Lo-Pro, Disintegration Effect: Album Review

For a hot second I was tempted to base this review solely on the 30 second clips that were released via Amazon because my faith in Lo-Pro is that high but I felt it would ultimately be a disservice to the band and the body of work. I’m glad I waited though because while the teasers were epic in their own right, the finished product is absolutely jaw dropping. On their third album, the first thing longtime Lo-Pro fans are […]

Battlefield of the Mind soundtrack: Album Review

Never mind the ridiculously heavy subject matter in the documentary of the same name for the moment, it’s the heavy music of Battlefield Of The Mind that has a “mind” of its’ own and sets this apart from other film companion pieces.

Support Good Music in 2011: Chapter 6 (Life On Planet 9)

I need to preface this with a statement: I am biased when it comes to vocalist Pete Murray and any of the projects he is involved in. On my top vocalists of all time list, he’s in the Top 5. Easily. His work in Ultraspank, Lo-Pro, and now Life on Planet 9 are astounding and, unfortunately, largely overlooked by the mainstream. To think that someone capable of such aggression on Ultraspank classics like “Burnt” and “Jackass” could transition and pull off moments of beauty […]
