Interview with Dan Potthast from MU330; Playing #APPLESTOMP @irvingplaza @asbestosrecords

St. Louis, Missouri’s quintet MU330 is playing Apple Stomp on June 1st at Irving Plaza in New York City. AWESOME!!! Am I alone when I say I’ve never had the privilege of checking them out live before? Though primary songwriter and lyricist Dan Potthast has remained very active in the independent music scene, MU330’s absence […]

Interview with Greg Thomas from MISERY SIGNALS; Prepping new album right now! @miserysignals

Milwaukee, Wisconsin isn’t the first place I would think to mention when asking or asked about where good heavy music comes from, but it is the hometown of Misery Signals, and they are fucking HEAVY! When they bring their technical virtuosity, vicious crunch, and polyrhythmic mayhem to the stage with them, spectators should prepare themselves […]

Interview with Josh Sinder from THE INSURGENCE; New album Elimi-Nation out now on Innerstrength Records @theinsurgence

PUNK FUCKING ROCK! That’s what I’m talking about! Washington’s The Insurgence offer what every beaten down, worn out, angry-as-hell punker needs in their life: Blasting tempos, gruff vocals, and enough high-octane crunch to set any venue on fire. If the world was all roses, we’d have no need for such things, but it sort of […]

Thick As Blood “Living Proof” Album Review

Florida hardcore group, Thick as Blood, is back with their third release, “Living Proof,” since their sophomore effort, “Embrace,” in 2009. 11 tracks of high octane material in under 30 minutes is impressive. First impressions of the overall work: the performance execution is done well, (they all know how to do what they do and […]

A Life Once Lost Interview with Bob Meadows

Philadelphia’s A Life Once Lost are frickin’ heavy… Think Meshuggah with a slightly more Hardcore tinge. Since 1999, the quartet has been bulldozing their crowds with a sick blend of punctuated rhythm, technical riffage, and tortured vocals. It’s really fun to watch in concert.

Municipal Waste Interview with Tony Foresta

I frickin’ love Municipal Waste! This is the second time I’ve interviewed these guys in about 3 months, and they haven’t left the road yet. Upon finishing up an opening slot for Gwar and taking a very brief time apart (so members could go on other tours with other bands), the group promptly found themselves […]

Miss May I Interview with Levi Benton

The new wave of American Hardcore and Metal… Sometimes I just don’t get it. Maybe I’m just aged out, but the whole tight pants, dyed black hair, whiny-singing-to-growled-vocal- changeup just isn’t really my bag. I always liked my Metal and Hardcore angry, and my Emo sad enough to slit a wrist. A lot of the […]

Abject “Try Again!” – self release

Abject is NYHC through and through. After my fourth listen in an hour, I’m diggin’ this album a whole lot! Clocking in at just over 16 minutes, “Try Again!” is 9-tracks born of beer, barroom brawls, and George Carlin’s unique take on society. Politics be damned… This is music to get in a fight to […]

Gwar Interview with Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Odorus Urungus)

Faux red blood and green alien cum smattered all over the audience, elaborate monster costumes, and comically brutal metal music. Yep, that could only mean one thing… GWAR is in the house! This gang of alien musical misfits fits so perfectly into the epicness of metal’s over-the-top nature that one would be hard pressed to […]
