Interview with Trey from DYING FETUS; Reign Supreme (Relapse Records) in stores! @dyingfetusband @relapserecords


Death Metal has been around for quite a while now. I can recall practicing with my Ska band in some crack house on the Northside of Syracuse that must have had 20 death metal bands rehearsing, squatting, or otherwise growling over distorted guitars at any given time. It was pretty fun!

Interview with Brian Fair from SHADOWS FALL; Fire From the Sky in stores NOW! @shadowsfallband @razorandtie


Boston’s Shadows Fall continue to blaze a trail of hardcore inspired metal chaos all over the world, leaving little else but charred ashes in their wake. After 7 albums, the 5-piece is still pushing the boundaries of modern metal music and inspiring any number of promising young fans to learn how to shred. Seriously. The proof can be seen by members’ often-flooded lesson schedules while on the road.

Drummer Spotlight Interview with JASON BITTNER from SHADOWS FALL @jbittnerdrums @TAMA_USA @zildjiancompany@shadowsfallband @anthrax


Why did the drummer stare at the frozen juice can?

Because it said, “Concentrate”.

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 FUCKING EXIST. 

Drummers rule! We hit stuff, get peoples’ butts shaking, and ultimately determine whether or not the band is going to perform well. You CANNOT have a solid band without a solid drummer, so all you 6-string wankers out there with your tapping and flooded solos can suck it… This one is for the hitters.

I sat down with Shadows Fall’s percussive madman Jason Bittner on February 16th in Syracuse, NY to get talk about how he got started playing, what he’s currently beating the hell out of, and what he’s got going on in 2013. Take note: He’s available for lessons, touring, and recording sessions, so if you want a metal legend backing you up from April until August, I’ve got the guy!

New England Metal and Hardcore Fest 4/19-21 in Mass.; They forgot Meshuggah, but that’s about it.





So, if you like heavy music and haven’t had any good reason to visit Massachusetts lately, see above. The 15th Annual (!!!) New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will be at The Palladium in Worcester, Ma. from April 19th through the 21st, and for fuck’s sake… Someone’s been working time-and-a-half-overtime-plus on this one.

Anthrax, Opeth, Suicidal Tendencies, Hatebreed, Dillinger Escape Plan, Exodus, and an undercard that’ll give all those bands a run for their money. Looks like a “Must” to me.

Kudos to whoever put this together!

Shadows Fall Interview with Brian Fair

Shadows Fall has been a powerhouse in the Metal world for quite some time. Forming out of the ashes of several prominent Boston Hardcore and Metal bands, their music represents many of the best and most popular elements of the new wave of Metal music. But you knew that already…
