Interviews

  • ANTHRAX - For All Kings

    It's truly difficult to overstate the prominence of Anthrax to metal fans.  Chances are if you grew up anytime after 1980, you're more likely to hear the word "anthrax" first used to describe the New York thrash metallers rather than the actual disease or white powder in envelopes.   Being one of the Big Four, they're often compared to Metallica, Megadeth

  • SOUL ASYLUM's Change Of Fortune

  • LAST IN LINE - Jimmy Bain's Final Legacy, A Heavy Crown

    Vivian Campbell is known most notably for playing guitar in Def Leppard, but prior to joining the band 24 years ago; he was in Dio and played on their first three albums.  Together with vocalist Ronnie James Dio, drummer Vinny Appice, and bassist Jimmy Bain they co-wrote three of rock’s most definitive metal albums – Holy Diver, Last In Line,

  • CROWN JWLZ - Much More Than Meets the Eye

    You can’t judge a book by its cover--but we all do it. It’s just human nature.  You see a recording artist with a quirky stage name and outrageous publicity photos, and immediately the assumption is made that she’s a novelty act. At best, maybe the potential to be a one-hit wonder.  However, very quickly into the conversation with Crown Jwlz

    Continue Reading.

  • THE RIFT - Many Influences, One Unique Sound

    The Rift is an apt name for a Los Angeles-based band for several reasons. First, L.A. was the birthplace of Screamer back in 1987. Second, Los Angeles is a hot zone of earthquake activity. Last—and most important—the band’s sound hits as hard as a six-point Richter scale shaker. The Rift is Aris Anagnos (vocals/guitar), John Anagnos (bass) and Ovais Malik

  • HAIR I GO AGAIN - Movie Review

    Hair I Go Again is an unbelievably entertaining documentary that will at various times make you laugh, make you cry, and trigger just about every emotion in between the two.

  • THE RIFT - Inventions

    Inventions, the debut album from The Rift is good. Really good. So damn good that I’d buy it myself if we didn’t get advance copies free by virtue of being music journalists. (How’s that for a ringing endorsement?) The press kit for the band describes their sounds as fusing “alternative heavy rock, with elements of blues, punk and metal,” and

  • CROWN JWLZ - California King

    At first glance, Crown Jwlz would seem to be a novelty act in search of attention. The contrived stage name, the way over-the-top photos of her dressed as gaudy royalty. There’s been no shortage of gimmicks in the history of rock n' roll (Alice Cooper, KISS and Motely Crue come to mind immediately). However, as in the case of those
