  • MINISTRY'S AL JOURGENSEN - From Rockstar to Author

    Lately, Al Jorgensen has been a busy man. With the latest and last Ministry album From Beer to Eternity just released, as well as his autobiography The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen, his schedule has been packed. This really being the last Ministry album, due to the sudden, tragic death of long time guitarist Mike Scaccia, one does have to wonder what

  • KOBRA AND THE LOTUS - She Is The Kobra

    Quality female-fronted metal bands are somewhat hard to come by. For many years, the genre has primarily dominated by males, but Simmons Records/UME band Kobra And The Lotus, featuring vocalist Kobra Paige, are here to challenge that domination. Classical composers Vivaldi and Beethoven may not seem like the most obvious metal influences. However, this is where Paige has her musical roots- she

  • ALTER BRIDGE - A Passage to the Fortress

    Alter BridgeTrying to figure out what makes Alter Bridge tick can be tricky; could it be that they are the perfect mix of talent and understanding; or is it just a ‘knowing’ of who they are as a band in this world?  Since their formation, they've put out one great album after the other, the songwriting and arranging is always impeccable,

  • BOBAFLEX - Bringing All Out Assault to a Stage Near You

    The feud of the West Virginia/Kentucky Hatfield’s and McCoy’s has become American legend, having become synonymous with any long-standing, bitter feud. The story has been immortalized in countless television shows and movies, and most recently, both a mini-series and a reality show on the History Channel. This is no history lesson, but the McCoy brothers of Bobaflex have a connection

  • Bach, Beethoven...FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE?

    There are few bands that have made as big a splash in the metal scene today as Fleshgod Apocalypse. With a reputation as both a slamming live band and an innovative music making machine, the five piece technical death metal group are bringing around a new phase in a genre that desperately needs it. Recently we got a chance to

  • THE ANSWER - Seeking New Horizons

    If you’re not familiar with the proposition called The Answer, then now is a great time to catch up on the buzz.  They hail from Northern Ireland and like a testosterone-driven rock n’roll machine they swept the UK rock scene away with an excellent debut album in the shape of Rise back in 2005.  They’re a four-piece which consist of

  • JACKY VINCENT - A Star Crossed Speed Story

    At 7:00 p.m. Los Angeles, California.  It’s time to break from band practice as Jacky Vincent from Falling In Reverse does just that to chat about his solo album.  “We’re all in L.A. at the moment having band practice.  We are getting ready to do a couple of small tours.  Latin America is first, then the U.S. tour.  It’s going to

  • ONSLAUGHT - Let There Be Riffs!

    If you love your thrash metal, then you’re probably still recovering from the wonderful and colossal Dark Roots of Earth album by Testament, or you’re still sunbathing in the ferocious progressive glow of the riffaholic Death Magnetic by Metallica.  But thrash metal isn’t just about the ‘Bay Area’; other countries have their fair share of talent to showcase.  UK-based thrash metal titans

  • WESTERN SAND - Sweet Home...Bournmouth?

    Quick—when you think of Southern rock, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Lynyrd Skynyrd? Sweet Home Alabama? How about Bournmouth, England? Say what?? Bournmouth, England? As in the UK? Yup! From the name (Western Sand) to the logo (two ram’s skulls emerging from a bonfire) to the music…there’s a young British band with a very American-type feel to it

  • STONEY CURTIS BAND - Falling Through The Halo Of Dark Matter

    Las Vegas!  Still sunny on a September afternoon yet not as hot as the 117 degree summer days that can melt your shoes.  Stoney Curtis, Chicago born and raised now calls Vegas his home.

  • INHALE THE FALL - EP

    When one thinks of hard rock/heavy metal, the city of Cork, Ireland would probably not be on any fan of that genre's radar. However, with the release of the self-titled EP from Inhale The Fall, this could cause many a rocker to break out the map for a quick geography lesson. Inhale The Fall has an interesting arrangement for a band—a

  • SOiL - Whole

    Metal fans are thrashing their heads for American metal band SOiL’s new album.  Whole, released last month, welcomes original front man Ryan McCombs back to the fold and marks their first album recorded with three of the founding members.  Other original band mates include Adam Zadel/guitar and Tim King/bass, two members who have been with the band since their formation

  • WESTERN SAND - EP

    It is amazing how many great, young, extremely talented bands are out there just waiting to be discovered.  Western Sand is all of the above, and more. By their name, their logo (a ram’s head skull) and, most importantly, listening to their four-song, self-titled EP, you’d swear they were from a small town in Alabama. They are, in fact, from

  • BOBAFLEX - Charlatan's Web

    A follow-up to Bobaflex’s 2011 album Hell In My Heart (which featured hit singles Bury Me With My Guns On, Chemical Valley, and a remake of Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence) has much to live up to, and the boys have taken on that task with confidence. Released on September 10th via BFX Records (the band’s own label), Charlatan’s

  • Reinventing Metal by Neil Daniels

    On September 10th, Backbeat Books released Reinventing Metal:The True Story of Pantera and the Tragically Short Life of Dimebag Darrell by Neil Daniels.

  • ONSLAUGHT - VI

    The sixth studio album by this down to earth, UK-based thrash five-piece continues where Sounds of Violence left off.  The song-writing duo of Nige Rockett bouncing ideas off Andy Rosser-Davies has gained more momentum as their familiarity has evolved since that last album.  Their delivery is precise and technically proficient as they bound through Chaos is King and Fuel for My Fire right

  • SALIVA - In It To Win It

    Saliva is back, and this time with a new singer, Bobby Amaru. Fans of the band will remember that the band parted ways with former front man Josey Scott in 2011 when he decided to pursue a career as a Christian solo artist. In early January 2012 the band announced their new lead singer as Amaru, who was formerly the front man of

  • THE ON GOING CONCEPT - Saloon

    The first few minutes of The On Going Concept’s debut album Saloon are a rather weird experience for a first time listener.  After about a minute and a half of hearing the ambiance of a crowded bar on Saturday night entitled Let’s Deal The Cards Again, the listener is then completely assaulted by the ear splitting opening riff of the title track. This is

  • AJENDA - Unrecognizable

    You see the cover artwork and you notice the first song is called Dirty Rock n’Roll which might well suggest one style of rock music like a sleazy, grimy and rough-around-the-edges approach.  This is where the twist in the story slaps you around the face.  It doesn’t sound the way you expect it to. Making their style of rock music
