Interview with Joel Grind from Toxic Holocaust; Chemistry of Consciousness out NOW @TOXICHOLOCAUST @RELAPSERECORDS

Portland, Oregon. While it probably reminds some of hi-end coffee shops, hippie-hipsters, and legal weed, my main interest in the state comes by way of a qualtity little trio called Toxic Holocaust. Consisting of Joel Grind, Nicholas T. Rage, and Phil Gnaast, these thrash-punk-metal warriors have been decimating audiences and eardrums since 1999 with so […]

Drummer Spotlight with Gene Hoglan @genehoglan @pearldrumcorp @evansdrumheads @sabianvault

What did the drummer say to the band leader?
 “Do you want me to play too fast or too slow?” Drummers always get a bum rap. Why is that? Ever seen a good band with a shitty drummer? No. Know why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T EXIST.  Drummers rule! We hit stuff, get peoples’ butts shaking, and […]

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 […]
