVIN DANCE - Tree City Sessions Review

    Post-hardcore band Dance Gavin Dance has never been one to play it safe. But what’s life without a little risk? With an experimental sound and seemingly unorthodox song structures, the group has effectively charged to the front of the pack. The band has worked hard for over ten solid years of music, despite near-constant changes in lineup. The five-piece act
